We have a very heavily customized implementation of Mambo. It has been enhanced to support member imports, advertising, event registrations, and reports. Some changes are made to modules, others are custom written. It is currently in place and working for the customer.
This project is to replicate that site into another domain name and making minor customizations for a new client. The names, email addresses, hard coded domain names, merchant information, color choices, and other changes are required to make it work for this second organization. The functionality will not change. However it wil be necessary to search through code and locate all the different spots where changes will be required.
Your job will be to:
1. identify and make all changes for domains, paths, emails, etc. These will be in the database and hard coded in PHP
2. modify colors, which will include recoloring some buttons, graphics, and flash.
3. learn what the custom features are and become familiar with how they work and be able to test them
4. make changes for merchant account data, which is also hooked into custom code areas.
This project requires strong skills in PHP and MySQL. It requires excellent attention to detail and testing skills.
This project must be completed, tested, and ready to go live by April 15th. I think this is realistic as long as you have resources available to work on this project. I will be able to provide some technical guidance if needed, however I really need you to own this project. I don't have time to babysit your work.
We expect prompt responses to all communications, fast project turnaround, excellent communications, professional quality work, and projects to be delivered on time. If you make me look good, I'll hire you again. Excellence is in the details.
