I posted this in medium projects as well. I am really not sure what size project this would be and would like a little more information from you experts as well as someone who is willing to give me a quote and take on the work.
There are in total about 15 pages.
5 Admin area pages where we can add, edit, delete content. This area needs to be secured. We are considering having an image upload area as well, but would need to discuss this with the programmer to see what is possible.
About 5-10 pages that display content.
We need forms that will write to a DB. These forms will also add a line of code to a couple of other parts such as "Latest Trips" where our 5 most recent trips will be listed with a link to that specific trip page. As well it will post a simple line of code to an XML file.
Additionally we need someone to setup a forum for us that fits into our sites design.
I have wireframes completed, and the design is 100% complete. We just need someone to put the pieces together and make it work.
I prefer either PHP or ASP.NET for programming languages, and am willing to use pre-written scripts if it makes it faster and/or cheaper than doing it yourself. My only requirement is that the secure area is very secure, and the entire site is stable and all code used is being used legally.
This current site is just a personal site for me and my wife and we are opening our travels to the public to view and discuss if anyone actually cares. We have some future plans which include personalized travel logs for users, as well as a store that we are considering. If all goes well, we would continue to pay the programmer for their work, as well as offer a percentage of whatever profit we make when we reach a decent size.
Please send me your thoughts on what this would cost, and if you would like to take this project please let me know. Also if there is any other information that would help, please feel free to ask me.
