    I have an idea for a website that I think will be very useful.

    I am wanting to make a website like trip advisor, where I can list a load of hotels (for example) and people can sign up to my website and post a review of the hotel.

    They also give it a rating out of 5 and this adds to the overall rating for the hotel.

    I've looked at doing it on wordpress using a 'product review' widget but it was a bit tacky.

    Does anyone know if there is a way of doing this for free? (Like if you want to make a forum, you can download SMF, if you want to make a shop, you can download magento)

    Thanks

    There's already a multitude of hotel review websites. If you're going to invest time this I'd suggest you come up with a more original idea, or at least an original way of implementing it.

    It's not for hotels. I was using it as an example as it's easy to understand.

    It's been done

    www.hotels.com

    Don't look for it being already done for you, everyone and their granny has a wordpress these days. Learn some basic html + css then go from there.
