I’ve decided to enter the jungle, I’m armed with a machete and insect spray.
(Technically my machete is an antique Nepalese Kukri but it’s still insanely dangerous in the wrong / right hands)
Quote Guns ‘n’ Roses:
Welcome to the jungle, we’ve got fun and games
We got everything you want honey, we know the names
We are the people that can find whatever you may need
If you got the money, honey we got your disease
I need my site’s style sheet sorting out so it looks better than that basic out of the box Bootstrap feeling, I will keep this post updated with screenshot of the nonsense people send me, and yes, I will edit the names to protect the guilty.
I want to get experience of the Jungle, I’m already dreading the responses!
Here’s my request:
Hello, DO NOT MESSAGE ME DIRECT - only reply through this buyer request. I am looking for someone with Bootstrap CSS customisation skills.
I’m building an e-commerce enabled site with Bootstrap, Jquery, Jquery UI and Font Awesome. I can craft HTML and PHP myself, I can code and do all the back end and payment integration stuff needed. I don’t need a coder, I don’t need a website designing, or building, I’ve done that, I just need the CSS to make it all pretty.
I would like someone to create an override CSS sheet with a more custom feel than the out of the box Bootstrap CSS. I don’t want people to see my site and think “Bootstrap”. I need overrides of the text, backgrounds, buttons, badges, alerts etc so they’re not using the default colour schemes.
Please submit examples of CSS driven Bootstrap interfaces you’ve created.
I’m called Andy, don’t call me Sir, don’t call me dear, don’t call me Ma’am, don’t tell me you understand what I want, demonstrate it by sending me links to work which will impress me, don’t send me cut and paste stuff, you will only offend me.
This may be used in the forum to demonstrate how buyer requests work. You have been warned, be on your best behaviour as I will be taking screenshots and writing about my experience here
Please submit links, a quote and timeframe. I’ll let you know if I like you and like your work, and if I think we can work together.
I’m waiting for:
Hello Dear Sir, I am an app developer, I understand your request, I will build your e-commerce engine.
Dear Ma’am / Sir, I am unpronounceable, my dog is not well, my tummy is hungry, my wife left me for our brother, I need sell, I do your logo design perfect, I am a expart.
Please, please, please may I be wrong…
For those wondering: it took about two hours for my request to be published.
Let’s see what madness unfolds.
