I am currently searching for a freelancer to finish development of my website, which is built on Wordpress with custom PHP plugins/template.
The people I previously hired said it would be completed in 8 weeks, but 1 year later, they have done approximately half, and I need someone who can get it completed ASAP. What I need right now is just the most basic features of the website so I can start validating the business model. Many more features and an app will be added later.
The website is a searchable directory of fitness, dance, and yoga classes with user ratings and reviews. It is similar to Yelp or TripAdvisor, but the listings are recurring events instead of businesses/places. There are 3 types of users: general user, instructor, and business/gym owner. These user types can overlap (so someone can be all 3 types). The website needs to handle 100,000+ listings, and needs to be secure.
You can see the current website at Fitforia dot com.
Here are some of the major things that need to be added/fixed ASAP:
*As mentioned before, a user should be able to be all 3 types of users; the way it is now, they can only be one.
*The search results page needs to be redesigned with filters added
*The location search is not working properly as there is no database with locations connected to the site. So if I enter my zip code, 33160, it is now giving me an error that the zip code does not exist. This needs to be fixed
*The sign-up process needs several steps added to ask for additional information (with the ability to skip these extra steps)
*The review process is not anything like what I asked for. There should be multiple star ratings (for the class itself, the gym, and the instructor), and the review should not be able to be changed once it's posted.
*The ratings and recommendations given are not being used to calculate the % recommended or the star rating for each class and they should be.
*Sorting of reviews, search results is not working
*Mobile/responsive display issues
*The advanced search page requires some changes that were not addressed by the previous developers
*The database of classes, instructors, gym owners, is not being utilized where it should be across the site. Instead of pulling from the database in certain places, the developers just put placeholder text.
*The process for submitting a class needs major revisions
*The profile pages and user dashboards need major revisions
*Small design changes (checkbox style, popup box design)
*I need gyms and instructors to be able to sell deals through the site, similar to Groupon. So there needs to be a system in place where they can add a deal which will show up on the page of all their classes, and a person can purchase the deal directly through the site, which will issue a voucher number that they can take to the gym, the gym can enter the voucher number to mark it redeemed.
What's above is just the major items. I do have a full list of things to be fixed as well as the original specs, which I can send.
If you can please look at the site, check the coding, and let me know if this is something you can do. Also, how many hours a week can you work on this project? If you believe you can work on the website, then we can discuss more details. Please ignore the budget listed below, I am open to proposals.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration!
