Finally, ocPortal, easy install, all the bells and whistles!

I just need to make it look and behave to match the vision I have for my own site. Hence the ugh! I'm not a code guru, in fact I'm not sure the left side of my brain even works. So I'm going to need some help and you'll probably need to draw me a picture.

My vision is of a commercial site. Starting with a splash screen visitors can browse catalogs and classifieds, including a listing of members. If they decide to subscribe they can log in and be redirected to their own organizer/editor page. From there they can access all the community features as well as add their products or services to the site catalog. Of course there's more to it than that. Trade secrets you know! I don't mind competition but I do want to be the first online with this my idea.

I only want to do business in the US so maybe a few sister sites would be cool in trade for your ocPortal expertise. You may ask why would I give away such a great idea? Well I just thought it up brainstorming while I type. It does fit the motto for my site, "As Friends, About Business" and to be open about it I'm in a hurry to get it online but operating on a shoestring budget. That's why I choose ocPortal! It already does almost everything. A little formatting, a couple new ingredients. It's looking like dreams still can come true and this dream is big enough to share!

Think about it, drop me a line if you want to help. Now back to work, fixed width, I gotta' love it. Let's see……..O_o
