All 'generic' type bids will be automatically rejected.


I run a start up volunteering organisation. We are a registered non-profit organisation looking to establish a website for our launch in September 2010. We will be launching in various universities and colleges and will need a Joomla (or similar) powered website with an integrating social networking platform, blog and forum such as JomSocial which provides many of the features we need.

We are primarily looking for those with skills in functionality and some design skills.

We will only consider you if you have experience of a past portfolio or speak to us via private message board in advance (if this is not the case)


I have a tight budget given that this is coming out of my own personal expenses given that we are a start up providing support for the community. Our budget in total is £650.

We have ALREADY PURCHASED the JOOMLA/WORDPRESS PLUGIN, JOMSOCIAL and MYBLOG - so we are ideally looking for bids £500 and under as we have purchased a majority of what you need for the functionality

We would consider more given experience, portfolio etc... but we would appreciate and most likely go with the most competitive quote given our circumstances and being a non-profit.

We require basically the design and integrating JomSocial and a similar Wordpress theme to a Joomla design that you will design. We already have a detailed brief and websites we liked etc...

Relationship with you:

We seek to establish a continued relationship with you, so you can support us with maintenance. We will also recommend you to our partner organisations which are currently six established charities, two of which are globally recognised.

What we are looking for:

We are looking for an experienced developer/team of developers to support us in creating a fully functional CMS driven website through Joomla (or similar) in the style of a magazine style blog with the functionality discussed below. This should integrate a blog, forum, relevant pages as well as using open source software so that it is easily upgradeable.

Colour scheme:

Our colour scheme is a deep blue, orange and leaf green which matches our logo, however we are open to ideas and creativity on this part of what you think would work.

CMS Systems:

We would prefer if you are able to use Joomla which would be a standard site with an integrated community through JomSocial as well as an integrated blog and forum which all can be integrated together. It was require more so a designer with an eye for design and skills in coding.

Essential functionality (please DO not bid if you are not able to do this)

Facebook Connect - already plugin available through JomSocial - we would just only require a little bit of editing to this so a screen also pops up after the connection so they can input their email address and name again.

Video content - We would like open source software to be added to enable users to add video/audio comments through a live webcam or upload their own. We do have an idea of how this works - we welcome your ideas.

Other important functionality needed:

Flash - on the main page and a little bit on a couple of others - need to have some experience of this

Forum - fully integrated - perhaps ccBoard (although I believe JomSocial already has this) - the comments and JomSocial should be integrated with this

Advertisements - Ad Modules to be installed - readily available on Joomla

Donation button - via paypal perhaps - Joomla again

Message/Chat system - may need some development on your side to create a chat system between users.

Blog - this would need the video content API more than anything else, this would be the main part of the site alongside the community part which would need to be integrated

MORE DETAILS ABOUT THE BLOG (WordPress integration):

We would like you to develop a Wordpress micro site within our Joomla driven website through using a multi user Wordpress plugin. This would have to be consistent with the designs for the rest of the site. Design work towards customising the Wordpress Template will be required on your part. The style we would be looking for would be a magazine style blog which will also update a feature section of our best articles on the main page which would be identical to the feature page on the Wordpress blog part of the site.

The blog would need to be a multi user blog (which is available from the plugin) that we will purchase for you on our own license Ã’¢ï’¿’½ï’¿’½ the budget is for developing the functionality and design of the site. You will need to ensure that our users from our community (through JomSocial) are able to comment on the blog itself.

ESSENTIAL PLUGIN REQUIRED: Please also note that we have a video and audio comment plugin that we would like you to install which is an open source plugin for Wordpress. If you would like more information on this, please get in touch. It does not require a flash server like Red5 etc... as it is a service provided through a third party. We need to ensure the functionality works.

Layout (provisional):

Home Page (integrated with the community, blog, forum updates)
About us
Projects (various pages)
Our team
Community - JomSocial or equivalent system
Blog - integrated with all aspects of site including JomSocial
Forum - integrated with JomSocial

We are looking for people with skills in:

SEO friendly coded websites
Creating fresh designs (not generic templates) - some skills with illustrator and photoshop
Experience with Flash
Experience with Joomla and/or JomSocial
Experience in integrating Wordpress with Joomla
Fresh design skills with the ability to reach out to 16-25 year olds*

*does not apply if you are only bidding for functionality.

If you have any questions, please get in touch. We are looking for those who want to establish a relationship with our growing organisation as we are currently in London, Sydney and Los Angeles so please bear that in mind when quoting.


STRICTLY 2 WEEKS - if you are not able to do this, please do not bid.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,
