HERE'S THE JOB--
After looking at hundreds of website templates I have selected the MANIFOLIO template for my website design. . It is an extremely popular design based on Joomla 1.5, over 50,000 people have downloaded this free template. I have already installed Joomla1.5 on the server at HostGator, and I have installed the basic MANIFOLIO template which provides the background image and the header for the website.
What I need to have installed now is all of the modules, components, skins, and images that go with this template so that it is complete and looks and functions like the demo version which you can see at:

[click "Test Drive" to see the complete demo site]
The documentation, components, modules, etc. and updates for this template can be downloaded from:
[url removed, login to view]:downloads
There are also instruction videos and images showing how to download and install the components to complete the template installation:

The template includes three bottom modules on the home page, and the first module provides a button for selecting one of four different styles (colors) for the website... charcoal, maroon, charcoal-and-maroon, sky. All four must be functional.
All functionality must remain. I will be altering text on the site after you are done.
I would like to get it done asap... next few days.
Would also like to replace the header/logo with my own logo. And would like to remove the "created by" attribution text and links everywhere except for the tiny text/link at the bottom of the page.
After you have completed a copy of the demo version on my web server, I would then like to "publish" a separate copy to my web address which is already functioning at HostGator. This "published" copy will then have some changes made to it, like different text and different images than the demo copy. That way I will always have a complete unaltered original copy that looks like the demo version, and I will also have my own published website that is based on the template but has alterations made to it with different images and different text. I will provide the images that will need to be installed in the Joomla database for replacing the original images, maybe two dozen. I believe the Joomla software will automatically re-size the images as necessary, but I'm not sure as I am completely new to Joomla.
As I will be using the website to sell a couple of dozen different power tools and batteries, I will need to have two different PayPal buttons installed on multiple pages. When the user clicks the PayPal buttons it will link them to the PayPal website and all transactions will be conducted there. This way no shopping cart software will need to be installed on my server.
So here is a review:
1. Download and install all components, modules, skins, images and other items to duplicate the demo template onto my server.
2. Create a second copy of this completed template on my server and "publish" it to my website address.
3. Make alterations to this "published" copy which will include:
a. replacing the original images with the images of the tools and batteries I am going to sell (a couple dozen or so)
b. replacing header/logo with my logo image
c. installing two PayPal buttons on several pages
d. making a few other simple alterations, less than an hour of work, to be determined
