Snot's Tarantula Database Project
I am trying to get a search able database for my tarantula site. I hope I'm posting this in the right place, if not please feel free to move or delete it and I'll know if I was wrong. Well this is my project I have been trying different pre made search engines and I haven't really come up with anything for the search function it just needs to allow users search by all or any of these options.
1. Genus = 100+ different tarantulas------------------I need help with this.
2. Species = 800+ different species-------------------I need help with this.
3. Habitat = Arboreal, Terrestrial, Fossorial--------Fixed
4. Humidity = Low 50% to 60%, Medium 60% to 70%, High 70% to 85%-----------Fixed
5. Speed = Slow, Medium, Fast-------------------------Fixed
6. Aggression = Caution, Extreme Caution, Dangerous--------------Fixed
7. Size = 1in to 3in - 2.54cm to 7.62cm, 4in to 6in - 10.16cm to 15.24cm, 7in to 8in - 17.78cm to 20.32cm, 9in plus - 22.86cm plus--------Fixed
8. Location = New World, Old World-------------------Fixed
There are 800+ different types of Tarantulas and 99% of the time, you decided you want a big one or a small one or a blue one or a extra harry one before you find out what Tarantulas actually have those traits. I would like my site to be a place where you can search for 9in plus and find all the large tarantulas. You could mix and match and search to find all the 9in plus Tarantulas that are Old World and so on.
I also need help with the system that will allow users to submit Tarantulas to my website using their scientific names along with any other information or pictures they have. I don't have a way to upload images and videos yet. There a way for me to approve and deny the submissions but I would also like a way to edit edit them instead of just denying the ones over mistakes before they are posted into the site or made search able.
One reason I need to edit is so that if someone submits images or videos of a tarantula I already have in the database I need to be able to accept the image and delete the rest.
I am having trouble on my results page. I would like to be able to click on the tarantulas name and be taking to a page that has all my collected images, videos, care sheets, and information.
Well you've got to start some where right? Grin Please forgive me for the following vague questions but being a beginner its really be a challenge to explain everything I need the search function to do.
I would really appreciate it if you guys would be so kind as to help me figure out what will allow me to accomplish this?
My most important question is how a beginner should go about starting a project like this I've been looking for freelance help if anyone is interested?
This is a link to my site.
search page & submit page
Thank you all so much for trying to help me out on this.
Your site's contact form processing is missing...
Thanks M8. I got that part under control.
Do you have any advice the rest of my questions? I really would appreciate it.
You are looking a creating a function to handle the search for you, makes it easier than to use if statements the whole time and saves cpu usage, holler if you need help writing the function
