What I need done:
This will be a directory type site that will allow the visitor to locate/contact service providers in South Africa. It will consist of three sections: “Building it”, “Landscaping it”, Decorating it”.
Building it: Service providers from the building industry
Landscaping it: Gardening and landscaping
Decorating it: Architects, furniture etc…
Each of these sections must contain a menu that allows the visitor to select a subcategory within this section: such as Equipment Hire, Scaffolding, Architects…etc. Once such as sub-category is selected, a list of service providers in alphabetical order, under a subheading of each province, will be displayed - see this example:
[url removed, login to view]
As you click on a particular service provider, a page opens dedicate to their service, provided they pay for this feature, else they just remain in the basic information page (Company Name, Telephone, Area of operation) that opens as you select your sub-category from the main menu.
The page that is dedicated to each service provider will contain detailed information about them, such as web address, email, description, images, logo etc…
New prospective clients/advertisers need to be able to register on the site, Select the sections they’d like to be associated in. then the system must e-mail me so we can sign them up.
See attached spreadsheet for details of how the backend should work.
What I already have versus what the provider will build:
This is a brand-new site. I have the basic layout designed with graphics etc. I already have all the copy-writing for the site done.
There is an excel spreadsheet attached with a basic layout/required field attached. Please look at it, any additional initiative and functionality would be greatly appreciated.
Specific expertise that I am seeking:
You should have experience designing MySQL database with PHP site pages.
First prize would be a Joomla 1.5 based site with our front page converted to a Joomla 1.5 Template (This is not however a must) websites.
Timeframe for delivery:
I need to have this up and running in 4 to 6 weeks.
