    Recommend database frontend

    Hi!

    We run a small radio station website and would like to add a feature whereby visitors could see a list of our advertisers. We have access to mySQL through our web host so that would probably be the best database to use. I'm not very adept at mySQL but I think I could create the database. So I'm wondering if someone would be kind enough to recommend a database management system that will do the following:

    1 Allow the creation and modification of records
    2 Searchable - preferably by category, keyword and first letter of company name
    3 Able to integrate the index, search form and results into our existing webpages.

    I was able to find one example of something similar to what we are after here: News-Talk 1110 WBT | Advertiser Index
    This one doesn't appear to be working and attempts to contact them and get info on it has been unsuccessful so far. It appears to be a Cold Fusion Application - but I'm guessing having peeked at the source code.

    I've done some searches but a lot of the descriptions go right over my head. I thought DaDaBik, for example, might work but I can't tell if it can be intergrated into existing pages.

    Does anyone know of any software that would fit this bill - or should we be looking to have something designed for us (altho budget is tight!).

    Thank you for any suggestions!

    I don't think anyone here uses a database management system. I looked at DaDaBik site and it does look like it would work for you.
    but I can't tell if it can be intergrated into existing pages.
    It's PHP so yes it would.

    1 Allow the creation and modification of records -> Of course! They also allow modification of the DB itself.
    2 Searchable - preferably by category, keyword and first letter of company name -> Look here from their forms Single Search box to search all fields
    3 Able to integrate the index, search form and results into our existing webpages. -> On front page: Features include: forms generation/customization, datagrid generation/customization, datagrid HTML template customization,
    Evolution - The non-random survival of random variants.
