Extended Searchoptions

I've just started to work with eZPublish for a upcoming project and there are a few questions around some solutions included in eZ.

At first I want to build a travel site where the user can define some values (travel by car or by bus/ rating for hotel...). This form should access a database of content objects (the different travels/hotels) and should show some defined fields of the entry(s) that fit to the search. Is this easy to build with eZ Publish itself or with eZFind?

Hi Moritz and welcome to the eZ Community,

Your description sounds like a sort of advanced search, and yes, you can achieve this type of things with eZ Find, very easily. While your description is short for a whole project, you may want to give us some more insight so that we can elaborate!

Cheers and talk soon,

Hey Nicolas,

thanks for your fast reply. I just wanted to outline the main technical aspects of the project to keep the answer simple.

I'm planning to have a database where i add some project data (entries of tours). Therefore I need some additional tables that include the linked data such as the hotels/ the type of tour/ the countrys...

Thats kind of the backend of the project. In the frontend i would like to have this advanced search. In this search there are some fields to choose like the country/type of tour. I think this type of search does only include some fields and options of the database and should not be something like a free search. The german site "" is one example of such kind of search form. I hope this additional information can help you to rate the practicability in combination with eZ.

Hi Moritz,

If i understand correctly it is all about integrating third-party data. Given the need for a proper search on the latter, one working recipe can be the following :

Hope this helps a bit!
