This project is to create a website built around the phpbb3 free forum software.
Basically what I am looking for is this:
The landing page will be a typical type layout.
You can view my current site [url removed, login to view] and see the layout will be similiar to this. My current landing page is utilizing joomla as the back bone and I want to go away from this as I need it to be more easily customized.
The type of functions I am going to want to have done with the phpbb3 is this.
I want to be able to post announcements within an announcements section within the forums and then a portion of this announcement would be displayed on the front page of the website as "News" it would also show a "read more" and "comments - showing the # of replies of this post" The front page would display the 4 recent posts.
If you review the current site you will see I have 3 blocks "Recent forums posts, recent downloads and recent matches" this is displaying the 5 most recent posts from the specific categories within the forums.
On the landing page I also want the registration / login for the forums to be available here as well as displaying the # of users and guest that are on the website.
The front page will also display server status as shown in the current website. This is a script that I will provide - I will show this script within PMB if you would like to see it.
I also require some type of media script that will allow me to play google videos on the front page of the website.
Landing page will also have a place for google ads.
phpbb3 mods that are needed.

Bottom line here is visit [url removed, login to view] I would like my site converted to have phpbb3 as the main backbone of it and other functionality being able to be easily modified either by a backend interface or something similiar. I am open to suggestions on how this can be done.
Please when bidding post examples of work having used phpbb2 and phpbb3
I will escrow through scriptlance.
