Dollar Dollar Bill is an organization dedicated to educating the public about campaign finance through data visualizations. We are getting ready our website launch but need a developer to write a PHP script that builds a menu in Joomla. Here are some more technical specifications:
The menu data is stored in a standard Joomla SQL database. The script would: 1) delete the existing menu, 2) add entries for the new menu, and 3) "rebuild" the menu, which is a Joomla-specific function.
The script would need to work through the Joomla Framework to manipulate menu data, which is stored in a SQL database. This project cannot be accomplished through a standalone PHP script that utilizes SQL queries due to the way Joomla's menu data is structured; there are table fields that essentially require you to use the Joomla Framework (unless you basically reinvented that framework).
I sought some help on StackExchange, trying to do it myself, but quickly figured out I was in over my head. There is some deeper technical discussion of the project here: https://joomla.stackexchange.com/questions/21720/how-to-completely-remake-delete-then-add-menu-items-through-joomla-framework
