Customer Question

I built a website application for a client a year ago. The agreement was to duplicate existing functionality of a partially working site. The contract stated I would provide bug fixes and corrections to the site for 6 months. 6 months have passed and the client is now claiming a feature is missing and says I must add it based on implied warranty. The old site is long gone and I can't confirm this functionality. What to do? He is claiming I have to work on the site no matter when he finds something, based on implied warranty. Is this true?

No, that's not true unless somehow there was language in a written contract that hoses you. The fact that a year has passed and he didn't ask for the feature is some proof that it wasn't there but what you should probably consider doing is having him list any feature that he thinks is missing and then provide proof it was in the original website.
