Project Description

Greetings. I am seeking an experienced web developer who has extensive knowledge in working with open-source applications to continue work started by another coder (who set up the initial design and template for my website) for a unique new social networking website which will connect site visitors through the power of sharing specific information. Please note there is already an existing open source template for the website so your task will be customizing the existing template through plug-ins, your own code, and source code for Facebook and Twitter connect.

?

I would like a coder who is able to use Skype or instant messenger to communicate with me in where I can provide real-time feedback and someone who is patient and able to explain technical language well to me and is willing to make modifications to the site as needed during construction of the site to ensure it is perfect.?

?

Please read through these requirements below carefully as I need a coder is able to complete ALL of what is listed here as each requirement is an important component of the site. You will be working closely with another coder who developed the template for the site and he will be providing you with all source code, userids, passwords and beta site urls for you to complete the project.

?

I have already paid for hosting for the site and it is currently running up on a server. Upon completion of the project, the coder will upload the beta site to the domain name purchased for this site.

Below please find the requirements for each page of the website.

?

**General**

1)? ? ? ? ? The font for all text on the site will be Georgia font. All labels for text or drop-down fields will be in Georgia bold font.

2)? ? ? ? ? Every page will have a Terms/Privacy/Contact Us footer on the bottom of the page (already included in the template for the log-in page, just need to duplicate this for every page)

3)? ? ? ? ? On top right corner of every page there will be a Logout button and the username displayed

4)? ? ? ? ? On top right corner of every page (except the Login page) there will be search box.

5)? ? ? ? ? On top middle of every page there will be menu bar with links to each of the pages.

6)? ? ? ? ? On top left of every page the logo will be displayed (the logo will be protected so no one may download it but will have to send an email to request permission to download it)

7)? ? ? ? ? When user clicks on logo on top left of page, the same page the user is on will refresh.

8)? ? ? ? ? I have a detailed requirements document that I will email the winning bidder providing the exact wording and content for every page.

9)? ? ? ? ? Every page on this site needs to be operational and readable for users accessing it on both Mozilla and Internet Explorer browsers.

10)? All Trademark for logos and content for each page and copyright will be owned by myself.

?

? **Login page**

11)? Upload welcome text

12)? Underneath the existing login and signup box, have links for Forgot Password? and Forgot Username? that will take user to page where they can lookup or reset their userid or password

13)? Add a menu bar to the top of the page with clickable links to all pages of the website on there

14)? Remove a Search box on the top left corner of the page

15)? Underneath the userid and password login box, create a separate login box where users who already have a Twitter or Facebook account may login to this website with their profiles transferred over to this website automatically (you will have to get Twitter and Facebook source code for this functionality which should be free source code)

16)? Add a separate box at the bottom right of the page with icons for Facebook, twitter, Rss and other social media sites where visitors to this page they will be taken to the website’s fan page and can sign up to be a fan or follow the site.

? ? ? ? ? An example is the **STAY CONNECTED** box at this URL: ? ?

<[url removed, login to view]>

17)? An important requirement is that once a registered user logs on, they will remain logged

on at every page of the application until they click a Logout button on the top right corner of every page very similar to Facebook. Also on the top right corner of every page, the user’s name will be displayed to the right of the logout button, again very similar to Facebook layout. Once a user successfully logs in through the log in page, they will remain logged in until they click a logout button which will display on the top left corner of every page, including the login page, to the right of the user’s name

18)? On middle right of the page there will be a drop-down box (with English as the default) for user to select what language they want to view the website in. The languages will be English, Spanish, French, and Mandarin. Every page, label, text, instruction, and user comment will be displayed in the selected language, the only thing that will remain in English is the logo on top left of the page.

?

? **Home page**

1)? ? ? ? ? Upload already written text that I will provide

?

? **About Us page**

1)? ? ? ? ? Upload already written text that I will provide

?

? **Community page**

**­**The main feature of the site where users will be able to read posts from other registered users and click on a button to vote on the posts of other users.

1) When a user is logged in, this page will display very similar to a Facebook profile page where the user’s photo, personal and contact information will be displayed (the open source application I already have has a template for this)

2) On the left side of this page will display the users RSVP events/calendar

3) On the right side of the page there will be a scrolling up and down arrow where users can click on ads that people have posted after they purchase ad space from the Advertisement page. Each ad clicked on will take user to a separate page outside of the website.

4) Right next to the scrolling add space there will be three boxes from top of page to bottom. On first box, this will display a “What’s New?? box where I as the administrator can post news and information updates so all users can see this. On the second box, the newest blog/story posting will be displayed where users can click and be taken to that posting story. On the third box it will display the user with the most votes for their posting story

5) In the middle of the page there will be a drop down list of categories that users can select to either post a new story to, or read stories posted by other users.

6) If user wants to post a new story, they will be taken to a page to post the story, once they have successfully logged in and that story automatically shows up in that category and also in the Latest story second box I mentioned in number 5)

7) If user wants to read a story in a category, they will select the category, read the story and have two options: a) click on a button at the bottom of the story to vote for it, a button like “I like this??. And b) click on a Share This or Addthis button to share the story on their Facebook, Twitter, Digg, etc. page (this is open source code you can find for free)

8) The users friends will be displayed on the left side of this page above their RSVP events/calendar box.

?

**Events page**

The application I have selected already has an events plug-in which will just need to be customized by the winning bidder:

1)? ? ? ? ? When user access this page they will have two options. Create an Event or Search for an Event.

2)? ? ? ? ? If user clicks on Create an Event they will be taken to a separate page where they have to fill in required fields like select dropdown category of event, city of event, country of event, description of event etc. The user will have to also click two check boxes indicating they agree to the website a) Terms & Conditions, and b) Privacy before they can click the Submit Event button. The page also will have error message if all required fields are not filled in.

3)? ? ? ? ? If user clicks on Search for an Event, they will be taken to a separate screen with different search fields they can use to search for an event and then click on the Submit button. After they click on the Submit button, they will be taken to a page displaying all the Event posting results.

?

? ? ? ? **Advertisement page**

**1)? ? ? ? ? I already have the script for an ad software package and this page needs to be created using that page with the purchase add button coded with my Paypal account. Once a user purchases ad space, it will automatically be posted in the next available open slot on the right hand side of the Community page. Additionally, the ad will be deleted once a user cancels their add subscription (the software has this functionality so the winning bidder just has to read through the documentation on how to do this). To see an example of how I want this page to look, see: *[url removed, login to view]***

**? **

**? **Contact Us page****

1)? ? ? ? ? This page will just have text and hyperlinks to three different email addresses and the same style and background layout as the Home and About Us pages.
