For example, if the user wanted to find a bar where they can book a seated area for a number of friends, i would like that person to be able to narrow it down by either drop down menus or check boxes of their preferred venue based on what they have chosen as their preference.
I would also like for the option of showing within the results, thumbnails.
I want this feature to be very simple and clean looking and not interested in any of those off the shelve templates. I would like for this set up to be administered very easily without any programming knowledge.
Another example can be found here [url removed, login to view]
You can see on the left a basic paramaters. The result sections looks good and clean.
