I have just installed my first silverstripe on localhost test site and have installed data object manager too, but I dont yet know if its needed, in creating a specific site search query based on two variables. it is going to be for a property let site (holiday baches) and I assume I only have to create content pages as html tables, to list bach number#, price per night, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, and location.
I will be creating a sub list for properties that fall under headings: studio,one bedroom, two, three etc, and each one on list I will hyperlink to the full details page of each property.
Then, I want to create a search query on left column, that works on search by budget (price per night) and number of bedrooms. How do I do that, is there a tutorial for this kind of thing? I need to have a shortlist that is easily hyperlinked, so viewers can click on the full description page.

Setting up properly: So should I just go ahead and create my listings just using ordinary html tables, and headings, and this ground work will make all 50 properties searchable via a query? Or are there other rules which I should follow when creating my lists.

If the search query is not something easily created is there someone that can quote me a price to do this for me, if I lay out all the content?
