Website for aspiring and amateur writers to post their work, get rated, and reviewed by readers and their peers. And also expose themselves to potential publishers.
I need a lightweight PHP website (or wordpress site) that has these functions:
1. New User Signup
2. Existing User login
>>Users can manage their stories from within their profile
3. Posting New Stories using a simple WYSIWYG editor within their user profile.
4. upload a simple bookcover
5. Admin Backend to manage submitted stories, users, create new pages, forums, etc.
6. Designer will need to create me a logo and incorporate that into the design.
7. Detailed Author Profiles with the ability to add their author picture, links to their blogs.
8. Each published story needs to be protected so no one can copy it from the webpage. (Right Click disable ?)
9. Layout: Header image with logo, 3 columns. (I would like a cozy fireplace with a table with an Ipad or tablet on the table. Giving the idea of a cozy cabin, and the reader is sitting down to enjoy the new authors stories.
>>> The logo will resemble this logo ([url removed, login to view]), but not exactly like it, for obvious reasons. But will say WRITING EXPOSURE. A nice quill on the top of the word logo will be great.
10. Front page main middle section will showcase latest published stories. When user clicks on the page, it will take it to the author's complete story.
11. New Readers must sign up for free to browse the selection. All users must be logged in in order to access the bulk of the site.
12. Social Sharing Buttons on each story
13, Colors: Cozy Warm, Browns, Reds, Dark Greens.
DESIGN and USER FRIENDLINESS is KEY HERE. Creativity is a must!
If you can do all of this with Wordpress, I am okay with that.
