We are looking for an ADVANCED developer to take on this project. Low bids and bidders with quality feedback will be favoured.
If you have little or no feedback please don't bother bidding. As much as we try & help out new Freelancers get started unfortunately this is a not a project we will be willing to do so as it is very important to us.
We are a UK company and had our website developed by external developers. The database is untidy, and they have taken the long way round most of the functions - it could be tidied up and ran much more efficiently.
As an example, our website & the forum are intergrated, but the user data for the website & the forum are held in seperate tables. These tables should be merged together and all the user data should just be called from the single table. These are the type of things you are expected to come across. It is basically a matter of getting rid of any unnecessary tables and functions and keeping everything as simple as possible.
Secondly regarding the admin panel, we need a simple but powerful admin panel developing to be able to manage the site with ease - this is very important.
The website is a file sharing site, so the admin panel should allow us to be able to do the following:
Edit all aspects of users data
View all users statistics (files uploaded, storage space, downloads etc)
Mass e-mail users
For an experienced developer it is not a huge project but we do not want a developer who will cut corners.
