I'm figuring out a solution for designing a Wordpress site that will display filtered image selections from a library of about 1,000 cataloged building windows, doors and other materials. You can think of it much like a database with info about homes, where you can select certain criteria to focus in on just a few that match. I can find dozens of plugins to house the images, that’s not the problem. I can’t seem to find a plug in that will allow me to build a search form, that appears on the front end of a site so a user can easily select from a number of criteria and get just those that match. It’s important to recognize that the tags and main categories might expand over time, so an admin panel must allow for this definition. The search then has to be mapped to an image gallery, such as NextGen or other suitable wordpress gallery.
Since it is for a Wordpress site, a semi-customized open source solution will also be considered.
An example using radio buttons might be:
Search on *-any criteria *-all criteria
OTHER MAIN CATEGORY
How much money (in USA$$) would it cost and how much time would it take to create this?
