Setting up a .org blog on an existing site

Post #: 9
Ladies and gents,

I know someone who wants to set up a .org style blog as an extension to their existing site (ex. www.clientname.com/blog). If you have lots of expertise in this (for example, you make a living building entire Wordpress sites for clients), I'd like to hear from you. Here are some of their specifications-

Needs to be able to help us install the Wordpress for Microsoft Windows software on our webserver and customize it to our needs.

Will need a branded theme. Design of the theme within branded standards within branding standards will likely be your responsibility, depending on your expertise.

We need a feature that will update Facebook and Twitter when we post an article. We need to have the ability to select one/several/all of our various Facebook and Twitter accounts when posting.

We will want a plugin or two installed.

We already have experienced content creators, so we don't need bloggers- just someone to design and implement the blog.

Just reply to this discussion if you're interested. If you have links or an online portfolio where I can see some samples of your handiwork, that would be great, too.

I'm not qualified for this project.

But, isn't Wordpress for Windows's reputation bad? Wouldn't you run into future problems?

Why not simply use a Windows based blog?

For better or worse, neither the server type nor selection of Wordpress are my decision to make in this case.

Hal,

Is this a full IIS server platform?

If so, there is a package to install WordPress on IIS if anyone wants to tackle this.
