Avg Bid (AUD)
Project Budget (AUD)
$30 - $250

Project Description:
Hi All - I have 5 main requirements I need you to complete on this website:
You must be an expert in doing ALL of these things. Do NOT bid if you cannot perform all of these requirements.
Note: We use Inmotion hosting - cpanel - Joomla (SQL DBs)

Requirement 1 - Joomla upgrade v1.5 to v.3.2:
I need the Joomla 1.5 website upgraded to the latest version Joomla 3.2. You must first perform a back up and TEST the transition in non-production first! You should transition from 1.5 to 2.5 - check that nothing is broken, evaluate if all the plugins, extensions/modules etc will work in 3.2 (and if not find the best replacements) and only the upgrade to 3.2. A full check of the website must be performed to ensure nothing is broken, and it works and looks the way it should.
I need the site to look very similar to current one with all extensions updated/replaced with latest versions in order to improve website security.
The front page and 2 contact forms are probably the most complex part of the site. We have no payment gateways or anything like that.

Requirement 2 - Responsive Design:
I need you to implement responsive design on the website. You need to change the code/style sheet so that the site sizes up and down responsively. This means it can be viewed on smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktops, TV/projector screens, any screensize in an easy to read manner. It should be done in a Google SEO friendly manner.

Requirement 3 - Social Networking article push plugin
I need a plugin installed so can just press 'go' and any new post/article I write goes straight to our Facebook page.

Requirement 4 - Speed up the website load time
Currently 3.57 sec
- Google has some suggestions:
- I saw this which also supposedly helps:
- Also there are some suggestions and fixes here:

Requirement 5 - Minor fixes/updates
- Update sitemap
- Customise the 404 error page
- Fix W3C Validator errors:

IMPORTANT - In completing all of the above, the website MUST look and function the same way and must be Google SEO friendly (no blackhat or unethical or hacking). You MUST always take backups so you can revert and should use proper change management methodology to test before you implement in live production. I do NOT want any downtime of my site (which I monitor).

Most of these items are relatively quick to implement/fix so I would like it all done within 15 days. You must confirm that you can and will do all of the above and will meet my timeframes and expectations.

Skills required:
HTML, Joomla, MySQL, PHP, Website Design
