Expert programmers needed for Social Engine 4 project. Our base site is already built and up and running on a test server. Currently our site is version SE 4.0.5. We need someone to upgrade the site to 4.1.2. This cannot be done however by the simple upgrade package as there have been many modifications to our SE Core. So the upgrade needs to be done manually.
We also need installation of several plugins we have purchased. These plugins cannot be simply installed either as they effect the SE Core so they will need to be modded so that they work correctly in the site.
Finally we need PayPal integration on several options in our site that charge a fee. The programming already works as far as what the site is supposed to do once the payment has been made. The payment gateway however is what is missing.
There will be several other tweaks and mods needed along the way. We will negotiate with you on any things not mentioned above that we would like to change. As this site is an on going project, it is always evolving and changing and you have the opportunity to be a part of these changes.
