I have a site half completed that I need finished. The finished product must be fresh and ready to go. The website is a Joomla! 1.5 template installed and half developed. I no longer have the time to devote.
The site is a wedding vendor directory for the my local area (upstate NY). There are already sites which exist that basically do what I need it to do: allow vendors (photographers, videographers, etc.) to register for paid subscriptions to advertise their services. I will discuss with the provider what I want and do not want using these sites as examples, before work begins.
The subscriptions should have featured listings in addition to standard listings. I currently have sobi2 installed, but this extension does NOT need to be utilized. Instead, another may be. Regardless of the extension or directory program used, the site must be styled to match the template. It should be easy CSS work. I want the listings to look custom so the visitor does not know the site uses Sobi or whatever else is being utilized.
The subscriptions should allow vendors to offer coupons (special offers) to be displayed for an additional cost. The site should allow vendors to link to other vendors to create package deals for visitors. For instance, videographer & photographer are hired together and visitor gets 15% off each. (alliances with other vendors for package discounts).
There must be an option for vendors to pay for banner advertisements on the home page. Certain banner areas cost certain amounts, the price of which must be editable by admin area. Price based-on time period: 30days, 60 days, 6 months, 1-year.
There must be a review area and Star-rating (green for 3 or more; red for 2 or less) for each vendor. The visitor can create an account and then post a review of the vendor which then determines a star rating on the vendor's listing. When visitor's click on the star-rating, it prompts them to create a free-account before they can view the reviews for the vendor.
The vendor profile page, vendor resource page (including downloadable images they can use on their own sites - like "check out my listing on ******** "), vendor detail page (editable via vendor's account and viewable by visitor's who want to learn more about the vendor) where vendor can post pictures, video, services, prices, etc.
Needless to say, I need shopping cart integration, I prefer Virtuemart; but, open to suggestions. In addition, I would like the site to include a private support ticket forum that would allow subscribers/vendors to submit a ticket if they have any issue with their listing, subscription, etc. This would also be integrated into the site so the users experience is seamless.
I would like to speak with the provider before work begins. I would like the project finished quickly. Depending on price and performance, there may be additional development work for the provider in the VERY near future.
I want this project kicked-off immediately. So, I may award the project before the 5 days is expired. Good luck.
