This site actually isnt groundbreaking, a universal business directory with a social front end and radius based service request system for business lead generation. but thats not the point, I am bound by contract to have anyone who works on the project sign the NDA. The NDA stops people from discussing ONLY details about the site, not about how they made it work, so in essence it wont make any difference to whoever is hired unless they planned on corporate sabotage anyway. As a professional who deals with subcontractors in many different fields I would never hire anybody for any project that “refused” to sign one if needed. An NDA does not effect the GNU/GPL because you can talk about what worked and what didnt, yu are just bound not to disclose BRAND specific information. I have already received quotes varying from $200-$2000 and i am taking my time choosing who i want to do it by evaluating previous work on similar websites. I am still looking for more quotes before i decide on someone, but i have exactly 7 who do not mind signing an NDA.
@bp-help i did see that link and read it but it is really beyond the scope of my personal abilities. The theme is not bloated, but its not a simple twentytwelve theme either. And AIT themes use WpLatte framework.
