*** Only Accepting Freelancers from North America and Europe at this Time ***
Need experienced WordPress developer with direct experience with the Genesis framework to convert an existing html site to a responsive fully compliant WordPress Genesis child theme. Site contains 26 pages but the majority of pages will use the same template.
“This was an exhausting experience from start to finish.
This was my biggest contention with the freelancer. On numerous occasions I was told the bugs were fixed yet a casual glance at the site revealed they were not or the developer would fix one portion of the site while breaking another forcing me to be their quality control. This back and forth caused excessive delays. They were just the bare minimum and were not very thorough.
I was also told that the original developer that was working on the site had been let go due to these problems and the staging server they were using was hacked. While this may be true, you as a business owner are responsible for screening and hiring your development team.
I donΒt think the developer that was assigned to my project had a good grasp of html/css/js/php. They arbitrarily removed or changed links that I had to ask to be reinstated over and again, comparison charts had major formatting errors which could be seen with a cursory glance, numerous pages were not even touched like the contact us page. When I asked for the site to be migrated they simply exported the database via the control panel. The database was corrupted and still had their staging server URLS throughout. This forced me to handle the backup and migration to our server myself. Overall I was looking for someone that I could trust to do things right the first time while working independently.
Bid was on target however the time required to babysit this project negated any cost savings.
Based on the scope provided, this project should have been completed in less than two weeks yet took two months!
The developer misrepresented themselves as being in London yet the developers were in Pakistan. In the job description I specifically stated that I was looking for developers from North America and Europe.
Freelancer was courteous but that doesn't make up for the poor attention to detail”
“Thank you Hudoo for this feedback. I''m sorry for the experience you had due to our internal temporary issues. In our last 5 years history on Elance that never happened.
QUALITY: I''ve to say Poor Table based HTML was provided to start work on this project which was quite outdated and you were looking for responsive layout from the same. So it was obvious to redo the HTML of 45+ pages to avoid any issues on responsive layout. Babysitting was required because of requirements we are developers but asked to do a lot of Content/SEO/Marketing Tags to add in content which will take time obviously.
EXPERTISE: Again there was not anything related to php / js when you are talking about tables/formatting, the biggest issues in this project was content related (Iinks) which keep changing in your each message and Table based structure in the start. Secondly for migration correct login details were never provided to move the project, that''s why i have to provide you complete backup of the site with SQL file and at once you said its corrupt and next day everything was setup on your staging server.
COST: You offered almost 40% more to add in the cost to do the quite a bit of extra work but I said THANKS I am not concerned about money but your satisfaction and my repute is more important for me n i will do it in the same cost.
SCHEDULE: As agreed already there was a delay but still it took more time for redoing the HTML of 45+ Pages and extra content related requirements.
MISREPRESENTATION: We''re based in UK / Pakistan and as far as our concern we don''t have any need to misrepresent this. One project manager was always available on Skype to discuss and resolve the issues on spot but you were never responded on Skype within the decided time zones even.”
NOTE: It appears that their may be some confusion about this project. The freelancer will not be provided with 48 images to illustrate. You will be only be supplied with a few sample illustrations of both question types and then you will need to create 48 original illustrations.
