The project is to create a Wordpress theme in a 3 column layout with a look and feel somewhat similar to that of eHow.com. You may take an existing template and customize it or create it from scratch. This is an initial bid; I will provide you a basic wireframe mock up. Pixel perfect mock ups will be finalized later.
One feature requirement is to support member accounts and login. Members should be able to upload their account image (e.g. 100x100px) and be able to post comments. The member logged in pages should also have the same look and feel as the site (I don't want signed in pages that look like the Wordpress admin console as it exists in many account management plugins).
The goal is to migrate my current Wordpress powered site from the existing template to the new template in a turnkey way (that is, minimal site downtime).
You will need to deliver the new Wordpress template and I will upload the files to my ISP myself. Your payment is dependent on whether the site works, as I have outlined, after I have uploaded it.
Please send me the progress update every 4 days.
