The forum is asp net which has a css system - has the ability to be changed to suit needs
Here's the low down .....
1. change the layout of the forum on the front page - create a whats happening area , I wanted this sectioned up into six box's with pictures added
2. charge for membership to certain areas of the site(so, set up a payment area, I have already set up a paypal account, but needs to be integrated into the site) I wanted to create 3 seperate paying areas for 3 different types of services which would require 3 different memberships.
2. create newsletter
3. add moving text to front page
4. add a latest discussions section to front page(latest discussions that have taken place within the forum)
5. add a RED HOT EVENTS banner or box (basically which lists the latest events for that week or day)
6 .put the current news section in a box
7. change navigation area
8. remove a small exisiting table on the site
9. tiny change to existing logo
I have the layout already set out so whoever gets the job will have a visual impression of how I would like the site to look. Also have a few website examples.
