[resolved] Something like gasbuddy? (14 posts)

    I was wondering how I could accomplish something like gasbuddy. Or even works with buddypress since that is all cool now. Something along the lines of something social where everyone gets their own page. Kind of like in twitter where everyone has their own page where they can say whatever about themselves, and still find the cheapest hair gel within a mile.

    I just want to emulate gasbuddy but do it about something entirely different, like hair gel. Since I really haven't had that much of a problem with WordPress I figured I'd ask here.

    There is not a my site. I do gave other sites but they are irrelevant to this gasbuddy thing. I'm sure people are well aware of it. (wordpress.org needs to stop tripping)

    What do you mean?

    Well when I posted a comment I saw that it wanted to know the link to my WordPress blog. I have other ones just not ones associated with this question. I assume that it would've most likely been taken as a joke?

    The question is valid for most posts - as it's usually much easier and/or necessary to see the site in question in order to help. In this case not - but obviously, the form has no way to know what the content of your post is. It's not a problem to leave it blank.

    Well I understood which is why the joke about the having of it. If I did have a domain for such to have as in I wouldn't quite need the joke.

    Do you know anything about what I'm trying to accomplish though? Here's a link for those who want a link.

    If you're not already, use the Tag Filter option when searching for themes at WordPerss.org. You can select tags that match the GasBuddy website like, "two-columns" and/or "light".

    I don't want to match the look and feel of the site. I guess I didn't explain myself.

    I want to have the same functionality of gasbuddy. The ability to have a site where people put in the price of something that changes rapidly all over the United states or world. Being able to find the lowest price of some decent hair gel within a mile. I have no idea what a themes looks have to do with any of the functionality.

    Well I guess I've found the solution. I'm off to find someone to hand money to so they can code their little faces off. Since what I want doesn't exist except for one greedy place on the internet.

    Yes, I think you will need a custom-coded plugin or site for something like that. "Greedy place" -- there are plenty of those around :) - not here though (no one gets paid anything here) LOL! Good luck.

    If you want to post a job listing, here's one place to do so:

    My god. Did I come at you and slam you up against a hypothetical wall and say it was all your fault? NO so why must you imply that I did. I don't get it man, and I know that there is a jobs, themes, plugin request board.

    Are the moderators to WP newfriends? My problem has obviously been solved. Everyone who is in Singapore or China isn't awake yet.

    Sorry, I don't know what I said that upset you - apologies for whatever it was. I did not intend to imply anything - it's not always clear what someone asking a question here knows. We do the best we can -- sorry if it was not exactly what you needed.

    Dude, it doesn't have to do with a theme.
