WHAT WE HAVE NOW:
Our website [url removed, login to view] is built with a CMS from PHP and MySQL
We had a programmer install some features into the CMS, so we could login and enable them if we wanted. We bought the scripts, flash poll, flash event calendar, photo gallery. We also had other scripts made by our past programmer. The CMS has built in friendly URLs and automatic pinging scripts.
WHAT WE NEED:
1 - We want our site re-built with a CMS with built-in scripts for friendly URLs and Auto Pinging.
The website layout can look just like it looks now. So the work is really for the CMS and the feature scripts.
2 - We want to be able to go into the CMS Admin and enable all or just some of the feature scripts at anytime. To make it simple, the scripts for the features, (flash polls etc.) can be installed through FTP and then we can have a page in the CMS Admin where we can control what features are use in the website by using something like check boxes or something else that allows us to enable or disable the features.
Now, the polls script, and calendar allows us to make a poll for example, then copy the code it displays which can be put on a page in the website, same with the calendar. So that makes it a little easier.
You can see the list of features from the homepage of [url removed, login to view]
3 - After the site with the CMS with all the features is done, I want to be able to make a copy of everything and install it at another one of our domains. I will need to have very good instructions on how to do this, which will of course include the setting up of the data bases through CPanel on our server. Which is what we did with the CMS we now have.
Once a copy of this new site with CMS is install at another domain, all I should have to do is hire someone to make a new layout design and install it.
Don't want to use WordPress. The CMS can be open source, but it must be proven and of course Friendly URLs and Auto Pinging built-in. And have plug-ins to possibly use for our feature scripts.
We would like the use of programs like Ajax to make the site look and function better.
The site and CMS code must pass careful inspection by websites that check code.
If you have any questions, please ask. For our customers, we would like to contract out all our jobs, because we are getting out of the Internet business after 13 years.
