Port from "Structure" to "Theme Hybrid" « Community

Welcome, guest!

Feel free to read the blog, browse for themes, or join the club.

The community forums are currently being phased out. At the end of February or early March 2012, you will no longer be able to post here. This is because the entire site is being restructured. Please use the main forums for discussions.

Port from "Structure" to "Theme Hybrid"

  1. Hello everyone,

    I've been a huge fan of Justin's work and have re-subscribed here because in the end, I always turn to his work when I want to get things done. Whatever I've used of Justin's, it's always worked 100% for me, without fail!

    If you remember me from past posts (quite a while back), I run, a site for music collectors who are looking for ways to add to, manage, store and display their sizable collections. Usually I just ramble on about music. I also have some high-profile posts which have top positions (#1 - #5) in Google (around the globe).

    I do not earn any money with my blog but am considering adding small ads to my site within the next 12 months.

    My site is a part-time hobby to alleviate my day-job stress.

    I also have a serious eye condition which simply doesn't allow me to do any extensive designing, layouting, tweaking, etc. anymore. I use all my online time for keeping my blog running.

    a) Job:

    I'm looking for someone to port from the old "Structure" theme to the new "Theme Hybrid". I use very basic functionality only.

    No changes, nothing added ... just a 1:1 port.

    a) I'm going to update to WP 2.8 this weekend.

    b) Plugins running on my site:
    - All in One SEO Pack 1.5.5
    - Clean Archives Reloaded 3.1.8
    - Google XML Sitemaps 3.1.3
    - HTML Special Characters Helper 1.0
    - No Flash Uploader 1.1
    - No Self Pings 0.2
    - Popularity Contest 1.3b3
    - Secure and Accessible PHP Contact Form v.2.0WP B20070414
    - Semmelstatz 3.1 (age old stats prog that does what I need)
    - Spam Karma 2 2.3 rc4
    - Subscribe To Comments 2.1.2
    - WordPress Database Backup 2.2.2
    - WordPress Exploit Scanner 0.4
    - WP Security Scan 2.6
    - Yet Another Related Posts Plugin 3.0.6

    Some of the above might be redundant by now and could be taken out?

    That's it, really.

    BTW: I'm not interested in threaded comments (or any new stuff).
    I just need a 1:1 port.

    b) Contact:

    If you are interested in doing the job, contact me via Please put "Job: Porting" into the about field. Thanks.

    Of course, I'd like to know from you what you would charge to get the job completed and how long it might take. It should be relatively easy, but I haven't kept up with recent changes in WP to be able to determine how easy or difficult it might be.

    c) Addendum:
    If I choose you for the job, you will get full access to my site to do what you need to do. Because images, paths, etc are in place, no graphic work etc. is required.

    d) Payment:

    I'd prefer to pay via PayPal. I hail from Germany, so in many cases bank transfers etc. cost too much.

    Looking forward to hearing from you. Please allow for a few days until I reply. I'm in my state capital for an important conference all week but check my mail regularly.

  2. Yo, Justin :)

    I didn't see that you also offered your work in this forum. I didn't want to burden you with a personal request. But, if you want to do it, you're in first place ... let me know what it'll cost me.


    P.S.: Not to slip on my own slime trail, but "Structure" is/was the first thing I was happy with (continuously). It lets me concentrate on posting instead of worrying about the design. That thing runs smooooothly and I haven't had a single burp since I installed it. I'm just scared of running into update problems along the way if I don't ditch the old code. I've updated WP regularly (also without a single burp on the Structure side of things) and just need to put 2.8 into place this weekend.

  3. Hi,

    If justin does not take the job, i can do it for you. Will drop you a mail on the quotes. Take care.

    Contact: /


  4. TJ,

    thanks for taking a look and wanting to take me up on my job offer.
    I'll await your mail.

    I'll wait until middle/end of next week to make a decision ... not to get the cheapest offer available (I'd rather have solid work than a quick'n'dirty job), but simply because I'll be out of town and reach for approximately the next 7 days (plus minus 48 hours).

    Because you left your eMail address here, I'll shoot you a mail from my zerotolerance address to open up a "channel" (= clearing each other from spam folders).


    Have a nice weekend!


  5. @Volkher Hofmann

    Just wanted to drop in and say I'm going to be too busy to take on any projects for a while. So, if you get a good offer from anyone, you don't need to wait around on me. ;)

  6. Thanks for letting me know, Justin.
    Good luck with all that other work!
