I need a clone of [url removed, login to view] - a news community forum which creates forum topics from popular news headlines. the site also allows user-generated forums.
According to the website, topix "aggregates news from thousands of sources, create thousands of topically driven news web pages and populate each of those pages with only news about that particular topic."
What I want is a variation of this site. The script should monitor news sites that are controlled by me thru an admin panel. These sites will be monitored for news headlines based on niche-related keywords. Selected headlines will be scraped and used as forum topics in related news forums automatically.
It is important that the entire script be controlled thru a user-friendly admin panel.
There should also be adequate advertising control for banners/adsense code which should appear on every page.
The site also has a section for membership for users to enter their personal information and upload avatars/pictures. The admin panel should also control this user-database and have the ability to send emails to all users.
More details can be discussed with the winning bidder.
