Alright, what I need is an extremley professional looking site, should be shiny, but not too intense. This design should include a front page, as well as a download area, vb forums (ie you'll have to make it vb ready), and a text area (for articles). Now for the coding part: You need to make the forum and article/download area's only accessable by members, who will have to pay a set starting amount as well as a small fee per month (done through paypal). If they cancel the paypal subscription, their account should be canceled (should leave them members until they would have paid the next fee). Fees should be able to be changed from an admin cp (where I can add and delete accounts arbitrarily, as well as make special discounts or coupons). This needs a full affiliate management system that tracks where visitors come from, and credits the corresponding account (small percentage at startup, as well as a small percentage per recurring payment). Needs to have a member download area where members can download software etc, as well as an article area that has categories for the articles. Heres the har part, those articles should be tied into vb, so I can write an article in the forums, then go into the admin cp and enter in the forum post number into a form, as well as the category I want to put it in, and it puts it there. Editing it in post/forums should change it in the article format. I should also be able to move and delete articles. Also, if someone else writes an article on the forums, the form I use to make it in article format should have a box where I can credit the member $x, as well as change their custom title etc (if they already have one, it should show up in the box, and be editable). So, someone submits an article, I like it, I go the admin cp, put int he post number, select the category, credit their account, and change their title. Submit, and its all done, the article is in the category, the link to the article is placed in a 'Newest 5 articles box', and they have money in their forums account. Then, the money these people have in their accounts should be avaliable to them to either redeem (which, when they press a redeem button, puts a requesting payment notification in the admin cp, with a link to a paypal page with everything filled in, just waiting for my password and me clicking the confirm payment button. Then it should deduct whatever I paid them from their acocunt.
