Ahoy there everybody!
I have a client with a specific request and I need some extra help. The problem is as follows:
First, the site is [url removed, login to view]
Please visit it and get semi-aquainted with it before bidding.
The request of the client is a upgrade to the search function on the site. As you can see, the function that is there now is just terrible. She requested very specific attributes she would like to incorperate into the search, since a LARGE number of people are going to be "Searching" instead of "Browsing" the site.
Now, the site is basically a list of businesses in this county. When someone searches for a buiness, then, of course, it would show up. BUT HOW it shows up is the major problem I am having.
Instead of this business (there will only be ONE result per search if they search for the business) showing up in a list of results, she would like the search to go straight to the page the business is listed on after the user clicks "search". Moreover, it should jump to the listing on the page as well. (Similiar to how bookmarks work.)
Now, if there is more than one result, then naturally, it will show up with a list of results like a normal search engine.
The closest I have been able to find is the search script located here [url removed, login to view] It has the "jump to result" on the page, but not the first option I suggested.
If you need more information, feel free to contact me.
If you have examples of this type of search, please post them
My client is very strict about not spending more than $100 on this project so higher bids will be ignored.
Thanks a bunch for your time!
