ENGLISH SPEAKING ONLY - Good communicators only - only very very experienced IT person with much experience with content management and user accounts as well as php coding and systems administration. This is not a difficult job for someone who knows what they are doing.
We are a phpnuke 8 site with customized user accounts/profiles we have registered users and subscribed users all the profiles for user type 1 are the same for registered users and subscribers but the subscribers have a larger photo allowance and access to other areas of the site. the permission part of the subscription system is fine but the user accounts and profiles have all been mixed up or are not being set up. Only user type 1 need fixing
user type 1 - actors - actors profiles
user type 2 - agents/directors/casting directors - contact profiles
user type 3 - photograpers/acting schools/theatres - contact profiles
What needs to be fixed -
When the actors (user type 1) register at the site they login and create their profile.
1. The accounts are not being set up properly. as when I search for the user via my admin panel it says they dont exist so need to have this fixed.
2. User type 1 profiles (actor) are rendering as user type 2 profiles (casting agent) instead of (actor)
The accounts seem to be registered properly as far as the user goes but they are not.
3. The profiles have boxes that the user type 1 tick they need to be all unticked as they are all ticked at present
This is a separate issue not as urgent that was caused when the IT person was trying to fix this above, he did fix the above but then must have changed something and now its not working again
Information to assist to understand what is happening
When I test and set up an account the account seems fine but when I go to my admin panel and search for that user it says they do not exist. I can login as that user, but I know that its not set up properly as the profile is the incorrect user type . The profile created is saved but when I click to activate it or edit it the page is blank and is a user type 2 which happens by default if the account isnt rendering properly.
Also I cannot change the user type as normal in my admin panel as it says it doenst exist, which means I cannot manually upgrade them to a subcriber when they pay externally to the site. The system creates a user type 2 profile by default if the account is not set up properly or if they do not choose a user type
I want someone who is in an english speaking country preferrably Australia as once this is fix I will use them for ongoing developments, but you need to be very experienced, dont waste my time if you are not, as this has caused much harm to my business. I also lost 250 users when the IT person changed something in the database. I have been very understanding but I cannot continue with the same developer when communication is difficult. I dont think he speaks english, although said he was in Australia.
I have a test site set up which I can update so it has the same problems and you can use this to fix the issue first and test it, if you think that this is best.
