I'm looking for a knowledgeable website coder who can write the foundation script for a social networking site. This doesn't have to have a fancy design, just clean functional code. For the first phase I need a registration mechanism implemented (with e-mail confirmation and the ability to limit registration to certain domains), along with a profile editing mechanism of basic user information (plus a picture upload option that scales the image down to a fixed size). User information must also be recorded to a searchable database. This is a low budget project intended for a small network of individuals. I realize that there are free code samples for projects such as these available online. However, while I have no trouble completing ftp uploads, my technical knowledge does not extend to the realm of PHP, CSS, XHTML, MySQL, etc. Hence, professional help is needed :-) Thanks in advance!
