Project Description

I'm looking for someone to create a content management system for an existing site. All the site and admin pages are mocked up. I've used fckeditor in the past, we will need something similar (if you are more comfortable with another editor, that is fine).

Each page has an html content area that this editor is linked to. Other functionality is new page/directory creation, organised in a tree hierarchy (in our template format). There are several elements on each page that will be disabled/enabled from the admin.

The flash is a photogallery with thumbnails, very straightforward upload and image resizing capabilities will be required, as well as dynamic xml generation for the flash photogallery.

Additionally, there is an existing shopping cart, for which we would like to be able to add and edit products from the "new" admin, as well as have the products placed in our new directory structure (tree structure).

Lastly, we will need a search functionality. We would prefer to use an indexing search, because the number of products is large, and we need boolean searches. There are several open-source solutions that I've located -- something of this nature would be needed to be installed, and configured.

PM for more details, if necessary.


-The winning candidate/team must have FULL availability if they take on this project. Fast turnaround is essential.

-Must have experience with creating PHP CMS systems, online html editors, as well as creating/implementing search functionality.

-Must be very experienced in PHP and mySQL. Coding must be clean and understandable (commented, english function/variable names, etc).

-Must be well versed in english, and comfortable with communicating electronically through email and chat.

-Communication must be with actual freelancer/s (project managers are ok as long as I can work with your team).

I work very closely with all my freelancers, as I did the html, graphics, flash, and know a fair amount of php/mysql. I've worked with a few individuals who gave me a great price and timeframe, but then turned out they were learning as they went, and I ended up holding their hand and doing most of the work. I am looking to establish a longterm relationship with the right individual/team, with steady work and fast turn-arounds. Thanks for your interest.
