We're a small development firm who needs assistance with at least one CMS implementation, possibly more. Unfortunately, we are unable (at present) to endure a learning curve. We need a developer to provide pricing for install on our server and integration with our CSS design (or a closely aligned preformatted) template.
First, we need to be sure the appropriate CMS can be installed at our shared web host. ([url removed, login to view]) We already have multiple subdomains with MySQL databases and they're functioning fine. (these include WP, Xoops, ModX.) The ideal CMS would be Web 2.0 (CSS and Ajax) compliant. Please PM if you want to discuss CMS criteria.
Regarding the CMS install and implementation, we need the following:
Install the CMS (and appropriate modules) at our web host. Although we have investigated Drupal, WebGUI, Xoops, and others, we will consider open source CMS’s that offer the capabilities outlined within this post.
The site in question will be subscription based and will require that the following features/modules be installed:
Limited access for "trial member" subscribers:
Job Postings / Classified (limited view, limited post, anon e.g craigslist - limited duration)
Matrix Comparison System (subscription plans)
Articles (limited view)
Complete access for "full member" subscribers:
Job Posting / Classified Ad System
Project Management (if module exists)
Articles (full view, no post)
Syndicated News (including aggregation)
Dashboard (My Page)
Surveys (respond only)
Polls (respond only)
Self-Grading Tests (respond only)
Banner Ad Mgmt.
Payment platform (Paypal, Amazon, Google)
Web Log (blog)
Web Services Front End
SQL Report (Drill down and hierarchical queries enabled)
We will be able to supply (or modify an existing) CSS and html template for the site theme. Once installed, we can participate with the developer to assist with configuration options where necessary and may need assistance with troubleshooting.
If interested, please provide pricing for install and integration as outlined above.
