We've got an old website (in standard html) and we're moving to a new CMS-based site. The articles on the old site (approx 4000 of them, all as individual .html files) need to be transferred to the new system (database/MySQL-based).
It's simple, but requires some time, and we're hoping some of you can help.
Here's how it works.
Old site: One page has links to every single news article ever written, and each individual news article is in a .html page. The workflow is something like this (please look at the two attached files - it'll be easier to understand from there).
We're using WordPress as our CMS, fyi. If you think you can handle writing an automated script that inputs the content from the old site into the WP database, that will be fine as well.
Anyway, from the old site ([url removed, login to view]), it's very obvious: you have the title, which you copy and paste into Field A in the new CMS, then below that is the date which you edit as Field C in the new CMS, and below that is the article content which goes into field B in the new CMS.
That's it - you don't have to do anything else, just repeat that process about 3900 times. I don't imagine it taking longer than one full working day, and time is of the essence - so the winning bid will be both reasonably priced and be able to deliver ASAP.
If you complete the project within 2 days, there will be a 20% bonus payment on top of the regular fee (bonus will be calculated based on the next lowest bid after the winning bid).
Clarification: The 20% bonus only applies if you can complete the project by Friday GMT.
Also, payment will be made utilising GAF's escrow. It protects both you and me, and that's a good thing.
