I am looking for a freelancer or firm with expertise in PHP and WordPress theme customization. Even better if you are familiar with the Enfold theme available at themeforest.net.
I currently have a child theme based on the Enfold Theme that I used for Homeowners Association which are membership based groups. The child-theme already has several functions that I want in the new child-theme I want you to create. The current child theme is combined with several standard and custom plugins for a value-added "template." All of the websites using this template basically look the same. Examples of websites using the current child-theme are in the attached more-detailspdf.
What I want to hire you to do is customize my child-theme so that it has the same functionality and features it currently has, but with a different graphic layout and navigation. I want it to end up looking like and functioning like this website:
I would like you to do whatever is necessary to modify the css, php, etc. so that it looks and acts like this website: [url removed, login to view]
**IMPORTANT: the Enfold theme uses the Avia Layout Builder for pages and I want you to accomplish as much as possible using the layout components in the Avia Layout Builder. You may need to create custom page templates or add special css classes, etc. I do not yet know how best to approach it and that is why I need someone who understands the best approach so that recommendations can be made and trade-offs explained and discussed. In order to have that discussion, your English must be fluent. AVIA Layout Builder Video Tutorials: [url removed, login to view]
We will provide a color pallette, photography, logo, a site map, design direction, etc. There will be over 100 pages in the end, however, I just need you to create one of each kind of page.
Please note all of the subtle functions on the website we are seeking to emmulate. Note how the main navigation with big squares, how they collapse into small rectangles when scrolling down. Note how on some subpages, the navigation moves to the left and has submenus. Note the responsiveness when the browser is made narrow, how mobile browsing is handled, and other functionality. As much as practical, we would like the website to be very similar to this one.
I am going to let the bids come in for a couple of days before making a selection. I am looking for people who can demonstrate they are experience and low-risk for this job. Therefore your (great) feedback, portfolio, and proven experience are important factors in my selection. Again, please let me know if you have experience customizing the Enfold theme specifically or other theme customization experience.
BUDGET: I am reluctant to specify a range because it tends to result in people bidding toward the max. But I am open to it costing more than the range I have specified. Just bid what you think it will take and be competitive. And if you are over my high end, be prepared to help me understand why. I am reasonable. ;-)
SCHEDULE: Please let me know how quickly you think you can deliver this project; pick a realiztic timeframe and then keep your word.
TERMS: We can negotiate milestones and terms based on feedback and what you are proposing. As you will see, I have perfect feedback and have been a member since 2007. I treat my freelancers with respect and generosity. I am looking for good, reliable people who communicate regularly.
BIDDING: These jobs usually get a LOT of bids, so thank you in advance for your interest, but please note that I will NOT be able to respond to everyone who bids. But all bids will be considered. If you have very little experience or feedback in your Profile, then save me and yourself some time and don't bid. Thank you.
Lastly, please be patient. I have other obligations/projects going on. I will respond when I can. But I am looking to pick a freelancer by September 1st.
