Project Description

This project is a discussion forum. It lets users create their own forum (with up to 4 categories).

Total pages: (9 pages)

1-index - shows topic by author, date, views, replies. the index page is the first page a user sees when they first visit the site. Also, the index page (main default page) pulls posts from every forum.

2-acp - admin panel, settings for style of table backgrounds, topics per page, edit/add categories

3-acp - users page, so I can see all users.

4-user control panel - for users to change password, email, location, create their forum name, and edit their forum name, delete their forum (which deletes every post in their forum)

5-login - you know what this is already

6-register - simple registration for username, email, password, and captcha image

7-post topic page - page to post topic, title, and description, submit button, plus a "sticky" option that is available only for admin

8-show topic page - shows topic, date, author, views, and a reply box at end of the topic/thread, also shows user IP address and user email (both are shown to admin only)

9-members page - 3 columns::: shows members, their forum name, and post count for their particular forum.

Also need

header / footer file so i can edit/add links

and on index page, when mouse hovers over a topic, I'd like a popup box showing the first 200 or so characters from the topic description

when someone reply to a post, the post needs to be "bumped" back to the top of the forum (similar to vbulletin)

This is a pretty simple project. I DO NOT WANT PREMADE SCRIPT like vbulletin or invision board.

Payment via GAF escrow AFTER projects finish and works 100%, with no bugs.

I would like to communicate via IM like yahoo messenger. a test server is required.

There are no graphics, it's just plain HTML, I have the dummy HTML pages all done and will show to the programmer after auction.
