I have a joomla 1.5 site with a customized series of Question/Answer forms I created that stores user's input into a stand alone database (not Joomla's). I did NOT do this by creating a module or component. I am new to web development and just did the simplest way possible.
The Project: Securing the forms using Joomla features to accomplish this.
The custom app is currently working. It uses AJAX to submit the form and then uses a lightbox to display the work they just saved.
I need someone to both do the work of securing the forms (at least the first one) AND walking me through the basic concepts (using screen sharing such as GoToMeeting). To my understanding, the best way is to use Joomla's built in features for this.
If you are an expert at Joomla and securing forms, AND you don't mind connecting screens to TEACH me the basics, I'd like to hear from you :-)
After reviewing bids, I see I need to clarify a few things:
1. I need someone to CONSULT with to review my options for securing the forms
2. You need to be able/willing to TEACH me what needs to be done using screen sharing like GoToMeeting
3. I am in the U.S. on east coast, so we need to coordinate time to connect
OPTIONS I am considering:
a) start from scratch and create a component to handle all the forms (about 15 w/ total of approx. 200 questions)
b) "Joomlify" my current working script so that I take advantage of its security features
c) use other means to secure forms generically
I am really looking for someone to help CLARIFY MY OPTIONS and WILLING AND ABLE TO TEACH me
This is probably a 2-4 hour deal.
