My website [login to view URL] is a social network and also allows bands to signup, cannabis dispensaries, regular users, and cannabis oriented physicians. I would like to change the current format to use the Directory Plus script that I purchased.
This means instead of the basic directory structure that I've created, with poor design, I would like to make it look more like the Directory Plus script search page and results page.
You can pretty much use the script, as far as the design and functionality. Each of the sections (bands, dispensaries, doctors, and events) search pages will pretty much be identical except for the url for each page. This can likely be done simply using my htaccess file. The search pages rather than have a text input field will have a dropdown and the user can select which category to search within, whether events near then, dispensaries near them, etc. We will try to determine the users location using geo code. Currently I grab the users latitude and longitude coordinates upon signing up. This will allow us to suggest the location the user may search for, before they type anything. In other words we will prepopulate the location with what we think the user will search for based on their location. Obviously they can enter a different location if they want. We will return results within 100 miles and match based on distance to the latitude longitude of the event, band, doctor, user, or dispensary, as we gather those for each one created so we will already know those after an event is created, doctor signs up, etc. I have the database query for distance proximity searching already. Feel free to have a look at the site to see how it currently functions when a user wants to see dispensaries or events near them.
You do not need to worry about the final destination page as far as design. Just worry about getting them to the right url upon clicking the results link and I'll take care of what is displayed.
Also each search results page will have unique filters. Someone searching for users may want to filter by age or gender, while someone searching for dispensary may want to filter ones who offer a veterans discount, etc. I am a self taught coder with limited skills and time so the php code I've written is procedural style and what I call spaghetti code.
I dont think this project should involve lots of time but please bid and I'll make a decision who I believe will do the best job. Thanks
