The website is required to be template driven, with table fields that are displayed through the template. We are to work on the design aspect and only the back end code is required.
The website is to be a consumer information site where customers join and post information about services and companies.
The website is to have free registration for visitors, but they will be required to add credit to an account within the website to view any business information. It is to cost the customer 50 cents per view. Information/feedback on businesses is free to post. The feedback system for businesses is also to have a “five star” rating system.
The website is to be free for the first 5,000 and charges will only commence after this number of users has been reached.
There is also to be a membership option for clubs and organizations to have advertising facilities – this will be free to the first 30-50 and thereafter a charge will be enacted.
The database should be searchable by area and categories of business. It should also contain log in areas for users which store their registration details.
My client would also like a back-end administration panel which would permit him to delete inappropriate posts, block users and make minor changes to the website, such as billing.
Basically the website is intended to be similar to [url removed, login to view] but to deal with the sale of information of businesses and not goods. All scripting needs to be done in PHP.
