    I have very basic understanding of php via wordpress mostly.

    I wouldn’t really know where to begin building a directory that can be modified in the wordpress backend.

    Does anyone have links to tutorials or demos that would push me in the right direction?



    What exactly are you trying to do? And if you’re trying to create another login system, I would actually recommend using the one that WordPress already has implemented in its core.


    We need to add exhibitor info in the back end. Such as..
    Company name ________
    Company phone ________
    Company category ________
    Company ID ________

    And that creates a big list showing only company name.

    The company will be able to login with the company ID and make changes to the above fields.

    Need to sort and search the list by category.

    Fairly basic I hope.


    Since you’re asking, no, it’s not going to be something as simple as 20 lines of code. It’s going to take time to learn PHP, what to do, what not to do, security, etc. But because my knowledge of WordPress is horrible, I’m not sure I can help you with integrating it.


    The custom metabox work on github would allow you to add the custom fields with a nice interface (if your planning on using WordPress posts for the directory listings).
