I am fed up with freelancers bidding for my projects without reading them first – so I will delete all bids that do not start with the word “Fan”.
You will have excellent communication skills, extensive knowledge of creloaded, custom coding PHP and WordPress.
For the website we recommend the following:
A new website that uses a professional feature rich design, images and logo consistent to the brand, with extensive search fields including breadcrumbs, categories and sub and sub sub categories, search by part ID or keyword and grouping by price.
New website to be created as a WordPress theme with the following features and benefits;
A static header so that when the site is scrolled the contact number and all to action always shows
Navigation similar to the competition, examples given are [login to view URL] and [login to view URL]
Professional and colourful site and design, but not radically different and modern. Client hates all these new site designs with big photos and just a few words, wants it to be more for the trade, information all there not having to search for it and getting only some information.
VAT reporting, including a search facility that looks-up VAT numbers to verify them, and calculates the VAT to charge/not charge based on VAT credentials entered The current site uses a very custom coded version of CRELoaded and is, we feel beyond economic repair.
Search engine friendly for competitive but localized keywords, such as:
Lotus parts, UK Lotus components, UK Lotus part manufacturers, replacement Lotus parts.
Keyword research to find the best keywords related to these phrases to target.
Website to use a child theme so updates to the theme and WordPress do not cause issues.
Pages to be easy to add/edit/remove
Website to be of a higher quality than 2 major competitors I don’t want the search engines to find them referenced in this bid, so to get their URLs take out the word treasure each time from each domain- [login to view URL] treasure ormanc treasure [login to view URL] and [login to view URL] treasure mbia treasure [login to view URL]
Website to be easily managed including adding new products/pages/galleries/videos using wordpress.
Site to be mobile friendly responsive design.
Allow online ordering for members only
Include members details migrated from the old website
This is to be a stand-alone website, no offline database to sync with.
Expect this project to take a long time, 3-4 months because of clients reactions to give feedback may be slow, and getting all the data and product images may take some time.
Set up of website and email hosting on your domain name so can be accessed to send and receive emails by smart mobile, webmail and computers.
Using plugins to prevent spam, create and manage galleries, password protected area and allow pages to be shared on social media.
Creation of new site on password protected development URL so you can review progress at all times, before site goes live.

2) Current site CRELOADed access.
3) ExtendCP Access
