phpLD, a popular directory application, is giving away 3 Unbranded Licenses ($80/each) to WebResourcesDepot readers. Details on joining the giveaway can be found at the bottom of the post. But before that:
What is phpLD?
At some point, most of the web designers/developers need to create a directory for a project. Whether it is a directory of products, branches of a business, employees of a large firm, etc.
phpLD can be a solution for that (or, it can be used to create a totally standalone website). It is a PHP application for creating any type of directories, from small to large with unlimited categories and sub-categories.
The application is very flexible with custom fields support or ready-to-use widgets like site-translator, latest tweets picker, ad-rotator and more.
It is also a multilingual tool where users can contribute to the content by submitting links or articles and comment to them.
A feature-rich administrator panel helps managing the whole site (categories, users, content, etc.).
There is a built-in PayPal-based payment system for the ability to offer "featured links".
phpLD has various templates and a new template can be created from scratch pretty quickly as it uses the Smarty templating engine.
How to join the giveaway?
It is enough to comment to this post and winners will be selected randomly with the query below on 29th of September 2010 (2 weeks later):
SELECT * FROM wp_comments WHERE comment_post_id=1843 AND comment_approved=1 AND comment_type='' GROUP BY comment_author_email ORDER BY RAND() LIMIT 3
Good luck to all.
