The project is to use existing code to create a PHP script that:
*runs on a cron job to check whether a merchant has a product in stock, by grabbing the page and checking if a "stockword" is present
* adds this data to a MYSQL database
You will also need to create a simple frontend where current stock is shown, and a seperate page where stock history is shown.
Additionally, an admin backend should allow the admin to change which URLs to check, as well as merchant details.
A similar functioning site (see the bottom half of the page) can be seen here:

Before bidding, please read the attached PDF.
This project should take an experienced coder about 2 hours, plus one for testing - so please aim to bid for about 2-3 hours of your time.
You will be given full FTP & MYSQL access.
As detailed on the final page, additional addons such as email lists and a realtime version will be required once the project is complete, so a successful candidate will get this work also.
