Note: posting for a designer for the following project has been placed on elance. This scriptlance posting is for a programmer. Thank you.
Looking for a programmer (flexible with regards to experience) for an innovative site that integrates several functions of previously established sites including [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view] and (c)raigslist.com.
Description: The website to be programmed will be the internet home for a diverse group of individuals, mainly aged 18-30. Here they will be able to find international news stories, links to relevant articles, forums, a directory of specific businesses, member profiles, blogs, featured videos, international music and featured products from site store.
Though member log in will be included (similar how you log into [url removed, login to view], or ivillage or [url removed, login to view]) it will not be necessary to peruse site. Becomes required when posting in forum, purchasing from site store, contacting other members, posting a personals ad, etc.
The following pages need to be programmed:
*Homepage (similar to [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view], ivillage)
-news blocks for top stories and links to other stories of the day,
-featured products from site store
-blocks for featured articles
-links to blogs, ability to search members (and invite them to view site)
-site sponsor banner (advertisement display)
-polls (question of the day)
*Classifieds (similar to (C)[url removed, login to view])
-allow users to post/view items for sale
*Personals (similar to (C)[url removed, login to view])
-allow members to post/view/respond to personals
*Business Directory (similar to [url removed, login to view])
-allow businesses to input information to be included in a directory
-allow users to search database for specific businesses and service providers via location and/or type of service
-allow users to view upcoming events
-allow users to post upcoming events
-searchable via location (country, state/providence)
-for archived news stories that appeared on site main page
-for continuation of stories headlined on main page
-allows users to create and/or respond to discussion threads about topics like politics, culture, relationships, etc.
-not moderated but only users can post on it.
-last posts should be searchable via user name
-initially 12 products (but must be built to be easily changed and expanded)
-users can post announcements (upcoming wedding, deaths, births, big purchase, new business, etc)
-terms of agreement
-frequently asked questions
This is a brief overview of the site. It should be programmed for scalability. Flexible with depth of Alpha (but must include homepage, small site store, personals (or classifieds) and business directory)
Providers MUST have:
- Have a portfolio that can be viewed prior to any contractual agreement
- Be able to start development work no more than one month after final selection.
Thank you and we look forward to your bids!
