Description
----------------

I'm looking for a wordpress expert. This is a short project but I'd like to find someone who's good enough to hire for longer term.

We want to allow users to register on our wordpress site. That's easy enough with some of the existing plugins, but it doesn't feel professional enough. It would be great if registering only required an email address, as opposed to a username. As part of this, we want to be able to send rich-text emails for the login and welcome process.

More importantly, we want to provide logged-in users extra functionality. Our site is an IDX-system for real estate, meaning users will be viewing homes in our listings. We want to allow users to 'save homes' to view later. This will require extra tables in the database. We also want to allow users to save searches they've done for homes. At first, this will be a trivial saving of a search URL against their user account. We want to show saved homes and saved searches on a 'user home page' for each user.

Technology
----------------

PHP, MySQL, Wordpress, AJAX, git, make

Preview of Tasks

* Allow users to save homes, and searches

Workflow:
