Challenges

The major challenge that we faced while developing this site was the creation of Recipe Designer module where no of inputs of different forms are to be handled at the same time. Every input has dependencies on several attributes.
Creating any no. of variants for a recipe and variants of variants was a typical functionality to be implemented. Also it was need t checked every time that no recipe can be unpublished whose quotation already exists.
The implementation of quotation logic for different shipping and destination points was a good achievement. Formation of no. combinations of shipping and destination points and their different freight rates applicable for different types of transportation facility was appreciable.

Solution

1.Managing different inputs for Recipe Designer:  By maintaining dropdowns for various inputs and associating them to different attributes at the same time, from site admin module.
2.Applying different screens to different user’s profile: By using different Skin files.
3.Displaying error messages through message management in the web: By using the php inbuilt functionality in message management to display the error messages.
