I co-run a financial signals website, and I'm in need of someone to setup a user system (simple login with protected pages), and a further develop the existing picks system.
I've installed AdminPro - an open-source users system - so all that needs to be modified on this end would be some php includes to protect the member pages.
I've been working on this system for awhile. Basically, we enter some information into a MySQL database that is then displayed to the user in a table. One problem that I had was the fact that the table is too large to fit on the page - so the applicant would need to find a way to better display the data (perhaps a way to query the data, or simply a different table format). Furthermore, we would like to include statistics generated from the numbers we enter, and display them on our homepage (ie. averages, highs, lows, etc. of different MySQL fields). Finally, we would like some quotes (in the MySQL table) to be pulled from Yahoo! Finance and update via a cron job every so often.
Feel free to use any open-source scripts you can find to accomplish this job - it doesn't need to be totally unique, as long as it is legal and works properly. I prefer to spend under $100 for this project, but may look higher if necessary. Payable via check, money order, or wire transfer.
Sounds like an interesting project. I have done lots of website scraping, including ebay, [login to view URL], [login to view URL] and more. Check your PM.
