Project Description

The jist of this project is as follows. PHP/MYSQL driven system. Admin logs into Control Panel, uses form based pages to create categories and items in a database. Each item will have variables associated with it. These variables should be able to be created by the Admin. (Items -> Field 1=Color, Field 2=Size, Field 3=Model, etc). Admin has ability to create user accounts. User account can log into system, select from a list of items which the Admin created. When selecting an item, user account can select yes/no for variables associated with an item, and enter text variables which are applied to the item for that user. These items are then associated with the User Account. User accounts should have entry areas for various background info on the user, such as name, address, website, etc. Parts of this info should be able to be pulled into a public page. On the front end, a set of PHP scripts should pull this info into various pages, so that a visitor to the website can browse by User Account and see all items the User Account has selected, with the variables they have applied to said item, browse by pre-defined calls to items, browse by pre-defined calls to variables, or a combo of the above. There will be default pages such as "view category" "most clicked items" and "search". All categories, items, and variables associated with items in the database should be able to be searched for using a form. Form options are auto generated based on what categories and variables the Admin has created in the system. Templating and graphics are not needed. User Friendly URLS not needed.

This idea for this project is a small shopping index, allowing retailers to log in, select items they carry, enter a price and URL to the item page on their store, and let visitors to this website search pre-defined categories or for specific items, and see everyone who has it and their prices.


Sidebar Area (to be included via PHP call on all public pages):

Listing of Categories

--Number of Items in Categories Next to Name

Quick Search Bar

--Keywords and Pre-Defined Price Ranges

--Link to Advanced Search Page

Main Page:

New Listings (last 10,20, etc)

Category Listing (last 10,20, etc)

--(I choose categories shown on page by stating which cat # in the PHP call)

Random User Highlight (name, variables from account)

View Category Page:

Listing of Items in Category

Each Clickable to Full Item Page

--Picture, Name, # of Users with Item, Price Range (lowest, highest)

View Item Page:

Details box

--Picture (clickable to larger version)



Retailer Listings

--3 columns per row (Retailer Name, Retailer Price, Retailer Link)

--Sorted Lowest Price First

Average Price (takes all prices found, averages, spits result)

View Retailer Page:

Retailer Logo

Retailer Results (Total # of items in directory)

Link to Retailer Results (can be pre-determined search result pages aka [url removed, login to view])

Search Page:

Search by Keywor d


--Only in Category

--Min Price

--Max Price

--Only by Retailer

Pre Defined Searches

--Price Ranges

--Create Search Strings that can be edited and pre-defined by us.

--Example: [url removed, login to view]

Variable Pages:

No need to create them, but design the system so we can at will.


Display all items in database with the "Is Pre Order?" box checked to yes.

Display all items in database with the "Is Item an Exclusive Item?" box checked to yes.

Create one page with the call in place which we can edit to choose proper variable, paste to new file, and reupload.


Admin CP

Admin User Logs in.

Only one Admin User.

Config file with username/password (or secure method which name/pass can be changed).

Admin Functions:

Ability to create user accounts.

Ability to create categories.

Ability to create items.

Ability to create site wide variables applied to items.

Ability to create site wide variables applie d to users.

Ability to choose if variable is a

--text box, length of text box

--number box, amount of decimal places

--Radio Checkbox, with entry fields for options

--Yes/No Box

Idea is to log in, create variables. Then, go to "create item" page, and have those variables show up. I enter values for everything, it saves it as a record in DB. This is then available to user in User CP described below.

Ability to edit items.

Ability to edit users.

User CP

User Logs In.

User sees list of categories.

User enters category, sees list of items.

User clicks on item, sees item entry page.

User enters values in variable fields for that item, saves.

All items user selects can be called into a public page (above examples) with the specific details he entered for it visable.

User can see list of all items they have selected.

User can edit varibale values for items they have selected.

User can delete items they have selected (from their list, not completely from DB).

Note: If "creation of database fields/variables" in admincp by the Admin, to be dynamically offered on item entry pages, and then dynamically pulled into public pages, is difficult or messy to accomplish, I would be ok with just creating the default item entry fields, with a significant amount of extra fields that will be blank and not called, so I can modify them later for later use.

## Platform
