    Hi everyone.

    I was hoping to get some recommendations and thoughts for one of my backburner projects – its aimed towards connecting charities/organisations who need a service (eg. Photography) with those who are happy to help for free/low cost.

    I would like to create a directory that allows two category of members (organisations and service providers) to find each other, but only after they’ve signed up (for confidentiality reasons). The ability to PM, have a calender and/or noticeboard would be great as well. I know I could do the latter as a forum, however I am keen for members to be able to search amongst themselves, via state etc (similar to the FS Directory) – and for each member to have a proper blurb about themselves, links to websites, logo/pics etc.

    So Im wondering what solutions I may be able to use for this? I dont even know what terms to search for, and if someone has a recommendation for something that works for them, that would be grand :)

    I was considering WordPress Buddypress (this site seems to use it well: http://tastykitchen.com/)

    As its a startup, somethings thats not too expensive would be great too! :D

    Thanks!

    Hi erinna,

    This doesn’t necessarily answer your question, but I was wondering if you were familiar with Good Company? I have often noticed volunteering opportunities for photographers there.

    All the best,
    Jayne

    Hi Jayne,
    Thanks for reminding me of that site. I have seen it before. :)

    It might be a good start for me. For my particular project, I was going to concentrate on photographers to begin with.

    However, it will be good to see how another site operates, and hopefuly i will get some projects from that too :)

    H Errina,

    I run a website design and hosting business and would love the opportunity to discuss this further with you.

    This is a no obilgation discussion. I like to help others out with their ideas and to see if I can help in any way.

    Thanks
    Lea
