Using the CMS like a mini database, is this possible?
Use Case here:
Let us say the client has a JOB SEARCH database [ 2 variables here - Category Specialty [ 8 types ] and Location [ 6 locations ] - the CMS could easily be utilized like a mini database here where a good UI allowing the end user to choose between those two variables get’s him to a results page
I’m looking for _____________ [ drop down of 8 specialties ] in the area of _________ [ drop down of location ] I call this new age madlibs
and then in the CMS, each Job listing would have tags [speciality and location ] and the search parameters would spit back a result page that matches those, is this sounding right?
- We could also have an ANY filed that would only show results based on 1 of those two variables, like show me all Jobs that fall under the location 01 [ of 8 ]
Any good examples of this or best practices and live sites where this kind of search functionality can be seen [ done in webflow of course ]
Lastly, could the results page be loaded upon the user choosing the 2nd variable [ location ], so as to not have a submit / search button they would have to click on? Guessing this is .JS embed code here!
Any help or guidance would be appreciated, thanks
