    Yeah, a forum is a good idea. I think a good "all rounder" project is a shopping cart system.

    True, and the shopping cart system would be good as a project because it's got a commercial application Thanks

    I wouldn't do this for an A2 project though because there are too many PHP shopping cart systems available! I would go for something more rare. I did a calendar system for my college.

    If by "has a commercial application" you mean you expect to be able to sell it, don't get your hopes up...

    No but since the Upper 6th project has to have a real application, then that's what I meant by 'commercial application'... something that would be designed to solve a company's problem, as it's easier to explain in the documentation
