News RSS site

News Feed (RSS / XML) Portal Site

We require a news service website design that offers a portal for the worldwide (english to start with) public to find all major (and smaller) news publishers in one place.

The design and layout and the way the site works needs to be based on [url removed, login to view] (NN). Please check this site out and form a good opinion/idea of how the site works. Please bid a realistic amount based on this description and also on your view of recreating NN. You would also need to be available for further updates and work on the site after completion if any further updates or enhancements are required.

As a further example: The way the site would work is similar to the way that Google now present news based on a search term. (for example: [url removed, login to view])

The site will load news RSS feeds from 100's of sources to start with but needs provsion to search 0000's to 00000's

The site will section news storys into different subjects based on the subject keywords being found within the RSS news headline or RSS quick content

- Subject/catorgory lists and definition will be set in admin.

The site will download all RSS feed info into a searchable database (30-day archive) on a cron job continuously.

- With the possibility that the actual story content from the outside site's news page is downloaded into the database to.

Cron jobs would run continuously with publisher importance being set in admin for different subjects. For example the scanning of Reuters would be more frequent than a small independant publisher that clearly publishes 10 stories a day.

The front end will display infomation similar to the example site above.(NN)

There will be a section for publishers to 'submit a site' or RSS feed. This infomation will be accessible in the Admin. Admin will be able to add into RSS list or decline for set reason.

The backend admin needs provision to add/load/edit/delete new RSS/XML feeds to our sites list of searched news.

This may need provision for admin intervention to program (or maybe we can completely automate) the way a feed is read and interpret the diffent XML headers and content.

For Info - Here are an example of 3 news feeds:

[url removed, login to view]

[url removed, login to view]

[url removed, login to view]

Some RSS feeds will be from sites that are 'Registration only' sites so users of our site need to be warned about this before clicking through.

The site will have 2 visitor subscription varients:


The search facility on the 'free' use site would be limited to a single word, and only searches the headline.

The free for all info on the site would be search engine friendly and easy to use.

Paid for:

The subscriber service would include extra features:

- Searching the full-text of articles

- Unlimited words to search rather than just a single word.

- Exclusion of words and phrases

- Exclusion and inclusion of news sources

- Exclusion and inclusion of whole subject areas

- Ability to perform case-sensitive searches

- Email Alerts : Ability to save keywords and then be sent an email when a news article is published with that keyword.

The paid for subscription will be discussed in further detail (and the way in which the subscriber pays - most probably a simple mobilephone / cellphone sms or text subscription - this is easy to implement and we have all details).

The paid for subscriber would have a user name and password to be able to log in to the site and view the additional features plus limited user account info and control panel.

The admin needs a section to administer users.

A small CMS system in the admin is needed to add and edit various Misc pages. Plus a simple CMS for FAQ.

Extra info:

Banner / Advertiser manager required in admin.

A unique logo and site/corporate identity is also required.

Domain and hosting is provided.
