We are a group blog (100+ authors) but also a media network with gallery, music section, petition system, and some other features and we want our blog to incorporate all of these matters. We want to use wordpress but we don't really want to look like a blog, we want to look like something more professional, perhaps like this site: [url removed, login to view] (without the ads.)
Only patient people can apply for this one, we are looking for something really professional and are ready to pay up to $300 for the product if it matches our satisfaction and has no bug in any browser (especially IE and FireFox.)
It would be good if you had some graphic design skills as well.
You would have to be almost fluent in wordpress coding to be able to do this very well. We especially need help with some plugins and the specific way we want them to function on our website.
