This is an educational website with two sections
1) For students
2) For teachers
All users will be 'students', i need a flag in the db for which ones are teachers.
1) front page sign up/sign in
2) mysql database (this will require communication between us to get it right)
3) frontend pages to upload/edit content (I will create content, just need a good database)
4) content must be 'rateable'
5) user profiles
I have started myself and will provide some sketches and database plan which will probably need revising.
I am a good teacher, but not a good web designer, and I am seeking a professional, but an efficient and communicative professional. I am very serious, having registered my domain two years ago and slowly developing my ideas. I have tried dreamweaver and now ms expression but I just dont have the ability to do this efficiently.
I am guessing that the basic login/profile database section will be very very easy for a good designer and therefore this contract/project is mainly for the content database and its links to the user profile. That is where the work will be so I need a good php/mysql person, from any country in the world. If you can only do simple databases then please don't apply.
The database will need to be well organised and that will be our challenge. Mainly because there is likely to be complexity and I want it to allow for my ideas to work. I will not waste your time... I have a friend who will help me with database design and then you can comment on if it is a good one or if you can do better.
There will be no upfront payment. This is my first time on here and I don't want it to be my last. I want someone who can make my site the best educational site in the world - with your good database and my good content.
Thanks very much, I really hope that you, via this freelancer site, can make my dream reality. There is no urgency and I will not harass or rush you, ever. I work with children daily and have learned a lot of patience!
