Joomla template already installed needs editing to specification for a review website.
Main issue is we've been let down over people’s ability to create the upload, read and access documents on the site. Please be sure you can complete this job before bidding on it. Successful completion ensures first refusal at other larger projects in the coming months!
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 - auto reducing resolution where necessary.
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 its upload and management/display and access are critical. We have a number of projects requiring this type of work, instead of successful outsourcing we've been forced to complete them ourselves. We have more of them if we can identify someone capable of completing this work.
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 relationship with is under a NDA.
API - payment/google maps integration.
All ideas are welcomed, a flow chart is available for basic principles and a fully detailed brief to work from but one should have enough of a flavour of the work involved in this project.
Please also check you can access the site as we've been told the website isn't accessible from some countries and asked if it's a porn site. It has no adult content, only a review site with additional features for the review purpose's. I believe this was an excuse but it should be checked before bidding as we don't want to waste time and just want this completed ASAP.
