Software is required to search for business-related news items in batches of 10 or 20 items. The search could be based on standard terms such as business services, accounting, management, etc, then providing the user with a box to enter the specific subject, which would be a niche within that category, or could be searched directly in a search box.
The software would need to find the batch of new news items, and show them to the user as the header and about the first 50-100 words of each article, plus the url of where the article was found. The user would then be given the option of accepting or rejecting the item. The user would then select the accepted items which would be loaded into the web page. Also, there needs to be the option to add a comment on the news of from 50-300 words.
The resulting text, etc, should be compatible with Wordpress, with the selected items being entered by the user in a wordpress post, and then comment added if desired in another post. (The actual website is not part of the project).
The users will not be experienced in working on computers, so the searched articles need to come up in a Wordpress blog, as mentioned. However, the interface needs to be user friendly. The software, once set up with the password, etc, would need to go into the blog where the articles could be posted, and extra text added. Or the extra text could be added before being transferred to the Wordpress page.
The tool needs to be able to search the internet for articles on the chosen subject.
These articles would need to be 'news', not old articles, but articles published in the past week. Then, when the article was found the tool would need to select the header (title) of the article plus the first 100-150 words plus the link to the full article. The articles would be placed in a window in the user interface.
The user would then approve or dismiss the articles. He would take the selected articles and enter them, as a file in a Wordpress blog attached to his site. There, he would have the option of writing an article to accompany these articles, which would all be saved on the website. Ideally, the page could be dragged and dropped into Wordpress, or could be actually a Wordpress blog.
It should run on a PC (Vista upwards) or could be on a Linux server, with an web interface if there were advantages.
As it is difficult to choose the best bidder for a project of this type, I may ask SELECTED bidders to bid for a part of the project, and then pay them for that. As this will be part of the actual project, whatever the successful bidder is paid for that mini-project, will be part of the total fee. (In other words, if you bid a total of $700, and $100 for the part of the project, you will be paid $100, and then $600 at the end of the project.
