This project was worked on by two different companies. The first didn't finish the job, the second decided that they wanted to control when the project was delivered and extort money from me in the process. They, in turn. infected the web page with malicious code and the site was banned by Google before it was even finished. The second was a firm in India and was supposed to be reputable and very good.. I got nothing but hassles and excuses. The First coder was Canadian and he did most of the initial work. If you would like the initial database and Joomla template. I have it. The firm in India said the coding was bad. The same people that infected the website with malicious code. This project STAYS here!! I am protected at Rent a coder. No more rip offs!! No more extortion.. No more viruses. I need this done.. Actually it should have been done a year ago.
I was going to take some courses on Joomla and php because I do know some web design and know HTML.. With the money I've lost already, I could have. It would have been finished 8 months ago as well.
Will be Developed From a Photoshop PSD The project you will be working on is an internet radio station Joomla Template that communicates with page updates via my local pc' s ftp and sends a .txt file update upon every song change. Joomla reads the .txt file and changes the song information on the home page. The changes are: CD cover artwork, track or song, artist, album (what album the song came from), Buy link ([url removed, login to view]), and a forum discussion link via forum bot (bot needs to be developed). The software we use to broadcast is “Station Playlist Studio??. All of the parameters that are used for web page updates are located in the options tab within the software. If you download the trial you will see sample pages to work from. The concept of the site is like an online visual magazine, we will be using 2 instances of sobi2 and have three types of members at the website. General member can browse, post at the forum, and send messages to other members,artists, and businesses within the site. The first instance of sobi2 will be a totally free version for jazz artists only.. The second instance of sobi2 is an entirely paid business section which local businesses will purchase directory advertising. Every page will have a different background image and background image “fades?? in. These images must be easily updated by me via the Joomla back-end. A custom option for page background upload should be included in the back-end coding if that can be done. I have a photoshop psd which the website was designed from originally.
**The site concept was inspired by two websites..**
Layout and design inspired by [url removed, login to view]
Background fade in inspired by:[url removed, login to view]
**Weather module** will use the MSN weather output for Tampa Florida US. I have the output codes. And will send them along with the proper files and updated images with proper naming. I would like weather on all pages or the option to select which pages to include the module.
**SOBI 2** There will be TWO instances of sobi2 installed one instance for paid business advertising and one instance for Jazz artists listings and those are free of charge.
**AMBRA** Subscriptions Manages the website subscriptions. Must be fully integrated.
**AMIGOS** - Affiliate Tracking Amigos keeps track of affiliates and sales peoples clients, sales and commissions earned and payments to them.
**Forum Bot** This is very important because the bot must be hard coded from scratch. The forum bot will create a forum poll topic for each track played. The bot will check to see if there is already a topic in the forum, if not then create one. A hyperlink will be displayed with the song information on the home page and the PLAYLIST page linking to the forum topic (title : rate and discuss this track)
Agora: ** Agora will probably be the best forum to use because it has POLLS already integrated into the system without hacking the source code. If you are having trouble “fitting?? the forum into the actual page then just let the forum open in a new window or tab for ease of use. If you can make the forum work into the existing layout without compromising the design, then go for it.
**Page Orientation** This is very specific to the design as the design is slightly “off?? center with most content left orientated within the browser. This is deliberate and is a design concept and nothing more. What has been done to date is not correct as far as orientation. The closest to look at would be to simply look at the picture above.
Basic Layout: ** The layout above is how the template home page should look with a sample background image and all modules up and running. As you can see the website is “off center?? and it's deliberate. The template will be an online magazine. I want the functionality and look to be EXACTLY as shown. The width of the site is 1280px Browsers with a width less than 1280px will have to scroll to the right to see more. Browsers wider than 1280px will center the page. orientation of content will stay off center.
**Home Page:** The home page has the data uploaded from station playlist studio displayed. As you can see in the image there is a CD cover.. artist: content album: content song: content Buy CD: buy link Download: future use and the last link “rate and discuss this track?? which is the link to the **forum bot entry for the track.
Up next** is the next track that will be played and current listeners is the current listeners tuned in.
All of this information is available within the uploaded .txt file that is uploaded from my local pc using station playlist studio to the web site via ftp upon each song change. Pages will have to have auto refresh every 30-45 seconds to see changes.
**Playlist page** is the last 10 tracks played, with the same information. I hope this explains the concept of the template.
Music Pages** There will be music information displayed on multiple pages. Home page has the information as you see it.
Playlist page** contains the same information as the home page only smaller images and displays the last 10 songs played
Daily Playlist** shows all the track information in a list format only. No CD art all other information will be displayed. The list will show every track played for each day and the time played. The list will display the previous 7 days. Example page for content layout: [url removed, login to view]
