We have developed 40 joomla sites ourselves but we need help with this site.
We want to BUY as many GOOD third party extensions as necessary to insure long-term functionality. We want to minimize custom coding.
We may do most of the design, and will use a Rockettheme template as a starting point, but will need help to find imaginative cost-effective solutions. We do not expect all aspects of the wish list below to get done as we realize the development costs may be too high so we are only hoping to get most of this wish list accomplished.
Please send links of similarly complex Joomla sites. Do not include design or third-party extension costs or the filling in of basic text content or SEO, only your development costs to accomplish as much as possible technically. If you have good design skills or SEO, we may hire you additionally for that as well.
Below is the wish list written by our client. Ignore items which are impossible to accomplish within Joomla. If you can specify which items you CANNOT do, that would help us take your bid more seriously.
Better yet, please answer each point with the solution you would use. Ignore design/seo points.
