Vanilla Forum Clean-Up and Improvement

Avg Bid (USD)
Project Budget (USD)
$250 - $750

Project Description:
I am the owner and admin of a forum that has been around for about ten years. It was originally an ASP-based, Windows SNITZ forum, but in 2010 it was converted to a PHP-based, Linux Vanilla forum by an acquaintance of mine. He apparently modded the installation quite a bit...there is some javascript embedded in the site, for example.

The site needs to be cleaned up and brought to a stage where I can maintain it without too much trouble. I would also like a couple things added. Here is a list of specific objectives:

1) Upgrade to latest version of Vanilla
2) Upgrade all currently used add-ons
3) Install a couple add-ons for better spam control and better oversight of members (ability to sort and search member database)
4) Install a gallery application
5) Get the old forum archive (which I think is basically a bunch of html pages archived in the site) set up so as to be searchable (e.g. from Google, etc).
6) Install or create some kind of database that lists the kind of boat and the hull number of the boat that a user has. It might be useful to make these mandatory fields for membership).

Skills required:
CMS, Debugging, Forum Software, MySQL, Website Design
