A customer asked us for build a web platform that allows users to share ideas and projects to improve the environment.
The main requirements are:

  • Anyone can register an user account on the platform.
  • Any user can create one or more ideas projects
  • A project is composed by: Title,Abstract,Attached File with full description
  • The project must be validated before its publish. The platform administrator validates the projects
  • A published project can receive comments (both anonymous and registered)
  • A published project can have Social likes

The customer has shown us this site as a reference.

So, We are actually evaluating two ways to handle this project:

  1. Build the platform from scratch.
  2. Build the platform over another well-known platform, such as a CMS like Wordpress, Drupal or Joomla.

Has anyone faced a similar request? Is there a ready-to-use platform that can handle the above requirements?

  • I think the question should be divided. Point 2 is more suitable for WebApps.SE. Point 3 would be on topic here if you reword the question to emphasize that – Tymric Mar 23 '15 at 12:17

    @Timmy, I edited the question, I hope it's more appropriated. – Filadelfo Mar 23 '15 at 12:30
