This question is more of a design question and am not sure what forum this would go in but here goes.

Is there a way or practice to search, navigate large result sets efficient in PHP?  My problem is that when I conduct a search I then want to search within those results using filters.  As of now, I keep researching the database when I enable filters.

Should I simply

1)re-search the database with my new filter criteria or,
2)is there a way to search the original result set
3)maybe something cool that I dont even know about.

Thanks.  Love the site!

personally i would re-query the database, but that's just me.  especially if you are talking about filtering through a large set of search results.  it's certainly possible to use some php functions and conditions to do it with php though.

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)
