I just bought the DZOIC script but unfortunately they do not offer custom services. I am looking to customize the script and unencode some sections that are encoded:
* function "add friend": adds 2 members to each others personal networks
* function "remove friend": removes 2 members from each others personal networks
* function "network amount": calculates the number of friends for a particular degree
* function "friends": returns the list of member's friends
* function "friend of friends": returns the list of member's friends of friends
* function "connection": calculates the number of handshakes between 2 members
* function "is trusted": verifies if one member is in an allowed handshake distance from another member
* function "audience filter": creates an sql query filter that excludes unauthorized content from members visibility
* function "colorize": colorizes images (used in a "colorize template" feature)
The handshakes that the script refers to is the degree of seperation between users. Anyone in my friends list is 1 degree from seperation from me. Anyone in my friends' friends list is 2 degrees or handshakes away and anyone in my friends friends friends list is 3 degrees away and so forth. Basically this works like [url removed, login to view] and I would like to unencode this section so i can make it closer to Linkedin.
Other sections I wanted to do is add extra features in the membership package section the script already has. An extra feature is having paid members being displayed first in search results according to their subscription level (like [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view]). Also Id like to add a Networking Credits system like Linkedin (Personal Contacts , Colleagues, Classmates)
Other sections Id like added is users being able to:
Banner / Text Link Management
• Add product name
• Set price
• Upload photo of merchandise
• Buyer pays via Paypal
• Feedback system (positive / neutral / negative)
• We revenue share with seller unless they are paid member
Create Events: (Google map api installed). They can use RSVP for free events or issue paid tickets (set ticket price /enter number of available tickets / enter max tickets a person can buy).
Photo Section: Add a drop down where user selects type of photo. Add a tag section where user can tag photos with keywords and add to search.
Admin profile: Master admin profile needs to be on every profile.
Current internal message sending system needs to be redirected there. Like Tom on [url removed, login to view]
Education Section: Add school database that i have and make searchable.
Company Section: Make this section more like Linkedin.
News/Article Posting (like blogs): Post Articles or News / Upload photo /Cite Source / Users can Discuss and rate articles
Answers / Questions (this is like Google/yahoo Answers): Ask Questions
/ Answer / Cite Sources / Discuss. Assign price if professional question. Give positive/negative/neutral feedback to person who answers. Build chart system of top rated answerers.
Add RSS Feeds
Adjust the Hotornot section to include: "Meet Me" which notifies someone you want to meet them. They can accept/reject it [url removed, login to view] (this section is already included without the Meetme part).
ADD Tags as a function under OPTION SOURCES
Editing Sections: – When i add classifieds now i can not move categories up and down or make them sort alphabetically. Classifieds can move category/subcategory up and down
Id like to customize the DZOIC script (template wise/logowise) and also include an install section where I can install the script on different domains. Unfortunately the guys at Dzoic do not offer custom scripts and suggested to find programmers to edit their script. They say it is 99% opensource and only the 1% i noted in the beginning of my requirements is encoded.
Payment is 20% down, 50% completed and 30% when i have it transferred. I would also like to work with a team that would use to upgrade script with future new features.
The script works great but i need it to be custom made without any encoding and free of any reference to DZOIC on the script since i am building this for my site and want no Handshakes reference in the site.
