Firstly, please DO NOT respond with template quotations, if you are going to bid for this project you must respond with a real response to the requirements below. Any template responses will simply be ignored. Please also note we do not want to use any pre-made or open source software such as joomla/wordpress/mambo etc, this must be a custom solution which we can expand on in the future.
Our client is wishing to have a website where visitors can signup and fill out a few details with images/text and this will produce a website for them at [url removed, login to view] - The user will have 2 options, either a FREE website or to sign up and pay a small fee for an enhanced website which can include videos, etc. The website must be able to take payments (payment gateway to be confirmed) for users who signup using the premium method. The software must be in PHP. The user will be able to select from around 10 templates for their personal website. We have designed all 10 templates and we have designed the actual front end of the website too. The website is in a web 2.0 style so we would like some animated ajax and other such nice features. The user must also be able to select either "PUBLIC" or "PRIVATE" and if they select private they can set a password to access the web page, if public anyone can browse to that webpage. Please could you provide a quote and a rough timescale for such a website. At the beginning it will be very simple but we want PHP so we can expand in the future and ask you to develop more features as we require them.
