PROJECT PURPOSE :
For my website, I currently control the headers, footers, sidebars and menus dynamically in PHP with CSS styles. What I need is the ability to intelligently and automatically populate the body of pages with dynamic database driven content via PHP.
Essentially, I require a simple PHP Content Management System (CMS) with some fairly simple specific customisation which I will specify in detail to the top bidders. The output of this CMS will be search engine friendly content pages and customer friendly URLs.
KEY REQUIREMENTS :
- The PHP CMS provided must be copyright to us and royalty free,
so that we can use it at will for no additional across one
or more sites.
- The output HTML pages must be fully readable by all the
major Search Engines and friendly to them. The URLs of
individual pages must be customer friendly, irrespective
of how deep they are in the page structure. Mod-rewrite etc;
PLEASE NOTE : I run a number of websites and am looking to develop an ongoing relationship with a high quality professional programmer(s). Please also see the other system I am looking for bids on Please note titled REAL ESTATE FBSO and AGENTS SYSTEM ... combined bids for this CMS system and the FBSO system preferred.
--- ENDS ---
- CMS FUNCTIONS REQUIRED (MINIMUM) :
i) TEMPLATE DRIVEN : The system must be Template driven such
that a template can be defined for Standard, Home and other
page types enabling the automated insertion of dynamic
variables such as title retrieved from the CMS database etc
Furthermore all screen layouts within the templates must be
CSS based and to CSS layouts we shall specify.
ii)CUSTOMISABLE INPUT FIELDS : We will require specific
customised input fields for titles, headers, keywords,
metatags and one or two other fields.
iii)HTML FULLY EDITABLE : The HTML parts of each individual
page must be totally editable within the CMS system so
that we can change the specific content at each individual
iv) PHP INCLUDES : It must be possible to specify at each
individual page level the Menu files, header files and footer
files to be included. The names of the specific files to
be included will be stored in the CMS for each individual page.
v) LINK MANAGEMENT : As with any CMS system the CMS must
automatically handle the cross linking within the site of
all pages created.
vi)EXTERNAL LINK MANAGEMENT : Although it may be outside the
CMS we will need a PHP facility to allow external parties
to add their links automatically, with an administration
module which checks the external page to ensure the reciprocal
link is in place, and allow us to APPROVE or DISAPPROVE link
vii)PAGE VOLUME : the CMS should have the capability of handling
many hundreds and even thousands of pages without degrading.
viii)SITE MAP: An automated Google sitemap in their new xml
standard is required to ensure our sitemap is always up to
date and search engine friendly.
