Motoccaz is a website where people can place ads for motorbikes and motorbike parts/accessories sells. The site will include a administration backend, moderation options, and a member area (edit informations and private messages send/receive). Members can leave feedbacks on other members. The webdesign is already done and coded in strict css / xhtml. It would be giver to the selected developer for this project.
II) Coding relative instructions :
The code must be clean and fast. The website will run with betwin 200 and 1000 users at the same time, of course on a dedicated server. It must be well commented and easy to modify to add features. It must be a good start for later improvements. It must use template files so it will be easy to edit every website page look. The website will have to be in french but I'll do the traduction, it isn't a problem (hard coded or not). The html code must be strict xhtml code.
III) Main Website features :
A) Spider engine optimisations :
URL must be rewritted. /[url removed, login to view] or /[url removed, login to view]
A google sitemap file must be generated by a cron, with a list of all objects in sale and all categories.
B) Integrated Search engine :
Search by keywords / category (more than one can be selected) / Price (betwin "" and "") / Location from the seller
The search must be as fast and effective as possible.

Email validation required when registering. Auto-login when clicking on the validation link. Login with a cookie.
When creating/editing an add, the member can upload some pictures. Pictures are resized and watermarked (GD2 used). Thumbnails are generated as well and cached.
Members can leave feedbacks about other members. These feedback display a ebay like reputation on the seller's ads. When a member wants to buy an object, he send a private message trough the website to the seller and communicate this way.
Members selling an object can pay via paypal for a boost option who allows the ad to be displayed on the top of the category list and on the frontpage until the objects views reach a defined number.
Members can edit their email / password.
D) About the ads :
The seller can't put email adress or phone number in the description (identified by a regex). He can edit his ads directly from his object's page with ajax without reloading any page (like invision power board messages edit). He can delete his ads if he wants to. A views counter is displayed. Similar objects are displayed at the bottom of the page.

They can click on a "Resolved" link which clear the queue.
