87521 phpMyDirectory customizations

*** Intro *** I am currently building a worldwide travel website, using my own limited skills in PHP, MySQL and CSS to tweak purchased, professional website scripts. Due to the nature of the project, the features required and the injection of some external funding, I am outsourcing some of the work to be done on a regular basis. This project is only one aspect/task of the larger project, but if the work is done quickly and efficiently further projects will be given directly to the programmer without the need for bidding. There will be PLENTY of work in future for this site. *** Project Description *** I want to customize a current, working installation of phpMyDirectory ([url removed, login to view]). Currently the script only allows users to browse by categories (ie [url removed, login to view]). I want to be able to browse by both location and/or category (ie [url removed, login to view]). Originally the different levels of locations were stored in seperate tables (eg loc_one, loc_two etc) which limits the browsability of the directory. The steps we have taken so far are: 1. Created custom locations table, mirroring the structure of the categories table 2. Created custom listing/locations table, mirroring the structure of the listing/categories table 3. Populated custom locations table The steps remaining in the project are: 1. Clone [url removed, login to view] page for location based browsing 2. Clone [url removed, login to view] page for location AND category based browsing 3. Edit listings table, to allow for new locations structure 4. Edit [url removed, login to view] page to ensure locations are added correctly to the right tables 5. Edit .htaccess with updated mod_rewrite rules to ensure clean URLs *** Job Requirements *** Good to expert level technical knowledge is required in PHP and MySQL. You should be familiar with administering Linux servers, and some familiarity with .htaccess files, permissions and mod_rewrite will also be required. A degree of flexibility and initiative is definitely required- all tasks and requests for changes will be coming from our project plan, but if your experience or expertise suggests things should be done differently we would like you to share that with us and we will discuss these issues as we go. It is a huge plus if you have previous experience with any of the following scripts: - phpMyDirectory, - phpFoX - aMember, - MediaWiki, - FreeTag, - Vogoo. Needless to say, positive feedback on Scriptlance is very helpful. A strong interest in travel would also be an added bonus. *** Please Note *** I do NOT want a replica of commercial mod � I have already purchased one and realized that it was not what I wanted. All code should be original and fully commented for any possible future changes.
