PHP Coding Ideas
Posted 22 August 2006 - 10:51 PM
This dude developed like this kick-ass database thingy. It was kinda like phpmyadmin or something, but it was all ajax. It was f'ing amazing! So he wants to see my skills, so I need to develop something. Only question is, what? You have hundreds of CMS's, BBS's, Forums, etc.
So please post suggestions of stuff you would like to see developed using PHP, MySQL. The idea MUST NOT require any AJAX, but be able to add AJAX if I so choose (I have yet to learn AJAX). So please list your suggestions. I don't much want to build a content management system, you have nuke for that. And there are to many forums out there to name. What is something you would use? I once made a web monitoring system, just for fun. It was pretty cool, but there are hundreds of them that were better than mine could ever be (hybodus).
Look forward to hearing your suggestions.
DISCLAIMER/COPYRIGHT: All ideas posted means that I or anyone who sees them will be able to develop them. If you want to keep your idea a secret so that only you will develop it, don't post it!

My bad, should have exxpanded on that. If people kinda wouldn't mind explaining a bit of what their idea is so stupid people like me can catch on to your line of thought and we don't run with the idea and trash it. I mean I know we should take it where we can, but I would like to understand your thought patterns on the idea...mainly, because I am dumb when it comes to stuff like that :-D

That's how some handle it. Others pay me electronically, but that's a whole other story.
My problem right now is that it's only semi-dynamic. If I wanted to create a project code/price on the fly, I can't as the system stands.
I also don't currently have a way to provide status and tracking on projects to my clients. It'd be nice to have a system where I could enter comments and give the user a "tracking" link to their project to view the progress of my work.
I hope that makes a little more sense.
As another project, it might be nice to create a web-based CVS type project. That would be kinda cool.

So basically what you want is an admin interface where you go in and do something like:
Project Code: 001
Project Name: Web Template
Price Per Unit: $100
And then a place where you define a customer:
Customer Name: John Doe (Why is it that everyone uses John Doe as a dummy name? lol. I bet it pisses the real one off)
Project Code: 001
Customer Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Customer Mailing Address:
555 West Lane
Chesternut, Utopia 77488
Units Finished: 0
Units Unpaid: 0
And then you would need a place to say, well I have finished 1 unit so you go in and change the 0 to 1 and it automatically creates an invoice and adds in the price based on how many units are complete. Granted there will be a place where you can say, okay I completed a unit so click that button and it will update the row and change that 0 units finished to 1 (same for units unpaid) and so forth. And then finally when you complete so many units, that way in case you complete 2 units before billing, you can push a button that says Send Invoice and it will send an invoice with the units unpaid as the price owed. When they send you the money you can push a button that says Payed Up or something and it will set units unpaid to 0 but your Units Finished will always just go up until you finish. Or am I WAY off?

I have a plan where I get unlimited text messages but I'd prefer to use them for messangers. If you could come up with a script that could do any of the following, i'd probably go out of my way to buy it:
1. Read incoming text messages for individual users. Each user has a "number" like an Id in the database. When a text message comes in, that user gets it online. That way one can be online and chat with one through text message.
2. If you could do the same but allow it to send the messages through AIM, YAHOO, MSN, ICQ, GMAIL IM, etc. (i don't see that being REALLY possible though lol).
Just some ideas. May be too much. it is for me lol.

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community
