I'm looking to revamp our current guitar school website.
The finished site needs to be
- easy for us to update/add content to (it currently contains a lot of hidden pages which students can access - perhaps we need to add a private "Student Area"?)
- able to host a student forum (private)
The current site is a Wordpress site, but the theme we are using does not allow us to integrate a Forum into the site (e.g. bbpress). I'm assuming the simplest solution would be to change the theme and update the site at the same time. I have a certain amount of Wordpress experience, so this would be my preferred option, but am open to other solutions if they can be shown to offer what we need.
We are not looking for someone to write the copy for the site, as I have enough online marketing knowledge for this - we need someone with the necessary technical and design skills to help us realise the site.
