    @Hugo, yes well if you think the timescale is unrealistic, then it’s obvious that the budget us unrealistc too.

    WordPress will be installed by me, design delivered as a theme. So please tell me why you think it’s unrealistic? And please keep it on a professional level.

    Delivered as a theme?

    Is that a fully realised working theme? All template files and styles necessary?

    Even so doubtless there would still be a fair degree of custom elements requiring templates and styles.

    It’s an unrealistic timescale as there ought to be a period of further project spec discussion ( the above is simply an outline, the detail needs fleshing out)

    Then the project would get underway after it’s delivered another period of beta testing before launch, bugs ironing out, general tweaks and changes.

    If having to run up a theme from scratch or even modify one that’s probably a week at the least, but it’s more the general list of your site functionality that will take all the time and a bit, there’s more to all that than meets the eye and for each item a degree of testing and at the end of the basic build further testing to establish all aspects work.

     

    Is you launch date a soft or hard launch – beta testing phase or live site by 1st June.

     

    The schedule is too tight, most developers I know would agree in principle.

     

    Not so that it follows that if timescale unrealistic budget is – even if I thought timescale was realistic I would still be saying budget unrealistic, you need a good developer who knows their stuff, minimum approx figure they will charge on a daily basis is $240 and that’s the lower end of a decent freelancers hourly rate and this project is clearly going to take longer than ~7 -8 days.

     

    But the devil is in the detail perhaps you requirements are more straightforward than they seem, but even then  you will need to up your budget a bit.
