Project Name: JOOMLA-based online games website
Project Description: I would like to get a website called [url removed, login to view] developed in JOOMLA. The purpose of this website is to allow visitors to play free online Flash, Java and Shockwave games in their browsers. The homepage (and other pages) will also show Google ads, banner ads, and other ads. A very rough idea of the layout of the homepage is shown in the Powerpoint file samplepage.ppt. The first job of the website developer is to create a nice template in Joomla that provides much better visual appeal than what is ther in the PPT file but still retain the general layout and functionality. Once the template has been developed and approved, the website developer must create the menus and “hooks” for the games content. Each game will show on the homepage as a small clickable image along with a 2 to 3 line description. Games are categorized according to whether they are Action Games, Puzzle Games, etc and are shown in a box in their respective categories. Furthermore, there will be a category called Featured Games, which contains games that I as the website owner wish to feature to my audience for whatever reason I choose. These games will also belong in their “regular” categores (eg Action, Puzzle, etc) but I should be also allowed to feature any game I want. Furthermore, I’d like to keep track of the number of times each games in my catalog has been played, because I will also have a category called “Most Popular Games” that will showcase games that people seem to play more than others. Finally, I want to allow players to login to the system so that they can personalize their view of the games page. For example, when player “brad123” logs in, the website homepage that he views will now have a category called “brad123’s Favorites”, which shows the games that brad123 has added to his list of favorites for easy access. (The first time brad123 registers, this box will be empty and should show something like “No favorites yet”. There should be an edit button to manage this list of favorites.
When a player clicks on a game on the homepage, it should take the player to a page for that game, s shown in the PPT file.
There should also be a Search box that allows players to search for games on this site. It should do a simple keyword search on the game names (and maybe even game descriptions if that is feasible).
There should be “Tell a Friend” functionality that allows players to send an email to another email address to notify the recipient that this site exists.
On the right hand side of the homepage are a couple of advertsing-based items. I’d like a Google search bar, Ads by Google (Adsense), and a box for some affiliate links.
