I'm upgrading my debate forum from version vBulletin Version 3.8.2 to Version 4.1.7. vBulletin technical staff will be doing the actual update.
The current site has been hacked and edited, products and plugins added and disabled, since 2003 such that there is much legacy code and, it seems, conflicts and bugs.
This project is for a person who will, after the upgrade is completed:
1. edit or create new templates so that the version 4.1.7 site, as close as practical, retains the "look & feel" of the current site
2. optimize the site for speed, currently the site is very slow for some users.
3. insure that the code is clean
Obviously, I'm hoping that the above can be accomplished such that the site's offline time, and disruption to users, will be minimal and brief.
