PHP/Java/Wordpress Expert Needed for Coupon Website Theme Modifications
I am looking for a self-starting, enthusiastic, and detailed-oriented web designer to modify a theme for a coupon/deal website.
The site www.gorillabargains.com is written in php and is uses the couponpress template. (couponpress.com)
You will be responsible for modifying this wordpress theme (potentially creating a child theme) so it has an attractive interface that facilitates a positive user experience, and leverage modern design elements to drive conversions.
conversions occur when a user clicks an affiliate link.
A few successful examples of concept include:
retailmenot.com, savings.com, coupons.com, couponwinner.com, couponcabin.com, shopathome.com, and saverr.com
Major Modifications for this Project include:
-Eliminate individual "post" coupon pages - but retain the individual permalink for social media sharing and linking
-Add an Attractive Email Capture Widget.
-Add Breadcrumbs to theme
-Separate expired coupons from active coupons at all times
-Switching Store Taxonomy to Parent Category
