FluxBB developer needed for updates and small tweaks

I have a custom forum for marketing research purposes (think online focus groups to discuss new products and service ideas).

It was was built on FluxBB by a developer who eventually left to go back to school and is no longer available.
He did a good job and the system has been running for 3+ years with no issues (or updates) 

He was able to use FluxBB to do some custom things because of it's flexibility but now i need maintenance and some small feature development.

I'm interested in finding someone who i can hire to do small FlexBB projects in their spare time.

I have a real budget and am flexible on timing.

The landing page for the site is ThoughtNav dot com
It isn't a login to the site - just a landing/marketing page but you can get an idea of what the custom tweaks included.

Anyone interested please contact me for more details.
Cheers
Mike

Re: FluxBB developer needed for updates and small tweaks

You are flexible on timing, but the software which you use is FluxBB, not FlexBB. Is it a joke? How couldn't you see that? It's impossible. big_smile

Re: FluxBB developer needed for updates and small tweaks

OK - here are some examples of things i'm looking to have done:

- create an interface that lets me bulk edit questions that will be posted. Currently i have to go into each "topic" and write/edit the question that will be posted. I'd like to do this in a format that let's me view the items before and after so i can keep the list of questions straight. Also be able to change the future post times in bulk instead of editing the post time for each individual topic/question one at a time.

- ability to show a list of who is currently logged into the system (right now i can see how many but not which ones)

- install plug-in to perform simple voting or poll questions. For example select and capture multiple choice item such as "which one of these logos do you like the best? A B C or D? etc.

- ability to capture the history of messages that have been sent out to a person or group. right now my system lets' me select which group members will get a message but i don't have any history/archive or "sent" file that i can see to remind me who was sent a message in the past.

- Ability to format messages that will be sent out via email (bold, italics etc)

- Ability to select an image/avatar from a library of images. The option to have these avatars automatically tied to present screen names - we have a long list of cartoon characters we assign as screen names to keep users anonymous for each study (users are typically involved for less than a week for each study). Some users are able to find an avatar and upload on their own  but would be nice to load the avatar automatically.

-  Save view preference (by groups or by time) and persist this to the next page or topic. Right now i can sort a page view by group or by date but as soon as i move to the next topic it reverts to the default (date). Also need this for exporting the transcripts of the entire forum discussion so i can read comments by group and then date etc.

- ability to change the navigation text from English to Spanish depending on the study. (Navigation text includes the submit button, next and back buttons, delete, edit, reply buttons etc. )

- future enhancements might even include finding a way to link to a real time chat window for live chats that can use the same login ID and password. We often have clients who want to end a multi day forum discussion with a final Q&A chat done in real time (but still in text so they have the transcript - they don't usually want a voice session)

Hope these examples help explain more of what i'm looking for help with.
The way i've used the forum for my research tool is slightly different than a traditional forum.
The landing page would help explain more.

Look forward to hearing from someone even if you think you can only help with some of these
Mike
