Basically, I need a fully functional forum website. I want it's layout to be similar to the following website:
[url removed, login to view]
No worries about the Chinese language; actually forum content will be modified by myself.
1. Links all working.
2. Forum in fully functional condition; able to post new threads/replies.
3. Individual users able to register/log in with no issues.
4. Able to customize avatars,
5. Private Message / Visitor Message functionality
6. Thread Subscription
7. User Control Panel - ability to change passwords, forum signature,
8. Administrator Control - ability to modify or delete reply or thread content
9. Each post by an individual showing their post count, avatar, etc.
10. Extra features like the ability to give/take away reputation ("rep" points displayed with each post) and able to rate each thread.
11. Any other elements which contributes to overall forum functionality and fluid/ease of navigation I may have missed.
Also, leaving room for the banners which will be displayed on the left/right side of the site and top/ bottom of the site.
My Main Questions:
1. Approximately, how long will a project like this take to complete?
2. Price range?
3. What types of computer knowledge is required for this type of project with all of the said features wanted (SQL, PHP, etc.)?
