Need help with programming

P: n/a
My name is Sofia and I have for many years been running a personals site,
together with my partner, on a non-profit basis. The site is currently not
running due to us emigrating, but during its last year we got traffic of
between 2000 - 2500 unique visitors per day. We are now about to re-launch
the site from Sweden and we need to purchase a script to run it.

Having looked at what is available on the net I have realised that we need a
custom built - or modified - script and I am now turning to you to ask what
it would cost to buy the script I need. It's just such a jungle out there
and most of the scripts have *something* I need but not all of it.

I estimate that the development time for programming will be around 10
man-hours and I simply can't afford the going rate for an established
programmer to do this. Is there a "young" programmer out there who wants to
establish him/herself or who need a project for coursework who would like to
help us?

What we need:

-A script that can handle multiple connections open simultaneously
- Multiple categories with independent subcategories.
- Fast and reliable search function with cross-referencing between the
categories.
- Preferably the script should be able to handle multiple languages
- Coded in PHP for a MySQL, but need to be adaptable for migration over to
SQL
- Adapted to the design of our site, I have knowledge of PHP in order to do
more simple adaptations myself but need it to be as clean as possible to
start with

Please note that we are a non-profit site. We do not - and do not wish to -
charge for membership since we firmly believe that you should not have to
pay to get a chance to be happy. The site is completely run by private
means. Therefore we can not afford to pay a large amount of money for a
script. We can, in exchange for a moderately priced script, offer
advertising space on the site, and/or for a programmer about to establish
themselves, references.

If you want to help, please email me with your details and prices and you'll
get a full spec.

Regards

Sofia
