I need this done right away, ready to start now. Site goes live friday so we havent got much time.
Hi I have a PHP job here. This will be to modify a custom made Joomla component.
Currently this component consists of 2 or 3 front end files and 2 or 3 backend files.
What this component does is allow the generation on the front end of banners for like a porn company. In the backend they can insert a link etc and on the front end a user enters there affiliate ID and it auto generates the display of the banners as well as the html code they can copy and paste in their web page. It tosses around like 2 or 3 variables but most of the actual linking code is hand written by the end user, there are like two commands in this text entry box of things similar to this @BODY@
However it currently has limitations as that it can only do images because it is built to output <img sr=” etc … We need to make it so that it can also output flash.
We also need to do another mod to this component and that is currently it has sub categories of small ads, medium ads and large ads. We need the ability to edit these sub cat names as well as create new ones.
I’m not a PHP programmer that can do this but I do work with php everyday and from what I can see anyway a lot of the functions and stuff are there and can be copied/modified to produce the flash out put capabilities.
It looks like on the new functions it will only need to be constructed so that it does not output <img src= This is the only thing preventing it from working correctly so seems fairly simple as a lot of the code is there that does these functions yet new functions need to be made from this that doesn’t output <img src which prevents the flash banner from displaying. There is going to need to be a selector to select type in the category of either a image or flash so that this component can be used for both.
So overall we are giving this component a new ability to work with flash, and the ability to create and modify sub categories. It currently has subcategories but looks as if the original programmer hard coded it without giving the ability in the backend to define them by the user. Over all I don’t think it is to hard I would assume that it would take 6 -10 hours to finish. My original programmer looked at it and gave me a fairly reasonable price yet I haven’t seen him in 2 days and I need to get this done ASAP like yesterday.
This is PHP and mysql a Joomla component, not sure if any new tables in the database are going to need to be created or not. If you know what you are doing this shouldn’t be to hard.
