Project Description

To: Prospective Developer,

We have a Joomla 3.2 website that includes EasyDiscuss (a Q & A type forum), EasyBlog and Jomsocial. All 3 components share points / badges.

The Project:

We are looking for an experienced developer to add the following features:

1) Comment voting -

EasyDiscuss currently allows users to vote-up and vote-down questions. It also allows Comments to be added, but we would like Comment vote-up and vote-down functionality as well.

2) Following -

Note: Please register a free account at [url removed, login to view] to see how the following features work there. We require similar functionality.

a) Ability to Follow Questions -

EasyDiscuss only allows users to subscribe to a question and receive notifications via email when someone posts.

We would like to extend on this and also allow users to be able to follow questions the way Quora does it (eg see the green "Follow Question" on Quora, and the 'Follow' link below the questions). Besides receiving email notifications, the status and updates will also appear on the user's Jomsocial page.

a) Ability to Follow Users -

Facebook / Jomsocial have "Add Friend" which requires both parties to agree. We need to implement "following" that allows users to follow one another (but no need to be approved by the other person). This feature should be prominently added to EasyDiscuss the way Quora does it, and show up in the users' Jomsocial page as well.

Extensions to be included:

All extensions/modules must be easy to style with custom CSS. We should be able to upgrade the installed components without the new functionality breaking.

-- Comment Voting (to be implemented on EasyDiscuss)

-- Follow Questions (to be implemented on EasyDiscuss; with updates via email and on user's Jomsocial profile page)

-- Follow/Unfollow a user (to be implemented on EasyDiscuss and user's Jomsocial profile page)

Eg. See the bubble open up when you mouseover a user's name in EasyDiscuss, with a Follow button and number of followers.

Also, once you click on the green Follow button, it changes to "Following".

-- User's followers (for a user's profile page - refer to Quora, eg [url removed, login to view])

-- User's followings (for a user's profile page - refer to Quora, eg [url removed, login to view])

We are happy to accept advice and recommendations of best implementation.

We can offer:

-- a clone of the site for you to work on (ensures compatibility)

-- existing components


Crossbrowser compatibility for:

-- Chrome, Safari, FF, and IE (last 3 versions).

The component, modules, and plugins must be compatible with the latest versions of EasyDiscuss, EasyBlog and Jomsocial.


You must deliver clean commented code and a short description document that describes the functionality and implementation in good english.


We would like to choose a developer this week. Let us know how long it will take you to develop. We would prefer by end of March 2014.
