I currently have a website that is joomla 1.5 and right now it allows customers submit to have us create obituaries.
I would like to have a spot where we post the obituary with a easy form fill with info like name, obituary and picture and when I put in there name like John smith, I then can send the family to the url [url removed, login to view] smith where they can log-in in and view their family obituary plus upload photos, leave comments/guest book ( while leaving a comment have the ability to purchase animation flowers, candles, balloons, teddy bears, etc. to add to the comment), share stories area, also would like the ability for them to send private messages to others who have posted.
the attached photo will show the idea of how the obituary is posted and the tabs below are layed out. Guest book will be the tab its starts on and they can log in and post the comments on that. then the photo tab where others can view or post more photos. Stories tab would be for longer posting for thoughtful writing of friends and families.
Would love to hear your ideas and discuss what needs to be done.
Little more Detail......
I will need a place on the front end for the super admin to post the obituary using a simple form fill and one picture upload.
I need the posting to auto create a easy url based off the name of the diseased person (www.his-divineglory.com/johndoe) that way we can print that url on the flyers for family to visit.
Then on that obituary page I need three tabs below obituary. A picture is attached to the job posting for the idea. at front is the guest book where they say something small with there name.
Next tab is a place to view or upload pictures
the third tab is for larger storie for people to post or read.
Can only post if you are registered with the site.
Would like a "read more" for all large postings. kind of like facebooks.
And would like the people who post be able to send messages each other. the message would be sent to the email they registered with.
This site kind of has a simular idea.
