This project involves designing a very interactive students classified/trading post website. A user will logon, and design a "Poster" of what they are selling, with tags at the bottom of the poster. These pull off tags (like you see on a billboard) will be "Virtual Tags" whereby you can drag a tag into your "Virtual pocket" for viewing later on. A poster will have 10 tags, and when all 10 tags are removed from that poster, the poster will dissapear and be removed. IF the person selling the item would like more tags, it will cost him say for example an extra $5 per 5 tags. Each poster will have certain design options (i.e. Font, Colour layout etc).
When you click on a category (Example, Rent, Textbooks, Car for sale etc) it will take you to the next page which will have 1 Large billboard displaying all the posters (Like a real pinup billboard). You will be able to zoom in to view each poster details. There may be multiple pages as 1 board may not be enough for all the posters.
It is essential to have a very good search engine built in to find the specific poster you need. Each poster will have a unique identification code.
Therefore, this project will require good graphic designing as we want to market our website to students mostly and backpackers. IT must be very interactive, original and unique to any other classified ad website. The main aspect is the website HAS TO BE INTERACTIVE. A user must be able to drag there virtual tag into their virtual pocket. From this, they will be able to contact the seller from the tag. IF the person wishes to buy the item displayed, they may just simply "Add it to a shopping cart" and checkout.
To make it cheaper, I can supply trading marketplace classified ad script. The website can then be built ontop of that.
