i am looking this up i think its a mysql function wthin mysql database seach function.
$query = "select * form members_info where name like '%$name% and age='31' and hair='blond' ";
know what i can see from my example is that all users with age 31 and hair blond should show i think not sure theo.
and therefore classed as a match example a matching dating mod to show who matches within the database
what is the beauty of www.linkedin.com: u can make friends (much like the well knowen www.hi5.com). by adding friends, u create a network. now: if u want to find a plumber for example, this is easy. the trick isn't to find a plumber, but to see if he (the plumber) is friend with one of ur own friends.
u are friend with Max, Carl and John.
John is friend with u, Max and Nick.
Nick is friend with John, Mihail and Sebastian.
Sebastian is friend with Maria, Nick and The Plumber
and that's the beauty of it: to be able to see "the path" between u and the man u want to hire if the path exists. in our case: u, john, nick, sebastian.
this is the part i'm not so sure how to set it done
and it couldn't be done with a search function like "$query = "select * form members_info where name like '%$name% and age='31' and hair='blond' ";"
