View Full Version : Buy and Sell type site

Hey all,

Ive just started work on another little project of mine and im already at a road block.

Basically im looking for the best solution to create the folllowing setup...

Im in the process of creating a site which will give users the option of "buying" or "selling" a particular range of products for free. Something similar to the way the likes of buyandsell.ie , carsireland.ie etc... are setup (but its not cars..)

They will have to register in order to advertise their product and for those buying i want a search feature available.

Is there an "off the shelf" piece of software that could do the job for me ?, i realise i will need to use an SQL database and i would not be competent enough to create one on my own.

Any help would be greatly appreciated !!

Maybe something at Hotscripts (http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Classified_Ads/General/index.html)

Yeah ive spent the last few hours going through hot scripts and ive found the following script that im hoping would not be too hard to customise for the site im planning;

Try http://www.opensourcecms.com

I find that Hotscripts is bloated with too much stuff to sort through.
