I am looking for a website designer/developer with advanced skills in Wordpress. I need all of the elements (including menu, text, blog, layout, etc.) to be completely editable via the Wordpress admin. I need this to be very user friendly (wysiwyg) so that anyone with limited knowledge will be able to update my website. Here is a list of features that I need:
-create splash page for website to be shown while still in development. This will include text, join mailing list and follow us on FB and twitter as well as a flier for an upcoming exhibition.
- Website design with simple layout with Baroque inspired border. (and black text on white page)
- site wide features such as join mailing list field (linked to my account on constantcontact.com), Site wide search field, Follow us on Facebook and Twitter (with icons) and 1 Featured blog article snippet with image (linking to full article). I also need to add sitewide graphical links to a small number of art books I am selling. (images, text and links need to be editable). I also need the ability to add small sitewide image links (or banners). Sitewide text box at footer of website.
- predesigned template for art book pages. Design specs for this need to be discussed with me.
- A customisable number of blog items displayed on homepage with image and text snippets, each linking to the full article. Commenting feature on blog with ability to connect with FB, Twitter and Google plus. I need to be able to moderate comments before they are posted live.

I need to be able to decide whether each image opens in a new window, etc. I want to be able to edit the order of images in rows by clicking and dragging images to different positions. Images need to be automatically resized and cropped to a standardised size when uploaded. Rows need to look somewhat similar to this: http://beinart.org/artists/group/International%20Paintings/ (note. I need to discuss this point before commencing)
