Apologies in advance for what might be a stupid question
We have a customer who would like visitors to their site to be able to place adverts for different categories of item for sale - eg they would like to be able to sell advertising for both cars and horses, as a stupid example.
Using this example, the different categories of item would need to have different search criteria for people using the site to find the items... eg both categories would need photo(s), but people selling cars would need to indicate the engine size whereas people selling horses would presumably need to indicate how tall the horse was (this was a stupid example, I wish I'd thought of something a bit clearer!)
Can anyone point me in the direction of a plugin that would allow both creation of items and search of custom categories for those items? It looks like WP E-Commerce might fill the gap, but I'm new to WordPress and didn't want to head off too far in the wrong direction if I'm wrong. If the worst comes to the worst I'll write the whole thing in Perl but I think it's probably time to drag myself kicking and screaming out of the 1980s :0) Thanks in advance for any help, any pointers would be much appreciated
