    Wish List feature on my site
    Hi,

    Does anyone know anything about creating wish lists similar to what Amazon have. Have searched the web and abw and can't seem to find tutorials on how to do this. Know this can be done with oscommerce but don't want to go down that road.

    Anyone done this before?

    Thanks

    Adrian

    I don't think you're going to find a tutorial on this. It just takes some basic programming knowledge and an existing shopping platform. If you've built a shopping engine already this is just a small addition. I'm not sure what you're asking exactly, but in order to get it done you're going to need a user registration system and product and wishlist databases. What sort of system do you have in place already?

    Hi Scott,

    Have a basic HTML affiliate site at the moment. Learning PHP and mysql so will be updating site and was hoping there would be some php wishlist/giftlist script available either to purchase or download.

    Looking at uploading datafeeds to mysql database (very new to this). The user will be able to create a wishlist and send an email from the site to family/friends letting them know they have a wishlist on this site, which hopefully they will visit, click on the affiliate link to purchase gift........

    Hope I'm making sense here. Probably will be able to figure it out better once I learn PHP.

    Thanks

    Adrian

    It all sounds good, but take it one step at a time. I think you need to focus on getting products into your database and work on an update scheme before you can even begin to work on the wishlist.
