Frontend specifications (visitor/member side)
---------------------------------------------

- variable width ( pages over whole screen, width:100%)

- static, customisable header , hight: 150 - 160 px. Possibility to change background picture
and logo picture, and add text

- static, customisable footer containing textual navigation and place for text ads and banners

- static, customisable left column with vertical navigation bar, including links to non-catalog pages and
catalog categories which can be added/deleted from admin area. Links to login form and registration form also placed here. Left column also
contains simple search box ( search by keyword ). Search results are shown in dynamic central area in form of paginated
products listing.
Non-catalog pages : I shell be able to add pages with consistant look and feel and also links to those pages. I suppose
that I would do it manually, but it must be enabled and explained to me. If there is possibility to do it also from admin
area, as for catalog pages (products), that would be great.

- static right column where other links, text ads, banners, etc. can be placed

- dynamic content placed in pages central area:

- products listed as in shopping catalogs (with pagination) but only one product per raw and without "buy now " buttons.
Every product listed with picture, description and download link. Listed products separated with horisontal dashed
line, or some other thin graphical devider
- dynamic area above products listings where logged-in members links to members pages and short personalised messages
are placed. Advanced search box also appears here.
- advanced search is by category, title, author, keyword
- simple login form ( username, password ) and with "password reminder" feature and "register now " link
- registration form : mandatory fields : username, password, confirm password, email addres, first name, last name,
" I agree to the terms & conditions" checkbox
optional fields : addres, city, state, country, zip, phone, fax
- two step registration: confirmation email with confirmation link automatically sent to user upon registration. User
is active and able to login first after confirmation via email.
Important: When user clicks once the confirmation link he will land on confirmation page. Confirmation
page is ment to be presented only once to every free member, it will contain so called "one-time offer",
e.g. discounted Gold Membership. It shell be impossible to land on that same page ( or page with same contents )
by clicking confirmation link later in confirmation email. If user clicks confirmation link second time he shell
only see " you have allready confirmed...etc.".

- users can register as free members and then have options to upgrade to (buy) paid membership levels: silver, gold and
platinum membership. Monthly and yearly payment shell be available, and one-time payments also (life-time memberships
for each membership level).
integrated payment gateways shell be: at least these 3 : PayPal, 2CO and ClickBank. (both
recurring billing and one-time payments)
- email system automatically sends membership renewal reminder emails, confirmation emails, thank-you emails,
wellcome emails etc. Emails configurable from admin area. Emails can be sent both as text and HTML.
- users can download products first after login. Users cannot download products which are not included in their
membership. They are prompted to upgrade membership upon attempt to download such produts.
- users cannot see download path using right mouse click, or in any other way. Download links point to php file
witch handles downloads by quering database. Download links placed in database tables from admin area.
- logged in members can edit their profiles through profile form
- logged in members can change password
- both members and visitors can contact support through simple webform (form to email feature).
Fields: first name, last name, email addres, subject, message. All fields here are mandatory.
- " bookmark this site " feature included in all pages, e.g. in right column
- "tell a friend" feature included
- logged in members have access to members pages through links which appears only for logged in members, above
product listings area. Those links are : Affiliate program, Read & Post Articles, Download Help, Edit Profile,
Change Password, Cancel Membership, Logout. This area shell be editable either from admin area or manually,
so that I can add more links to more members pages.


-----------------------------------
ADMINISTRATION AREA SPECIFICATIONS:
-----------------------------------

- - secure admin login --

- admin login link shell NOT be placed on front side or anywhere else
- directory containing admin area shell NOT be named "admin". Admin directory shell be named something difficult to guess
- change admin password feature

- Members Management :
-----------------------
- comprehensive members statistics available to admin.
- Display total number of registered members on homepage can be turned ON/OFF
- search members by date registered , by member ID/Username, by membership type; add/delete/suspend/ban members, etc. All
standard members management features included.

- email management system included :

- membership expiration and email sending are handled by cron jobs. You suggest optimal cron jobs time intervals
for best performance
- number of emails sent per cron execution can be defined by admin

NOTE: email system and cron jobs must be rigorously tested and must function fast and with no error

- members can be redirected to the page of choice upon logout

- Memberships/Payment system management:
----------------------------------------
- PayPal, 2CO, Clickbank are minimal requirement.
- configuration of membership types
- configuration of membership prices
- configuration of payment gateways available to members
- one-time payments and recurring billing available.

NOTE: payment process for every gateway must be rigorously tested and must function perfectly


-Products management:
----------------------

- manage ( edit/add/delete ) categories (presented as navigation links on left navbar on front end)
- manage products :
- edit/add/delete products
- upload pictures (thumbnails, good quality preserved), admin can define width and hight of thumbnail pictures
"enlarge picture" feature shell NOT be included.
- edit/add/delete product descriptions and download links
(I assume that download links should be handled through mysql db and download.php file in order for path to be
invisible for members. Download links should probably point to download.php which then queries db so that every
products download link calls from db).


- Database management:
-----------------------
admin can backup database from admin area ( optional)
