A new website intended for engineers of the Indian community.
Site Name : Indian Engineers
Site URL : http://www.indianengineers.com
Site Description : A community for Indian Engineers.
Unique Features : All of them are listed below (Atleast what I can think of now)
The forum has a lot of features which the community may want to look into:-
1) A custom landing page with registration and login
- Uses custom validation.
- Friendly notice after activation page . It won't take you to a new page with literally two line of text with the header. Looks really ugly that way.
2) Profile Builder.
- After you register you are taken to the profile building page. Similar to that of all social networking sites. You have steps to build your profile. It is very friendly and easy.
- Custom auto complete. It doesn't use the default auto complete system. For example, when you are entering your university name, if it already exists it will show or else the new entry is added to the database and next time it will show up in autocomplete.
3) Custom header.
- The header_welcomeblock_member is not displayed everywhere. User experience is an important aspect. Wherever required it is displayed.
- Tabbed view in the home page for custom status updates and notification.
The notification system by Euantor is great. We added a few more notifications that we seemed necessary to keep the community ticking.
5) Recommendation System.
A user can request for recommendation from a another user. For example, A student profile can request recommendation from a teacher. The more recommendations, the value of that profile is more and authentic.
6) Pages instead of profile.
Instead of the having profiles, Indian Engineers have pages for accounts that are registered as companies or institutions.
7) A custom profile view.
Well the profile view is completely different to that of the default mybb.
8) Home page view.
The view is more connected to the community with status updates, your friends online, news from Engineering field, Star members of your community, hot topics of your community etc. Then we have our classic mybb forums.
Please provide us some feedback of the features and functionality. Anything constructive will be always appreciated.
