Project Description:
***I'm in search of a coder to supply 3-5 eCommerce projects per month. The below is a trial project to test your abilities***


1. To demonstrate your ability and professionalism in working with CSS, PHP, Javascripts, Joomla & its components;
2. To demonstrate your ability in delivering fundamental & typical tasks which will appear in projects with Crease Media in the future.

The Task

Upgrade the current existing website of crease media into the nominated server with the following:

- upgrade an existing site from old Joomla version (v.1.0.2) to version 1.5.2+ into the new development server( see below for details);
- retain the same design layout as the existing site;
- retain the existing components or find an equivalent which is compatible with the version 1.5.2+
eg. Install the latest version JCE Editor component for the Admin as the existing version would be outdated for the new version;
- retain the existing database to transfer over to the new one;
- apply the following new components:
- install this free component for blog ( design for it will be provided;
- apply an SEF for both languages (spanish and english);
- apply a poll in the RHS (Right-Hand-Side);
- retain Joomfish for the multi-languages but upgrade it to make it compatible with v.1.5.2+
- apply cc newsletter to replace 'Letterman' component retaining the existing templates and functionalities;
-Apply Javascript to Portfolio window: it should open in a pop-up fixed window width & height without browser tools showing;
- Retain the javascript for the menu and sub-menus;

Points to Consider:
* The LHS (Left-Hand-Side) columns & RHS columns should allow for future inserts of jpgs, gifs, articles (static) short descriptions, and swf files;
* The ccNewsletter should allow a customizable CSS to be used in its editor to apply to templates (similar to how it is now with Letterman);
* The portfolio section is the key part of this website so please be sure to retain the way it was built, if in doubt, ask ;

* be sure to work directly off the development server (details below) for me to monitor your progress at a daily basis;

Crease will upload actual content.

Key points for Delivery:
1. Test the website in both Mac/PC (explorer 6+, firefox 3+, Safari 3+) for consistency in layout issues for CSS compatibility;
This is crucial that you show good ability in testing your own work without my involvement;

2. note: I'd want a simple change-log of all code alterations & code comments on the PHP files where needed. change-logs should include:
- date & name of coder;
- name & path of file where code was changed;
- line number of the lines changed
Inside the files, there should be comments with short descriptions of the task under // tags;
email me the change-logs on a daily basis or at bare minimum every 2 working days to show your progress;

3. Your ability in understanding & executing how SEF works for multi-languages and compatibility between the free components for Joomla

budget: $150
bonus: $50 if provider provides good level of testing and meets deadline
deadline: within 7 working days of project award (allow 3 full days to test & troubleshoot prior to due date)
