    We need some minor adjustments to our webstore, and the programmer that did the entire thing for us seems to be MIA as of the past 2 months. We only ever dealt with him in email and since we can't reach him through e-mail, there's really no other way to find him. There was a minor communication gap so it took forever to get the project done anyway....we'd rather have someone from the US doing the work. We're in Western NY, the closer the better.

    So....is there anyone here that knows OSCommerce/PHP/MySQL really well and would like to become our "go to" guy for jobs? Obviously paid...

    I have been trying GetAFreelancer.com but the only responses I've gotten are from people in Romania and India and I don't want to deal with someone that is in a completely opposite Time Zone and someone that does not speak great english as these projects are going to be too difficult to explain...

    PM me for details or post questions...here is what I have posted on GetAFreelancer....

    -------

    We are looking for a "go to" guy for adjustments to our current up and running OSCommerce store. We want to maintain a relationship with a programmer for minor adjustments as we feel they are needed

    Definitely need the following done:

    When a page loads, have the scroll bar start at a certain point on the page. This is done on our site when you click a product, we want it done when you click a brand name as well. Will explain in detail later.

    We have a page that shows all of our brands. When we go into "manufacturers" in the admin, it adds or removes them accordingly. We have it so we can turn them on and off and they appear or disappear from the site. We want this same effect to be on every page in the bottom of the page, the brands will appear as grey text links near the copyright on the website. Again, we have pictures to explain this further, shouldnt be too difficult once you understand.

    We have a section on the site that shows up on the right column of every page that we would like removed on certain pages. Can be explained further.

    In the back end, we have it pretty basic right now for products, we want to add fields for color, quantity, slots for item numbers and sizes: sort of like this

    SIZE ITEM NUMBER QUANTITY COLOR

    This is not firm, but we want boxes similar to this to fill in accordingly, and have the site negate one quantity each time something is sold. This will also need to appear accordingly in the drop down box for each product. We sell clothing.

    We need some adjustments to our invoices page, we moved and have to change the address.

    We want to work on a Quickbooks import...and possibly vice versa, where we enter shipments into quickbooks and are able to import it into the admin and it adds the quantities accordingly. This seems like it may be too difficult, but it's an idea we may want to do.

    We have a datafeed that works with Amazon.com as we also sell our items on Amazon. It needs some tweaking to work properly according to the back end adjustments that need to be made.

    These along with other various jobs will need to be done and we will most likely need minor things every once in a while. We had a great programmer that we cannot locate. We only dealt with him via e-mail on the entire site and he did a wonderful job and very good work, but we havent heard back from him in a while so unfortunately we need to seek out someone new. Not sure how else to get ahold of him and we are in dire need of this work.

    We can and will provide photoshop mockups with explanations of each job so that should make it pretty easy to do most of this stuff

    We don't want to count anyone out on work, but we would like someone from North America, working in the US or Canada and possibly close to Western New York. Someone that is easy to get ahold of and can do jobs regularly as needed.

    Please get in touch!

    A good place to look would be at http://www.creloaded.com/ and look in the right column. Creloaded is a different package, but its entirely built around adding features/plugins to oscommerce, so I'm guessing most any freelancer there could do work on oscommerce itself as well.

    Most of this stuff sounds simple enough, I don't think you'd have much trouble finding someone to do it.

    I'd be interested myself but I'm kinda booked up for the next month or so.

    Thanks. I didnt realize they had a freelancer section right on their site

    We are actually built with the creloaded software...forgot to mention that.

    I think we need someone to take a look at our admin and check out some things to make sure we're running okay.

    I just saw a message on there that says "You are not protected by a secure SSL connection." - I think it's just our admin section though. The last thing we asked our last programmer to do was take care of that and apparently he did not which is not good. We have steady traffic and customers...but I feel like business should be better and some people may be having problems somewhere....dunno.

    ....I feel like some general things will need adjusting.
