This is NOT a time-critical project, so it could be given to a junior programmer who is not familiar with Joomla but willing to learn. Also, I am not selling this component (giving it to the community).
I am working with the the [url removed, login to view] discuss bot that was written for Joomla 1.5 legacy mode, but I need it upgraded to Native mode. Here is the source code for download:
[url removed, login to view];amp;Itemid=31&amp;func=fileinfo&amp;id=28
Here is some documentation on J15 NATIVE plugins:
[url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view]:Adapting_Joomla_1.0_extensions_to_Joomla_1.5#Other_changes
[url removed, login to view]!_1.5_extensions
Create a WAMP server locally, install Joomla [url removed, login to view] and Kunena 1.5.1b. Then after making the required modifications, install this plugin and make sure it works (it will add a line to the bottom of each article which links to the forums and indicates the article count).
I am willing to work with a new joomla programmer because this is something I am doing for free and it is only a modification. I will put 50% in escrow and release upon submission of a bot that installs without the legacy error. The other 50% I will release in two weeks after I give the code to kunena forum participants and have others test it.
