Hay all,

So basically we have launched a website in NZ similar to fiverr just for kiwis. The main idea is for kiwis to post what they would do for five bucks, and if they like someone else's work they can spend five bucks on it.

We are hopeful that NZ will take on the idea pretty quickly, its free to post anything and ive just finished up coding in the new user system allowing people to register/login with facebook without having to write anything in.

We would love to know what you think, if you think we will achieve big success or not.. Most of all we want your opinion on the site.

Currently it is in alpha stage, although the site should be fully functional.

Visit us a @ fivebucks.co.nz or our page @ http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=212175755482475

Cheers

Alex

Awesome mate,

I posted up that i would do a logo design for $5, i designed the site look so i thought that would be an awesome idea for people to get me to design stuff for them, usually i would charge like 10x that amount at least. But hay, five bucks is five bucks!

- 2 many html's at the start
- no close head
- you have end html is not the end a close div is
- html is said to be html strict (when you for the 2 html> but its far from being html strict
- when you join up with facebook in the lightbox the webpage loads up in the lightbox frame
- My Paypal link does work in the profile and if you enter it in my paypal in my profile it doesn't seem to do anything
- Picture Error when you don't upload a picture.
- Add an order and then I click on the order http://www.fivebucks.co.nz//users//service/35/Do-anything... I get a 404
- Service I added doesn't show up
- Profile .. Balance doesn't work
- Profile .. Inbox doesn't work
- Clicking on (by Alex Taylor) for example comes up with user doesn't exist
- Add popularity doesn't work
- Sugget a service.. you put one in and then.. it says there are no suggestions

Wow,

Hay cheers for the list bro, definitely going to take at least 2 days to fix, at least i haven't launched any advertising yet ;)

 there is something weird playing with my lightbox code, modal should allow pageload to close the lightbox and refresh //

cheers for the help

:)

Hay all,

Ok so i have fixed everything you have said, still please bare with me as the original script was horrible, the new ver im fixing up will definitely have a few errors in places.

I have basically gutted the original script down to its bones and am building my own one back ontop.

Cheers

Alex.

PS it took about 2 hours to fix all the errors ;) I cleared my weekend schedule to do it, so im pretty keen to help out someone else on one of their own projects if needed.

Here, thing we got drilled into our heads "All your code must be valid", use this: http://validator.w3.org/, and you can't really go too wrong. A lot of googling the errors if you aren't sure though :P

Good luck.

Looks better.. more to fix :-)

-when you click on a by username on the left home page it comes up with

Services listed by Trent-Lyster
No such user

- you still have a div after the end html
- when you put your paypal address in it doesn't seem to save when you press the "go" button

- uploaded images are stretched if they are not the right ratio you expect..

- when you send a message it forces you to upload an image..

- Attachments in Myprofile just links to home page if you have no images (in a reply)

- no way to delete a message you have been sent...

- clicking on my name under the suggestions goes to user not exist..

- some nasty HTML injection in the TAGS field which is easy to exploit..

- timeline can be anything including letters and negative numbers

- keywords can just be ","

- long keywords stuff up the formatting

- maybe do something when people go to non-existant pages (404) rather than give an apache error page

- Howdy? is that a question??

- Checking for valid input http://www.fivebucks.co.nz/user/

- http://www.fivebucks.co.nz/users/Trent-Lyster/service/29/ERROR

- http://validator.w3.org is your friend.

Hay,

Well i guess i do need the weekend lol ;)

So far ive fixed the attachments, you now dont need to attach anything to message, it comes up with no attachments if there are none..

Fixed paypal, originally the script displayed the existing paypal in the field beside 'go' now i have displayed it underneath and separate, tested and updates as you press 'go'.

timeline fix is easy, ill do that tomorrow morn.. Spent about an hour on the userpage.. It seems the code there is horrible so i will rewrite that entirely.. Should take about 2 hours.

Ill probably add a couple lightbox scripts while im at it, allow users to post youtube videos, larger pictures that popup and such.

I know it may seem a bit newbish with my code lol, i am pretty new to php, ive been learning it for about 2 weeks now to get to this stage, previously i just did design but thought coding would be a good addition to my portfolio.

Also, for the proper launch of the site we want to try to team up with some other New Zealand sites, i can offer my coding or designing (much better with photoshop lol) to said sites in exchange for links or posts or whatever.. If your interested PM me ;)

cheers

Alex

Nice site! Some aspects of the design still look a bit bland. I attached a few design change suggestions.

1. The logo is too close to the top. center it in the space
2. The linkbar should look a bit more spaced out and organised.

Not sure if you've intentionally put this in, but when I go to register it says my email can't be used, has that red cross next to it.

hay all,

Thanks for the comments, For the logo im probably going to increase it about 40% on size and bring it down slightly.. For the navbar i need to css up some awesome buttons instead of href..

The email cross thing is a bug, you should still be able to register without that being a tick, i plan to integrate the registration and login pages into the actual site this weekend anyway ;)

Cheers for the feedback

Alex
