Help with site neededI posted this a couple of weeks ago:
I am starting a web site for professionals in a certain venue. I need a site, PHP or otherwise, that will ask specific questions during sign up, require admin approval, and post an ad in a certain category, and will be customizable only by admin for communications preferences.
I am trying to find a site that would be a good example, but I cannot. Also, the site has to be free, as my start up budget is less than $500.
Does anyone know of a forum add-on (PHPBB, for example) or WordPress?
Someone suggested a real estate template. None of the real estate, classifieds, or job board templates I have tested will work for my needs, either Wordpress or Joomla. Here is what I am looking for.
A site that displays ad content (much like a classifieds site or real estate site) pertaining to business information (certain information that I could select in administration).
The sites that are similar in STYLE & SETUP to my needs are:
Ads view: http://canada.businessesforsale.com/canadian/search/Distribution-Businesses-for-sale
Example ad: http://canada.businessesforsale.com/canadian/North-America-Wholesale-Distribution-And-Direct-Sale-Opportunity-For-Sale.aspx
Ads view: http://www.businessexchange.ca/franchise-opportunities-franchises.html
Example ad: http://www.businessexchange.ca/franchise-opportunities/healthcare-senior-care-franchises/always-best-care-senior-services-franchise-|5.html
A site that allows searching using dropdown boxes that I could customize.
A site that allows me to set up different client accounts. Free, Standard, and Premium, like http://www.alibaba.com/, http://www.dhgate.com.
-The accounts should dictate how each client may use the site to edit their ads, communicate with others, etc., if their account type allows them to.
I was considering and messing around with various bulletin boards for the permissions, but they just look unprofessional on a site like this.
My budget has almost been spent, and I have NO CASH for the site. Therefore, I have to put in elbow grease. I am willing to learn some PHP, I know some CSS and HTML. Once this site is going, I will be absolutely flooded with clients. A short time later I could start hiring people to take care of technical things for me, but right now, I am all I have. That's why I am "picking your brains" for wisdom.
If anyone knows of scripts, I am willing to write my own site. I just need the ease of being able to post with a site like a bulletin board, Wordpress, or Joomla
Re: Help with site neededwell that's the good decision to learn the php your self.
1st do learn basic of php and very good starting point is the php tutorials available on html.net.
After that install and use wordpress because its the easiest blog/cms system on internet.
and make your own decisions about clients etc i would recommend you to out source all your clients work on websites like
odesk,elance,etc and earn money(commission) out of it.
