I decided for my company to use x-cart as an ecommerce solution. But the standard x-cart misses out on a lot of things I think are necessary. There are lots of plugins and extentions that are good. The problem is that in the end I will have a site that is very hard to maintain, so I am looking for a more integrated system. For instance, I don't want people to simply enter a shop with 'new for september' products. I like people to enter a magazine like site with news about new products, events, announcements etc.
So, therefore I am looking for a combination between x-cart and a cms system like joomla. But the whole site and all it's components must have the same look an feel and people must not have the feeling that they are redirected to another site. But if someone orders a product, then goes reading through news articles and after that comes back to the shop part of the site... the product still has to be in his basket of course.
So, there are several things I want and it's too much to describe it here all. I just enter a few key words:
- Complete site design (perhaps based on an existing template)
- Integration of magazine/news/support/x-cart scripts
- Integrate plugins for x-cart and redesign some page layouts
All standard menu's have to become available in Dutch (main language), English, German and a few other languages. All articels, product descriptions have to become available in English and Dutch. Translation can be done by myself, but the used scripts must support several languages.
I have a list of standard existing plugins for x-cart that are more or less what I am looking for, but perhaps there are better ones than this or someone can programm it in a better way. I like the idea of the x-offer add-on from x-cart for instance, but the way it works could be so much improved.
To make a long story short, I know that making a bid is difficult based on this information, but I can give more information is needed.
Who has all the skills or is working together with someone so that you can provide me with all deciplines that are mentioned here.
