I have about 50 websites that I need to upgrade from Joomla 1.0 to Joomla 2.5 (yes, I know that 3.0 is out, but the templates are not). I believe that I used a free rockettheme template for this site, but I will provide the template.
SITE #1 - This first site is ultra simple, basically just a test of your joomla skills (you should be able to do this without any help). It is just a five page site, four articles and a contact page, two simple html list modules at the top, one list module on the right and a login. I do not want anything changed on the site. On the backend, I want you to install JCE editor, Akeeba Backup, and XtExplorer, This site used OpenSEF for SEF URLs, which may not be supported any longer, but I have also used sh404SEF, although I would be open to recommendations for something simpler. You will be installing this on a new godaddy hosting account.
SITE #2 - This site is also simple, but uses a Joomlart template. Same backend work as above, except we also employ joomlart modules that came with the template for content including ja_news, ja_login, and ja_tab. Also, with this one, there is an additional database and a simple php calendar ap (in a subdirectory, not part of Joomla) that needs to be moved with the site to the new location.
SITE #3 - Also similar, article-based content only site with a rockettheme template. I used mycontent to display the articles on the front page which may no longer be supported, so we need a new way to display articles by category in 3x3 grid. Also, this one I want a change, maybe a better banner area across the top, plus three new ad positions, a 728x90 leaderboard across the top, a 300x250 rectangle in the right column, and below that a 600x180 skyscraper.
I want this to be really simple for me. I want to give you the URLs and access to the backend and the next thing I want to hear from you is that it is done and I can point the URL to the new IP address.
Because I have more than 50 of these to do, please also quote me an hourly rate for other work, which will be part of my decision making process. We always need good joomla programmers -- we currently create hundreds of joomla sites per year.
My budget for this is about $100-120. Your skillset and history with doing Joomla conversions from 1.0 and with Rocketheme and Joomlart templates is more important than price. Other projects will be more complex than this one, with online stores, forums, business directories, complex modules, etc.
Prior to accepting your bid, I will give you all three URLs and have you confirm a milestone price for each site, at which time you can modify your price. I want no surprises after that, however -- this job should be a cakewalk for someone who knows what they are doing.
