We are currently running a forum with CMS as follows:
- PHPNuke with PHPBBv2
This is to be upgraded to the latest stable:
- PHPBBv3 with quickreply mod and if not enabled by default, SEO optimized features such as full mod-rewriting for topic titles and so on. We want users to find us on search engines
- Joomla 1.5 with shared userbase between PHPBB forum and cms
Important is that:
- All forum data (23,000 users, messages, 1,5M forum topics etc) are to be migrated as well. PHPNuke itself is barely used and mostly outdated so this data I will transfer manually to Joomla.
- Only supported plugins/mods are to be used because we don't want to depend on custom built features. Future upgrading of Joomla/PHPBB should therefore be easy.
We are planning on having this realised in Q1 2009. Please treat this project as a start for a long term relationship as we need a solid and flexible businesspartner.
Looking forward to your bids,
