  • So I have a very DIFFICULT client.

    He contacts me to update his theme….We talk, he is a complete e-moron….I ask him for the admin details, I get it 7 days later….WordPress 2.1

    According to the WP Roadmap, 2.1 was released on January 22, 2007.

    Quick break: Did you know there was no WP release in 2006? (1.5 feb/2005 and 2.0 dec/2005).

    He runs a furniture store like IKEA.

    His photos are actual size instead of cropped for web.
    All his graphics are jpg. (You know, how graphics should be gif/png and photos jpg?).

    the annoying auto-start audio file he has on his site is a .wav file.

    Theme he uses is out of day, waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out of date. The website of the author is long gone (author’s last blog post was 2008.

    Oh yeah, can I update from 2.1 to 3.5.1 in an easy way? Thank the mermaids he doesn’t want me to do an e-shop. However he wants to do youtube channel, he wanted to do it daily, I convinced him once a week is better.

    So I have to do the following

    1) re-shoot ALL the photos
    2) re-do ALL the graphics
    3) find a new theme
    4) convert over 100 .wav files into .mp3
    5) get his youtube channel up and running
    6) Update 2.1-3.5.1

    How would you do this? How would YOU start? This “wonderful” client wants me to do all this in one week.

    By re-shooting ALL the photos, I mean delete all the photos of products he doesn’t sell and re-shoot all current products.

    Same for graphics.

    If you could include in the how would you do this answer a part where I grab a flying cow and drop it on him AFTER he pays me, I would be thankful.

    How much would you charge him?
