I would like the site modeled after [url removed, login to view] (Not a clone just same styling and layout - I don't want them to think we copied them - it's just an example as we really like her site - more details below).
* If possible we would like the ability to make changes to some of the pages using a "Admin" area (Very simple would be fine) but we understand our budget may not be big enough at this time for that.
Here's what we would like....
We would like "Haven" written across the top with the following page options underneath it.
BIOGRAPHY (Just a biography)
MUSIC (this page would have a pic of the cd and the tracks listed with the possibility to listen (not download) so a built in flash player would work.
TOUR (upcoming dates and locations of where our band will perform)
GALLERY (Would like to be able to add photos ourselves)
STORE (Just need a page with out CD - we will be using paypal so we will simply place a paypal button here for buy now)
COMMUNITY (A simple pre-made forum would work here where people can talk to us in threaded messages - something that allows guest accounts as we do not wish to have every member need to sign up for a membership to post a thread)
We like the background that the Miranda site has, we'd like something like that only maybe rust color with white and light blue accents/backgrounds here or there.
Being that the site is for a new country/rock group, it should reflect the same type of old west theme Miranda has.
I like how the large photo on the left keeps fading into other photos (in flash) that would be great for ours as well.
We would also like one of our songs called "Thinkin' Bout You" playing in a flash player and showing the song title. This should start playing as soon as you enter the site on the first page.
Also on the first page we would like a advertisement for our cd that if clicked on would take the person to the STORE.
A "welcome" on the first page and "thank you for visiting" would be great (I will put some text together for these).
We will have out photos ready on or before the 10th of September (as well as the text for the bio, links, welcome, thank you and tour dates).
We will need the site up before 24th of September.
The server it will be on is a linux server and I will supply you with FTP information and URL when accepting the bid.
Please send us some examples of your work (Preferably something similar) - please do not send general replies, let us know you read this and that you reviewed our example site.
Our budget is only [url removed, login to view] as we are just starting out and are making very little money at this time. I know content management is probably out of the question at this budget but we are hoping someone already has a similar system already made that is similar to what we need and can template it for us to use. If you can do the site within our budget without the content management that would be fine as well (Please let us know when you bid) and we can always budget later to add something like that.
Thank you for your time.
