Hey guys! Been quite busy lately with this and that. Currently as you know I’ve been working with Mobsventures on their Slenky branded social networking system. This has been going better than it was, partly because of my learning curve with Elgg has excellerated lately.
Anyhow I’ve been working on opportunity matching on the platform that I’m now just polishing up for a littel demo and presentation I have to make this Tuesday for the client. I’m currently wuite happy with whats been implemented but like I said there are some parts that need polishing before I’ll be happy to display it to anyone other than my superior. Currently I have implemented different types of users (Client, User and Admin) which obviously have different functionality. The Client can add opportunties which can be diactivated and activated (not shown and shown). This opportunties can then are shown in the “All Opportunities” section for the user. The user can then choose to add these opportunities to their favourites for easy retrieval.
The nifty thing I think is that I created a kinda “smart” search. This gets all opportunities and matches based on the following in the following order:
- Same borough and on a category found in a favourite.
- Same borough.
- Category found in a favourite.
Tomorrow I’m hoping add a category hierachy system for the admin to control the different pre defined categories. Previding this can be done I’ll be ready for the presentation on Tuesday. If not, Monday night will be a very long one.
