News Aggregator Application
Our firm is implementing a custom news fetching and filtering feature that will be integrated with our website and intranet.
Need support in customizing Development Seed’s PHP Managing News application (a Drupal module) to meet our specific needs. Familiarity with this module or drupal would be very helpful to the project.
1. Fix and customize search feature
2. Add unique content widgets and tagging feature (which will list similar news items, last items viewed, links to related company profiles, and relevant site/archive content in other portions of site or database)
3. Amend admin function to choose which news items to publish or delete, and easier method for applying a weighted score for overall ranking in published feed lists
4. Need to customize look of user version and news front-end to match our website design flow while maintaining separate admin version
5. Should revamp app file structure to allow for easier in-house editing of source files and discard irrelevant files
6. Need to add capability for admin to add/link commentary text and graphics to any news item which will be displayed with news feeds
7. Create additional functions for feed management and publishing
8. Modify cron.php file and any other necessary changes so feeds will be automatically updated
9. Make admin page independent of user page so content can be filtered internally and then published to website for users to see
10. Develop archiving system that can store old news/content and associated material
Please provide best estimate of turnaround time and cost.
