I need a new web design for my current site/blog [url removed, login to view] to be run from a php. Take a look so you can get an idea of what I need.
I want to get rid of blogger as its what I am using now and move it over to my own server that I have with Media Temple.
I need to be able to update the site from one location so PHP would work great for that. I want a log-in to update for myself and for future team members so others can update too, but with limited access that I can pick myself.
I gather online music contests and giveaways from other sites so I want to be able to update that easily on a regular basis with specific details about each entry.
I want to heave featured sections like I already do but want them to be controlled from the same PHP page. I need to set-up an email signup section so I can email all my vistors with updates on new listings and will be using PHPlist so need to set that up on my server. Also need a submit section so that visitors can submit contest listings to me and I can receive the info via email.
Also very important will be to set-up OpenAds on my server and to incorporate where those banner ads will show up on the main page. Every featured section with banners/images/links will have to tracked and will change from time to time which is why I need OpenAds. That also includes all the banners and images uploaded into the main section for listing the contests.
MOST IMPORTANT Searching capabilities on the site so people can search by bands, labels, title of listing or site. I want it to be very user friendly and easy to navigate.
I am currently creating the logo for the site, so that will be prominent on the page.
Once again take a look on [url removed, login to view] so you can see what I have, I just don't want to use blogger at all.
Whoevever I use will get different projects as the site becomes bigger so you will be able to update it with new features and new layout when the time comes.
