I'm currently looking for a developer or a web agency to build an [url removed, login to view] similar website.
Here are some essential features it will have to include :
General features :
- People can view, post new deals, voucher codes and vote hot or cold by logging on the site.
- Forum different deal categories (Mobiles, Gaming, Computing...) and different forums (Deals, Vouchers...)
- Site should have all administration functionalities of a regular forum
Deals features :
- Non-logged in users can view/read deals.
- Only logged in users can post comment/create new thread/vote on deals.
- When positive votes reach a certain level, deals should be shown on the front page as hot deals.
- Each deal (separate thread) should show it's votes (heath) as a number (degree) and also in graphics (temperature bar).
- Site should display hottest deals in past week/month/year in a widget on the front page.
- Site should have different pages for recent hot deals (front page) and for newly posted deals.
- When logged in user posts a new deal site should suggest similar deals to avoid duplications
Admin features :
- Admin should be able to monitor, ban posts and users.
- Admin should be able to set the number of deals in each page.
- Site should have quick search search and advanced search functions.
Please indicate which technology you'll use to build the forum, but keep in mind that code should be readable, maintainable and extensible. And finally I would add that this list is not non-exhaustive.
All developers or web agency who bid on this projet must have a portfolio to show me.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY MY PROJECT : I DON'T WANT A GROUPON CLONE OR A SITE LIKE THAT.
GO CHECK HOTUKDEALS.COM BEFORE BIDDING ON MY PROJECT.
I forgot to mention some specifications :
Users and visitors would be able to log in through their Facebook and Twitter accounts.
I would prefer the use of a forum software (like Vbulletin for instance, and for which I would provide the license) to build the website.
Thanks for all your bids ! ;)
