I own an established web design / development firm in Denver, CO. We ahve been working with a drupal developer that we found on this site over 4 years ago. Until now (have not heard from him in 5 days) he has consistently provided great service to us, and we have given him an average of 1 job per week, his user name is "lukeyan". He left us in a bad situation, we have 2 projects that need to be finished, and a new one that I would like to offer you as a trial run working together. If it works out I can provide you with a steady flow of Drupal work.
I do all the design mockups here, and i would be providing you with the graphics for any project I send you.
The first job I would like you to quote me on is a "Craigslist.org" functionality clone site built in Drupal. This site is based on local classifieds for pets. there are about 15 categories, all pet related. If you create the functionality, I can add the categories if that is easier for you
The major difference is that there will be no "sub sites" meaning it will only be for the state of Colorado.
1.) Users will need to create accounts in order to post a classified ad.
2.) We will NOT need to attach a phone number to ads like CL currently does, all that is necessary is that a user clicks a link in an email confirmation that the system sends in order for the ad to go live.
4.) The site design I provide, will be as simple as craigslist.org.
5.) We do NOT need the event calendar that CL uses.
6.) We do NOT need any internal java mail functions, but we do need the choice of the "anonymous" mail feature that CL uses. If the user chooses to hide his email address. You can let me know the options regarding this.
The main features will be:
Ability to post ads, and system sends out an email to the user to confirm the listing, and admin should have the ability to to approve the ad before going live, so it should go in a queue.
Drupal should create user accounts where users can manage thier postings. (delete, re-post, and etc.)
The attached is very similar to the inner page mockup I will be providing, so you can price that in as well. The home page mockup will simply be icons that I will provide that will lead the the categories. So the home page will not display any dynamic data, just icons that i will create. Let me know what else you need to know and I will answer as best I can.
