You have chosen to sponsor your bid up to a maximum amount of .
Recently, I posted two projects. I discovered the following:
> Too many people disregard pertinent info in the post or don't bother to read it
> Most who respond do not have the qualifications or experience required
> Most, esp. those in India and nearby countries, are charging outrageous amounts of money for the work
I got irritated with all the $300 bids and did it myself. Doing it for the FIRST time, it took me 2 hours. To do it again would take an hour. I've already installed WP, Multisite, BP and a multitude of themes. It's not difficult and it's not worth anywhere near $300. To charge that means you either don't know what you're doing or you're trying to take advantage of someone's ignorance and make a lot of money from them for a little bit of work.
> Do not respond if you don't have extensive experience working with WP and BP. I know enough to test your knowledge.
> Do not harrass me to reply to you immediately. Do not bombard me with emails, hound me to give you the job or ask me to Skype with you.
> Do not address me as Sir. A simple "Hi" works fine these days. Asia, get up to speed on this! You're still living in the '60s.
> Be VERY fluent in English. I don't have time for communication problems.
> Be able to answer my questions with a clear and definitive response. I don't want general answers I can find online. At the end of this, I need to understand the back-end of things as well as you do.
> Understand Multisite and BuddyPress as well as the challenges of tweaking themes with this file structure.
IF you can do all of these things, I will hire you for much more work. The budget I'm looking for right now is $80-100. It's not a lot but it is work and could lead to a lot more work.
I am working in BuddyPress with WPMUDEV's Studio theme. I need the following:
> Buttons like Home, Activity, etc. are not showing - need to you to fix that and explain the problem (in case I run into it again)
> Customization to CSS
> Some tweaking to the functions.php file
> Insertion of logo instead of standard "typed" site name and tag
> Creating layout of Studio theme to look like the demo using placeholder images that I can replace later
To consider the job "done," the site's home page must function and look very similar to the Studio demo. I want to tweak a few things such as the columns. I may add some plugins but will consider this additional work not related to this project. I am ready to hire someone immediately.
Again, this is a starter project. If you can prove to me you know what you're doing, you're fast and reliable, it will lead to a lot more work. You will not have to keep bidding on projects. You will have work on a weekly basis for the next year or so, as long as I am happy with the results. I am not difficult to work for provided you know what you are doing. I don't have time to waste with people who are not qualified.
If I do not respond to your bid or PM, it means you aren't what I'm looking for or you're charging too much. I hope to find the right person from this posting.
