I am looking for a developer with experience in creating custom Joomla components / modules.
The component will need to be fully Joomla compliant 1.0 and integrate into an existing site.
The admin backend should be featured to easily edit the component.
The component will need to be able to implement a custom designers layout and the developer may need to communicate with the designer at times.
This component will work similar to the process implemented at [url removed, login to view]
The process needs to work similar to the process of uploading of users custom graphics which will then be applied in production on a real product.
The component will need to integrate to the joomla user database for user logins.
The uploaded graphics will be of a specific requirement set forth by me.
If the graphic falls outside of the requirement set forth, the component should recognize this and ask the user to change their file.
The process should be broken down into steps, walking the user through the process at each step.
Once the file is uploaded, the user is given a preview of their custom image displayed on an image of the product being customized.
The user can view a larger version of the image on the product as well.
The user should have some abilities to change the size of the image on the product after uploading.
The user may have the ability to apply the image to one of several products but no more than 2 or 3 products will be available to choose from a drop down.
The user then will need to login or pay for the item through a paypal cart system.
The current website is setup with paypal "buynow" buttons which we need to switch to a shopping cart system instead.
I am looking for the new cart to be implemented by this developer as well.
The user should be able to create an account and "save and buy later" as well.
Not sure if this feature would require any implementation into an existing user component or if we can just implement this into this custom component.
Once the design has been submitted, and paid for by the user, the design should have some sort of status in the database or in the backend admin panel of the component.
This status will need to be updated as the order is ongoing which is why we should implement it into a backend system.
The image file as well as the preview with the image on the product preview, should also simultaneously be auto uploaded to another server via ftp or upload of somehow to our printshop which will receive paid for orders only which flag them to start production on the piece.
Another feature needed will be the way [url removed, login to view] shows the most recent files to be uploaded or converted.
Just a simple gallery or display of the most recently uploaded images which demonstrates to users, ideas and designs of other users.
I am looking for quality developers with some history or proof of custom joomla component integration.
There are some joomla pieces which may need to be added to the site that already exist which I am looking for guidance on.
I am also looking for someone who will have the ability to work with me on other ongoing projects and future projects if they have the desire.
My budget has the ability to exceed the $250 max but be prepared to justify your bid with previous examples and good communication as to why the bid is higher.
Looking forward to working with you!
