My friend and I came up with an idea for a website about an hour ago (it will probably never get done) and we need some suggestions on what technologies to use. Here are the basic needs:
-users should to be able to make posts on the site
-the posts should include text and a single image
-the posts should be able to be edited/deleted by admins
wow, so far it sounds like a forum written in php
trust me, it’s not a forum (although php is sitting in my mind). it will be much more stylized with a specific purpose.
ok, here are the tricky requirements.
-before an image is sent with a post it needs to be edited. it needs another image placed on top, preferably drag and drop. the second image would be smaller than the posted one and i would like to ability to resize it as i place it.
the image editing sounds like a job for flash where as the rest sounds like php. i may be answering my own question by suggesting that they could be used together to get the desired site, but i would really appreciate anyone’s unique ideas on how this could be done.
i am comfortable with flash, xml, php, java, and c#. i have access to a mysql database, but i have never used it (except for phpbb).
Thanks for your help!
