1. The image should be taken as a rough sketch. Actually the proposed template will be a combination of [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view]
2. The theme files should be well separated and commented in order to include the php code easily
3. Main menu should be suckerfish type for easy navigation
5. The color combinations can be similar to ibnlive.
6. Should be elegant and conform to the standards of xhtml and css
7. Wherever applicable use rounded corners
8. The template is fixed width and should be tableless
9.The center column in thamizmanam.com layout should be similar to http://www.indianpad.com/ with the default as display and an option to hide the content. Along with the current options in thamizmanam, a print, email and pdf icons are required
10. In addition to the index page, some content page is required. Content page can also be three column layout similar to ibnlive.com and also to place ads in different places
11.Currently in thamizmanam.com the tabs and menus are generated dynamically using the PHP code. The Style sheets of the tabs are separated out. tabs can be easily added or removed using the PHP code.
Though we don't need the PHP code to be done, we require that the template should be easy enough to add/remove tags using the same process that we do now. We can give the PHP code for reference.
- The tabs should be designed similar to ibnlive.com - Including the main menu tab as well as the most commented, most read tabs
- Well specified places for placing Ads in the main index page as well as content page
- Proper place for displaying different content like ticker which currently exists in thamizmanam.com
- In addition to the existing Layout of thamizmanam.com a category column similar to ibnlive.com World, Sci-Tech, Sports etc., has to be designed which will be similar to ibnlive.com. The diagram that we have attached here can be taken as a rough sketch
- Further details will be discussed with the partner over phone after we give the project to them...
