I require an on-line community portal and bulletin board. Features include: * Ability for people to post non-commercial messages * Ability for people to post advertisements, for a fee (with hooks to credit-card processor like [url removed, login to view] and PayPal) * Ability to add articles * Section where RSS feeds for outside news can be added * Scrolling news section (also from RSS) * Community calendar that can be edited and printed * Registration for users, letting them choose usernames/passwords * Permission-based system so people with correct privileges can edit various sections, or post to certain section * Ability to age out old postings (deleting them if they are older than X number of days) * Ad management - pages of portal should have ability to display ads on the sides and bottom * There should be levels of access based on who the user is. Regular users would only be able to post ads or messages; more privileged users would be able to do things like edit or remove ads, add events, add categories or regions, etc. * Messages would need to be categorized - for sale, services, carpools, discussions. * It should be flexible enough to use the same software for different geographic locations, where the messages and ads would be different (but advertisers could ask to place their ads in all locations) * Ability to upload pictures in messages (birth announcements, item for sale, logo) * Ability to search messages per geographic location by simple keyword search * Ability to create an RSS feed from messages and/or articles on a geography basis * Allowing specific email addresses to email messages/events in a structured format so they don't need to log in * WYSIWYG editor for messages
