Can anyone tell me what kind of software is needed to build a site like pressloft.com? And can anyone here do this? If so, please give me an ‘estimated’ price.
Thanks in advance!
To be honest, you could break this website down to a basic WordPress theme with a few plugins. The file submission side of things (the most complex part I can invision) could be handled by our Author Submit Plugin: http://codecanyon.net/item/author-submit-file-wordpress-submission-plugin/3771346
Building a whole new system for a site like this could start getting costly, working with a few premium plugins and a decent theme will cost you a lot less and allow you to customize to your hearts content
Any idea what it would cost (a close estimation is fine) using WP and the plugins?
Depends how much work you can do yourself, if I was to rewind back a few years and do what you want to do on basic WordPress knowledge I could see you spending $100-$200 on a theme and a few plugins, nowadays I would custom make most of it
I would personally build it myself so I know how it works, how I can make it better and for the general experience! Depends how WP literate you are
In the ideal world I would have it all setup and running for me, and then figure out how it works myself . I am not an internet/website analfabetic, but no programming and customizing wizard.
There are some scripts out there that do quite what I need, but there’s always changes to do. There are good scripts available for a reasonable price, but they have the downloaders pay and the uploaders register for free, while I would need just the opposite … and so on. A digital download e-commerce theme: same thing.
I’ve also been checking out the plugin you suggest, but I see only zip files to be uploaded. Is that correct?
