Project Description

Please refer to my current website www.r _ a _ s _ t _ a _ y _ . com (take out the '_')

and familiarize yourself with the functionality.

Change 1:

On the homepage, there is a search bar. My last developer had problems with getting it to work properly, and I am unhappy with its functionality. It should be able to search by city or country, in the same way a google maps search works. For example, if I type in 'England', it will show me a map of england, and all listings in england. If I type in 'london', it should show me all listings in London, and a google maps page of London. I should not have to type in 'London, United Kingdom'.

Please refer to [url removed, login to view] and note how their search function works - I want it to be like that. It is possible to type in any city or country, and it will take me to it. Where there are multiple towns and cities with the same name, it just takes me to the main city. Eg 'hobart' - takes me to hobart, australia - not hobart, which is also a small town somewhere else. It takes me to the capital city.

Change 2:

Please create an account, and familiarise yourself with how user information is updated on the listing pages.

Note this current accommodation listing:

[url removed, login to view],%20united%20states&id=20

and now refer to the changes I noted in red in the attached document.

I need the displayed name and email field removed.

Also, I need you to install the circled messaging function.

This is how it will work:

- User viewing the page can send the host a message by entering their email address and message in the labeled boxes.

- When the user clicks 'send', a dialogue box will appear will appear to confirm it has been sent. The box will say: "Your message has been sent!"

- The host will receive the following email from the sender ''


Hi [name of host receiving message],

[name of user who sent the message] has a question for you regarding your accommodation listing:

"[message that was sent]"

To reply, email [name of the user who sent the message] at: "[the user's email address that was provided].

Please don't reply to this email, as no one will read it. Also, note that we don't mind if users choose to privately arrange bookings through email, but we think it's a better idea if you get them to click on the 'book it!' button on your listing page.

This way, there's a proper record of your booking, and you'll be able to leave feedback for each other after the stay.

All the best,

The RayStay team.


- Note that if the user wants to send a message, they will have to be signed into their account. If they are not, they will be redirected to the register/login page if they click 'send'.

I look forward to working with you. All the files and database for this site is hosted on my hosting account, I will simply give you my username and password for you to work on it.
