Finish customizing and modify Wordpress Vantage directory theme

This project is to finish the project that a previous developer could not complete. Please read through this information carefully before bidding. I need a expert in Wordpress and very technical Wordpress customization and modification. Also someone very knowledgeable in mysql and PHP.

I own a well established web directory that I am converting over to the Wordpress/Vantage theme platform. [url removed, login to view]

The site is currently built on a popular php/mySQL directory script and will need to be transitioned over to the custom Vantage theme.

We started with the Vantage theme and modified it heavily to function like the current directory. A child theme was created and about 80% functional. As much of the coding as possible needs to stay on the child theme, so future updates of the Vantage code will be easier, but some of the core code is already modified, Keeping in mind, most of the work is already done by the previous developer, but what remain are:

1. Small design/layout changes and refinements, including link display.

2. Modify the payment/checkout system the previous developer created to function better. Implement price table plugin shown here: [url removed, login to view]

3. Refine the link submission process.

4. Troubleshoot/implement the email system. Have the code from the previous site, and the code the previous developer did. Most of the work should be finished.

Please only bid if you are able to jump into a project that is already started and needs to get finished correctly and launched. Understand that the previous developer said this job was completed, but in my estimation about 20% of the job remains. So you are not working from scratch, you are only cleaning up items left on the checklist to get the site to launch. The previous developer was paid $500, so I would assume the remainder is a $200-$400 job. I would like to find a long term contact person that can work on my directories. I own several more than need to be also converted, if this one goes well. I am looking for someone at an expert level in Wordpress, PHP/mySQL, no amateurs. Must do professional work with 100% usabilty and clean code.


For reference, here was the original main checklist for the job, that is now 80% done ( you are not bidding on this part, its just for your information)

1. Modifying/customizing the existing theme as a new child theme to create a unique look for the directory. This will include styling changes, modifying layout, adding/removing elements from the existing theme. There will be modifications to the submission form and packages

2. Implementing a screenshot system, that will automatically take a screenshot of each websites submitted to the directory. You can implement an existing plugin if you can find one, or create a system for screenshots.

3. Creating a robust email system to do things like: send automatic emails upon new submission with upgrade links to upgrade to featured status, send auto emails to renew listings that are expiring, send auto reminders etc. (the renewals and reminder emails can be set up to run once a day on crons, the submission emails need to be send in real time). Not sure if the Vantage theme has email templates that can be modified. The existing directory has all these scripts in place, you might be able to modify that code for wordpress.
