What languages/skills do I need to learn to build an interactive directory for my website?
I am building a website that is a directory of merchants. It's pretty simple: name of merchant, website link, brief description, and a category.
Besides, HTML and CSS, what are concepts I need to learn in order to sort these merchants into an interactive directory? Something where the user could sort the merchants alphabetically or by category. I'd also like the user to be able to jump to the last page of search results (e.g., if I had 1000 merchants whose name start with K, and I'm listing 25 merchants per page, I'm thinking the user would have something like this as an option: < 1 2 3 ... LAST >).
I'm not asking for specific lines of codes or plug-ins. Much broader. Something like, "Learn SQL and these concepts from it." Is SQL the best way to build this sort of directory?
