I am looking to create a small, free "item exchange" website for a local community area - similar in idea to Freecycle. I do not want to go down the Yahoo! Groups idea or similar as I would prefer to keep everything on a spare LAMP server I have.
I thought about using forum software (eg SMF) to create either item or postcode categories but thought this may not offer enough search ability or flexibility. I thought about using a script like PHP Auction but that seemed more geared to money exchange and bidding.....
So, anyone any ideas about a good way forward.
Thanks so much
