We're looking for a content management system / knowledge base management system for frequently asked questions. System must have security for admins, writers (who can edit but not have their post public), and viewers. Viewers should be able to add comments like a blog using CAPTCHA input (i.e. the blury letters/numbers, if you aren't familiar with this we have components to do that part). We're open to you finding a script that meets these requirements that is licensed such that we can install this for other customers WITH MODIFICATIONS (i.e. source required) without any further cost (i.e. open source but a liberal license). This MUST BE ASP.NET, prefer 2.0 instead of 1.1, storage engine should be Microsoft SQL Server. Full text index / search a major plus. Should use master pages, asp.net controls, etc.
The categories should be nestable with unlimited nesting. Unlimited number of entries per category.
WYSIWYG editor a MUST, should support copy/paste OF IMAGES into system (i.e. if image is in word and I paste it should paste, AND UPLOAD A URL SPECIFIC TO THAT PAGE). If this is the only part you get "stuck" on then we can discuss some options for this with you.
PMB your ideas, someone who grasps our goals from this description and can implement this with little involvement from us until a draft is ready to comment on will be preferred. This is a featured project so that we may turn this into a long term relationship with a developer if you are a good match to our needs.
Project budget will vary with your proposal, $30-100 for existing script with source that you're unable / not interested in modifying, $100-$300 for above, $300+ if you really understand this and can enhance our ideas to make this into a solution we can sell to our customers. I'm posting it as $100-$300 as that's what response we expect, however it is NOT our maximum.
Project will be extended if we aren't happy with any proposals in the PMB.
