Custom forum

In Progress

This project requires a programmer with LAMP experience (required) who is familiar with basic forum conventions, or who has worked on forum applications (desired).

We are in need of a custom solution (or a customized version of an existing solution) that can apply a specific type of data display on top of conventional forum functionality.

Put in simpler terms, we need a modern forum architecture that will produce a menu with "open threading" like this:

[url removed, login to view]

Please note the display of the posts. Instead of a simple chronological list of posts under a topic, each post has a _parent_ which creates a hierarchy of posts under a topic. This allows forum users to respond to a specific reply. Indents are used to make it easier to read.

This "open threading" structure is _required_ and is not negotiable.

In addition, the forum should have the following functionality:

- Created in PHP and MySQL (required, don't even bother to ask if you can use something else)

- Accommodates multiple forums

- User registration and login system

- User profile screen linked from posts

- Private messaging system

- Photo uploading and embedding

- Modest text formating tools (bold, italic, size, color, smilies, embedded links)

- Moderation tools including: post deletion, user bans

- Users preference to determine how many days of posts to display on a menu

- Updated stylesheets and data display graphics

NOTE: the software currently running the forum linked above was written in perl in the mid-90's. It uses flat files for storage and has a hacked-together registration/login system. It may be possible to modify the existing code but trust me, it may also be much more difficult than starting over.

I made an arbitrary guess at a budget range. You let me know what it will cost.

I'm sure you will have questions, please let me know.

Hi, I have ample experience working with forums like PhpBB and VBulletin. Since you want to group the posts in a parent/category structure in contrast to a time based hierarchy, I think vBulletin pretty much does the s More
