Need a highly experienced wordpress developer for a relatively simple customisation task.
I am using this template below and would like to make the following customisations and enhancements
[url removed, login to view]
We will use 7 categories for a basic news type site.
Would like to be able to:
1. Increase the total content area width of the page by about 20%. This is to provide more real estate for the posts as some posts contains large graphics which will not fit into a smaller window
2. Remove the first column altogether (we don't need it) and stretch the second (posts) column to take up remaining space. Leave third column as is
3. Remove calendar and tags widget on the right column and remove the slide show featured animation in the middle colum (straight forward)
Now for the development work
(a) I would like the ability to set or define a unique featured post for each unique category. (currently you can only set one featured post for the whole site or all categories)
(b) I would like to add the standard wordpress RSS widget BUT make it unique for each category (not including home page). ie. each category will represent a different news subject (sports, business, world news etc). For each of these categories each time a user clicks on the category a different RSS widget (which sources feeds from external sites) will be used. (ie. so I am able to define the news feed source for each category on the website)
(c) be able to change the current tweet ID to something else (should be straight forward as the tweet widget is already created)
I'm after an experience wordpress expert because this would be a pretty simple job. There may be plugins available already that does what is required but only needs minor tweaking.
Would like to finish this ASAP
