How can I get a shopping cart with ajax-based product previews?

If I wanted an ecommerce site powered by something like osCommerce and I wanted some additional functionality built that gave product previews via ajax, similar to what NetFlix does, where should I look for a programmer to set it all up and about how much should I expect to pay?

Tour Para Bien Estar

I had the great fortune of recently running into this fine fellow, who is currently in the middle of riding his bike from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska clear to Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, all in the name of raising money for a youth home for at risk and abused teens in Alaska. Apparently, and unbeknownst to me, he has been wintering here in my home town of Missoula, MT for the past few months, but I only recently met him. We got to talking about his website, and he mentioned that he had been on the hunt for an easy way for him to mark his progress on a map for visitors and friends to follow. I, being the fairly technically minded guy that I am, would like to help with that. [more inside]

Ebook sites that don't suck?

I am working with a client who is convinced this e-book web site is awesome. I am trying to convince him that a long page of text (not to mention the annoying popup) is boring, unprofessional, and no potential customer would bother reading it all. In his defense, he points to the Alexa rankings, which are indeed impressive. Does anyone have any examples, preferably with a better Alexa ranking than that site, of a web site selling an ebook that has a few short convincing paragraphs that sum up why the book is worthy of purchase and has a professional design that doesn't look so awful?

Externally linked navigation menu?

I'm making a website in CSS, and I want it to have a left-side navigation menu. It doesn't need to be fancy, just some text links will do. What I want is to have the navigation menu externally linked, so that if I need to change it, I can change it in only one place and have it affect the whole site, like CSS does for the style. My server apparently isn't set up to use server side includes, and I prefer not to use frames. [more inside]

Need ideas: designing UI for Q & A with audio/video content

Posting this for a friend whose MeFi account is not active yet. I have a UI issue I'm trying to solve. How to create a casual but efficient interface to a series of audio and video clips of an author, talking about themselves and their book. It's a "conversation with the author" feature for a book site, and I'd like to avoid making the feature just look like a "clip browser". It should have a conversational feel to it. [more inside]

In PHP, is there a way for a page to determine where it is in a site's directory structure?

In PHP, is there a way for a page to determine where it is in a site's directory structure? I'm new to PHP, and I want to create an include that will contain my global navigation. The problem I'm having is that I can't figure out how to do that with relative URLs since the include could be written to a page in any of several directory levels. I'm sure this is a solved problem, there's probably even a built in function, but danged if I can find it. So 1, How do I have PHP build my relative URLs based on where they come up in a site's directory path? And 2, where do I go in the future to find this kind of stuff out for myself?

"Cloaked" domain workaround

I run a website for my school's robotics team. It is hosted on my server at home on a Verizon FiOS connection, which while being incredibly fast, blocks incoming port 80 requests. As a result, I use the ZoneEdit feature that allows me to nest the page in a frame. The issue is linking to external sites results in those sites loading in said frame. Is there an elegant solution to this problem? I'd rather not have links open new windows...
