I need a website where the site owner creates a weekly dinner menu using a CMS and others will subscribe to it to gain access to the shopping list and prices of items in the list. They will add new recipes or re-use old recipes in their weekly meal planner and then subscribers can log in and print a shopping list that lists the prices of each item at various grocery stores. The site will need locations for banner ads and a system in the CMS to manage those ads. The visitors to the site need to be able to search for old recipes.
The site also needs to be able to have an integrated Groupon/Living Social daily deal feature.
Both the front end and back end need to be developed. Back end may use either proprietary CMS or open source CMS. PHP and MySQL is preferred.
The site needs to be integrated with Authorize.net (or similar) for the processing of subscriptions and purchasing of daily deals. No shopping cart is necessary - only one item is available for purchase per day, users only need to be able to change the number of items to purchase. Subscriptions will need to be able to be set up to automatically charge users monthly. Subscriptions need to be able to have a free introductory period as set by the Site Admin.
All weekly meal plans and shopping lists need to remain archived and open to the public when they are more than two weeks old. All recipes and old meal plans need to be searchable to site visitors (free users).
I will provide the website design in xHTML format.

I have extended this project 1 week because the client has chosen to make some last-minute changes to the xHTML.
I am sorry for any inconveniences this may cause you as a bidder. Please let me know if this affects your bid in any way.
