    business directory Link to this post

    Hi Folk

    Has anyone got any experience with making a business directory in silverstripe (I am sure it has been done). I would like to include:

    - field specific searches (e.g. in a region X with turnover > Y and more than Z employees)

    - listings of various types (e.g. white pages style listing and full page listing)

    - add to favourites concept

    - search history

    - lot of data per business (e.g. images, contact details, services, etc...)

    My questions are:
    1. Is silverstripe a good choice for this?
    2. Should i have each business as an individual page?
    3. has anyone got any experience with this
    4. what happens when you have a thousand pages - will the server have a hard time?
    5. what other hurdles do you foresee?

    Take a look at Guano.co.nz - that's a SilverStripe business directory with over 150,000 businesses.
