I have a website that is up and running now (would reveal in PMB). It requires a news blog section to be included to it.
I have thought through the functionality of this section and require that it should be more like an article repository engine that would allow the addition of articles.
In fact the news blog section should be a lot more functional than a normal blog.
Here are the core requirements that make it different:
I am strongly basing it on www. quotesearch.co. uk - so study it carefully for starters
3 column layout
Ability to create pages at the same time getting the title of the pages to be persistent links on the template of the news blog
Ability to categorise all articles into 3 clear sections
Area for contextual ads for affiliate marketing
H1 - H6 controls in Admin
Google sitemaps module - one click Google site map generator
Search certain articles by:
drop down box (predefined from admin)
search field (keyword)
Integration with my website - so template is already available.
You will only need to design the blog template and then start coding
You will be required to recommend what platform best accomplishes these requirements WP, TP, Joomla, Drupal
