I run an invision power board for college students. I need a hack done to my board in such a way that it will server unlimited campus/schools with just our board.
If you don't know invision power board, check this link: http://forums.invisionpower.com. Please familiarize yourself.
My budget is about $100.
The problem: We have only one invision board, but want to serve several campues/schools with this one board.
What I need done: a mod where my users can switch campus/schools on the fly. After careful thought, I think the best way is to have a drop down menu near the top of the forum where they can select schools on the fly.
Example, a student comes on at UCLA, and they simply choose UCLA from the drop down menu and the board instantly changes to the ucla board. This is where the trick comes in: all of the users' posts only gets put into the ucla board.
This is the bulk of the mod. A few other minor things I'd like to add is when a user selects a campus, the campus name be shown in large font at the top of the forum to show which campus they are on. Also, a simple text field for users to add campus and have admins approve them.
Easy concept but a little tricky, but I think it's doable.
What the job requires: I will give you a copy of my board and you can work on that copy. PLEASE SET UP A TEST SITE/TEST BOARD FOR ME TO SEE YOUR PROGRESS.
