I am faced with a challenge for my company's new website. We are using Drupal 7 and here is the situation: We have approximately 250 doctors in our group and I am tasked with creating a custom search page where users can search our doctors based on certain criteria (e.g. specialty, gender, location, etc.).
I have created a content type of "doctor" and entered all of the physician data that will be needed. My question is: how is the best way to go about setting up the search that I want to give my visitors? I would assume that I need to restrict a search based on content type, but how can I throw the additional search parameters in there? Are there some modules that give very granular options like I'm looking for, or am I looking at having to create and code a custom module??
I'm a little lost and any direction would be very helpful.
