Project Description

Project Description:
I need to upgrade the website to Joomla 2.5, change template and configure/add
some new functionalities.

Before upgrading I would like to
a) check all installed components and plugins and confirm availability for Joomla 2.5.
b) Propose upgrading/changing component to better ones (free or paid)

The upgrade has to happen without disruption to existing website (please provide
references to previous upgrades and an idea of the plane - for example use of jupgrade).

After the upgrade I would like to move to a new template: the favorite option is Yootheme Revista with Zoo and Widgekit.

New Functionalities
==============
>SOME KIND OF PAYWALL
Registered User: Registered users can sign up for newsletters and read up to 5 (it can be changed) premium articles per month + other website functionalities to be developed (for example being able to query a database of companies, access some special content, etc.).
Registration is a multi-step process that collects demographic information (managed via RS-Form?).

Subscriber: unlimited access to the website + other website functionalities to be developed (for example being able to query a database of companies, access some special content, etc.). It also receives print magazine and in the future a digital magazine swiflet.

VERY IMPORTANT: As a Registered or Full Access user you should NOT have to login every time you connect to the website (Facebook style).

>PREMIUM ARTICLE
Article in blog layout can be tagged as premium. To access Premium articles you need to subscribe to the magazine.
-----------
>BANNER SIZES: Banner size has to follow IAB Universal Ad Package Guidelines ([url removed, login to view])
-----------
>SUBSCRIBE TO THE MAGAZINE
This is a Paypal supported subscribe process (multi-step to collect demographic information). It can be done via RS-Form.
------
>STOCK TICKER
-----------
>CLASSIFIEDS / JOB POSTINGS
A self service tool to post job postings....initially free but ready to become a paid option
----
POP UP REMINDER
A pop up window after clicking few links on the website to remind to register/subscribe to get all the benefits.
This should not happen for registered user/subscribers (see above)
-----------
MOBILE CAPABILITIES ?
If you have any knowledge on mobile accessibility that would be nice.
-----------
We would like to minimize references to Joomla....we noticed that the
server gets a lot of attempts to get information currently.
------
We would like any change done to be documented for future reference.
