I am interested in creating a website which will be based on news from other sites based on their rss news feeds. There will be a menu with categories, for example Music, Business, World, Sports, Politics, Technology, Science, Most popular, Video News etc. An example of a website similar to the one described in detail below is [url removed, login to view]
In each category we will assign specific rss feeds from various sites.
There should be a mechanism which will read these feeds, combine theme in a single feed and present it within the category in chronological order.
It should be directly readable by the user (in an html format)
It should clearly show the source of the feed (for example [url removed, login to view])
The feed will be clickable and if clicked the user will be transferred (in a new tab) to the complete article itself of the original website.
The feeds of each category are going to be decided by me (I have gathered 90% of theme)
There should be a mechanism with which it will be easy to add/remove categories as well as add/remove feeds. This must be done either from a program like Dreamweaver or another easy to use interface.
It should be able to show feeds which have pictures.
The layout should be similar to the one of a forum. For example [url removed, login to view] . It should understand the settings of the users screen resolution and stretch the main body in the middle (only) accordingly end to end.
On top, the logo and some links (contact, help etc)
On the left, the menu first. Underneath the menu, a bar for advertisements. Underneath that, another bar for various other thinks (I Haven't decided yet)
On the right a searcher, a bar for advertisements and another bar below that another bar for various other thinks (I Haven't decided yet).
In the middle the main body of the site where the feeds are going to be shown. It should be big (at least 3-4 times wider than the side bars mentioned above.
It should understand the settings of the users screen resolution and stretch the main body in the middle (only) accordingly end to end.
The menu should be in the lines of [url removed, login to view] . Choose a category and reveal the sub categories. In addition when one category is clicked the previous should fold (close).
The website should be easy to navigate by the user and easily editable (add/remove categories, subcategories and feeds within the categories and subcategories) by me.
It should be able to read all kinds of rss feeds (rss1.0, 2.0, Atom etc)
