Help finish a new Wordpress site: [url removed, login to view] - using template Magazine 8: [url removed, login to view]
Need the following new pages/functions/pluggins added to the website:
1) Newletter Signup and auto email sender and template plugin (looking for one that will send top 10 stories every day - list of stuff from the categories subscriber follows)
2) Add a Voting feature (thumbs up or thumbs down, or flag) on each article so that readers can rank best stories for Newsletter and front page.
3) Design - Contributor page and form submission - so that users can contribute content and categorize and tag. uses existing categories but form needs additional fields for additional tag promtors "election name" "state name", "candidate name" that are not in category structure
4) Design - Contributor/Subscriber profile pages need some extra fields (school name and state name)- lists articles submitted by Contributor - subscribers can follow contributors
Strongly prefer a wordpress expert that knows the template, buddy press and most wordpress plugins in order to get the most functionality with the least work and drag on the site. Will need to make sure everything is optimized and secure. I have already purchased plugins for both but would be open to further recommendations so the site is faster.
