I am currently installing websites using the Wordpress platform and each install is fundamentally the same. It uses the same theme and plugins, but what does differ is the site name and keywords each time. This means that every time I start a new site, the *same* files need to be edited and the *same* plugins need changing/updating.
As a time saver for me, I would like a simple Wordpress plugin developed that I can enter the appropriate details into each time and have it automatically edit/update the corresponding files and plugins. Hopefully, this isn't a major task for somebody who knows what they are doing and is au fait with the Wordpress backend.
I'll see what initial interest this garners and then give more details out to those who respond to the project.

Hi all, Sorry I haven't been in touch with any further details as of yet to anybody. I've had some personal problem recently which has left me little time. Although this will be ongoing for a while, I do wish to get this Wordpress plugin started so I will be sending further details out soon before awarding the work. It seems a few have replied with a very generic message and I want to make sure people are aware of my requirements and that it is a Wordpress plugin I need. Thanks for your understanding, and in the mean time, if you do realise it is a plugin I'm after, and can forward any details of any similar Wordpress related work you have done previously, I would be grateful. I also realise that this may sound like I'm being finicky about awarding the work, but there is a good chance I can give somebody with Wordpress expertise and the right price a fair amount of work in the future...

I'm just looking at awarding this job so I'm giving more details so the people who have expressed an interest who haven't submitted a bid can do so.? I will award the job soon after.
The Wordpress plugin will need to:
? - Be able to enter various details in the WP backend such as site title, tagline, email etc.
? - Be able to populate/change settings in other installed third party plugins (max 3)
? - Be able to change a line of code in a couple of files
I imagine the plugin will simply have various sections for entering the required information such as:
Site title: [entry box]
Tagline: [entry box]
Code for file A: [entry box]
Code for file B: [entry box]
Setting for plugin A: [entry box]
I hope this has given enough information for all 'bidders' to make a bid so I can award the work.
Can everybody please make a bid on the information I have given, and those that have already bid (or indeed anybody), if you need any further information, please do ask now.
