Joomla 1.5 to 2.5 upgrade for barcodebetty.com
This is a UK based client specialising in barcode hardware, software and sage integration.
The website has been hacked several times and client wants to upgrade to more secure version. The client is happy with the design of the website and does not want any changes to appearance.
Original template was customised for the client and launched approx 5 years ago.
Jupgrade has been used to create a v2.5 version of the website at barcodebetty.com/jupgrade
The jupgrade process completed but there are issues with module positioning, menu display and correct formatting of the head of index.php
This project is to complete the 1.5 to 2.5 migration task, clean up index.php and ensure that the website looks exactly the same as the existing v1.5 instance.
I have experience of working with Joomla but believe it would be more efficient to out source this particular task. It would seem that code from the original 1.5 customised template has not been succesffully migrated by the Jupgrade automated process. I expect that this would be a relatively simple task for someone with better Joomla skills than me! The head of index.php is currently cut and paste from the v1.5 instance. Stylesheets and specialised files have been also copied over.
1. Get mainmenu with dropdowns working as in live v1.5 website
2. Modules to show in correct positions
3. A functionality of live website to be available in new v2.5 instance
Fully functional v2.5 will left in /jupgrade location for carry out modifications to content prior to launch. More pages may be added to main menu must have full CMS functionality. A static menu is not acceptable.
Website is hosted on United Hosting shared hosting. All log ins and passwords would be made available as required.
Once an acceptable quote is received, work can start immediately and completion as soon as possible would be appreciated. The project is already behind schedule due to the migration issues that have been encountered.
Obviously validated XHTML code and css style sheets would be appreciated.
Skills required for this project:
CSS Style sheets
Joomla Content management system especially migration projects from version 1.5 to version 2.5
