I have a web site that is similar to twitter. It's a microblog that has group messaging functions so that users can send messages to a group of people at one time.
I have a huge list of schools that I need to import from csv files into a table on the server so that users can send messages to everyone in their school.
The way I need to categorize the school listing is as follows:
My current group setting only allows the following:
So as you see I need two more levels of categories for the schools.
The other option for this is to make a smart search tool that will allow the user to just type in the name of the school that they are looking for and have all of the matching schools show up for them to choose from.
Either way, I will still need the table where the schools are added to be modified to hold the school details, address, city, state, postal code, etc. This information should be shown to the user.
This project can be done with my API or through some modification of the of the script, but I prefer using the API.
This should make this project easier:
My web site is similar to twitter, but any user can send messages to a whole group of people instead of just one person. Only the admin can create, edit and delete groups. They are categorized like this.
Top level two
Top level three
(this is an example)
But I have a big list of schools that I need to use (over 10,000). When Groups page is loaded it will show every single school and every single group that I create. That will take over 5 minutes to load and obviously that is not good at all.
I need a way to sort through all of the schools easily. I can create any other page that will only show schools and they need to be sorted like this:
And I need a search bar that will allow the user to search for any school just by typing the name. All matching options should show up instantly. An example of this is at the following link:
(type the word "albany" and you will see that the results show up before the user is finished typing)
THIS WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE.
Edit DB tables to add extra fields that are needed for the schools
ONLY show groups in the existing group page
ONLY show schools on the new page created for schools
Allow schools to be categorized as described above
Create search bar on schools page to allow user to search for schools.
