I am developing a business networking community that will combine the following: 1) articles/forum features of communities like [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view] 2) networking features of websites like [url removed, login to view] I will provide the design for the front-end, and I am open to using scripts like [url removed, login to view] or phpbb to lessen the cost. But the networking features are probably going to require custom php programming, and I would want the article system and the forum to be tied into that custom "networking" solution(for instance, usernames would be congruent in the forum and the networking system). Please visit [url removed, login to view] and open a free account so that you can see what I will require for the "networking" part of this project. I will pay for the article script, whether we select [url removed, login to view] or another article solution... Here are the main requirements for the project: Networking Objectives: Each member will have a profile. b. Under the profile section of the page would be the member's guestbook. c. Also listed on the page somewhere would be the "member since" date, a list of "circles" joined, and buttons for browsing people to add this person to their "rolodex" contact list or PM this person d. There would need to be a control area where they could edit their profile, read PM's, create their own "circle" etc... also view their "rolodex" of contacts...read articles in their "file cabinet" 4) Circles - This is the other guestbook [url removed, login to view] can create and then invite others to join, like the "Bankers Who Like Gumby" circle... This will be a seperate page that has the guestbook feature (only circle members can post) a blurb on what the circle is about, a list of members, and a button to join this "circle"... Maybe whoever creates the "circle" would be a moderator, no editing capabilities or anything, more like a host. Just list him as the host, and he can welcome new members to the circle or something.. Again, like [url removed, login to view]
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done and an overview flowchart to assist future programmers with upgrading features later. 2) Installation on my server and integration with my html pages. 3) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased. 4) Commitment to fix any bugs in the functionality that are discovered within 2 months time. (Just don't leave me stranded with some crazy glitch please! :) I am designing this website as a resource for our local business community, and therefore my budget is just coming out of my own pocket. This will be a great portfolio site though, and I would be willing to work out some advertising to go along with whatever the payment ends up being. I am also in search of a programmer that I can work with in the future with my web design business, so keep that in mind when bidding on this project. Thanks in advance!
I would like for the programming to be based in php and MySQL, and I will need administrative control for the community built in...
