WHAT IS REQUIRED:
Built to run within an existing Joomla site we require the development of a limited social networking component.
The purpose of this social network site is for users to review products that the site administrator has listed on their wall
The feel, layout and interaction to be similar to be complimentary to our own and also similar to facebook.
WHAT HAPPENS ON THE SITE:
Every 2 weeks the site administrator will (from the site admin area) post information on six products. These will appear on everyones wall.
Users will be notified by auto email when admin has posted new products for review. The user then comes to the site and their profile page and posts their reviews of the products and give them a score between 1-20.
When users friends also comment on the same product ussers will be able to see their friends comments and scores on their own wall/product tab.
Users can also comment on each others comments.
There are 3 professional reviewers we call them judges. These judges are automatically everyones friends and all there comments are posted automatically on everyones wall.
When a user rates a product they give it a score between 1 and 20. This is published next to their review.
The users reviews are also automatically added to their ‘My notes' page. This will have all the product fields listed by admin plus users notes and rank. The notes will be listed using the manufacturers name alphabetically
The products will be listed in six individual tabs or ‘comment' boxes.
When the next six products are listed they are posted above the previous six products.
If a user has a facebook account, this needs to be linked with their profile page on our site so user comments are posted on their facebook page. This link should be created as part of their registration.
Registration process to have similar steps with facebook, however there is an added payment step.
Step 1: Welcome page with explanation. We will build this
Step 2 registration
Fields on step 1 or registration process:
- Enter first name
- Last name
- date of birth (if under 21 user cannot proceed)
- Question: do you wish to pay to receive products? Yes – no
If ‘yes' the next screen is a payment options page. Paypal or online banking
If they choose paypal they will be taken to paypal site and returned once payment is made
If online banking they are taken to next screen showing payment instructions and having hyperlinks to bank websites. With words, Once you have set up your payments please click next
If no they go straight to next step.
Find friends as per Facebook
Add profile picture:
For each of the tabs appearing on user walls these fields need to be filled from admin area.
Upload company logo image
Upload product image
Find a friend
Auto emails: emails to be sent to users from site admin
When a user requests to become a friend
When new products listed by admin
When professional judges have posted a product review
When a friend has commented on a users review
And when more comments are made on that conversation.
When a user is directly emailed by a friend
These can be adjusted by user.
