Project Description


I’m looking for a webdevelopper with some skills in Joomla Virtuemart and or PHP to develop some functionality in the Virtuemart process:

I have set up 85 % of my website:

- Joomla 1.5 and set up

- Virtuemart 1.1.3 is also set up

However, I need to include some additional functionality in the Check out process. I would like to develop and add-on . I don't want you to writte directly in my website. I want to have the possibility to installor uninstall this add-on

Step 1. Customer chooses its product (a service: don’t need to be physically shipped)

Step 2. He fills a “specification” form related to this service (1 service = 1 form) in order to provide some specifications (text, date, e-mail, phone, text area). That means that this filled form will be attached to the order (notably in the part account maintenance where the client can see its order but also in the back end and in the confirmation e-mail send to the customer).

Currently, one solution, since the product doesn’t need to be shipped, is to use the “shipping address” form and to transform it in “specification” form. The problem is that it doesn’t allow personalizing this form for every service. I need to use a basic form, and it is not good because my services are different, hence I need specific form for every service.

Different forms will need to be created and having the capacity to be modified.

The best way would be to integrate a component like Jforms, Artform or Chronoform in order the administrator can define every form for every product. Another solution is to add some field in the “User field manager” and attribute those field to the product type.

This way, in the checkout process of Virtuemart the customer would have the “specification” form related to its service.

3. The customer can upload some files after having filled the “specification” form

The best way would be to implement and integrate a component like JFlash uploader. This way, the customer can manage its files himself on its account (add, delete) and attach its to its order.

For this part, It would be nice if the files were uploaded on a specific folder on the FTP (1 order = 1 folder) in order the administrator can find easily the files linked to the order. A link in the back end on the order details would be also nice.

A documentation will be required also
