Availability checker search

Hi everyone!

 

I would like to know if there is a way of creating an "availability checker/search". It is an act/band/entertainment website so we would like a search box on the home page where people can choose the date which they would like an act and an option to choose the type of act e.g. a comedian or a rock band. And when they press search it will list the acts which are in the category they chose and available on the date they specified.

 

Some examples are:

 

http://www.alivenetwork.com/

 

http://www.dgmusic.co.uk/

 

I have no idea where to start and most of the site has already been designed so I can't move to a "CMS" as some people have suggested, so I need to find a way of doing it in dreamweaver.

 

Any advice will be much appreciated!!

    You could build it yourself, but you would need to be highly skilled in SQL and server side scripting. I think you'll be better off buying a premade script. Try searching the web for  "booking calendar scripts"

    You might be able to cobble something together with Spry Data Sets.
