Website Construction (CMS-Based)

Project Details

What We Need
  • Development of a new website using a Content Management System (CMS)
  • Training to ensure Organization's staff members can update content and manage the site post-launch
  • Note: This project is for a website built with a Content Management System (CMS), such as Wordpress, Squarespace, Joomla, or Drupal. A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily (no coding required!)
Additional Details

Actually, we don't need a new website, we need help migrating some data from our legacy site in Drupal to our Wordpress site, then selecting search and display plugins, integrating migrated data with existing Wordpress theme. we are looking for someone who has experience in drupal, Wordpress, migration tools, theme files, etc. We have a test domain, but very little local technical support. Ideally we would like someone who is within 3-4 timezones of us. (PDT, California)

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have exising websites, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a detailed project description and simple mockups, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to do the project at all. We do not have funds to migrate this data to our new website. 16K is enough to allow us to serve thousands of families with trainings, support groups, telephone support.

We are a small nonprofit serving families with special needs. We provide vital
support and information. The data we want to move is our resource directory, a database of resources. This database is key for staff at our nonprofit in providing answers, is used by our community partners for networking, and is used by families to locate much needed help.
