I currently have a gambling related website that gets around 1000 unique visitors per day and 100,000 page views each month.
I would like to bring the website into the current age as I feel some of the technology I'm using is a little out dated.
I've looked at Wordpress MU and Buddypress and feel that it's something the site would benefit from.
I've installed wordpress MU and BuddyPress on the site already (but there are a few errors) so I can test things and get the site correct before I change over.
I'm not 100% sure exactly what I want, but I'd like to get buddy press working on the MU site and then add a few customizations to the template etc.
I would like to have lots of things on the front page which would include groups, rss feeds, latest news and blog posts from my blog (the admin), comments, forum posts etc etc....
I'm sure that part is fairly easy to sort out.
Email me and I will give you the link for the site I'm currently running (using Website Publisher from [url removed, login to view]) it's got directories of pages in the nav menu, articles and news on the front page.
Ideally I'd like to be able to have this still as the main focus for the website but also integrate the members functions, blogs, news, feeds etc into the front page.
Could you let me know what the process would be for you to help me with this project.
What kind of budget am I looking at?
I would like to do this in stages because I've got around 700 articles to transfer from the existing site into the wordpress MU admin blog.
I also need to work with someone who understands the Wordpress MU platform and can explain it to me so I can customize various parts of the website myself without having to ask for support all the time.
Look forward to hearing from you soon,
