Project Description

Dear freelancer,

we are looking for a freelancer or company helping us to realize the website nowihelp.

Nowihelp will be a non-profit social website where user can register and publish non-profit social projects. Similar to [url removed, login to view]

Users can choose a social project and support it or publish own projects.



Altogether we have about 50 pages – around 10 more complex dynamic pages, around 20 easier dynamic pages (login, ...) and 20 static pages.

Special things:

- There is an administration area for projects, reports, patrons, news, user, Payouts.

- And a basic right management - superAdmin (over all countries), countryAdmin (access to everything on one website/domain or country), projectAdmin, … (separate access to admin areas)

- Website is multisite (Website can be used by different separated countries / domainnames. All user, projects, … are completely separated – so it shouldn’t be too complex).

- Website is one language at the beginning but must be prepared to be Multilanguage and localized.

- eMail spooling: there a triggers (eg. a user delete a project that is not fully funded OR Active member that do have zero Adviews for more than 7 days) where eMails need to be generated to a lot of user. Therefor we need email templates and sending using a kind of spooling (first store eMails in filesystem or DB and send it later)

- Pool project – special project if user didn’t choose a specific project or project is fully funded and user was assigned to that project before

- Caching is very important

- Formhandling (with tooltips, error messages, JS errorcheck, server validation, …), integration of CKEdit, XSS, … protection using whitelist, …



Everything must be based on:

- Yii – it’s important to use Yii way of doing for security, authentication, errorhandling, logging, testing, …

- bootstrap (latest release 3) and a readymade bootstrap template that must be modified only a little bit


- Mysql

- jQuery


- hosted by Amazon AWS

What I will make available


- clickable prototype with a detailed concept

- basic design and all graphical elements – almost everything is bootstrap / jQuery based with the a ready made template

- basic database concept (mySql Workbench model – but not all attributes and relations are defined)

- access to issue / bug tracking

- you have always someone to talk to and ask whatever you need



It should be possible to start working on the website at around 9th of Sep. 2013.

Soft launch should be end of year - 20th of Dec. 2013

We can define milestones and payments together.



- solid experiences in programming bigger applications using Yii, PHP, bootstrap / jQuery, and mySQL

- some experiences using Amazon AWS (S3, EC2, ElastiCache, SES, …)

- It should be possible, that you send me the source code of a demo application you’ve done before that is using the basic technologies (Yii, Bootstrap / jQuery, …) – something that includes a multilanguage form, validation, DB-Access (read, write, update), user verification, ... - E.g. Register, login to a website and edit the profile if user is logged in.

nowihelp is not a small website – but if you have advanced experiences with Yii, bootstrap and jQuery, … it shouldn’t be too complicated…

If you are interested and have time for the project please send a PM with some information about you and demo code and I’ll send further information.

I would be glad to hear from you…

THANK YOU + best Regards
