setting up joomla site - budgeting
how much will it cost to get some help with this?

Greetings, all,

I'm a reasonably technical webmaster who knows nothing about Joomla, but is trying to set up a new site using it. (My other sites are static pages and I've learned my lesson!)

I've been trying to scale the Joomla learning curve myself, but it's taking so long I'm wondering if I should consider hiring help -- more specifically, I'm wondering what kind of budget I'd need for this, and where to look for the best help.

The site's pretty simple. Would include the following levels of pages, which would need to be set up in Joomla and laid out

-top page/home w/navigation
-next level by geography -- about 10 regions to start (each would be similar layout/content -- with graphics to distinguish them)
-about 10 categories under each region (similar with distinguishing graphics, as with regions)
-unlimited company profiles under each category (as with regions and categories, standard template for these, too)

I have a designer who would help with the look/feel/color scheme, but who isn't Joomla-savvy, either; I'm thinking it would be best to get all the pages/nav structure worked out, then bring her in to beautify.

Does anyone have any idea what I should budget for a project like this? And how best to look for someone to do the work?

I couldn't quote you any budget numbers, but a good place to start looking is always the CMS's developer's forums or wikis. Find some of the guys who work with the software a lot and check out their sites.

Where have you looked so far? Have you had any luck?
