I would like CMS to be developed for a website by an experienced programer. The CMS has to be developed by doing custom programming.
Requirements of the Project
1) An XHTML template for the front end will be provided by me. This will have to be integrated into the custom CMS.
2) Unlimited no. of pages can be added through the admin area.
3) Provision for adding unlimited images per web page via the admin area. These images will be added by a Browse button.
4) The website will have a left nav bar. The menu items will have drop down menus. The main links in the left menu will be categories such as Patios. Drop down menu will consist of sub categories - for Patios the sub categories would be such as Tiled Patios, Cemented Patios. In the admin there should be option to add/edit/delete the categories and sub category pages.
5) The website will have top navigation and footer bars. It should be possible to add links which can be displayed both in top menu and footer menu. Also it should be possible to display links only in footer or top menus. Thus, in admin there should be option:
Both Top & Footer
The links in the top and footer menus will be for such pages as home, about us, contact us etc. Manage (add/edit/delete) such pages via admin.
6) All meta tags (title, keywords, description) can be added through admin area. This will be valid for all pages (all pages in left menu, top and footer menu) in the website.
7) The website will have a contact form on the about us or contact page. It should be possible to change the fields of the contact form via admin area.
8)Sort Order or Page order should be given for the main pages in the left menu, sub pages in the left menu, top menu pages as well as footer pages. By Sort Order, I mean that the administrator of the site should be able to put any page on any position in the left menu bar. Same goes for the links within a drop down menu (these are the sub pages for the main link). Same goes for the links in the top menu.
Same goes for the links in the footer menu. This is an important feature for the website and I would like you to be absolutely sure that you would be doing it.
Unlimited Photo Galleries
It should be possible to create unlimited photo galleries through admin. In each photo gallery it should be possible to add unlimited photos. For each photo it should be possible to give image caption.
Photo Galleries will be a link in top menu bar. Drop down menu for the different galleries. Clicking on each will take you to a page which will have thumbnails of the images. Clicking on each thumbnail will enlarge it by means of the light box. The image caption will be beneath it.
Please send links of websites previously developed by you and also the time line for completing the project.
