Five Features I want to Implement
I am starting a forum that will be a review site for products. I am trying to implement the following features but don't know where to start.
I want certain sections of product reviews to only be viewable by "Verified Reviewers". I want anyone to be able to read the basic review details such as product specifications, description, scaled rating, etc., but I want the detailed review to be only available to that group of users I specified.
In the review section of the forums I want there to be tags the user can put when replying to reviews to keep part of their comment private and where only verified reviewers can read those comments. Something like the following:
[PRIVATE] Text Here Only Visible To Verified Reviewers [\PRIVATE]
I want the users side profile in threads to show how many reviews they've made underneath the amount of posts they've made.
I want their detailed profile to show all the reviews they've made with links to the particular threads (in the future I want to run analytics on product trends).
I want there to be three buttons for starting a thread in the forum. The first one is a "new thread" button which is already there. The next one is a "ask a question" button that titles the thread under the question category. (again, I want to monitor trends in the future). The third button is a "write a review" button that has a form for users to fill out adhering to review guidelines.
I know this is a lot to ask but if anyone can help or point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.
