I know this is long, but I don't like surprises - neither do programmers :) Use the word FURG" so I know you read this. I would like someone to use a script for this, then make changes as I need.
I want a social network for my industry of about 10,000 people. It should look and work mostly like FB. This can be done in PHP or something else - you tell ME what script I should use and why I should use it. Here are the two I looked into most -
PHPSOCIAL - Seems to have a lot of the things I want, but the demo starts with very little and you have to build everything from scratch, so it was hard to tell.
iSocial - Looks better in terms of having all the bells and whistles in the demo. I uploaded a video and heard the audio, but no image. Other than that, it seemed to work well.
So I want all the features in the iSocial demo (but I want the videos to play when uploaded, of course). I need to be able to change the color scheme and add my own branding, of course.
And I want 3 other features added.
1 - In the header I want text to say "The Brief Machine" and have a text box (like a search box). This is a translation machine. They enter English and a list of translations show up (in a box or list or however works best, but it should stay on the page they are on). I have the whole list of translations in a database. It is listed like this -
(The number of the word - not needed), 'English word', "TRANSLATION', (NUMBER),
(163185, 'demotions', 'TKPHO-EGZ', 1),
(163186, 'demotions', 'TKPHO-GSZ', 1),
(163187, 'demotivate', 'DE/MOEVT', 1),
So if the user typed in demotions, they would see 2 results;
There are about 800,000 definitions in the database, and some words have as many as 50 translations.
2 - User Profile - When the user signs up, they must out the following -
First Name (must be name you go by)
Last Name (must be name you go by)
Choose a Password
About Me (optional)
Where do you fit within the steno community?
You may select up to 3 choices below. You MUST select at least one. You will be able to update your selections in your profile if they change. If you are a student, you MUST select a speed range as one of your choices. These will appear alongside your name so users know your experience in the field.
O Theory Student
O 60-100 WPM
O 110-150 WPM
O 160-200 WPM
O 210+ WPM
O Court Reporter
O Deposition Reporter
O CART Provider
O Agency Owner
O School/Program Owner
(check box) I agree that I am a part of the court reporting community – steno or voice (no digital) – and that I am representing my identity with accuracy.
And a captcha of some kind.
VERY IMPORTANT - Users then verify with an email link - then I have to activate their account once they verify it in admin.
3 - Those choices they selected when signing up MUST APPEAR on their profile. It would appear under Status somewhere that's easy to find - they About section. They cannot hide this feature, but they can change it to other selections (up to 3) once they are members.
I guess we'll start there. And I am not saying we must use one of those two scripts - I am open to others, but they MUST look/act like FB. I want it to be familiar to the new user.
I will select someone based on communication, reviews and bid amount. Thanks!
FURG I would recommend using WoWonder. I also have the licensed file from Codecanyon, so you won't have to purchase it as well Message me to discuss further, Regards, Rinku K.
