Well, I've about had it. I have been searching for long enough for a good classifieds script that suits my needs, not gonna happen.
So I've taken it upon myself to go even deeper into PHP (have some experience) and code my first big project.
It's going to be for hotontheblock.com , a classifieds site aimed directly at the street fashion community. Basically, like http://solerhythm.com/ , with a design similar to http://www.tutorialmagazine.com/tutorials/index/photoshop
I really like that Web 2.0 look, and want to incorporate it into my site
It is to be solely a classifieds site, nothing more. Of course, user registration, private messaging, and Paypal integration are necessities.
The thing is, how should I go about coding this? Drupal is out, as is Joomla.
So the next step is to find a suitable framework, but which one?
