    Hello guys.

    First, some history: I have a small news website here in Brazil. And my theme is WP-DRUDGE, from the ProperWeb.

    I really like the Drudge Style and etecetera, but now comes the problem: ProperWeb was sold to some unknown company to a random guys without websites, contact info, etc. Now my theme is doomed to fade away in the annals of the history in the internet.

    I don't have anymore support in their Forum (nobody appears to help people) and the site is not updated since 2017.

    I have some small bugs (like date showing wrong), some bugs with images (showing only one in the category page) and some minor things.

    I need some small customization too, like creating a few new settings (like when click in a headline in the main page, redirect to another link) and other stuffs.

    I need a small re-pagination of the style, creating a more "modern" Drudge style too, but this is not the main issue.

    So, i need someone to pick my theme, do the magical voodo programming thing with my money and that's it.

    - I need the price round, can pay 50% in the beginning and 50% in the end of the job;
    - The job can be due in parts (first bugs, second new features, third repagination if the job is did nice);
    - After finish, free of bugs, with all original aspects perfectly working;
    - And someone i can really trust to make this.

    I really need to save my Wordpress Theme.

    And before anyone ask, i don't go to any other themes because all they lack of personality. All too generic (ThemeForest?) and all to the same old thing.

    Thanks.

    Hi palhanowpalhanow - I work with WordPress and would be delighted to assist.
    In regards to your comment above though - I disagree. I would actually recommend that you choose a WP framework that has a proven record of being supported with updates to fix any bugs and/or add functionality enhancements. The reason being: Your current theme is no longer supported and may present a bit of a security risk. As for themes 'lacking personality' ... An experienced design would be able to create an updated/modern upgrade for you, redesigning your theme on a trusted and more robust framework.

    Feel free to PM me if you might be interested in what ideas I have for your site.
    Thanks! And thank you we_are_borgwe_are_borg for the mention ;)

    Oh! Sorry for the delay replying this thread.

    I did a small/medium surgery on my mouth and I'm on the bed for the next weeks.

    So, let's talk:

    Thanks for your reply and interest, fixer.

    I don't think the configuration is the problem. The "date issue" just happened without warning. My WP configs is showing exactly the date format that i want, but the post page is not.

    And the images problem, well, this can be, because i use the plugin "Featured External Images" and there is a lot of config inside that i don't want to mess up.

    What you need for fix my things? Admin Login?

    Btw, i don't have access to the server, i don't know if you need it. Just basic CP Panel Options.

    Oh! Thanks for the input.

    I love so much this theme and I'm so attached to him (was my first when i launched the site), because work for my public. That's why I'm thinking just in make some big edits on him with a professional.

    I already tried to buy some themes on themeforest, but they just have the same 'lack of personality' and generic feeling:

    The Fox: https://themeforest.net/item/the-fox-contemporary-magazine-theme-for-creators/11103012

    and, my last one, Fine Globe: https://themeforest.net/item/fineglobe-classic-newspaper-theme/15971483

    The Fine Globe was the most "what i need it" for my site, but man... They use Visual Composer and it's a VERY BIG MESS to configure the theme the way i want. A lot of bugs too and because of this, i deleted the theme and got back to the Drudge Style.

    Do you have any insights for my website, following this Drudge and FineGlobe style? I want a newspaper felling with control on where i put the headlines.

    Like i said, i can pay if we can reach a business agreement. Your price table for this service is around how much?

    I still recommend going with a new, supported & more robust framework than that of your current one.
    Like I said - An experienced designer would be able to customize basically any theme framework to mimic the sort of look that you currently have.
    I'm doing a wee bit of research and will PM you a bit later this afternoon in regards to if I'll be able to assist with the project.
    Thanks!
