Before I move on to my needs, I'd like to describe the site in general to you.
Picture a networking site for both individuals and companies in the business world. I want it to be like myspace or facebook. You will be able to add "friends" to your friends list, and "companies" to your companies list. As a free service you can also upload your resume, and create a digital portfolio all for free. I would like users to be able to customize the color schemes of their pages, as well as move their "blocks" / segments around the page using AJAX. By this I mean if the user wants his/her picture to the right of their personal details, they can drag and drop it. (Thus automatically saving what they just did so that their page is viewable that way to others)
the website itself will be an entirely free service. However, in the event the user needs "more" of what they already have I would like to implement a payment gateway to upgrade user services.
REQUIRED LANGUAGES: (No exceptions! no PHP, ASP, etc)
- Do not use any frameworks such as fusebox, machii,coldbox, or dreamweaver templates please
- Website and code MUST be secure and structured around security
- CSS2 MUST BE cross-browser compliant in at least IE6,IE7, FFOX. (Netscape/Opera preferred as well)
- After our transaction is complete ALL source code will belong to me and my company. Do not encrypt the source code.
- Can provide developer direct access to my site including: MySQL(Phpmyadmin), and FTP. ( I can provide anything else needed as well)
There is still more to the project but this gives you a vague idea of whatI am trying to do
