    Easy to setup searchable database website?

    Hi! I'm looking to create a new website with one sole function: to enable users to look up a variable and find out where to find it. To explain, for example, it might enable users to search the name of a band, then it will display the music streaming sites the band is up on, such as Spotify, Apple Music, etc etc. I'm not a developer but have lots of experience with Wordpress, Tumblr and HTML before they existed. As such, i'm up for a challenge, but nothing too complicated. Thanks for any thoughts anyone might have.

    Youre going to need to know how to communicate with a database and how to use php to retrieve the information.

    Easy to setup searchable database website?

    It all depends on what would be searched. Some indexable items already have a searchable database setup for them. A great example of this is Netflix.

    If a 3rd party search service doesn't exist yet for the item, I'd use Wordpress and a custom post type.

    If you want something completely custom, you are going to need to take the route vapr suggested.

    If someone helped you out, be sure to "Like" their post and/or help them in kind. The "Like" link is on the bottom right of each post, beside the "Share" link. Some of us are really insecure and need those likes so that we feel important and smart, so come on, help us out, huh?
