To display News RSS Feeds from across different newspapers and news wires from around the world, into different categories. If you have experience with such projects you will know what I mean.
I like "http://www.newsnow.co.uk" and therefore would expect for you to take inspiration the functionality of this website. I intend to provide the creative layout, therefore this bid is only for the functionality and programming, etc. However, I would be keen for your insight into layout if you have experience with creative web design (perhaps add to your price as well)
I also require the CMS to allow me access to everything including adding new RSS feeds, adding new categories, assigning each RSS feed a country where it originates from so when a news story appears from that feed the country flag will be displayed (similar to how stories are shown on [url removed, login to view]).
I need to know exactly how you plan on parsing the RSS feeds into categories, etc. Would categories be assigned certain keywords that a script would look for in the RSS feed, etc.
If I have 10,000 RSS feeds being used on the site, how will those 10,000 feeds be scanned to find headlines relating to “Barack Obama” and file them under the category: US>Politics>Barack Obama?
Headlines, once clicked, would open the story from the original website in a new window. However, I would like to explore the possibility of social bookmarking headlines displayed on my site so that they come to my site first and it shows the headline, etc. Also, being able to perhaps refer a certain headline to a friend.
All pages must be SEO friendly and the CMS should allow me access to modify certain items like page titles, description, tags, etc. I expect everything to be W3C Compliant.
