This project is intended ONLY for designers and programmers who are experienced with PHPFOX Social networking script and its core code.
This project requires both PHP based CSS template coding and Web 2.0 style graphic design work so a team of professionals would be preferred.
I am looking for a programmer-designer team experienced with phpfox to revamp the entire website look and feel and create a more robust and sleek web 2.0 look with easily readable text and clean css.
I will be installing several Modules/Plugins in future so I expect them to work even after this re-design
so ONLY someone who is really experienced with phpfox ways of handling this process would be able to deliver.
The programming part would be enhancing the way blogs and forums are displayed, meaning the way threads are displayed and threaded conversations are displayed. If you know other major forum displays and how they look, you will understand what I mean when you compare it with phpfox forums.
I want to give the users ability to modify their profile designs which is a feature of phpfox but I do not allow them to change the header part.
I want the frontpage/login page to be more attractive with panels displaying latest site activities, posts, members, etc to attract new users, I believe phpfox blocks can be used to generate the content but I need the custom theme to incorporate that content in a sleek and clean design integrated into the website theme seamlessly.
Although I am aware there is a lack of programmers and designers in the phpfox community, I would like to see some of your past experience and projects to be able to give you the project and I might need to discuss more details before the project is handed to you. I WILL NOT pay everything in advance but I am open to escrow 25% when project begins, and 100% escrow before final delivery and release escrow on delivery after development and live-testing on terms that escrow will be cancelled if you are not able to deliver. I will be professional and document your delivery, testing phase on SL to protect your business but I do not want someone who is just 'trying it out' but delivers something which does not work when testing it on the development site.
Please I request you not to bid on my project if you are reading about phpfox for the first time and if you just 'wanna try'. Trust me, phpfox is a messy animal and what I am asking involves prior knowledge of phpfox functionality and its behavior with thirdparty themes and integration plus it involves some coding, extensive css and graphic design work.
I would prefer a fluid css theme which can expand based on browsers and resolutions like most web 2.0 site behavior.
I do not want hard-coded theme which will lose its code on upgrading phpfox version, I prefer the theme does not modify the core files unless it becomes necessary and I will need all list of files modified so that I can upgrade safely in future without losing the custom design.
If there are any phpfox experienced teams/professionals here please have a look and bid appropriately with a good indication of delivery time needed.
I have attached two Files;
a) Social Project Design, and
b) Plugins Required
There are two sheets in this excel file;
1) The sheet which is labelled as Paid is the one which has a cost.
