Creating a dating site with drupal

I recently launched a serious dating site called NOTforPlayers. Since I had dependency on a lot of the modules which were not released in Drupal 6 at the time when I had started it, this is still a Drupal 5 site.

I have seen enough dating sites out there promoting flings and casual or married type dating which promote affairs to married people. I personally dislike such sites that do not take the moral high ground in love and relationships, and thus it formed the basis for NOTforPlayers. I guess one say that it is a value based niche that I am trying to pitch.

There is also a niche custom feature for exclusivity in online dating , which I will get to later, but let me quickly mention some of the drupal modules being used for this site. I wanted to build a niche around those date seekers who are looking for long-term relationship. Also as the name of the site suggests it is NOT for Players type ;.

That is the Exclusive Dating feature. What this does is ensures that once two date seekers are already pursuing each other seriously that they are not engaging in side conversations with other members at the same time. In order for this feature to take effect, there is some heavy customization of the buddylist and the privatemsg module which won't be easy to share. Basically what I did at a high level is create a custom module and build a bunch of functions that verifies users' dating status to check whether they are in a private bond or not.

If they are, they cannot private message or flirt with anyone else. These functions are called from some key code points in buddylist and privatemsg module using hooks whenever possible. If I could not do it via hooks I had to resort to a forked call to the function in the custom module using a global variable check to see if it is enabled or not , so the alternate logic is only used for this site, but the same module code can be used for other sites without affecting the original logic.

Unfortunately most features cannot be tested without becoming a member, but since this is a production site, please do not become a member for the sake of experimenting with the features. If you have a question, feel free to send me a note and I will try and answer to the best of my ability. Protected Industries. Hi, thanks a lot, it really helped. It would be good to know which of these modules are already present, or improved and in which way, in D6.

Blog de xmariachi Poesia dada. Content profile should be there in lieu of nodeprofile and privatemsg and many of the others, you will have to check yourself. You may not even need the buddylist module which has not been ported to D6. But if you do need some capability like that you can try the "Add as a Friend" or the "User Relationships". HI I am just starting to put a dating site together using Drupal. This post is really helpful! I would also be interested in any custome work done to get the site working? I am thinking of converting my dating website to Drupal or Joomla.

It would be a very local city base website with members ranging from to Is there a group moderator here? I am not sure about these so called Drupalite members who seems to be spamming. This just came on my radar. This has been reported as spam in the groups. Thank you for sharing this info, it is likely to save quite a bit of time.

Unless you have another recommendation I plan to get started by installing and playing with the 13 modules you described. I wish to build a general purpose dating engine that can be themed and used under a variety of brands and niches. My distinguishing feature will be a tool that lets members talk anonymously over the phone. I have the telecom technology available, and I'd like to glue it in after I have a decent dating configuration in place. If anyone is interested, I'll post my progress and . I ended up migrating to django at some point while I was re-considering migrating the site to drupal 7.

It was painful with D7 that I had to consider rebuilding the site - this made me re-consider my choices and went with a framework giving me more developer control from the ground-up. With D8 and Symfony I think it is better now but at the time it wasn't out. How long did it take you to create the site? Do you write your own content? I write a lot of content, but I am spending a lot of time creating the Drupal dating site.
