I looked around and didn't see a fit for my particular need.

I want to create a form for users to upload information and links in several categories. For example, I want to have a list of all local events. A user comes to the site, uploads the information, and then it is displayed when other users look for events.

In addition to events, it could be a website, a store, or other community resource. For bonus points, I'd like users to be able to filter on dates, cities, etc. I would create a different search form for each category.

What has been your experience with this and Duda? Is this something that the Content library fits in?

Thanks in advance.

    You would need a custom Dynamic Widget. @Shane_Hodge and his team have one (for a directory). The only issue is there is really no way for them to upload directly to the database. You will still be needing to add the items manually yourself (or your client)

    Thank you. I don't understand the answer or maybe I wasn't clear. I want to provide a form for users to upload their information into a database. Let's say I want a list of all the bookstores in Seattle. The owners of the stores would use the form to add their information. When someone wants to search for bookstores they would go to a second page and do a search. It's expected to be a manual process.

    Right. And with duda it's not possible natively. You would need a custom duda widget to build a directory site.
