Own personals dating software
Still, the script works and has been around for years. For example, if you want to sell a useless domain on Flippa for a grand, you could just buy this script, install and sell the domain as a REAL DATING SITE. Hm, maybe if you're on tight budget and existing functionality is all you need, and you have some fix-it-yourself skills, and it's a It's Able Dating rebadged.
Dating Framework is the only dating software with a proper Modular Extensible Plugin & Theme system. So you can easily change functionalities and design.
Dating Framework is also the only dating software with Developer Documentation & API Documentation.
So, Able Dating changed colors and called itself a Chameleon. All those " Chameleon wants you to believe that rainbow templates and 3d-chat plugin would make your site awesome, all for under $300.
Look closer and you'd see that base functionality is dated and rigid. Anyway, the guys are real (they even have a real office with real cubicles).
There is "dating network" option for connecting a shared database, there are various discounts for Marketplace plugins, separate pricing for mobile sites (or is it for apps? Ska Date pricing sits at a more digestible $499 for the platform itself, but mobile apps add a hefty extra $800. Sounds like you could just download Ox Wall, buy a template, use hosting auto-installer, pay $99 for branding removal and save yourself about $300, no? Works for attracting webmasters, but doesn't make much difference for site success. It's a Freelancer order that wasn't accepted by client and was repackaged for a quick buck grab, obviously.
), developer licenses, separate site for custom services, etc, etc. So, I'd suggest skipping all the mumbo-jumbo and talking to their sales rep directly. Again, perhaps it's best to chat with sales rep, ask for the most cost effective "package" and make an offer. End-users aren't impressed with fancy design (not after the first 4 seconds, anyway). Dating Scripts, vld Personals, Socialscript are all doorway sites of one company - vld Interactive.
Then think about how YOU could make them work for your idea. These Russian guys from Yoshkar-Ola have been around for as long as I can remember.
No matter what you ask the vendor they are going to convince you that their software is a perfect fit. Custom services create huge workload for developers and they always skimp on non-generic tech support. (PG stands for "Pilot Group", not "Parental Guidance").
I have to repeat this again - you need to have the project concept before you even start looking at online demos, feature lists and sample sites!
