Lyme disease treatment reviews site
I would like to create a site where Lyme disease patients can go to review the supplements they are taking and the treatments they are using. The site will be an ongoing work in progress so I need a developer who can work with me up front to set it up, and also be available as the months go on for "touch up" work and questions. The site is sort of a cross between social media, a discussion forum, and a plain reviews site. Let me explain. Users will be able to log in, have their own profile page, and comment on (as well as give star ratings to) various treatments. They will also be able to list a treatment if that treatment isn't already listed. Here's where it gets interesting, though. The site needs to have more functionality than many similar sites. - Each user profile needs to list all of the supplements or treatments they've ever commented on. This is accomplished by "tagging" each one with a unique tag that moderators can approve to avoid duplicates. - Users need to be able to subscribe to each other - so, if one user likes another's comments, he or she can sign up to be notified if the other user posts anything on the site. - Users need to be able to subscribe by email to any supplement or treatment, identified with a unique tag for that given supplement or treatment. -All supplements or treatments will have their own unique tag, and when a user clicks on that tag, it will take them to a "homepage" of sorts for that particular supplement or treatment. So, for example, if they clicked on "Vitamin C", they would go to Vitamin C's homepage, where they could read all about Vitamin C with the following content: Most recent user reviews of the treatment, total star rating, User generated articles or posts on the treatment, an RSS news feed for the treatment which brings in news stories from around the web, etc. - Likewise, all treatments can also be tagged with various symptoms that people are finding success using the treatment for, and same as above paragraph, when they click on that symptom, it will take them to a "homepage" for that symptom which will list lots of dynamic information for that symptom. -Also, the site will need to have advanced search capability so that when a user searches for a product, symptom, disease, etc., the results can be sorted and filtered. These are key points - SORTING and FILTERING. Please see typical eBay search results for examples of sorting and filtering. You can sort on eBay by price, end date, etc., and you can filter by price range, "buy it now" availability, etc. Again, my site needs to be able to view, sort, and organize data in many unique ways, so my developer needs to be very versed in databases. IN SUMMARY: the project will require a few template pages (such as a template for user profile, a template for symptoms, a template for treatments, and a template for sub-diseases (Lyme disease is comprised of many sub-diseases)). Each template will be dynamic and pull information in from databases where all of this data is stored. To get your mind around what I'm trying to accomplish, picture a typical internet chat group or discussion forum, with a lot of added functionality and interconnectedness. I don't think it is possible to use a pre-packaged forum software for this because of all the customization. A site which is VERY MUCH like what I'm trying to do is seekingalpha.com, but seeking alpha is for stock market investing. Still, if you read on this site and eventually get to user profile pages, you'll see all the interconnectedness and dynamic pages. Except with Seeking Alpha, the topic is stocks and the tags are stock symbols, not medical treatments. Lastly, this project needs to be flexible and I need communication with my developer as things change and as the project may morph into different characteristics. I'm running out of characters to type here, I will try uploading more instructions and I'm also available to answer questions. Keywords: Web Programming
