    I have a client job where I’ll need to create a partner locator page similar to this: http://www.virtualworks.com/partner-locate

    About half way down the page, you’ll see a dropdown to select a region which will then show a page of partner logos (linked to their website), the partner name and their phone number. We will need to add more information but not much – just more html content.

    I’ve looked into the following plugins:

    Store Locator Plus LE – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/store-locator-le/

    Simple Map – http://simplemap-plugin.com/

    and WP Business Directory – http://codecanyon.net/item/wp-business-directory/2203258

    These are pretty good but perhaps too big or too much – we don’t need a map and I believe the client would just like to select a region.

    There’s got to be a way to take advantage of StudioPress’s Grid Loop, post categories and a dropdown for this – perhaps also custom taxonomies or custom post types (which I haven’t worked much with yet).

    Other requirements include that the client would like to easily update this using a CSV or something. They have an external database (CRM) dealing with their clients and they’d like to push that content to the WP site using a script that they would create.

    Do any of you have any suggestions?

    We would be willing to pay for services.

    Thanks, Chris

    I found a pretty good plugin to do this. Connections – Connections Pro website.
