Avg Bid (USD)
Project Budget (USD)
$100 - $500

Project Description:
There are some great open source forum software apps like phpBB and others. These scripts have been well tested across hundreds of sites, patched for vulnerabilities, etc. Because of this, I would like to use something that has these features, but can be modified as follows: I am looking for somebody to modify an open source app (your choice of what to use) that will emulate the myspace GROUPS feature. Basically this is a 'Forums' type script but it allows individual users to go in and create their own forums (groups) and set the settings for that group. If you are not familiar with this, please check out the groups section. You can set forum rules to invitation only, private, public, etc. You can customize the landing page for that group with graphics, images, etc. This will allow thousands of users to have their own custom forums, each with their own moderator (whoever created that forum), with their own 'join rules' and more. Groups can be simple like this: Or they can be modified to be advanced like this: If you do not have experience working with forum software, then please do not bid.

If there is already software on the market that does exactly what I want, is well tested, is secure, etc., then lets please talk about it and work on the modifications I need.
