This site can be either developed from scratch or built on a customisable open-source CMS or social network platform such as BuddyPress, Drupal or Elgg. Preference is to reduce cost and time by using existing platform and plug ins that can be customised.

Must have knowledge of LinkedIn API's.

User hierarchy:

Site admin/manager

Network 1 manager...

Network 1 users ...

Network 2 manager ...

Network 2 users ...

Stage 1 requirements:

Home/landing page inc. graphic design

platform for multiple networks on the one site eg. [url removed, login to view]; [url removed, login to view] etc.

Sign up page including LinkedIn Open Authorisation (OAuth)

Database with user profile information extracted from LinkedIn

One to one and one to many messaging functionality

Repository for uploaded content inc. documents, links, audio, video

User sub-groups with messaging features

Discussion forum

Event calendar

Job posts inc. job post template/form and application form

Network manager dashboard plus the following functionality:

Ability to upload news feeds and online content

Create and manage events that get sent out to users calendars

Advanced search for network members based on multiple search criteria

Creation of folders with saved user profiles from search results

Reporting tool for network manager to publish report on users e.g. number of users by location, industry, company etc

Site admin/manager dashboard plus the following functionality:

As above for network manager but access to messaging, search and reporting for all networks on the site

Website analytics (preferably a free tool such as Google Analytics) to measure number of unique visits, page views, time spent on site etc.

Ability to create new networks eg. [url removed, login to view]

Advertising banner (top page and side bar)

Some graphic design will be required but general design principle will be simple to conform with LinkedIn style

Hosting will most likely be on Amazon Web Services

Timeframe is 6-8 weeks for development and 2 weeks of testing

Payment will be based on milestone completion

I require a bid on the entire Stage 1 website development and would prefer to see a breakdown estimating the project plan/development phases and proposed milestone payments.

I will not consider bids that are only for the for an initial milestone payment.

Thank you.
