I am a PHP developer for my company, however there are certain items that I can not do a great job on. I am looking for someone to build a good looking ajax registration page or form.
The form can be a popup that the user sees from every page once they click on register. Or if you'd rather use an actual page, that is fine too.
The form should first of all look professional and not like I threw some elements into a table really quickly. The form should also be informative, letting the user know things about the field they are trying to fill out, before they see the error message.
Perhaps you can use an onfocus event to trigger a tooltip that explains the requirements of that field. For instance the user should know that the Display name, will be made public so others will see their display name, and it cannot contain spaces or special characters other than an underscore.
We will use the following fields for the registration form:
Zipcode (if U.S.)
The Timezone helps us display the correct time to the user throughout the different areas of the site. Unless there is a better way, since larger websites like Facebook don't ask for your timezone (I don't think)
The Captcha will use words or phrases that I will provide. Sample phrases can be used for your development.
The display name should use ajax to let the user know in real-time if the display name is already taken, or if it is even valid. The best way would be to use jQuery once the user hasn't typed anything new for 1 or 2 seconds.
The email address should also use AJAX and let the user know if their email is already in the system and offer to send their login information to that email if they would like.
If you can make this registration page look great, then I can plug it in to my existing site and offer you more projects.
This form will simply plugin to the existing template that I've created. No need to worry about the look outside of the form itself.
