241434 Social Networking Website

Project Description

I need a social network website built for brides that has a discussion board similar to the one on [url removed, login to view], but with a look that is similar to www.weddingchicks.squarespace.com. I like the features of the bridalinsider forum, but the clean girly look of the weddingchicks site.

There will be three main tabs: forum, vendors and forms. I would also like a link to my personal blog.

The MOST important feature will be the discussion board/forum. The forum should have all of the same features as bridalinsider's discussion board. I would like custom development of navigation, forms, Javascript, PHP, etc., but am open to using software such as vbulletin (owned license w/ branding free option) if it can be customized to look how I want and has all of the features needed (pm's, unlimited uploaded photos, unlimited posts, threaded topics, etc.). I am not sure that Joomla offers all of those features? Visitors will need to log-in to join, although membership for brides will be free. Members MUST be allowed to upload UNLIMITED personal photos from their computers, not just use urls, as well as keep wedding journals as on bridalinsider (which is a topic under discussion board). I need it to be user friendly as I will be the moderator/administrator and enter all initial topics. I also want a topic on the discussion board that vendors only can post in for a fee allowing them unlimited advertising by being able to upload their info, links,photos, contests, etc. Please note,this is not a clone of [url removed, login to view], just an example of how the forum must work, so please pay close attention to the discussion board, not the site layout.

I will need an original logo to be designed (printable as well as web), although I have an idea that I will forward to the winning bidder. The website must be VERY girly and an original design. I do not want a template that is purchased from another website and/or used for resale. An example of what I mean by girly is www.weddingchicks.squarespace.com. I have already purchased the domain to be used for our site. We will also need copywriting and SEO.

The vendor tab will need to be easily modifiable to add/delete vendors. I will enter chosen vendors when we select them. Example of a vendor tab on bridalinsider as well, although we will only be listing vendors for San Diego at this time. Example: [url removed, login to view]

The forms tab will have basic fillable forms that calculate such as guest list, gift list, wedding party, budget calculator, etc.

We must be able to easily place ads as seen on bridalinsider and weddingchicks website. We would like rotating banner ads as well as regular banner ads, so we will also need a paypal option to allow vendors to pay for the adspace. There should just be an “advertise with us” link that allows vendors to email us for info on advertising on our site.

This site must be very user friendly and in a format that could be easily updated should we decide to add on at a later date by another web designer for any reason.

Please only respond if you have built social network sites and have examples of your work. We are hoping to get the site up and running within 30 days. Fluent English also appreciated. Thank You and Happy Bidding!!!
