I would like to create a website similar to all top. Importantly, I am not looking for a completely new development but to create a smooth design on a wordpress blog. WP RSS aggregator is a nice plugin to use or one news premium. Thus I am looking for a developer / designer to implement this. Please clarify anything with a question mark in your proposal.
PLEASE .. answer all my questions with a question mark in your proposal. I would appreciate if you indicate the cost of each functionality so I can reduce (or add as needed) I have limited time so please try to understand before firing questions.
1) System will not break when WordPress or plugin upgrades occur.
2) Any paid for themes, need to be one time payment only, no recurring fees. - A small exception might need to be made for the categories of [url removed, login to view] - Categories extension, if this will be used.
All elements need to look good together.
White background black text.
The front page will be it's own page aggregator.
I would like to have a rotating widget can be like the one on the economist (or similar) which allows for some images. (Please specify which plugin you will be using)
Search box linked to Google CSE (custom Search engine) (Can this be done?)
(I will create the CSE)
-Three column + side bar.
2 columns for the post aggregator
right hand side column for the categories.
If you have any ideas on how to display the main and sub categories
Recommend to a friend (plugin)

-Categories / The sidebar
There are 13 main categories and each one will have 6 or 7 sub-categories. Each Category will be 1 to 2 words long
The main categories will not be clickable, they are there for organization purposes
Each of the sub categories will be clickable and will be presented with an aggregator page.
- Aggregator page will include
A title page
The two column news aggregation
The side bar with the main subcategories
Each news aggregation block will have the website title. The Website title will be orange in color, (just like all top)
To specify in your proposal. Absence of these answers will make your bid less clear.

Current Server Setup
Wordpress standard installation has already been completed, this website sites in a subdirectoy over another.
Once the project is awarded I will send you the list of
sub categories and RSS feeds in each sub category.
The project will include a working functioning website.
