If you want to create all of the code yourself to learn, that is fine. However, there a number of helpful parts out there that may you on your way.
-[url="https://github.com/benedmunds/CodeIgniter-Ion-Auth"]Ion Auth[/url] is nice user auth library for handling your logins. Very easy to use, and actively maintained.
-Use a [url="https://github.com/jamierumbelow/codeigniter-base-model"]Jamie Rumbelow's Base Model[/url] to take care of CRUD.

Just plan out your database, then start with each piece of the site. Create the login system. (easy if you use Ion Auth as the views are already provided). Then design the home page, and the search box. Once you have that, the work on the functionality to build the landing page from the search click.

CI is still PHP, it just gives alot of default functions/methods to create sites faster. It's structure can also help keep your files organized.
