We are going to create a sub-site on [url removed, login to view] All new files will be located [url removed, login to view] We are going to be using expedia api. Will be similar to a certain site we will let know at a later date.
Home page i.e. [url removed, login to view] will have 30 - 40 categories of destinations I.e san diego, each category its own folder...travel/san-diego/
We want 30 - 40 categories of destinations I.e san diego, los angeles etc
When click on category destination, like San-Diego, it has all hotel listings for that category / city. We will be able to set how many hotel listing are shown. The hotels that are shown will have a screen shot of main pic of hotel. We would like infinite scroll if easy to program, otherwise no. When click shows images description and as much text as possible.
We would like to put pages in a database. We will help come up with a database design so we are all on same page with expandability etc. When click on category /City, it will take you to hotels for that category / city. When click on a hotel, php will extract which hotel from url, go to database to see if detail for category is in database, if so it displays it from database, if not, php goes to expedia api to pull it down, put in database and display it.
All urls must be clean. We would like pages to end with *.html.
All images must say located on our server when hover over them...even though being pulled from expedia. I.E. when hover over it will have clean url from our site.
Will give example of site when hired.
So to sum it up there will be three levels to click into:
Level 1. Category...hotels listing page.... we make this page..[url removed, login to view] Diego, Los Angeles, Phoenix. There will be 30-40 categories.
Level 2. Hotel listings page...formatted similar as [url removed, login to view] we make this page we set how many hotels to display . Is dynamic in that we display x number of hotels at our choosing. there are no query strings in any urls. All are clean urls.
Level 3. Hotel detail page is dynamic...must pull which detail to pull from url in level 2. information is stored in database, if not, pull from expedia api.
We will need a one time price please. We are look for someone with experience in html, php, mysql, expedia api and confident you can do it quickly and inexpensively :)
