Freelancer Project....

 

I've put together a site with Joomla components, modules and plugins which nearly does what I need- but it's just not professional enough.

Some comments but please don't let these limit your own valued input or ideas:
Web2.0 theme would be better for the site. Forum perhaps should be full width of the page. I've tried to use the virtualmart component as a directory of vendors, sobi2 just doesn't seem do it or maybe you know of something better? - if two vendors have the same product a location map would be nice. I don't think I've used the page real-estate to it's best advantage.

About the website..
I need the articles in sections and categories easy to find, any product or service mentioned in the article content should be easily linked to available products in a product catalog with its associated vendor.

I would like vendors to be able to add their products and contact details- additionally I'd like field for an (associate id and or coupon code and or percentage customer discount) (published on approval of course) and also allow any submitted articles to be queued for submission and final approval.

As an advertising feature perhaps vendors could share a rotating/sliding advertising space either in a module or banner area based on a the value of the %associate fee %coupon value %discount offered to our customers - a way of saying thank you...


If you think you can help please let me know.
