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?

Cheers

Nicolaas

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