This project is for the design and creation of a Joomla or Community Server 2007 website. Please specify which platform you recommend, experience with programming that platform and samples of work.
The requirements are as follows:
Logo creation / Theming - Need a logo and theme that are unique, somewhat sophisicated, and modern. I am not expecting the world just something professional.
I think the site [url removed, login to view] has much of what I want in my site.
Homepage - the front page to the site needs to be 3-column, dynamic and incorporate multiple ads (including Google Adsense ads), a Custom Google Search Engine, and a generic search box for searching the site. I would like newest blog / forum postings to be listed as well as a robust menu for navigating to specific forums from the home page. Other homepage information is more generic in nature.
Remainder of site - apply theme to remainder of site ensuring adequate advertising space and both types of search boxes.
Sections - the site needs to have forums, blogs, downloads, photos.
Creation of sitemap, addition of necessary code for Google Analytics and overall design being friendly to Google / search engines will be expected.
I am relatively inexperienced at being a webmaster so a little extra help in getting the site hosted and running will be necessary.
This site is the first of at least two sites that I will want done. The second site will be more involved so I'm starting with easier of the two. Excellent work and communication could lead to work on this slightly bigger project.
