HallExchange

Recommended Posts

HallExchange is a classifieds service exclusively for college students. Right now, it is only open to students from my school, but will expand to other college's in the future. What do you think?

Awesome, I totally want something like this for my campus, or any future campus. I had sort of the same idea, except more visual-location based. Built a prototype with plain HTML, CSS, JS, MySQL. What did you use in combination with Processwire to make this?

Nice. Of course, this is asking too much, but do you have a test-account (login) someone could use to see the features only available to registered users?

I noticed on http://www.hallexchange.com/exchange/ that not all listings have links. Bug or feature? :)

I'd optimize the "price" display, i.e. make it a pure text input field, or an integer, and handle the frontend display accordingly.

Various forms of price displays can be seen in the frontend: 25, $25, $$25, 359_plus_utilities_per_month, $_10 etc.

Also (just being curious) - what is data-rocketsrc for? The sparse infos I found after googling didn't reveal much...

-> <script data-rocketsrc="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.1/jquery.min.js" type="text/rocketscript"></script>

I used bootstrap as a template and then tweaked it for a design that I made in photoshop.  Currently all of the backend is handled by Processwire, but depending on how it scales, that could change in the future.

I may supply a test account, but really the only features are being able to view the ads and contact ad posters.  The links are actually a bug!  Thanks for catching that!  I have updated it so the prices display better now.  Originally, I didn't know how people wanted to display a price, and I tried to force numbers only.  That didn't exactly workout so it's much more flexible now.  The data-rocketsrc is actually code provided by Google so I can used their jquery.  It just uses their CDN so I can save bandwidth.
