Upgrade our Joomla version [url removed, login to view] to version 1.57. You will be working on our server. Our Joomla Server currently has two other programmer working in the MySQL backend building an online reservations system.
The Theme is the great outdoors. Canoes, fire pit, fishing.. That kind of thing. We are mildly inspired by the website [url removed, login to view] and get some of our ideas from that site.
The buttons and background should be theme capable as I plan to hire an artist/graphic designer to make this whole website have a very attractive theme of the great outdoors. - Artist/Graphic Designer is part of Phase 2. All links within the buttons should be easily managed/editable/theme able.
See attached picture of very rough draft of website. All graphics/boxes and such must neatly line up and have a very finished and clean look to them. Exact size of each box and such is not show. This image is just rough placement and actual size and placement should be done with proper care.
The central main picture is to be a flash slide show. On the left is a transparent window that holds editable text that changes as the pictures change. It should of course be very easy to change/modify both text and pictures.
Group leader login and password is located in the upper right corner of the website and is tied to our Joomla user name and password area for registered users who have completed filling out our group booking form. [url removed, login to view] Simple link to the correct fields is all that is needed.
An important part of this website is that people can see and read about our past events & articles, present events & articles, future events and articles.
past events = 30 or more days old
present events = 29 days old and 29 days into the future
future events.= 30 or more days in the future
Expired events = Those articles marked expired by the Admin and no longer displayed in any of the three columns.
A small image and text write-up is seen in the middle of the web page is the lead article. Events are listed in chronological order. If they click on the event, they can read about the whole article. This module should automatically move articles into the correct past, present, future column based on the date of the event. These events should be linkable to a web address that will be tied to our Events Calendar (currently Google calendar based). Events that are present or future have the option of having a button with a link so that people can register for an event online. This module should contain everything for creating/maintaining these news articles and this module, both the lead article and the main article.
Wilderness ___ Guided Tour is a web based Flash Player Window that allows people to scroll horizontally through a series of flash based videos and play the one of their choice. The server hosting the Joomla website has excellent support for Streaming Flash video in real time. [url removed, login to view]
The Wilderness ___ graphic can be taken from a PDF document that will be supplied. It is in PDF vector format and can be sized as needed. The blue wave actually covers over the corner of the upper buttons.
Pictures and Movies is an area that there are several photo albums with different themes, and also several movies. This module should easily manage both video and images. Both the side shows and movies should have the ability to offer full screen to the user if they so choose. Our staff is responsible to upload all pictures and articles.
Maps and directions will use 2 Google Maps to show directions and provide a printable option. Googles API does almost all the work. It will allow a user to put in their address and have Google maps give them directions to our facility. Our location is registered within Google maps.
Submit an Article – This Module should allow people to write up an article and submit an article with pictures. When an article is submitted an email(s) should be sent to notify the administrator. Articles that are approved should be transferable to the events area. An email verification process must be created with an emailed link that has to be clicked on before the user can make it submittable.
I like the way there is a picture slide show on one side, while there is information on the other on this website.
[url removed, login to view]
I would like to use this format/style on the pages for:
Rooms, Facility and Surrounding Area
Group prices & bookings (This will be a large part of phase 2, but we will put in here for now)
Price and book a rooms (This will be a large part of phase 2, but we will put in here for now)
Create a FAQ page – Create a CMS based FAQ page where we can easily go in a update/create/edit a F.A.Q page with text and images.
Employment Create a CMS based Employment page where we can easily post employment titles and job descriptions with images.
Activities – We have 32 activities with a short ½ page to page write up with pictures and video for each. The content needs to be retyped from our old website into the new, but we will look after inserting pictures and movies ourselves. The pages should be easily content manageable and easily allow a slide show of pictures related tot eh activity or flash video to be posted up together with the write up.
About us is a small module that allows both text and images to be posted in a box on the bottom right of the website. - A small ½ page article should be retyped from our old site into this new area by the web designer.
Favorite Reciple of the week is a small module that rotates to a different recipe ever week until it goes through all the recipes entered, then it starts over again. We will type in recipes and enter pictures into this module in content management form. Admin should have control over the order it rotates through, and which article is currently the start of the rotation.
Picture of the week is a small module that displays a small version of a large picture in the corner of our website. If they click on the image, it goes to a screen that shows a larger version of the picture together with a caption. Install JoomlaComment [url removed, login to view] so users can make comments and rate the photo . It rotates to a different picture every week until it goes through all the Pictures entered, then it starts over again. We will enter pictures into this module in content management form. We should have control over the order it rotates through, and which article is currently start the rotation from.
