Project Description

I need to set up a website that allows users to:

- post URLs of interest

- have threaded conversations about them

- use Latex in their comments

- combine conversations regarding URLs -- for example, when 2 URLs lead to the same content, a moderator should be able to combine the discussions regarding them

On the face of it, this could be something like Reddit. However, I also need:

- users to be able to log in using OpenId, Facebook and the website's own profiles

- need to be able to prevent reposts by combining conversations

- customise the layout (to a limited extent)

- add a banner ad

- (possibly) use Akismet or something to prevent comment spam

I will need the freelancer to build the website, install it on my server (on Dreamhost) and walk me through the code.

If this project is undertaken, the freelancer should be prepared to extend the website:

- to scan a set of domain names for links of interest to automatically initiate conversations on

- extract straightforward information (eg, author names & email addresses) for posting in the conversations on the website

In case it is of any help in understanding what I want, the website is meant to help discuss scientific papers.
