I am looking for someone to create a social networking type site that will people do the following:
• Standard Account Administration (create accounts, change password, forgot password)
• Upload images and edit them online.
• Users must be able to adjust the size of the photo and overlay stock images
• Similar to sites that you can upload a picture and overlay a funny hat on someone head.
• Users can add descriptions to the image and categorize them (or create tags)
• Users should also be able to create images bases on the sites stock 75 backgrounds and 75 overlay images. I will supply the images you will be to put them in the correct format.
• Members have the option to save the image on the site.
• Members should be able to share their photos
• Members should be able to comment and rate other photos
• Other sites should not be able to hot link the photos
• Users should be able to search using the photo descriptions and tags
• Users should be able to traverse a directory tree of categories and sort by ratings and # of downloads.
• Members have the option to be notified when new comments are posted for one of their photos
• Users can download/print the images
• The application should generate a secure PDF document for downloading & printing. This should prevent users from manipulating the PDF if any way
• ¾ of the page will be the edited photo the remaining ¼ will be the photo name and description along with 2 ads. The site admin should be able to change these 2 ads on a weekly basis.
• All onscreen images should be smaller and lower quality than PDF (deter users from saving the files without site branding via the PDF document)
• Members can send “invitations” to for others to check out a photo
• Participate in a forum (vbulletin forum integrated with site login)
• Each member should get their own page (http://sitename.com/membername)
• Members should have the ability to choose that personal information they would like to share (name,location,age,website…etc)
• Users should be able to report if an image is offensive or prohibited
• A CMS for Articles – Both site and user submitted
• The site must function on IE, Firefox, and Chrome browsers.
The site admin should be able to do the following from an admin page:
• Modify all photos
• Change photo description, unshared or delete photos
• Check for reported offensive or prohibited photos
• Modify user accounts
• Moderate the forum
• View site statistics – page views – banner stats – downloads – etc.
The site should be very SEO friendly. The site will need a banner system so we add banners to the site. It should include a statistical tracking for each click on a banner and how many times a photo was downloaded with each ad. The layout should also include Adsense ads on each page. The design of the site should be professional and be intuitive for the users. I need a turn-key solution that includes all design work and PHP/AJAX and MySQL programming. Must provide fully documented code and install on my server at the end of the project. We are looking for a long term partner that would update the site at an hourly rate.
Before we award the contract we would like to see examples of similar work so we are confident you understand our requirements and have the skills to achieve it.
