Current site needs edits <[url removed, login to view]>
I have found a theme I like, but I need some help with edits/graphics and plug ins to make it cooler. Since the group is about social media marketing we need to have cool integrations of social media.
The focus of the site is on monthly events. and 2 larger conferences.
We're currently using a [url removed, login to view] site. <[url removed, login to view]>
I would love the site to have more images, and be lighter (white background) I really want To track the twitter ID's like <[url removed, login to view]> I'm trying to find out the plug in but would love your suggestions to make it work.
Other sites I like and are similar to what I need. <[url removed, login to view]>
I like the fact that this site <[url removed, login to view]> has different images for sponsors than the other pages.
**More Information: meetup page is the page I've used up to this point, but I need a regular site to be able to grow (not just the 3rd party site) **
I have plugged in all of the past events & upcoming events through March.
**Technology and Social Networking Site integration:
**Since we are social media focused I want to utilize some cool social media integration. (not the typical flair)
**A. Home page: I want to do a feature on the home page that highlights profile pictures people who are using the smtulsa hashtag. The [url removed, login to view] site used twitter search.
**B. On the About (Tulsa) page**, I'd love to maybe show the sentiment maybe using [url removed, login to view]
Maybe not the actual tweets, but maybe the :) or :(
**C. Tulsa Tweet Crawl Page: ** I want to see the tweets that mention #TulsaTweetCrawl (there wont be any yet) That is a June event.
**D. ??? Maybe add a twitter fountain** on the Conference and Tpage [url removed, login to view]
**2. A. Photos (Home page)**: We can incorporate photos from the Meetup Page. As people upload images to the meetup page, they will go to the website.
**B. For past events**? would love to plug in the photos from the meetup page for the specific event? if the Meetup Api allows. If not, it's ok I can just add text and links.
**3. Video: ** I'd love to show featured video. [url removed, login to view]
**4. Facebook:** We use a private facebook group for members only. Maybe have a way for people to request membership.
**5. Location: ** Show Map of checkins in Tulsa using one of the location based applications. foursquare, Whrrl, or Gowalla.
**6. Something New:** Quora is the new kid on the block, but I think they're going to blow up in mid March. Maybe have a Q & A section powered by Quora.

**7. Sponsors:** I'd like to be able to upload Sponsor Logos and they show up on the sponsor page. Would also like them to show up at the bottom of the home page. ??
**8. Need to add copyright at the bottom
9. Need to add Produced by Party Aficionado (and add link to [url removed, login to view]
My Vision for the site.
Cleaner look. (White background)
Incorporate the Social Media Tulsa Logo
I want to encourage people to Join via the Meetup site.
I still want people to have to RSVP for Meetups via the Meetup page.
Major focus of the site NOW is the Conference. The Conference Page should include buttons for Social Media Agenda, Sponsors, Speakers
For the conference, Members will RSVP and pay on the Meetup Page at a discounted rate.
Non Members will RSVP for the Conference on an Eventbrite page. [url removed, login to view]
I'm going to use [url removed, login to view] To create the schedule.
Creative suggestions welcome!
