I am looking for a full service website coding service to fully integrate some features into my site design and prepare it for open web launch. My project consists of a relatively low traffic local community site that will consist of three major areas. I am hoping to capture a certain style, going for a very clean and minimalistic look and as the site is very small, should also flow well.
1. Index page - This page will consist of a blog style news section which select users will be able to post news articles. Arrange by date, newest first.
2. User forums - This will be the sites main focus, a user forum/message board. This area must be a strong messaging solution that cannot lack in features, i.e. quick reply area at the bottom of each thread (for users logged in browsing within a thread), advanced posting options (adjustable text size/color, "quote" reply buttons, post search, ability to upload and attach files, ability to embed images from external URLs in posts), 'lightbox' style image attachment viewing, mouseover thread preview, user avatars and signatures.
3. Affiliates area - This will be a simple partner sites area. Privileged users will have the ability to add lists to the partner list, small image thumbnail or logo with site name, URL, and short description.
Concept sketch: [url removed, login to view]
Site navigation will all be done by the text links found on the in the main navigation area exclusively. This menu should be easily editable as I plan on adding more content pages in the future. All external links should open a new window.
I will need a blank template content page for future use as well as an ad template in the designated area for future ad placement.
Banners and images will be provided by me as requested. I will provide additional minor details for each section throughout the production process.
Should run well in: IE 6, 7, 8; Firefox 3.5.3+; Safari 3+
These are the all of the elements I need incorporated into my project. I understand not all of my demands may not be realistic but I can compromise. I will be providing the site design and required graphics but other than upon completion this site soon be launch ready.
Present me a quote and analysis as well as full details on how/what code you plan on implementing to make this project as I have described it. All offers will be reviewed within 24 hours of submission as I am looking to get this started as soon as possible. The more I think you understand exactly what I'm going for the more likely you will be chosen.
My realistic budget is $200-$450
