Aim to create following Dashboard pages at front-end with loads of extra features, so author shouldn't go to dashboard for writing articles or manage profile, etc.
1. Add Article (publish article, add new features as described below): This is MOST important and techy part of this project. We are trying to provide full featured article publication platform to our members. This page will serve outstanding artificial intelligence to our members and make their work easy for publication an article, quickly and accurately. An author will have ability to set layout (frames) of the article (1 frame, 2 frames or 3 frames) and can add as many frames as possible in same article. Also, would be able to add as many Capsules (Text, Photo, Video, Audio, Map, RSS, Table, Poll, Link, Code, Quiz, Interview, Recipe) in frames, with lots of validations, and every capsule will have complete functionality about to give immense experience while writing an article. It will work like drag capsules in frame and create full functional article page. It will be a complete CMS tool for creating articles. Accordingly, article template will have to sync with these features. It may require to integrate database as well for creating new fields, etc. It may be required to create/edit templates ([url removed, login to view]), etc. etc. etc.
2. Statistics: We have created self-made plugin for showing Statistics about published Articles, Earnings, etc. It's already ready, Just bring at frond-end.
3. Comments (view and edit): An author would be able to manage Comments received by him through this page. Author can approve disapprove, spam, to comments received on his/her articles. Basically Comments section showing at Dashboard to show at front-end.
4. Profile (editing settings): Manage his profile and other settings through this page.
5. Media (view and edit): Manage all types of media (photos, videos, audio, etc) through this page.
