Customizing Buddypress for a non-profit social networking site
Iâ€™m building a social networking site based on WordPress MU and BuddyPress (latest versions downloaded a month ago), I still need couple of things to be done, and I was hoping someone could be generous to help me with, what Iâ€™m asking for is the following:
1. Main navigation bar: I want to remove, add, modify the name, of links on the main horizontal navigation bar. Mostly, I want to add the links for the sub blogs (from the menu under blogs) and add them as main links on the nav bar side by side with â€œGroupsâ€ and â€œForumsâ€ > http://damacom.net/
2. I want an NGO directory, one that includes NGOs, charity associations, etc, where people need help can easily find them. Iâ€™ve searched all kind of plugins, but what I need is:
2.1. For it to include: Organization name, contact info (tel., fax., email, address), and one small brief paragraph about the organization and what they do
2.2. Organization categorized by country and category for people to easily find what theyâ€™re looking for among hundreds of organization that will be listed there
2.3. Entries (organizationsâ€™ names and info) could be entered by admin, or users themselves, but when entered by users, it needs the admin approval first so others donâ€™t abuse this section.
3. People can post project proposal to get NGOs attention to help them, this will be as the main blog
3.1.1. Can I add more fields to the blog post entry other than the typical title/body fields? It should have at least 7 more fields; 1 in one line text field format, 6 in a text area (where they can write a brief paragraph) format, and a drop down menu for the project country.
3.1.2. Search the project section for projects
3.2. Somewhere to post the project from the main page, without having to go into the dashboard, or at least a link that can take the technically newbie users directly to the post project (blog post) section.
I hope I managed to make everything clear, if thereâ€™s one of these point that are not clear, kindly ask me and Iâ€™ll clear it up.
Your help is mostly appreciated; it is for a good cause to help people trying to do good things in their communities, and itâ€™s completely non-profit.
