We are building a large new upgraded site in WordPress (Landscape child theme on Genesis) and things are becoming a bit more complicated on the backend to the degree that we need some advice from time to time about how to add functionality and whether we can do it with a plug in or need a programmer. Also, the web master has a full time gig and could use help doing things like setting up plug ins like S2Member so that it integrates with Aweber , and, separately, to create a discussion forum (possibly on BBPress). He could hack his way through this stuff if had more time, but time is short.
We are thinking that we could use a programmer that we could hire hourly for both advice about and doing the actual work of extending our WP site functionality with plugins and/or increasing as needed the functionality of certain plugins so that they work for our site.
So here's the question. What kind of a programmer would do this kind of thing? If I am asking for help in the Warriors wanted for Hire section, what should we be advertising for, and any advice on a reasonable rate?
