Hullo everyone,

I have a very complex MU site that currently uses seven themes all interacting without conflict or challenge. But I recently bought a (the only?) project bidding theme which has caused nothing but pain. So far, I’ve invested over 50 hours to get it working but it’s ‘give up’ time.

The purpose of the theme is to allow members to list residential building jobs, like tiling, roofing or painting, and have interested tradespeople identify themselves as ready and willing to quote. Think of it as an introduction service :-)

Does anyone know of such a theme or is confident they can build one quickly and cost-effectively ?

If you want to view my site to better understand my requirements, please visit www.theownerbuildernetwork.com.au

Thanks.

Have you considered one of those custom post type plugins that also let you create meta boxes? I think the hard part (for me) would be to design the listings page to display the projects and such.

The only app/theme that I’ve seen so far is from SiteMile.com. It looks pretty cool, but now you’ve got me thinking…

Did you ever find a decent Wordpress-based contest theme?

Hi halfpennystudios -

I ended up putting that part of the site on the backburner but am now resurrecting it using the PremiumPress employment theme with customisation. Just waiting on their responsive release to move forward.

BTW – our url has changed to www.theownerbuildernetwork.co

:)

Hi now4dw,

I was wondering if you ever got this to the bottom of this? I need to build a similar website where users post repair jobs for their cars then local mechanics bid for the work

I’m also really struggling to find something that fits our requirements, even if I can find something relatively similar, we would be happy to customise it

Hi James. I customised PremiumPress’s EmployeePress but I think you are better served developing your own theme.
