*****budget set to highest in order to encourage bidding... I do have a figure in mind and it is nowhere near $5k!!****
I'm going to start a "business compare service" aimed at our local area and need someone to do the website.
I don't mind a "template" being used as long as it can be customised to do as i want.
My customers (i.e. the business' that are paying to advertise on the site) should be able to log in using their own password and username which they chose during a sign up page (pretty simple so far huh!) and they can also update their details, such as prices for service, opening times, number of employees... etc etc. the updates they make can be done on a profile type page, so i guess it would be a similar format to many social networking sites... only nothing like a social networking site, just a similar concept!
they can upload several pictures if they wish and i would also like them to have a facility whereby they can pulicise upcoming events... for instance there may be a scrolling banner of some sort which says "next tuesday we are having 20% off"... or whatever. all of this can be updated from the customers main profile page, which is accessed via the sign-in.
The site should also have a search facility which should be broken down into areas of the country. so on the home page we would have all the counties of the UK (states if you're an american!) and then once you have chosen your state up pops another page with all the towns and cities within that county/state. and once you have chosen your town you get all the business' within that town. Obviously if you can think of an easier way of doing it then i'm open to suggestions.
once you get to the page where you can see all the business in your chosen town, i wanted each business to have an image, and a small "comparisson box" (same questions in box for each business, only the image changes and the results within the box)... the website user can then quickly scan the business'... see which one they want and click the business, which will take them through to that particular business' "profile" page.
I would also want browsers to sign up to the site, but only via a very simple registration form. basic details needed (name, age, telephone number, address) and obviously the user would also have a sign-in and password.
Fianlly i would like a forum installed on the board, I am ok with the phpbb style forum, which i could do myself if needs be as i have done it before... but if anyone has a site that has one incorporated within the price and design then thats even better.
right... i think that's it.
It sounds much more complicated than it actually is and i know that if i did enough searching/reading then i would be able to find a script that "did the job".. but i dont have the time at the minute.
thanks in advance for your help.
****site is aimed primarily at young parents....... lots of bright colours etc...****
