The project is for a website which allows parents to create websites with pictures and movies of their children.
The sites created should be static, not generated on the fly using php. A directory should be created on the server for each new parent sign-up and this should be populated in accordance with choices made during the signup process. Sites are created by the use of templates, images and the css file in the user directory.
The parent's sign-up process includes catpcha authentication, e-mail confirmation to create an account and must also store this information in a central database in addition to using it to create the initial site.
A user admin interface will allow the parent to input their child's information to complete the pages created on joining. This interface also allows the design of the site to be modified by selecting new images, templates and new .css file attributes, which will over write those in the directory to change the look of the individual site.
Image and movie administration is a large part of the user admin interface. The user must be able to upload images and videos via the web but also from a dedicated windows application working on the client machine (this will resize the videos and pictures appropriately then ftp to the user directory) - if you can not make this portion, please make it clear as other arrangements can be made for this. Images, videos and other information can be entered into competitions based on preset criteria.
Visitors to the child's site can also upload images and movies via the child's site or the uploader. These can then be either approved or denied by the parent for addition to the child's site through the user admin interface and those approved must be added automatically.
The user admin interface must also allow parents to maintain a limited mailing list which they can contact with news and which is automatically notified of new updates to the site.
The html templates for the sites created are available - please contact me to see them before bidding if you need to. Graphics will be outsourced and are not part of the project.
A site admin section will allow the administration of users (view account types, suspend accounts etc etc). A mailing administration to allow e-mails to be sent to users and those on users lists. A layout admin to add/update/remove templates, images and css files - this must automatically change options in the signup process and user admin as required. Administration for the compeititons. Administration for the main site and
banner advertising administration.
The main site includes picture links to the new sites added, the competition pages and forums for parents.
