Joomla template already installed needs editing to specification for a review website.
Main issue is we've been let down over peoples ability to create the upload, read and access documents on the site.
The site is database driven, a user can register, upload content, create profiles. Features to include but not limited to online editing of content, the ability to write a story which links through to your content and the reorganisation of various media.
Other items for the site include, chat rooms and bulletin boards, blog and review capabilities; have to be able to support video, images and documents. Media that is uploaded should be auto resized to a maximum file size - this may mean auto reducing resolution.
Navigation pane at the bottom of the page which floats on top of everything, small and editable with a limited amount of info. It should be available as a free plugin.
Individual users can write articles which can be reviewed about a company, experience etc. An automatic notification is sent to the company via email with any reply to be featured in the same manner as the article.
This is essentially a review site similar to tripadvisor.com but with additional features.
Logins with any social media accounts can be used to create accounts, again available by a plugin but it needs a decent one as image is critical. Verification of user is also necessary before their article can be published even if account is created via a social media account.
There will also be a media centre which will upload news articles - these can be video/ text anything.
We will also be looking for app development for this - quotes are invited to include this as well as just for the website.
Editing the template for a mobile site will be necessary too.
The data management for it's upload, display and access appear to be too much for a lot of companies. This spells out what is necessary but we have been let down by over 10 companies on different projects of this kind and been forced to complete them ourselves. However, we've a number of contracts that are time sensitive hence trying this again. The content facilities for uploading, reading and showing documents/other media are critical and relatively simple so hopefully someone will be able to do this and establish a decent working relationship as we've had in the past with some companies.
All work both on this project and future if the developer is one we can establish a longstanding ralationship with is under a NDA.
