Thought out and comprehensive bids will have preference.
We currently have a Joomla website that is active online. We need to have some changes made that are described below. We are looking for someone with the Joomla Tienda Ecommerce Extension experience to make these changes. You will be working with us to ensure that the changes as described below are made as we envisions them. We prefer that you give us a lump sum price for the work.
The current site must be completely backed up so if any errors occur it can be restored to the current configuration. Incremental backups may also need to be done to ensure approved progress is preserved. There is currently a backup extension on the site that could be used. You would be responible to ensure that it is working correctly.
Please provide your bids and ask any questions in advance. You may price each of the 4 sections separately if desired.
Description of changes needed for this project:
The site is: [url removed, login to view]
1.)There are some problems with the current search feature:
a. It is not finding products that contain the words he used. When he put in “Die Machine”, nothing came up even though I have a Die Cut Machine listed. When he put in the word “Die Cutting” only a few items come up (rather than hundreds). When we put in “Border Die”only 11 items came up instead of 62 items that are listed with the words Border Die in the title. When we put in the word “Die” a bunch of things came up that were not dies (but have the word Die in the description only). The Search needs to produce the Title word listings first (with any additional endings (suffixes) on words searched (eg. –cutting= cutter, cut, cuts), then the Description listings secondary(eg. this product works with a die cutter).
b. Also, the *Search Results are not visible. They show up way under the main body of the front page so the customer would not know to look there. The Search needs to appear before the Deal of the Day or on its own page with just the Side and Top Categories showing.
2.) Tracking of Items sold:
Tienda is not subtracting purchased items. The last customer on the site had paid and items shipped. Inventory did not automatically subtract from total so I had to do it manually.
3.) Price to ship from postal rates to one price for all:
Please change all USA shipping to one Flat Rate Standard shipping for all. I would like it to be $5.00 per entire order (USA / Domestic only). I know you suggested this to us and now I see your logic. We want to leave the current shipping method intact, but make the one price as the selected shipping method for all items.
4.) Changes to Front Page (as per Attached Image):
a. At the top of the page, before Deal of the Day, I would like it to say
"$5.00 shipping for your Entire Order (1 to 100 items per order)*Domestic / USA only"
(centered and bold in a color that stands out on the page eg… Bright blue or Bright Purple color)… “$5.00 shipping….” needs to be large font and bold. “*Domestic / USA only” needs to be smaller font
b Words “Deal of the Day” in the box need to be in Bold Royal Blue with no ! (exclamation mark).
c. The Search button needs to be about ½ again larger than it is.
Leave all other colors as is (black on example needs to be your blue).
[url removed, login to view] out the word “Products” at the top, and place the side categories at the top : “Categories”, “Themes”, “Manufacturers” with a Drop Down Menus (subcategories) for each.
e. Take out “Welcome to Crafter's Edge” and “Videos”articles on front page and just leave those as a Category at the top.
f. Add “About Us” link next to “Contact Us” at the top.
g. Make the Deal of the Day presence smaller on the page.
h. Add the Products/ All Categories (with pictures) to the front page (as shown in Attachment).
i At very Top Right of page (above Search): “Wecome, Login” link to separate page instead of at the bottom.
j. Add to with Registration and Login: “Sign up here for Crafter's Edge Newsletter and Specials” and also a place to unsubscribe. It can just be a check box that will send me an additional email message about Newsletter subscription.
k. Add a Security Image to registration. We are getting lots of Non-customer / scam signups.
