This project is about conversion of our exsting site [url removed, login to view] in to a new template design and features with modules as per the design. The template psd file for the first page will be provided.
The current site is a Joomla 1.5.x site and in view of our new requirements of a multi level article tree, we have decided to move to Joomla1.6.x.
Project Requirements :
1)First thing we want is a new joomla site with all the data migrated from the current site, including forum(kunena) tables and Users [url removed, login to view] not reuse the current site(You will get the data dump from the current site at a later stage to import articles and forum data). We want a fresh working site without all the plugins, module thrash accumulated on the current site.
2)you will also have to install tag and other plugins that we use currently on to the new site and make sure that plugin data is migrated as well.
A small list is as follows,
internal links plugin, a flickr photo plugin,xmap,kunena plugin for xmap, kunena content comment plugin, a good Newsletter, Facebook page Box(style like module), autoTweet,Advertisement, search, Tag cloud,Kunena Forum,Google Ads,Image Gallery,Partner promotion,
Search Module (by category, see template for more details),Video player and gallery, Tab Content, Scrollable Article Link, Scrolling News, Forum topics for front page.
(You are free to suggest alternate modules to acheive the same purpose except for kunena forum, internal links plugin.)
3)We already have a wireframe(See Attached) for the front page which you will follow, we will send you the packaged current site for data migration once you have the skeleton of the new site prepared, you must analyse and migrate the data from the site dump that we send you to the 1.6 site
4) You will have to put the banner about forum on all the pages of the site and not just the front page.
5) put a side floating banner(like the current twitter floating image link on [url removed, login to view]) on all pages saying "Contribute to [url removed, login to view]". The banner should take the user to a contact form, where he/she will enter these values name, email, phone number and a radio button with 4 options, suggest something, join as a writer, join as a forum contributer, contribute funds, others and a message box
6)partner promotions section as shown in the attached Wireframe.
7)facebook page box as shown in the attached Wireframe.
8)regular search box as shown in the attached Wireframe.
9)We also need the institutions search section. I am attaching a xls file with the institution data that we have collected for your reference so you can get an idea about how we want the institutional data organized. We need a search box providing the search criteria from this data to allow a person to do a drill down search for institutions [url removed, login to view] drop downs will be
type of institution:i.e. MBA engineering medical, training etc.
service : Army, Navy, Air Force, miscellaneous
10)We need the event for the day section as shown in wireframe,(so and so military event happened on this day)
11)we also need a army unit/command search option the units are organized in following form, we would like a search box that allows a user to go to an article at any level of this tree. I want this to automatically use the Joomla multi level taxonomy tree to accomplish this feature. Please refer the attached file "Army unit categorization and search drill [url removed, login to view]" for the category tree.
Note: The current wireframe doesn't show this feature exactly as required. that will have to be done right.
12) The top menu will be styled and organized generally in the same fashion as shown at the link [url removed, login to view] with a few additional sections as shown in the wireframe. The admin access for the above link will be provided once your bid is successful.
