Note: Most of the following is negotiable. We are very willing to receive feedback from interested developers as to better ways to accomplish the end result.

We're looking for a developer who can create a Flash interface to display PDF files. Files need to be non-web-accessible (e.g., stored above the document root). Interface should display two-page spreads, except for the first and last pages of the document. Subsequent pages/spreads should be loaded by a "next page" link, with an animated page transition if possible. Searching, hyperlinks and similar features need to be preserved; copy-paste needs to be disabled. Zooming would also be necessary. A completely custom interface would be desirable but not absolutely required.

Ideally, implementation on the page would be similar to the following: Calling a Javascript function specifying the PDF file name, which would then display the Flash object with that PDF file loaded. Other options would be considered.

Security measured would need to be used to prevent the files from being called and viewed from other websites.

Administration needs to be as simple as possible; ideally we would just upload the PDF to the correct directory and then embed it into a new webpage. Other integration options may be considered but will need to be simple and fast to use.

Basic statistics (pageviews, search terms, link clicks, etc.) would be nice to have but are not necessarily required.

We would like a developer who will be around for awhile so new features can be added if and when necessary, at an appropriate additional fee of course.

Please sticky with any questions or information.
