Before you consider bidding, please ensure you have a clear understanding of our requirements and conditions.
One freelancer has already attempted this project and we were obliged to terminate our agreement mutually.
As we have already been let down, we will NOT place any payment into ESCROW until we are completely satisfied the work is to our requirements and been tested on our server after which, full payment will be made.
Attached to this project are two pdf files which clearly show the template make up for the proposed website template.
To start with, the template MUST be an oscommerce type and we need all the php files including installation and admin panel.
There is no requirement for you to install this for us as we will do that.
The first pdf file “webpage home” is the index/home page and first page visitors to the site will see.
You will notice there is a slight difference between this page and the other pages we require mentioned below.
The web pages themselves need to be about 96% wide and not in pixel width, so there will a margin down the left and right hand side of the web pages and the 96% will take into account different screen resolution settings for visitors. We do not want a scroll bar at the bottom of the web browser hence the reason for being 96% wide. The vertical scroll bar to the right of a browser is acceptable.
On the home page, there is text to the right of the image that starts “Welcome to our website”. As long as you can get it to look the same as the pdf, we will add the text later.
You will notice that there are categories down the left hand side and these also need to be able to show sub categories if there are any. With normal oscommerce sites when you click a category the sub category appears underneath the main category.
When a visitor clicks on the category links to the left of the webpage, you are taken to that category. Attached is a pdf called “web pages after home”. This page MUST have the same look as shown in the pdf. It also requires the same links as shown in the header and footer of the page. Just a reminder that the category pages are slightly different to that of the home page.
On each category page you will see the category menu on the left, an image then nine images to the right. Under each small image should be something like, the product name, its item number, the price and a buy now button.
As you know with oscommerce, when you click on a product you are then taken a separate page which should be similar in design to that of what has already been shown above, where the full details of that image are shown, example: Item number, item description, price, buy now button. We may require “Lightbox” to be installed but that’s not a priority at the moment.
With regards to other pages such My Account, Shipping, Privacy, legal etc, these are usually the same as the main pages keeping the header, footer and menu down the left, but the centre and right are blank allowing space for the text to be shown.
Finally, the colour code for the mainblue colour is html colour code #C0D9D9. I’m not sure about the dotted background but if you can have something similar to go with for the time being perhaps we can change that later.
As mentioned at the very start, we would be grateful if you could take some time to get a good understanding of what we actually require.
If your bid is acceptable to us, we would also need to take a look at your work on your own server as you progress to ensure the requirements are going to plan.
We will also communicate with you via MSN messenger as you progress.
