I have a web site that is currently operating off a large number of static HTML/PHP files. Management of the site is getting cumbersome and time consuming, so I need to migrate it in to Wordpress.

So, the job then consists of the following components:

1) Install and configure Wordpress

2) Skin the Wordpress theme to match the current site design

3) Duplicate the existing functionality on the current site in Wordpress - namely the contact form and map sections - the map is a small PHP app that potentially could be just included via an iframe to keep things simple.

4) Write a script to parse the existing HTML files in the Archive section, extract the content from each page, and insert it in to the Wordpress database as appropriate.

On the current site, the content is updated daily, with the homepage showing today\'s articles, and then the previous day\'s homepage being moved in to the Archive section.

The Archive section is currently split in to groups of files called Volumes. This is not required on the Wordpress version, and all content will just be stored against the date and the category (the current homepage shows the 7 categories that content is stored under).

The content extracted by the script from the Archive section needs to be inserted in to the Wordpress database using different creation dates. The date is not included in the Archive files, and the file modification dates are no use either, so I suggest inserting the content from each Archive page on sequential days, from a certain date in the past leading up to the current date or thereabouts.

Timescale for this job is approximately 4 weeks.
