We’re looking for an experienced developer who can help build a CMS plugin that lets us access and manipulate the content database right in the Admin panel, i.e. similar to what we can do with WordPress.
Several features that we’d love to have:
- Able to import data (specifically category/subcategory name, abbreviation, description) from excel/csv files. We want to create thousands of subcategories so it’s just not practical to do this manually.
- Provides us useful statistics such as topics with most comments, likes, date, authors and which categories/sub-categories they belong to, etc.
- Since we may have categories with thousands of sub-categories, we’d like to “hide” some/all these sub-categories so that they won’t clog up the Categories page which we’re planning to use as home page.
We’ve tried our best to look around for solutions that may exist somewhere but wasn’t quite successful so far. If you have some pointers, we would be very appreciated if you could point us to the sources. Thank you for your help!
I hope it sound feasible and interesting enough to try. If you’re interested in the project, please shoot me a message! We’ll pay for your work but are willing to make it an open source and be available to everyone afterwards since we understand many will need it. Thank you for your attention!
