Project Description:
We have a phpBB 3 board with about 5,229 members. This phpBB was recently upgraded to the latest phpBB version because there was a large amount of spam registrations but the problem already persists.
Moreover, we changed subsilver template and use the metropolis template bought at
I need someone fast who knows what they are doing with phpBB and can take this over quickly.

We specifically need the following done:
1. Fix the issue with the reCaptcha add-on or with other add-on to reduce the number of spam registrations.
2. After upgrading, the search function does not work. I need to fix it.
3. After upgrading, the user avatar images are no longer visible. I need to fix it.
4. Insert a chat, like facebook chat (or like phpbb socialnetwork chat) to show all user on line and to allow chatting among them.
5. Add in metropolis template some buttons:
A) to modify posts; B) to quote parts of messages; C) change the background with something of white; D) increase the dimension of text of title of posts and arguments in the forum.
6. Create a forum section in which you can read the post of Facebook Group called Uninamed;
7. Create a mobile version of template in which you can use it from Iphone/Android Smartphone or alternatively create a mobile application for Iphone/Android Smartphone.
The ideal Freelancer for this project should have the following:

1. Experience with installing, customizing and installing add-ons to phpBB 3 and have done this dozens of times before. I don't have the time or luxury for a new freelancer with little experience to take this on due to the circumstances.

2. Be available immediately to start on this project.

We can provide FTP and phpMyAdmin access to the forums. Since the forums are for students that in this period are doing exams, it would be best if any major work can be done outside of normal Italian business hours so existing users are not disrupted.
