-Maybe use a current jomsocial template if possible?
-Want the social aspect of the site to be secondary, meaning the template/site doesn't look/appear like a social site.
-Similar idea to [url removed, login to view] but more business/finance based.
-Basic Idea is the user submits an article 150-500 words, no matter how raw or unedited. The admin then goes in and edits for grammer/spelling/etc and also ads in relevant keywords and ad/affiliate links into the article without actually changing the content of the article.
-Want the site to be designed so the visitor/user gets drawn towards the “meat” of the site (articles, questions, comments, news feeds)
-Need to easily access Clickbank and Commission Junction ads as these will be how the site gets money.
-Very user friendly, easy to get from place to place without getting lost within the site.
-Need a basic logo/brand made up...something with a dollar sign in it
-Must use Joomla and jomsocial (already have it)
-use free joomla extensions anywhere possible
-The articles must be SEO friendly
-The rest of the website needs to be as SEO friendly as possible
-FTP/admin info provided to work directly
-imbed google analytics
-Be able to navigate easily to almost anywhere on the site from tabs and menus.
-Ability to go to a catchy looking article title or popular article from the front page
-Must be able to see Clickbank ad code on page load (right side of page?)
-Want a sign-up form in the center of page with a list of what can be done upon signing up...very similar to indianbee.com.
-Show facebook connect icon and let visitors know they can login via facebook.
-Show recent activity (or just recent posts/articles?) down at the bottom of the front page like [url removed, login to view]
When signing up:
-1st page very generic like facebook or [url removed, login to view] but need sign up form like [url removed, login to view] with birthday and male/female boxes. Also need a checkbox for users to automatically subscribe to RSS feed from site
-integrate an EASY TO READ CAPTCHA upon sign up
-ability to create groups
-ability to rate and comment on articles

-Only registered users can make comments or give feedback...if user decides to interact with the site, they must upload a picture or avatar before they can leave comments/feedback...post an article etc.
-users must submit article and it can post immediately, but it needs to be sent to the admin for editing.
-Use top tabs similar to how the site is now. (Celebrities/Experience Builder/Funny/investing/Start a business)
-Members who need help (either on top tabs or side menu)
-can post questions or post a need for a solution IE- help building a website
-Guests/vistors/lookers have ability to look around the entire site and read all of the articles.
-ability to sort articles by rating, number of times read, number of comments (within each section or for the whole site, similar to [url removed, login to view])
-Need social bookmarking aspect...with Tip'd being seen on the 1st part of the article (how it is currently on the site with Digg)
-(on the right side of the page?) every article must be able to load a different Clickbank ad or Commission Junction ad. Would also like an ad at the bottom of the article before the comments start.
-Users need to be able to integrate pictures, sound, and youtube/video into the articles.
-RSS feeds are very important. Users and nonusers need to be able to subscribe to any given section feed or site as a whole feed from any page.
