Search Functionality for Directory Website

Recommended Posts

I am working on a quote for an online directory. Here is the link to their current site (created in Wordpress). https://denmarkchamber.com.au/
The focus for their new site will be on the directory itself. I was thinking of setting it up as a blog and categorising each advertiser into industry.
I have spoken to two Squarespace designers (for advice) but got mixed feedback so I am reaching out here in the hope I can get more clarification before I send the quote through.
My main concern is the search functionality.
Q1 Does Squarespace's search bar have the functionality to support something like this? There are 300 advertisers.
Q2 If no, are there any plugins you know of/have used that we could use instead?
Thanks in advance, I look forward to your feedback 🙂

If you're planning to offer a service, I recommend testing your proposal on a trial site first.

1. The built-in search feature is unreliable (acknowledged by Squarespace).

2. I recommend Universal Filter.
