I have an existing Movable Type 3.2 site that I never had time to implement commenting on. The site's templates are highly modularized and I want to continue this approach with the comments.
Basically, completing this project will require three things:
1. Creating a template module for the CommentItem (the displayed comment). Comments will be listed beneath the relevant article/blog entry, as is typical for blogs.
2. Creating a CommentEditor template module. This is where a user enters his comment into the system. It will be displayed beneath the CommentItems, as is typical for blogs.
3. Figuring out why the Perl/CGI part of Movable Type doesn't seem to know about the site's real templates/theme and getting it to do so (the static publishing part works fine, but the out-of-the-box commenting, which is dynamic, seems to load a different "theme").
Attached is an image showing how I would like these items to look.
I can provide some of the html markup for these items (the attached picture is a snapshot of a static HTML file I got from my designer).
I can also provide access to a functioning test site, which uses all the actual site's templates, where you can test your code.
Please bid only if you have experience creating skins/themes for Movable Type (preferably 3.2).
Pointers to exisitng MT sites you have done will be greatly appreciated.
My budget for this is ~$300. Payment will be by GAF escrow.
