I have a site that uses PHPProBid and I would like to add a new feature for customers.
I would like to have data scraped from Wikipedia and give customers the option of adding the information to their listings. (Similar to eBay's Add Additional Information)
When a customer is creating a listing they should be prompted to enter the name of their item.
A customer enters a DVD title: As Good as it Gets
then selects the DVD category.
They should be asked if they would like to include additional information. If they click yes, then the information would be extracted from wikipedia and added to their listing.
The scraper should remove all links contained in the wikipedia page. Also, some information will be left off from the original wikipedia page. Scraper should also add a movie or game rating logo (if a game is rated mature - them it would display the Mature rating logo)
Scraper will also need to automatically add the product image from wikipedia into the image upload URL area.
When the information is displayed to potential buyers is should include 1 link back to wikipedia by displaying this text at the bottom: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Also, I would like to add a new drop-down when customers are creating a new listing.
The drop-down would be Item Condition. Customers would be able to select the items' condition from the list. This should be configurable within the PHPProBid admin area.
