Reliable and creative web designer/PHP expert to create a complete UNIQUE skin for website with logo update, site name is trademarked, Based on PHP Probid software.
You will write all verbiage pertaining to the site as in welcome message ect...As part of the site [url removed, login to view] site is in place and fully functional at this time. Looking for a combination of design features as seen in...[url removed, login to view] & [url removed, login to view] & [url removed, login to view]
Php coding to remove the right side and apply it to the left, see the above site for examples. Functional control over the areas moved must be retained in the admin control panel. all individual auction/sale items should have the option to be followed not only as a watch it now item but with a email notification that auction will end in 24 hours
Need increase thumbnail size on the auction listings with a "magnifying image" such as used on eBay for auction page listings and in categories and searched. this function would have to be add to the users options in the auction build process and be linked to the admin to turn off and on and be a optional cost item such as the use of a Featured Auction.
The individual auction template needs to be adjusted to mimic the page lay out of eBay. Individual auction page to resemble the lay out in clean lines and no categories on the left side. When viewing a view auction lists page there should be a "related searches" suggested and a option to include the title and description. Page should be tab as in eBay's to allow buyers to view the item and then click the tab to see the shipping and payment info ( not as it is now where you have to scroll down)
Categories on the LEFT column of the view auctions page should be basically the same as eBay i.e.
REFINED SEARCHES,Price,Condition,Seller,PREFERENCES,Buying format,Show only,Location,Distance,Section for matching Stores and Recently viewed items
In the store view pages categories must be moved in the layout so they do not redundantly appear twice This means only on the left. The example would be similar to eBay's auction page for stores list the one line main category at the top that you would see ( in but the sub categories to the side and still retain all the functionality(see eBay for and an example)..
The initial landing home page must be similar eBay in the aspect that you don't view the auctions when you initially visit the page. The home page should encompass that type of design. Also on the home page box's should be set up to capture the different related items to each USER i.e. (not the seller)
My Recent activities and promotion i.e. "from our Sellers" being a sample of 2 0r 3 items with a link to more. buy it now promotional box, daily deals ect,....(View [url removed, login to view] for example )
Must have categories with same type functionality as eBay's that will disappear and that the search within and sub categories are viewed on the left side instead of the way php probid has them along side the stores. The fact that any part of the categories appear more than once on the page is redundant and needs to be redesigned.
Any other specific alterations will be discussed before beginning the project. Must be familiar with php probid software, php coding and graphic design. A link of your portfolio is a MUST.
Ideally, the project will be completed in no more than 10 working days. PLEASE ASK QUESTIONS if you are unclear about any aspect of this job. Web design ideas MUST be agreed upon before implementation. If questions or problems arise- notification is expected. Frequent contact via phone, chat or email is MANDATORY to insure project is on correct development path. How close can you recode the php pro bid to mimic eBay but with a better graphic design ? Can you build a better "wheel"? with a better graphic design?
initial payment will be based on escrow milestone payments. Payments released from escrow AFTER design is agreed upon and installed. Balance will be paid upon acceptance of the completed 100% fully functional website without bugs or mysql injection vulnerabilities. Escrow will apply and payment will be made only after Website is up and running without problems. Opportunity for bonus for new logo design & expedited completion
Interest on being available for further development on the same site and troubleshooter desirable.
