Hello, we are to do a redesign of our current site, [url removed, login to view], very soon. At the moment we are looking for a programmer who can program functionality from our site to our FTP for our clients to upload materials directly from our website.
For example, the site is going to be built in Flash by us, and we are going to put a "FTP" link on the site as a button. This FTP link is going to pop open a new window that will have a username and password function. After a client types in their username and password they will have the ability to upload what they need to their specified folder that already exists on our server. They click an "upload" button and they are set— Files upload to their specified folder on our server.
The deal with this is that we are going to design the entire site, the button, the pop up (which could be a .php extension if php is the solution) and the form with the submit button.
We just need someone to program the username password event handlers and upload button that shoots the materials they are uploading from their desktop to that specified folder on our FTP server.
Please let me know how long this would take and the cost to provide this programming service. I am going to leave this up for 3 days so any input is greatly appreciated. If chosen, we will contact you after our site is built to put together—which is not at the moment since we have barely begun our site design in Flash.
We believe that having someone on deck with this job to come is of most importance and that confirming someone for the job ahead of time is important.
