The site needs to be done in about 10 days. I'm willing to pay $300-$400
This project is referall site that basically emails your friends to be your referrals for them. By referrals I mean job references. The sites design will already be made and each page on the site will look almost identical to the home page, just different text.
The site can be made in Joomla or Drupal. I wanted to do it in Joomla, but my only concern is Joomla is for small businesses, and if it expands and get's big Joomla may not be adequate.
My company has done many CMS sites, I know what work you will have to do.
Core Functions and PAGES:
Users can view the site. There are two levels of a reference. The
short version is viewable the full version is not unless registered.
The processes for a reference are:
If you've sent out a request -- a non user receives an email with a
direct link to write it. They do have to register, but are placed on a
page that allows them to enter a user/pass in addition to the
reference information. The person being referenced has to approve the
reference. On the sidebar it says "Approve Reference" Then it becomes
a reference on your References page. An option is to "hide" a
particular reference at anytime. There is no "delete".
The client bought a Octazen program in PHP... allowing
users to choose all of their webmail contacts from Gmail, AOL,
Hotmail, Outlook etc.... It's sort of how twitter is how you enter in
your email login and password and it scrolls through your contact and
saves them (I guess).
-write a reference
Users can write a reference for a user or non user. One of the fields
is predictive email. Users who are not a reveral user will get an
email. Users who are will get a Reference request.
-request a reference
Asking a user or non user to write a reference for you.
Reference Page: all users can view a short version of the reference
which is: photo, name, and how they know user. Registered users can
see full version, which is on [url removed, login to view] --- it's all the questions
and fields there.
Sidebar with Reference data as in Beta: Request a reference, write a
Foot in the Door
Give / Get
In the center:
What Do You Do -- users input their occupation in a dynamic field
Client History: users input the following information into dynamic
fields... users can change this on their profile pages for their own
"client history" similar to facebook's status update.
Users can set up an appointment to chat with any user. User can input
email or user name into predictive field. Their profile page, the
sidebar and the reference page all have the "set meeting" button. We
were using Google Calendar... Once you set an appointment, both users
receive notification. A Number placed next to the "meeting". The
recieving user can change the date of the meeting.
The one challenging aspect here is Meetings are directly connected to
CHAT. Once a user sets a meeting
with another user they are added to their CHAT. It's like being
friended or added as a follower.... there is no approval process for
being added. I don’t know if there is a free module out there that does
this. I know there are free chat downloads out there. I'm willing to
buy one if you can find one that is perfect for this requirment.
We'll add options for how many references, requests, chats and more a
user can receive after the core functions are built.
internal email... how users can connect with each other. A number
placed next to the Inbox (1) upon receiving a message.
Search for user by name, email, user name, location
