This project involves fixing problems with a large and complex Joomla project that has already been built. If you aren't really an expert, please don't bid, because I've already wasted time with others who thought they were good, but couldn't do the job and only made it worse. You have to be prepared to really dig into the site and make it work.
This is a membership website with internal email, profiles, forums, a radio, contests, rankings, sales - many, many features that all revolve around connecting to the correct members.
The first issue was the way the website was built with the member names being used like this [url removed, login to view], rather than [url removed, login to view] This created a conflict when a new member created a same that was the same as one of the website pages, overwriting it.
So I hired someone to fix that. They changed the database - they added prefixes to usernames and other things. This only made thing worse as they didn't realize that there are about 10-15 things that link to each other and rely on each other to work.
I did not back up the database before they started their work, and nether did they, making matters worse. So now the website is as they left it - a mess because of the username confusion.
There are also 2 areas of the website that utilize Flash and have member connections as well. I don't think those were changed, but I'm not sure at this point. I do believe all the work he did was in the database.
Good communication will be very important to getting this job done as correctly and quickly as possible, since we need to make sure the pages are connecting to the right places. IM is a must.
If you are familiar with Volume - [url removed, login to view] - that may help some too, as a small part of the website is based on it.
I really need a thinker on this one - I doubt there's any quick fix that will take 10 minutes to complete. I've been told that much of the website was built upon an older version of Joomla, so if that's the case an update may be needed. I don't know. It's a mySQL database.
Money will be placed in escrow and released upon the website working correctly. Please do not just paste something. To let me know you read this, send me a message and ask me for the website address.
