Simon Hildred wanted to start selling minerals online, so he asked me to make him an online shop.
It includes all the features of a standard shop (categories, shopping cart, search, admin section where administrator can add/edit/delete products/images/categories and manage orders.
It also includes a news section so he can keep his customers updated, and a dynamic link section so that he can add links to other sites.
For the first time I used pure-CSS drop-down menus on the navigation, and also inplemented a rather cool feature called "live search" on the search bar. When you start typing, a HTTP request is sent using javascript to tye search page, and the results are displayed there and then, as you type, rather than having to enter a word, submit and wait for the page to reload.
Of course, it is all accomplished using XHTML and CSS, and powered with PHP and MySQL Databases.
