Even though this is a relatively simple job -- I need an Magento expert -- please do not bid on this if you only have a working knowledge of how to modify Magento.
I have outlined exactly what I need to have modified in a graphic mockup (ATTACHED). This mockup serves as the requirements for this job, along with any dialogue coder and I have in the comments.
1. PLEASE VIEW THE MOCKUP BEFORE YOU BID -- IT CONTAINS THE SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS.
2. I need to modify the '[url removed, login to view]' file (and possibly other files) that ships with Magento to alter the PHP code so I can add a simple shipping message (see mockup, #1) as well as a check box + form field to allow the user to enter in some special instructions (see mockup, #2). This new field data would be processed and included in any auto confirmation emails to the company and/or the user.
For your reference: There is a "gift message" box in this form already that works exactly the same (less the name fields). This may help you with the code.
Timing: I need this delivered soon, and I will submit your bids and ratings to the client for approval.
Access / Installation: The coder will not have access to the company's site, FTP, or server. If this workflow does not work for you, please do not bid on this job. I will provide you with any Magento files you need, but I will have to be the one uploading them to the server to check to see if they work. I will check them with the checkout on the server -- once it is confirmed that it works, funds will be granted.
Please review this mockup -- if you have any questions about the job that will affect timing or completion of the job, please ask before you bid.
