    Hey all,

    As the title says, I need a script creating that works in an almost identical manner to an already exisiting site.

    Unfortunately, this is probably a one-off task, the site isn't one of the mainstream choices (i.e. youtube, facebook etc.)

    I can do the work on the appearance (I think), and obviously want to put our own design twists on it - basically the job I am advertising here is all about copying/emulating the functionality - I guess PHP/MySQL would be the way to go...?

    Here are some more details regarding functionality;

    The site is essentially a vehicle classifieds system, but in addition to offering vehicles, it should also be possible to request them (i.e. place 'wanted' ads).

    Also, the system needs to be able to send lots of email notifications - i.e. if a new member says he wants to be emailed every time a BMW is listed, he gets the email...

    It needs a login function, and ideally one that is controlled by us, rather than having a registration process (in other words, we manually set users up and advise them their login details).

    Obviously we need forms for adding listings (for sale and wanted), and search functionality.

    Being able to upload images to an ad would be good, but not essential.

    As I said, it is pretty complex, but there is a fully working site out there that can be used as an example.

    If you think you can help, please PM me for more details, serious enquiries only though please.

    Thanks in advance.

    this is a free php script for creating house sale websites I used about 5 years ago to make a website for a local car company that needed most of what you asked for.

    If you cant get a coder to do what you need, you could probably bash your way around this script without needing much know how.

    Thanks Terlan, appreciate the info but after taking a quick look, I don't think that script can accomodate 'wanted' ads, which is the main problem I am facing :(

    I can do this with drupal. Pricing would depend on a lot of things like how "cloned" you want it, theme design, etc... PM with some more details so I can get a better idea of what you want.
