New Website (wordpress based for easy layperson editing) - Upwork

I am a school design architect with 20 years of international experience and the Founding President of my own company. Over the years I have collected an impressive resume of works including:

Three books
Dozens of professional publications
Dozens of innovative school design projects
Collaborations with renowned experts around the world
Several video interviews

I'm also frequently invited to speak at national and international conferences and want the new website to be a forum where people can request my presence at a conference, or they can write questions to me.

In a second phase, I may also use the site to conduct professional webinars.

For now, I want a really attractive site (since this is a design website) that will consolidate all my professional activities under one roof. I'm looking for a high quality website designer whose number...

WooCommerce functions.php fix (v2 -> v3) - Upwork

Having a problem with a site after upgrading WooCommerce v2 to v3.

There was a fair bit of customization in functions.php. Part of the code involved the following idea:

1. Retrieve session ID as follows:

$ses = new WC_Session_Handler();
$wc_session= $ses->get_customer_id();

2. Store custom cart properties in _wc_session_custom_...:

update_option( '_wc_session_custom_'.$wc_session, $cart_item_data );

3. Retrieve / store custom cart properties using filters/hooks:

- woocommerce_add_to_cart
- woocommerce_add_cart_item_data
- woocommerce_calculate_totals

There is some custom code used to calculate a custom price for an item depending on individually set options.

There are a few problems here, at least:

1-Hour NationBuilder Development Consultation - prep for large-ish project - Upwork

Hi there--we're looking for someone to help us do some fairly substantial custom development on our new NationBuilder site. In preparation, we'd like to talk with a few potential contractors about the details of the project and their recommendations. (As a freelancer myself, I believe your time should be valued--even time invested in getting a job ;)   

Mostly, we're looking to get a feel what's possible/not supported through the NB API, how "expensive" some of the development we're looking for might be (I'm a designer and am constantly amazed at how off my estimates on dev time for a particular feature tend to be) and what effect our customizations are likely to have on the overall operation/weight/performance of our site.

High level, we'll talk about:
- Theme building/customization

[REQUEST] Membership portal with custom options

I'm looking for a plugin to help with a membership option on our new website. Basically, we're running an Education program where we have judges and schools participating. I'd love to have some kind of member portal where they can log in and create their own account, lost password, and all of that. But also something where we can release documents to select groups or people, where we can post notices or surveys to select people, etc. For example, we'd just want the 10 judges to have access to a survey, but not everyone who is registered.

Does something like this exist?

WordPress: Simple:Press - Needs fixing for it to work again - Upwork

I need help from someone who is familiar with simplepress (a wordpress plugin). I used it for a long time and it was working until my entire website got malware. Since then, I had to restore my site with a very old backup file.
While everything else was working, the simple press plugin did not work and my old content is still in there. I need help to restore it.

The error messages that I get are as follow.
1. I would first get an notice about the error (which looks like this - https://c2n.me/425hTTB)
2. One I click on "Perform Upgrade", I get this instead - https://c2n.me/425ihKU

Let me know if you are familiar and if you're able to help.

Please quote me a reasonable price. Thank you.

WooCommerce + BuddyPress E-commerce Developer: Product Reviews, Likes, Notifications, Custom Types - Upwork

Get WooCommerce Product Reviews, Likes, Custom Post type to appear in BuddyPress Activity Feed.

Found how to do it in this thread here: https://buddypress.org/support/topic/display-custom-post-types-in-activity-feed/

Also found where the post type should go: https://codex.buddypress.org/themes/bp-custom-php/

The goal is to get BuddyPress and WooCommerce to interact with each other in these ways below:

1. If a user adds an item to their wishlist, then they can click a checkbox to also share it on their activity feed with the ability to add a custom comment to their post. This would be similar to how someone would repost on Facebook.

Frontend Wordpress Website Designer with strong creative and UX skills - Upwork

I am looking for another web design and development partner that has a STRONG FOCUS on creativity, user experience, and user interfaces, and best practices for SEO. 5+ yrs fulltime experience. I prefer a freelancer that is very detail oriented and spots design/code errors before I see them. Common sense really.

If you are detail oriented, then your workflow would be like...

- You are given an image that is 1900x768 pixels and the placement of the image requires 1700x500 pixels. Instead of just using the image and having the browser scale, you manually crop and resize the photo so it looks great in the area allocated.

- you will spend time to design around the content. You don't just throw text on a page and images. You will think about different ways of laying out the content so it's easier to read for the user.

Kanopi Studios: 5 Things to Consider When Executing a Website Rebuild

You’ve decided it’s time to rebuild your website. Research has been done, conversion rates have been analyzed, the team has selected a rebuild over a focused fix, and you and your team are committed to making this happen. One of the easiest ways of ensuring your success is to remain mindful of a few key things as you work your way through this larger process.

Regarding that term, “mindful:” one of the Kanopi team’s favorite authors is Brené Brown. She writes, “Mindfulness requires that we not “over-identify” with thoughts and feelings so that we are not caught up and swept away by negativity.” For the purposes of your website rebuild, I’d adapt this to be, “Mindfulness requires that we not “over-focus” on what we’ve done before, and rather remain aware of what’s important for our success so that we can focus on where we want to be.”

So, let’s get to it...
