OrangePolitics is a volunteer-run resource established in 2003, which includes community blogs, election information, and live online candidate forums. The site has been using Drupal 5 since 2008 and is sorely in need of an update to Drupal 6 (or possibly 7). It currently has 3,695 nodes, 45,805 comments, and hundreds of active users.
We are seeking a freelance consultant to upgrade the site and modules, and to help migrate the site from a managed Drupal service to a VPS account. In addition there may also be other opportunities including Drupal theming, developing additional features, or proposing new page layouts for the site.
Budget: $800 has been raised through donations from our readers.
Requirements: Experience hosting, building, and/or managing Drupal sites. Experience with SQL commands and database structures. Ability to find, read, and follow convoluted community-contributed instructions. Must be able balance independent work with regular check-ins, and take constructive feedback and direction from supervisor and possible testers.
Please submit qualifications using the form at http://orangepolitics.org/2013/01/help-us-make-op-batter-faster- by 5pm EST March 1 to be considered.
