Please do not bid if you do not have any feedback, wordpress theme experience is essential, and a knowledge of ebay bidding engines is desirable.
If you put the words "auction theme changes" in your first sentence I will guarantee that I will read the rest
Change wordpress auction theme bidding engine and some small coding fixes and additions.
We have set up a dummy testing server running a Responsive WordPress Auction Theme Plugin from Sitemile
[url removed, login to view]
We are looking for a long term coding relationship, to develop this plugin to a more useable piece of code, we have approached the developer who is unfortunately unable to assist us in a timely manner.
We have created a childtheme with mainly graphical changes to make the site look like a clone of our website which has been running wordpress for several years.
The bidding engine of sitemile auction theme is not useable and quirky so we want to change it to be more like ebay.
We are a single seller auction site, who does not accept payment via the theme, so most of the themes functions are not needed/used.
It should be impossible for a bidder to bid against himself. (at the moment the system lets you bid against yourself)
"The 'Current bid' should be held by the highest bidder, and automatically be raised to one bid increment above the top bid of the person who is in second place in the auction."
This is known as proxy bidding. ( at the moment the system has maximum bidding enabled but it will only jump one bid increment)
See the quote below from Ebay about proxy bidding;
“Just enter your maximum bid in the box.
Ebay will then automatically bid for you in increments up to your maximum”
The reserve should behave like an opposing bidder.
The “reserve” should automatically bid against any bids placed below the reserve and be the highest bidder until the reserve price is met or beaten.
The page should display “Reserve price met” when the reserve price is reached or beaten by a bidder, and not only after this reserve price has been beaten.
‘Current bid’ should display the value of the highest bid, even before the reserve has been met and that highest bid is bid by the reserve.
Posting/ editing an auction
Add startime, similar to end time to each auction, the place bid button and form field in the single auction should not be visible until the startime has reached,
There is a bug at the moment that when selecting the end time you can only select the day not an hour, make this so that both can select hour and that all auction are visible to be viewed until startime is reached.
All changes should be in the childtheme.
Stage payments can be agreed upon and made quickly, we are looking for excellent english and communication skills, and a speedy delivery, quote or payment per hour.
We can assist you quickly to the functions needed to be changed as we are now very familiar with the code having had to fix and find most of the problems ourselves.
