Matchmaking, dating website PHP and MySQL.

You will be required to create the front-end (HTML/CSS), middle (PHP) and back- end (MySQL) functionality of a matchmaking site.

This dating website is aim at pet owners or people who would like to meet another half who happens to own a pet. It is a website which holds profile of pets (dogs,cats, rabbits etc) and their owners.

Required to build the entire site with navigation bar, sign up page, user profile (Primary profile (pet), secondary profile (owner), login and logout page, search page (search fields), functions such as upload images, send off-line messages. Administration page, database schema, mysql script (which I can set up the table with on my server)

Required to build the entire site with navigation bar, sign up page, user profile (Primary profile (pet), secondary profile (owner), login and logout page, search page (search fields), functions such as upload images, send off-line messages. Administration page, database schema, mysql script (which I can set up the table with on my server)

It should have some static HTML page links to “about us”, “testimonials”, “why we

are here”, “support” etc., that will give a sense of appropriate business rules. You may

also include static pages of related articles or integration of a blog (e.g. wordpress).

Your homepage ([url removed, login to view]) will enable new users to sign up ([url removed, login to view]), or allow

existing users to log in ([url removed, login to view]). There will be a consistent design throughout the

site, complete with advertising regions. A template look and feel should be created to

ease development for the rest of the coursework. Advertising regions and suitable

logo / branding placements should be considered for professional web design.

Any CSS used should be globally applied for consistent reuse, and it should be

contained in its own CSS file (.css), not embedded in each document. Identify areas

as AP div tags with IDs, where you will need to embed PHP programs that manage and generate the content in those parts of the interface. It is important to consider

which pages will be generated dynamically as well as which regions within pages.

When users sign up for the first time, the website will take their details in a form

([url removed, login to view]), similar to what you have done for lab sheet 1. This data is to be sent by

PHP to an SQL database that you must create. They should have a unique username

that they create – so some validation is required to check that it doesn’t exist already.

Some of the user’s data will be made public for viewing, and some of the data will be

kept private only for the website to use for matchmaking searches (such as post code,

last date logged in). It will allow them to upload a photo of themselves.

When the user logs in ([url removed, login to view]) and out ([url removed, login to view]), the database must know this,

so an “online now” variable must be a part of the users’ profile. Before allowing the

user to submit the signup form, you should validate his input by using JavaScript (e.g.

make sure there is an ‘@’ in the email box). When logging on to the web page, the

user should not be allowed to log on again.

When a user logs in normally (via [url removed, login to view]) it is checked with the database, giving

them access to their landing page ([url removed, login to view]). Here they have links to edit their

profile, view their profile ([url removed, login to view]) as other users see it, and to see a list of

message texts sent by other usernames. It will also be good practice if when the user

logs in they get a personalised greeting (e.g. Welcome Jim Smith, you have 5 new messages).

A search link will then open a search page ([url removed, login to view]) to choose search options, and

perform a variety of search enquiries. It will return a dynamically generated gallery

of users thumbnails ([url removed, login to view]). You may use existing open source scripts to help

you with the gallery viewing, and it can be with Flash, Javascript or straight PHP but

you must cite any usage here. Clicking on any of the user profiles should show you

the user’s public data and an enlarged version of their photo. A textbox at the bottom

of the users profile should allow you to send some text (e.g. your contact information)

into the database for that user’s profile. That will become viewable in date order, on

the message history in landing.php.

A separate administrator page ([url removed, login to view]) should be created for the website

administrator, to check the database as a table. The administrator page should be

inaccessible for the regular user, therefore needs a unique username and password. It

should be able to manually add data into the database, edit and delete users data. It

will also enable them to view messages histories of users.

1. Producing thumbnails of the images uploaded (you may use existing scripts

for this).

2. Uploading multiple photos to be stored on a users’ profile.

3. Viewing a history of which usernames have viewed your profile.

4. Blocking certain user profiles from continuing to view your profile, OR

temporarily hiding your profile from all users.

You will develop the ability to send an auto-generated email when you have been left a message on the site.

The organisation of your programming efforts will be now be in line with the Model-

View-Controller (MVC) design pattern of software development (to be taught in the


In addition to this,

Two or more of the following tasks must be achieved for this stage:

1. Allowing the system to store user information in the database but delay for a

set time period before updating the website. This gives the administrator a

chance to review the incoming data before it becomes publicly available.

2. Chat with “online now” status users, in a chat window. Remember when they

log off of the system, they won’t be available in this chat window.

3. Postcode searching (you may use existing free scripts for this) e.g. search for

matches within 50, 100, 150 miles.

4. A payment page link ([url removed, login to view]) on the sign in page, to enable users to pay

by credit card with a date starting to date ending (e.g. monthly subscription, 3

monthly, yearly). Free and Paid memberships are distinguished by the CSS

colour scheme when viewing a user profile. A history of payments made

would be shown on users landing page when they log in ([url removed, login to view]).
