Please read the project CAREFULLY before responding. It is long and detailed but this is to ensure we get the right person / company and you fully understand what you are going to be doing.
***** If you do not have extensive experience with Joomla! and Gantry then do not bid. *****
This is an exciting opportunity to partner with a developer and one of the leading innovative schools in Australia. The new site design is the next stage in a multi-stage rollout of online tools and resources. We are looking for a partner who has measurable experience (and can prove it) and who will potentially be able to support the development of a mobile App in another project to be posted later. If we can secure the services of one company (this is likely not going to be suitable for individuals unless you are exceptional) who can develop future tools then that would be beneficial.
- Website design
- Template conversion
- Gantry Framework
- RocketTheme Templates
- RocketTheme extensions
- PHP, HTML5
- MVS framework
1) I have a template already developed so do not require a main template design. However, you do need to have excellent design skills and experience with Photoshop in order to support this project in the future and as we require amendments. We will also require amendments to the default K2, Jomsocial and Kunena designs to fit in with the template we have had designed. These may just be minor amendments but we are happy to allow you creative freedom to enhance these. It is ESSENTIAL that the K2 template is amended.....Jomsocial and Kunena are desirables but not essential.....if you have experience with Jomsocial and Kunena then this is a benefit.
2) The PSD template needs to be converted for use on Joomla! 2.5 using the Gantry framework. This includes ensuring that user frontend template amendments (colours, logo on/off, slideshow width etc) can be completed via the backend as with current RocketTheme templates using the Gantry framework. ***** If you do not have experience with Joomla and Gantry then do not bid. *****
3) You will be required to provide CSS and any other required amendments to the RocketTheme EXTENSIONS (such as RokSprocket, RokGallery etc) so that the gallery, slideshow, etc work like the RocketTheme templates and fit in with our developed design. In other words, the finished conversion must be of high quality and slick.
4) All code must pass validity checks and be cross browser compatible...including mobile devices
5) If you are a 'script kiddy' i.e. a new developer with limited experience then this is definitely NOT a project for you. I have already terminated involvement with 2 developers who could not handle this job.
6) The final template must be mobile ready. Again, knowledge of how Gantry works and your ability to code for different mobile devices including iPhone and iPad are essential.
7) We need clean hand-coded CSS from someone who has proven experience with Joomla! and K2 templates. It would be beneficial if you also had experience with Kunena and Jomsocial and can provide template amendments so that everything integrates with the main look and feel.
8) You will need to supply a fully functional template package that can be installed onto a base Joomla! 2.5 installation. Other template(s) for K2 should also be supplied. Jomsocial and Kunena base template amendments are desirables.
9) MVC awareness - you must be fully conversant with MVC processes and requirements.
10) You will NOT be required to set up any content, menu items, ACL etc as these will all be done by the school webmaster.
11) If you wish to place a bid then please send me a private message giving examples of high quality sites you have developed. Once you have done this I will provide you with a copy of the template.
Please post questions via PMB if required.
