Looking for someone to clean up my theme - need some redesign work done. (7 posts)

    I'm looking for someone who can help me clean up/freshen my theme. I haven't updated the theme in probably 2 years, and I've been having some problems with it (not working with everyone's platforms). Lately, I've been having people tell me that there is a virus on my site - and I can't figure out where it is - or what's going on.

    On top of sprucing up the theme - I'm looking to add a few new elements to the site. Instead of both sidebars on the right, I would like to make a left and a right sidebar - with the posts in the center. I want to add a few custom fields to the sidebar, such as "Top News Story" and "Top Celebrity Picture". I would be able to edit these fields myself, once the spaces are created on the sides.

    You can email me directly for more questions - and I'd like you to give me a quote for how much you would charge.

    It means two things.

    First, there are lots of errors in your WP theme's coding. That's what the 179 errors are. validation.

    Second, you are using an old version of WP (2.1.3; current is 2.3.3). The current version has corrections for security exploits discovered in previous versions.

    You need to upgrade immediately. It's possible your site was hacked. If you've got people telling you it's got a problem, I'm sure as heck not going to look at it.
