is a xml format food menu system. They released a WordPress plugin here: http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=23894.0
I'd like to propose a WordPress plugin that takes uses the openmenu data to provide a food takeout ordering system.
You could use the openmenu plugin (linked above) as a starting point, or you could take
the data from http://openmenu.com
, there is an xml feed
There's plenty of into on the format here:http://openmenu.com/specification.php
If you look at http://www.opendining.net/m/
(you may need a smartphone for this link to work properly - see screenshot
as an alternative) this is the kind of thing I'm thinking of, except for a specific Openmenu menu.
You browse the food menu, adding items. Then you go to a check out where you give your name and phone number and are told how much you will need to pay. The order is then sent to the restaurant and the customer gets a reference. The rest of the process is offline (customer goes to restaurant, pays and collects their order).
At this point I do not want online payment to be necessary, but of course this would probably add to the usefulness of the software.
Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, please let me know!
