This is my 1st post to this forum. I am a uni student studying Yii. I have been tasked to create a small yii application in the form of an estate agent. So far I have created a small site displaying properties.
Unfortunately I am unable to provide a link to this site, as it is on a secure University site with no public access.
I have been successful in creating the required applications so far, which includes the MySQL database with 5 Tables, User, Vendors, Property, Images and UserAlertsCriterea.
All have been tested using Postman Client in Chrome.
I now need to create:
User Alerts which will be generated each time a new property is added to the system by admin users.
The Alert criteria will be generated by a user after they have registered or at any future point.
The criteria will be based on PostCode, Number of Bedrooms, Min Price and Max Price (price range).
Basically this app needs to send an email to the registered user everytime a new property is added.
My question is:
Should I use an email extension to create this or is there a simply piece of code which will provide this function.
I must add that I am using Yii version 1.1 as the University cannot cope with Yii ver 2.
