I’m wanting to have a content database on my genesis site, and am hoping someone can point me in the right direction for how to accomplish this.
The content will be profiles of various marketing projects, each it's own entry in the database. Each entry will have about 15 fields, and I'll use a Google Form to have people add database entries. The Google Form will be mostly text boxes, but also some checkboxes, multiple choice, and URLs.
I’d like the projects in the database to be searchable by several of the parameters, like the company behind the project, the category of project (which I'll create the options), etc.
If anyone has any input on good plugins for this, or other ways to approach it, i'd be grateful, as I'm not quite sure where to start.
To start, I wouldn't use Google Forms. I would use something built for WordPress like Formidable Forms or Gravity Forms. These tools offer all of the capabilities creating views and searching the database using the familiar WordPress table structure. As another alternative, I would use a CPT with ACF.
