Open letter to MovableType Developers / Consultants



This note was forwarded through SixApart and should be hitting the Developer Network mailing list or Forums shortly

I am in need of a MT consultant / developer. I have a MT site www.geeknewscentral.com, it is firing on most cylinders but it has a custom CSS that has made it difficult for me to enable dynamic html and make other changes. The designer of the skin has been too busy with her own projects to be able to support us.

I have a small/medium sized budget and I am willing to pay someone to come in look at the layout, and tell me what can be done better or what needs to be brought up to speed. I would like a permanent relationship with someone that I can hire to pay for their time $$$.$$ to keeps an eye on new plugins etc and that I can rely on.

I would do it myself but have too many irons in the fire. If you would be interested in working with us, please send me a e-mail introducing yourself and some links to some of the MT work that you are currently or have done in the past. Included should be your rate scale and any minimums, keep in mind I am looking for a long term relationship in which the consultant/developer becomes a integral part of our team.

The individual must be willing to sign a NDA.

Task that I am wanting completed:

A top to bottom overview of the layout of the site and clean up of any CSS and MT Tags.
Implement several specific changes to the site layout (NDA)
Get dynamic pages working!
Suggestions of plugins that could enhance the site!
Develop a Podcast only blog in line with out current design
Develop 2-3 new skins for new domains (NDA)

If you fit that description and will stick with us for the long haul drop me a e-mail.

  1. Friends?

    Is it really true that Todd doesn’t have any friends? I really don’t think so. I just think that he needs somebody to help with his MT blog.
    I’d be willing to work with him, myself. I have a lot of experience with CSS and PHP (dynamic pages), but…
