I am a theme-based WordPress site developer, meaning I can do pretty much anything to a site as long as I have a theme to start with. I have not yet learned to code PHP, nor am I completely comfortable with in-depth CSS. I am trying to transition into doing websites almost full-time, but the majority of my potential clients want and need themes that are unique and custom developed for them. This is where you come in. This has the potential to become a long-term arrangement for the right person.
Terms of the Contract:
All themes must be delivered in 3 days after approval
Mockup is required by midnight Central time the day after request is received. Mockup can be created in any graphics program. PSDs are not required. JPG/PNG/GIF are acceptable; however, you must be able to create images and graphics as needed.
You must relinquish all intellectual and ownership rights upon payment
Payment will be issued within 4-5 days of final delivery
Mimic a specified Framework as closely as possible (I will provide a theme with this framework)
Payment schedule is $135 for completed responsive themes, $100 for completed unresponsive themes, $35-$65 for modifications to existing themes to make it fit the client’s needs (depending on complexity). THE TERMS OF THIS PAYMENT SCHEDULE ARE NOT NEGOTIABLE AND ARE INCLUSIVE OF FEES.
Themes do not require pre-formatted pages. Specific elements of the theme will vary from client to client. (I will be filling in client specific content, so you will not have to do any of this unless otherwise specified.)
Grounds for Termination and Non-Payment:
(These elements are grounds for immediate termination and nonpayment for the theme)
Base64 or otherwise encrypted code
Any unrequested/unapproved static links
Use of theme for any other purpose without prior written consent
Validation code that will cause the theme to crash if any other non-essential code is removed or modified
