We are looking to get the upgrades done to our existing social networking website. The website is complete and working - has steady flow of traffic and stable, active membership base. It has a secure membership area already in place - in other words - all the hard job has been done already and is working perfectly. We are looking at getting a few upgrades done to the site - some extra features to be implemented and operate as a part of the website. The budget is $400 for 4 (four) new features. If you are chosen as the winner and deliver satisfactory, professional results, we will retain you to maintain the website on a part time basis with a $200 a month payment.
These are the feature we are looking to add to our existing website:
Job Postings should look similar to this - [url removed, login to view] and have similar (but not all) features. Once again - membership gateway and all this is already done and you will be provided full access to source files (the site is in pnp), so you will just copy and include files that are already in place to your new scripts. You will need to implement a PayPal payment gateway for employers to allow them to purchase a spot to advertise their position and members of the site will get an option to upload their resume, which will be saved on the server, so each time they find an advertised job they like, they can apply for it easily with the resume that's on file (the linked website works exactly like that, only it is far more complex - we don't need all the features).
Accommodation Rentals should look similar to this - [url removed, login to view] and have similar (but not all) features. Once again, there is a complete back end for everything, you will just need to program these new features and implement into already existing membership area. You will need to implement a Paypal payment gateway for renters to advertise their place for rent and this is pretty much it. The site will only provide information about available places for rent and everyone - both members and visitors to the website will be able to see it and contact the renter.
This is for people who have an accommodation with a spare room and are looking for a roommate to share the place with them - very common in Canada (where we are located). We plan to offer this service to members and non members. PayPal payment gateway should be implemented to collect the fee from non members, and regular members. Website has another form of membership already implemented - it's called Elite membership and it gives its members number of advantages and extra features. Account with Elite member status should have this feature available for free (members can become elite by posting in forums). There are many websites for roommates that can be used as a sample of what it should look like. Most of them are far too complex for what we need, so we'll just take the fundamentals and leave the whole lot that is around it behind. One good example of a roommate site is - [url removed, login to view]
This part will be similar to member's area of an adult website. It will be a gallery of images and will be available to Elite Members only.
We expect to partner with a professional PHP and MySQL programmer who has excessive experience with high traffic membership based website and are able to deliver breathtaking results within deadlines. Fast payment via PayPal will be released to the right person. Time wasters, please stay away from this.
