What I need is a custom made blog system with the features listed below. Modifying an exisiting blog script is fine as long as it has the same features I outlines below.
-Option to turn categories off or on.
-Option to allow users to submit their own subjects for flaming.
-Set Featured Flame subject. (featured will display in a left or right column)
-modify users account
-Email all users
-Ability to control welcome emails, suspended emails etc.
-ability to edit all submitted subjects (images, description etc), also delete through the front end as well as the backend.
-Report image (offensive, not allowed to use etc)
-Register to flame a subject.
-Show how many times a subject has been viewed, show how many times a subject has been commented show how many times it was flamed. show how many times subject has been defended.
-Show comments in a forum kind of display with a controlled amount of comments per page.
-Top Ten subjects, listed in order of how many times it was commented.
-If categories are selected, when clicking a category, will display top ten commented subjects for that category only.
-Uploading an image is optional, if no image uploaded, will display a default image.
-Send a message to a particular user.
-Option to start a poll when creating a subject. (just like phpbb forums has)
-Comments should show who posted it, the time it was posted and how many comments that user has made (just like the features)
-Comments should be displayed 16 per page, would like pre-set ads to be displayed after every 8th post.
-When commenting on a subject, user must select either they are flaming the subject, neutral or defending the subject. Flamed comments will have a red border, defended commented will have a blue border, neutral comments will be in grey. Or maybe the text can be these colors instead, whatever looks better, blue, red and grey text would all be readable.
-SEO friendly URLS's. So if the subject is "Is barry bonds guilty? it should be something like [url removed, login to view]
-Add subject to favorites.
-Add User to favorites.
-"Flame This" will be defaulted as a favorite for all accounts and will be the main account i.e site admin.
-Modify information (password, address, email etc)
-View flamed threads (shows the last 10 subjects a user has commented on)
-show stats (You have made xxx amount of comments and you have commented on xxx amount of subjects.)
