Destination website - finish Joomla website (or recreate from new template)

In Progress

I need someone to finish a destination website. I started building it using the free Ice Black & White Joomla template -- see [url removed, login to view] for the website. However, it is not complete, and I've run out of time, as well as skills to finish the job. Need someone experienced (if you don't have positive reviews already, or have not passed any exams on freelancer, please don't apply). As you'll see from the website, the pictures are not sharp (I took them using a canon, and then cut/resized them using [url removed, login to view]). I will provide the original photos, logo, etc. Also, text needs to be filled in for most pages -- i.e. listings of real estate agents, etc. I can type them up in an email or a document; need someone to format them nicely into the pages. The structure is mostly there - since I think it covers everything I can think of (but of course would gladly take any suggestions on improvement)

I'm technical myself - unix, perl, C, etc. (though not a website developer). I want to maintain the content myself going forward. My requirements are:

1. ***IMPORTANT*** works with Joomla 2.5.x, and upwardly compatible with 3.x and future versions.

2. you can use another template if you think another one will work better; I just used Black&White since it was free.

3. Logo is important (I think its fine, but if you can improve it, even better). Rest of pictures can be moved/switched/thrown-away/replaced. If you can find royalty free pictures of the island of St. John, in the US Virgin Islands, I'd be happy to have you use them.

4. Needs to work with a backup module like Akeeba (I want to have something to back up the content/structure easily on a regular basis)

5. Needs to be expandable. Right now the website is informational, but I want to eventually sell things on it. Don't want a complex cart or something; perhaps something where I can link off to other sales websites

6. ***IMPORTANT*** Needs to work with, and look nice on mobile devices -- esp. iphones, ipads and android phones. With the template I use the menu gave me some hassles on iphone/ipods. I worked around it, but would prefer to make the top menu point to separators instead of the category-list they point to right now.

7. Need a way to track visitors.

8. ***IMPORTANT*** Needs to have ads on it. Two types of ads -- one or two ads at the top of each page (I intend to "recommend" one person in the real-estate list, e.g., etc.). Second type of ad is google adsense type. Want that to be discrete, but want to run that somehow.

9. Needs to be willing to work via email, AND by phone. I am in the US, and use vonage & skype, so can call people during their hours (my nights e.g.) usually for free.

10. Needs to link to my facebook page about St. John (linked on the sample URL I provided above)

Payment will be 50% when 50% complete, an addl. 30% when fully complete, and the last 20% when the site content is handed over to me (perhaps in the form of an akeeba backup I can restore)

Have questions? Email me.
