Links SQL Potential
Hi there. I am new here and seeking some answers to my questions. I am about to start a new project for a company and I believe Links SQL may give me the foundation that I am looking for. I would need to modify the program of course, but for the following, in your view, would Links SQL be the a good option?

The service will be a type of Classifieds Advertising system.

Users Table
Users would have the ability to join and add listings as they wish.
When enetering the Modification Area, they would use a username and password to pull up all of their records - not just one at a time as I believe the program is made to do now
The site Administrator could select between two different User types - thus, if one user adds a listing, they would be forwarded to a different thank you page then the second type of user.
The user would be able to edit their personal (address) information as well as each individual listing.

Listings Table
Through searched or category links, visitors could view summarized listings. The summaries could be sorted by columns.
Option to view 2nd thumbnail page (with thumbs) rather than the standard links summary page.

We would also want only sub-categories to display (or be built) if that sub category contains a listing, otherwise, it should be skipped. We do not wish to have a bunch of empty catrgories (the main categories would always display).

The best example of what we are looking for on the web would be the SQL version at http://Scriptmate.com however, we feel that Links SQL would allow us greater control. http://Carsforsale.com is probably the type of result that we are looking for however we are on a much smaller project.

I know Links 2.0 from experience has a lot of potential. I have no idea about Links SQL though but I think it should be comparable. Are the above features possible? SQL will be new to me but this project will allow me to learn as I go, no big time deadline.

Thank you.
