I need to have a script coded to perform an action of my website. I am considering posting the project on the Freelancer website. I don't have much experience with writing this kind of script and I have no idea how much to pay for this work or if this is a difficult script to write. Can someone here advise me on this?
Here is what I am considering posting on Freelancer:
Store random numbers in a MySql table, then retrieve a number from that table and insert it into a target table each time a new record is created. To insure the uniqueness of the number, I want to delete the retrieved number from the source table as it is used (or another way of insuring uniqueness),
When users register on my Joomla website a new record is created in table _users. I have added a column in _users table named rand_num. I want a number from another table in the same database inserted into the rand_number column when a new record is created (i.e. when someone registers at my website)
Does this look like a difficult or time consuming scrip? Can you give me an idea of how much to pay for this work?
Thank you for any help you can give.
