The requirement is a simple upgrade of the php email alert script for open realty 1.1.5b.
Basically the existing email alert script needs to be expanded so it emails out details of the newest real estate listings posted on the site to the subscribed users based on the search criteria that each user has chosen on a daily, every other day, weekly or monthly basis.
At present the script only mails out each new listing separately without any time lapse. The script should first collect all the new listings that match the chosen criteria of each user in a database table or temp file, then email them out in the time frame that the user selected (daily, weekly...) by running the script (php file) through cron job.
Please have a look at [url removed, login to view] and signup as a user and see how the existing system works. Thank you ...
