Project Description:
We are seeking the development of the complete (back-end and front-end) software for niche social networking sites. In case you’re not very familiar, social networking sites are the likes of MySpace, Facebook, Friendster, Bebo. These sites appeal to everyone. “Niche?? sites are almost exactly like these sites, but targeted towards a specific niche/category. For example Motortopia (www.motortopia.com) is a social networking site dedicated to automobile/boat/boke/plane enthusiasts (a “MySpace?? for cars); while Chess.com (www.chess.com) is a social networking site for chess enthusiasts (a “MySpace?? for chess enthusiasts); RealTravel.com (www.realtravel.com) is a social networking site for travelers, tourists, adventurers (a “MySpace?? for travel; you get the idea); and so on and so forth. We are setting up 2 of these sites to cover an automobile site, as well as a business oriented sites. We therefore want the complete working system to run such a site(s). There are existing free and for-fee social networking scripts out there, like PHPFox (www.phpfox.com) and DZOIC Handshakes (www.dzoic.com) , as well as PHPiZabi (http://www.phpizabi.net/) which is free or Dolphin (http://www.boonex.com/products/dolphin/) which is great and free. However, we want a custom solution that we can really call our own, and free of the branding credits needed for the aforementioned projects and those like it. Features should include the ones included here: (sample taken from DZOIC) http://www.dzoic.com/features.php But with very heavy emphasis on Blogs and blogging. Technology: PHP MySQL Apache Linux Smarty (http://smarty.php.net) templating engine
