Hi everyone! I'm looking to hire a coder asap to help create sort of a social network for me. I've posted this before, and I started working with coders twice but neither was reliable enoug to follow through. Now I've increased the budget a bit and I need someone with excellent communication skills, and I strongly prefer someone who lives in the US and speaks excellent english.
Here are a few details about the project. It is going to be a social network, similar to myspace but with slightly different features. The template for the site is already done and I would need the coder to be able to work the code into what has been made already. What we need coded:
Members should be able to register, add friends, leave comments on other pages and instant message each other. There should also be a search function.
Users of the site should be able to sign up and have their own profile with a short url. They will be able to fill out a questionairre that will be displayed on the profile. The key difference to the site will be the blog posts. Each blog post will include a thumbnailed picture, text, user comments and an optional poll.
Another defining feature of the site will be a wishlist that every member can create. Each member should be able to choose a variety of products on the site to add to their wishlist, where they can also add comments to each item they choose. And lastly, the should be able to choose a label for each choice, which will be an image that appears with each product.
Tagging & Categories
Members should be able to add tags to their profiles and blog posts, as well as categorize them.
Through the admin panel i should be able to manage, edit and delete members, as well as anything they add to the site. I also need to be able to add new products for the wishlist by hand and categorize them.
I'd like the script to be compatible with XMB forum.
- I would like the site to be unencrypted, because we will definetly want to add on in the future
- It needs to be done in php
- I need to have full rights to the script
- I can pay via paypal only
- I want to be able to see some progress before payment is sent
- I need to be able to communicate with you several times a week. Email replies should be quick and I also need to be able to speak with you via MSN.
Budget: $300-$400 (please don't contact me if you're asking for something above this, I don't have the time)
