I'm looking for someone to help me with modifying WordPress to function as an story database. I can pay a little, but I don't have much. Of course, our modifications would be available as plug-ins for others.
I need WordPress to allow new authors to create a new story. Then, they can add chapters to each story that they created (obviously authors cannot add chapters to stories created by other authors).
The stories will be categorized into the top-level categories (like Mystery, Comedy, Romance, etc). So when a reader browses a category, they should see the story. Clicking on the story title takes them to a table of contents for that story. Then the single page view applies to chapters.
I know enough PHP and mySQL to know this is 100% feasible, but I don't know enough to actually do it. If someone could work with me on this, I would eternally grateful and offer you whatever I can when I have anything.
I've already taken a look at the In-Series plug-in, which is amazing, but it doesn't fully do what I need. If someone would work with me, we could perhaps work off of Scott's genius script.
Please let me know if you're interested. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
