Drupal Community/Social Networking Site

We're building a Community/Social Networking/Resource/News type website for a niche audience. We've selected Drupal as the core, but it will need a lot of customization to fit our needs.

We're looking for a very reliable, experienced Drupal Expert. Prior Drupal experience is required. Preference will be given to developers that can provide examples of prior Drupal experience implementing/integrating User Profile Pages, User Galleries (photos/videos), Forums, Blogs, Classifieds, News Feeds, etc.



We're seeking someone we can work with long term. This will be a continuing venture. We'd like to start with the features listed, but can scale back on some features if necessary, an expand the site as we go along. Your experience with Drupal, and your reliability is a must.


We'll need User Profile pages similar to a MySpace page. Users can edit their layouts, post info, list their latest forum posts, link to photos and videos that they posted in the community gallery.

User Galleries will allow users to upload items (photos and videos) for display in a community Gallery. Should be able to tag items, view all items, search items, or view items uploaded by a single user.

Forum - Will need to integrate with VBulletin, IPB, PHPBB3, or similar. I believe PHPBB3 may have the highest level of Drupal integration at the moment. Recent post title will need to be displayed on Home page of Drupal site. Would like to link forum usernames back to the Drupal User Profiles instead of the forum profiles.

Blogs - Will have a few blogs for "news reporters". These will be limited number of people.

Classifieds - Will need classifieds area for users to post items for sale. Will later be expanded to charge for these listings. This can be a third party script integrated in Drupal. Or it can be contained in Drupal using CCK, etc.

Will have certain areas will news feeds will be displayed.


Submit examples & descriptions of your prior Drupal projects/sites. Provide any references that can vouch for your experience and reliability. Also, we're not cheapskates - we know the value of a fast experienced developer. However, we are very cost aware, so bid at a rate that will benefit both of us, and we could strike a long-term working relationship.

** Also plase note the main modules you plan to use/have used in previous projects to accomplish the same.
