Project Description


Four Joomla 1.5 sites need to be converted to Joomla 2.5 sites. The J2.5 sites have been created with new J2.5 templates, the data (articles, components, etc.) have been imported. Each new site needs to be configured and tested before replacing its J1.5 counterpart.

What I am responsible for:

- Showing what the J1.5 site looks like and providing full access to the J2.5 counterpart site

- Making sure all article content is present in the J2.5 sites and components are installed and up-to-date

- Providing a testing protocol for each site

- Available to answer questions via freelancer messages or Skype
