I am interested in creating game development service and portal for independent game developers. This web site will utilize the CMS Joomla and possibly the forum system PHPbb. An example of what I am looking for can be found here: [url removed, login to view]
I have limited experience using Joomla, however, I am only looking for help finding, installing and configuring the necessary extensions, modules or plug-ins that will reach the desired effects. Further site maintenance and design is not necessary.
The site should provide the following services to users:
- ability to create, host and display individual projects/games/applications with the ability to:
+ upload the game file to the site server
+ upload & display a representative image and screen shots
+ maintain a blog of updates and or response to comments
+ allow editing of game profile and management
- ability to browse games by type, rating, popularity(downloads), genre, platform, etc.
- ability to comment on projects/games/applications
- ability to rate projects/games/applications
- individual profiles and forum access (either through integrated forum or bridged PHPbb)
- private messaging mailbox use
- upload and display additional content (music, graphics, pictures, etc.)
As I said above, I am interested in obtaining assistance from an experienced Joomla user who can fulfill these requirements and provide further advice. I have explored the possibilities of executing this web site with Joomla and have experimented with the extensions available.
Extensions currently in use:
- Community Builder
- Page & Item
