    I have no clue where to post this. I understand that what I want is unusual and will require some coding. I'm sadly not in a position to do this. As a consultant and coder in another system, I value the expertise of others.

    My original post is here: http://mu.wordpress.org/forums/topic.php?id=5865&page&replies=1#post-35101

    I'd like to hack the code and modify as little as possible and I know, from a programming standpoint, this is best to avoid future upsets when installing more plug-ins.

    Can anyone interested please contact me by e-mail (xandria[at]xandria.ca) with the following:
    1. Is what I wish to do feasible?
    2. Can it be done without negatively impacting the solution?
    3. How much would it cost me?

    Thanks kindly,

    Xandria

    You may want to do some quote requesting as well:

    Before sending requests, I would sit down and write out very specifically what you need with as much detail as possible.

    Good luck,

    This is basically the first step we take with new projects. So if you have it ready in advance, it will save a lot of time no matter who you go with.

    Thanks,

    This is basically the first step we take with new projects.

    It's one of the reasonw why I got out of the web design business. What folks wanted never seemed to match up with what they had wrote out.

    From a designers point of view, it's butt covering as well as the basis of a to do plan.

    For the client, it's a schedule as well as something to base a quote on.

    Absolutely, Doc.

    Plus, once it's agreed upon, if the client comes back and changes their mind, you have recourse to make sure that the additional work required doesn't go unpaid.

    I'd agree with it being a guideline schedule as well. It gives the client a logical flow of how the project will progress overall. Granted, that doesn't mean actual elapsed time, as it could be a 10 hour deal, but your schedule only allows an hour a day for that project, due to other concurrent projects as well.
