Our portal [url removed, login to view] is live and working, but need to upgrade it to the latest’s Joomla 3.X, basically keeping the design as is with minor adjustments. It must continue to work well on all devices, mobiles, PC, Mac, all browsers. Examples of requirements for the upgrade (minor changes may occur in the development process)
1. Menus today do now work well and effective (slow, you do not know if it is going to open or not) and some menus should be deactivated (where there are no articles). An minor update to the menu system should be expected
2. Publishing today in the different modules are a bit complicated and we hope to see a good improvement in the simplicity and logic for publishers with the upgrade to Joomla 3.X
3. There are some minor backend issues that should be cleaned up (RS firewall, Ameba etc. tells us about it) so all upgrades in the future, security and good SEO (google WEB master tools must be “happy” after the upgrade). So we do have a Google webmaster tool account and you can get a username there to see that all is working well.
4. We need an automatic update of the sitemap and robot txt etc. so Google and other search engines are indexing and display the site as well as possible
5. We should change banners etc. (will be provided). We will need your help just go get the elements placed and working well and a mini “how to maintain” manual with delivery
6. Other suggestions to make the site more modern, better working, more SEO friendly and user friendly are welcome. If you think we can keep the basic functions and the delay in the upgrade with a design change to a good responsive Joomla 3.X template we can consider it but because of time and capacity we are looking for a SIMPLE, QUICK PROBLEM FREE, UPGRADE AND SMALL LOW COST FIX/IMPROVEMENT
IF and only IF the chosen partner does this job quickly, effectively and to our satisfaction you will be our nr. 1 choice for a larger development later on and we also have a partner that needs to get a portal up and running quickly. This portal does have many HTML pages there (Magazine), has Joomla 2.X installation there that looks… not good. They need to purchase a good Joomla 3.X responsive template (maybe a magazine template) and tailor the template, upgrade the Joomla and also have a simple and small shopping engine. We will help describing the project in English (all is more or less done in Norwegian, but it must be minimized). Anyway; the test is to get [url removed, login to view] upgraded, optimized and good looking quickly. If you succeed with this in a short timeframe without a lot of interaction with us (we run a clinic and have limited time) as described we will get you more work for sure.
Please note; I do not have time nor will do discuss the project with a lot of companies and we need a simple clear offer based on what is written and the site it selves. I do not have capacity to communicate in great detail with many people because of my job situation. Either you answer the proposal fully and clear or we will continue talk with the ones that does just that.
PS. If you are good at both Joomla and Wordpress that is a benefit but not mandatory. We have [url removed, login to view] and it needs some small technical fixes (sitemap that Google index etc.). This can be an extra small job.
Thanks for understanding!
