I need someone who can help me determine a useful platform and then customize a website.
-decide what to model the site after and then which platform to start it on i.e. hostgator, goddaddy, (my domain service) inmotionhosting..etc.. ?
- 2 columns on the first page that have 5 to 10 lines from (with click here for more link) articles with one viewpoint on the left side and right side with articles of the other viewpoint.
-Categories for different topics listed across the top
- ratings like the tomato meter as to the good or bad of the article with comments allowed for each..
-page to collect and measure the articles suggested to be posted..
-create a location on the website to have people post and volunteer articles in each category to fetch all the articles from by rating that appear the top 10 articles for that category and have them posted on the proper page that's relevant..
-get people to subscribe and vote on their favorite articles.
-have relevance choice button that will bring up articles by relevance to time or rating
-have a support donate button
-have a volunteer affiliate program
-have subscribers receive of their choosing, weekly or biweekly or daily (choose days) to get emails on the latest.
Create a possible language choice option for foreign readers and invitation to people who would translate articles for nominal fee..
This project is two parts. One to get the site up and running, and two, to make changes and have an IT person to maintain it.
