    PHP Feedback System

    Hi all, my bosses are interested in implementing a feedback system (preferably PHP) similar to say Amazon.com where people can write about certain items, critique them, and rank them accordingly. Are there any open source platforms avaiable that you know of and/or are familiar with? We have neither the time nor resources to build this from scratch, so any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Could a simple email link on the product page be good enough... i.e they simply email their feedback to you??

    The idea is a system that allows Purdue Professors to rate/review certain software applications they use so that other Professors might have a better idea of what to use. This means that the reviews should be publicly available (not simply in our email inboxes). Ideally the reviews would be sent to a script that checks for profanities and makes sure it's from who we think it's from, then gets uploaded so that other people can log in and read their responses, much like the customer reviews on Amazon.com work.

    Hmm an automated system... does it have to be PHP? Only because it is opensource and not many commercial products for your task using it... Maybe ASPX or perl/cgi etc might reveal some current products... or your next best bet would be to just write a specification doc and get third-party to write it and sell it as a package to you.

    But, we'll keep looking in the meantime

    i believe he is asking for a commenting system. any PHP blogging software has one. you may dissect their code and figure it out. i suggest you give WordPress a try.

    That's a good point adeydas... blogs can be used for a wide-variety of purposes.
