Reason why i want to know what goes into dating site is so i know who and what type of programmers to hire.
Thank you in advance for your input Edited by tarzanhunter, 01 March 2013 - PM. Drupal may be a good platform, find a developer who knows Drupal inside out and they should have the programming skills to make it happen.
Some info on Drupal and dating sites; The first question I would ask is why you want to recreate something that's been done to death for over 15 years? Times change, people change with new opportunities popping up daily.
I don't know the coding / technology that i need to make this happen.
Site needs to enable users to search, edit and create profiles but i do not know what type of coding system or type of site will allow that to happen.
Just imagine any dating site out there, i want to know what type of technology a typical dating site uses to make the site operational.
Obviously i am not going to create the site on my own, i am going to hire professionals who are capable of doing this.
IE buying Facebook fans, having them click adsense along with having an analytics account. I was asked from the start what I thought of the idea but never talked to the nephews. At the end of the first month and a few days later with the investors anxiously awaiting the progress of this report they'd probably be a bit chagrined finding that all of my contact information responded with ....."left town" forwarding address unknown. You need a very good business plan, tons of market research, a budget, some very unique selling points etc.
before you get anywhere near thinking about the code to build the site - that's the easiest bit. As I said above, you may wish to investigate Content Management Systems like Joomla and Drupal.
The first question I would ask is why you want to recreate something that's been done to death for over 15 years? Times change, people change with new opportunities popping up daily. Those programmers will ask you what functions you want. Do you want to be able to maintain it yourself or hire someone?
UPDATE: I would appreciate people to actually read my question and not just glance over it.
I need to know HOW to do the site; even though i appreciate it, i am not looking for opinions on whether or not if the site should be created.
