Calling all WordPress geniuses!
I have a very very busy, robust (and frankly a bit top-heavy) site that I'd like to give the FULL UPGRADE from 2.06 to 2.2.
However, a few of the plugins I am REQUIRED to use most likely won't work with 2.2, and some custom php edits would be needed.
Is anyone game to help me out? Would anyone be willing to take this project on?
I'm also very VERY interested in HyperDB to help improve the site, as my traffic grows immensely each month.
WP 2.0.6 on a LAMP server:
Dedicated Dual Xeon server, 2gb ram
This year so far: 1M+ visits, 4M+ Pageviews
- Admin Drop down Menu
- AHCommentCentral (may not be needed going forward)
- Ajaxified Comment Preview (will accept anything similar)
- Audio Player (will probably be removed in to use external tools)
- Bannage (needed, but doesn't always work properly)
- Breadcrumb Navigation
- Category Visibility (1.0.0b)
- Comment link target Blanker
- Customizable Post Listings (would want similar functionality)
- Democracy Poll (2.01) integral part of the site
- Email Users (used maybe 2x a year)
- Event Calendar - Integral part of the site
- Geo Press using Yahoo! - Integral part of the site
- Get recent comments - Integral part of the site
- Google (XML) sitemaps - needed.. using 3.0b7 now
- Inline RSS (kinda buggy, would take a viable alternative)
- Keyword Tags (.80) customized it heavily to make it work
- Link Trucator - to keep comment section from breaking the theme
- Live Calendar (may get removed)
- Nice Categories (inherent with the theme I use)
- Paged comments (must have, since many posts have over 500 comments)
- Post Levels (may remove this eventually)
- Post Query Accelerator (needed to keep performance acceptable, but will remove if 2.2 and HyperDB solves the problem)
- Quoter 1.1 - MUST HAVE, as it's used 100's of times daily. An alternative or improved code would be needed
- Related Posts - needed.. keeps readers interested in archived posts
- Rock You (used infrequently)
- RunPHP - must have for inserting certain ad-code in the posts
- Share This - included with every post
- Show Top Commentators - keeps users competitive
- Text Link Ads - in the sidebar
- Themed login and Register - keeps readers from seeing the static wordpress landing page, and away from the dashboard
- Weasel's login redirect / text change - see above
- WordPress Database backup
- WP-AddQuickTag - makes my posting easier
- wp-Cache - MUST HAVE to improve perfomance
- WP-MostCommentedPosts - another important feature
- WP-PostRatings - required
If anyone is willing to review my entire installation, make the necessary changes/fixes/replacement plugins, or whatever else, I'm willing to pay. Please let me know and we can get in touch with each other.
Any expert want this job?
