[DEV] Amazon Store for phpBB

Post by PeteMan » Sat Sep 09, 2006 9:19 pm

MOD Title: Amazon Store for phpBB

MOD Description: Inspired by Amazon's recently released (hosted) aStore I thought I would write a version of it for phpBB. My version will, of course, use the template system, DBAL, ACP (to select .co.uk or .com, enter your Affiliate Id, choose featured products/categories), etc.

MOD Version: 0.0.0

MOD Download: n/a
Last Stable version: n/a

Demo Board: http://www.phpca.net/phpBB2/amazon.php
Demo Username: n/a
Demo Password: n/a

Please note that the demo has loads of bugs but hopefully it should give you a feel for the end product.

What you see is a very rough stage 1. Stage 2 of the mod will include the item detail page and stage 3 of the mod will include the cart.

Enjoy!

I'd like to get something out by the end of the month, just in time for Crimbo.

Can we add our stuff like sale stuff we make?
Meaning that can we add to the list stuff we would like to also sale?

No sorry this will not be possible as I will be restricting my mod to the functionality of the Amazon "aStore".

You're very kind. It's comments like yours that keeps me going!

I don't actually classify myself as a PHP programmer but I have done a lot of other coding in the past (CICS, Cobol, PL1, Basic, Easytrieve+, MText, DB2, VSAM, ISIS Papyrus, Exstream Dialogue, etc). Sadly my bosses don't let me do any these days (we've got Indians to do the coding)!

So you're doing these things as a means to appease your appetite to code? If so then kudos to your boss, man because you take phpBB and rip it up, in a good way. Don't you have a blog I can keep track of your projects with?
