Description

Experience Level: Expert
To create a product emulator tool which is article driven with step by step instructions which can be placed within any html document via an iframe. It will require an easy to update CMS/back end whereby anybody without technical knowledge can create another product emulator and will also need to have the ability to track all articles created.

You will need to bear in mind that this emulator will be used across multiple manufacturers/brands and in various product groups.

Sample
The product emulator will need to resemble the following link (http://www.lgbuzz.co.uk/handsets/25/how_do_is)

Differences
The following will need to be different or added within our product emulator:
- Next to each of the article bullet points (top 10) a thumbnail image of a category will need to be produced. For example a category for MP3 player, Camera, Video Camera, etc, etc. We will be using icons from the handsets menu system as the thumbnails.
- The handset image on the left when you first visit the page will need to have the ability to be an image or a swf/flash animation file (uploaded by us).
- Rather than a flashing red circle on hovering over the steps we would like to use a hand/finger pointing image (this will be supplied).
- Each article will need to have the ability to be shared via email. The user should be able to click 'Email this article' icon and a separate box should pop up with a your name and your email address fields.
- Each article should have the ability to be printed using a pre-defined template; for example a blank document with the manufacturer/website logo (top left) along with the website address (which is pre-defined per emulator).
- A send via SMS feature which can be switched on or off per emulator.
- When viewing 'Browse all topics' rather than a folder icon it will need to again be a thumbnail category image which can be uploaded using the CMS system.
- The emulators will need to have analytics (views & unique views, how many emailed, how many printed).
o Using the analytics the emulator should automatically place the most viewed article in to the top 10 articles section.
- At the bottom/footer of each article it will need to have the following:
o Go back one step (icon with ALT description)
o Go to Top 10 articles
o Print this article (icon with ALT description)
o Email this article (icon with ALT description)
o Rate this article (5 round dots and a submit button)
- The colours of emulator will need to have its own css file/link to customise the emulator look
- An 5 star article rating system whereby users can rate each article
- Hotlink protection (where possible â?? please advise either way).
Considerations
Please design the CMS & emulator with the following considerations.
- The emulator must be easy for our customers/partner websites to embed into their site using a supplied iframe code
- The emulator must have an interface for updates and allow for the removal of certain articles
- If you are using a database we use MySQL
- The emulator should fit within 720 (w) pixels x 450 (h) pixels
- The look and feel must be customisable using an external css file
- The emulator should be built to allow other product groups, manufacturers and retailers.
- This will be hosted on our servers which have a MySQL database.

Deadline
All work will need to be completed by Friday 15th January 2010 10am GMT, this includes testing and implementation within our servers and databases.

Please note our Offices will be closed from 12pm Thursday 24th â?? Monday 28th December 2009; however we will be picking up emails and will endeavor to reply to these promptly.
