this job is from a friend of mine and here comes the description:
We are currently in the process of rebuilding our webpage at v e s t e - r i e g e r s b u r g [dot] a t and need a full redesign of the whole page as well as integration of a CMS in order to give us the ability to administer the page ourselves and add data.
The decision which CMS to use we´ll leave up to your experience to decide, but there are several things we exspect the CMS to be capable of:
1) Being template driven - for easy design changes if needed.
2) Being based on mySQL/php - for being usable on almost all servers
3) Allowing plugins or alike - in order to be able to extend the
functionality of the page
4) Creating clean Code - having xHTML/CSS code is a must for us
5) SEO friendly URLs - having seo friendly urls is a must as well
6) Allowing us to create different articles, having features like
[frequently asked questions, events, concerts, weddings - calendar]
7) Being very easy to use - the page should be administered by people
who don´t know much about computers, so the handling needs to be really easy
Now probably Joomla or Wordpress could do the trick, but we would be
willing to use any other CMS as well as long as they do what is needed.
ABOUT THE DESIGN:
Since this page is about a castle (as you can see by viewing our old
page) the feeling of the design needs to be very serios and some kinda traditional, expressing strength and ancient mystery.
We would like to go with a whiteish page with several shadings of grey and probably a dark red for highlight color (and another fitting color if needed for the design). Design should differ of course from the design we currently have, which we are not satisfied with.
The rest of the design is up to you, but be aware of the fact, that we would like to firsthand see a mockup of the design before we will give the job.
ABOUT THE FUNCTIONALITY OF THE PAGE:
We would like to have the menu at top with a suckerfish dropdown menu
which fits the theme. The menu needs to be adjustable by ourselves as
well as all the content needs to be fillable by us.
Additionally to that we would like to have integrated some state of the art gizmos so to say like e.g. images being expendable by lightbox or alike and stuff like that.
Copyright needs to be ours.
Code must be open source and WELL documented.
ONCE AGAIN: We ask you to give us a basic mockup on how you would do the page in order to be able to judge wether the designing you do is what we are looking for. You may upload that mockup to any of your servers and send us the link by PMB. We consider any bid without a mockup link in PMB.
