I want my site [url removed, login to view] revamped to look professional and entertain the mind while surfing it. It is important to have it orientated toward and feel like AutoCAD on the first page as I now have it with a little extra flare maybe.
DO NOT BID WITHOUT SHOWING ME YOUR IDEAS FOR MY SITE, doing so will simply get you ignored.
I prefer simple html, but will consider other options that will easily be edited by me, I need to have complete control over updates and content.
I want to introduce 2 new areas and rework some pages of my website. First new area that I want is an area for the curious prospective customer to see locations of my previous designs. This will be a map of the US including the US Virgin Islands with blinking dots or push pins.
These dots will be links to enlarge the area and zoom into the projects. Clicking a project will give all the information about that may include floor plans and/or photos. The pages must load quickly; there may be a few hundred projects to start.
I would like the pointer to be a magnifying glass that will activate the link (blinking red dot turns green). Second new area I want is an area well organized area to select Study Packages and purchase.
Thumbnails with square footage may be a solution, I do not want confusion like so many floor plan sites, must be straight forward. One rework task is I would like to use single sheets instead of frames so I can get better ranking in search engines.
Problem is right now that some people find the pages that belong in the frame and forces me to have links at the bottom for surfing the site. If a single sheet were in tables, all can be duplicated in a template.
Another rework task is my log in section; I need a way to encrypt user names and passwords on the fly without assistance from my ISP. I have 5 secure pages I need to give user names and passwords for. I am open for suggestions.
I want the coder to create a template that will be a single sheet which appears like the autocad screen and crosshair pointer that i now show (without the arrow) ... i want this sheet to have all the links around the entire screen as i now have with frames, a scrollbar in the middle as required ... i need the coder to transfer all the pages and revamp as required ... this may be a big task so i will be happy to do the project in phases if needed.
believe it or not, the majority of my customers are 'technically challenged' and most do not have high speed internet to appreciate the flare some sites have, they click the next site that does not take forever loading ...
the handicap i have is that everything should be straight html or very old java scripts that old operating systems can handle ...
when designing my site, my coder must assume that the surfer is using a pentium I computer, 56mb ram and windows 95 OS ... everytime I chat on the phone with a customer, it seems that's what they have ...
in my business, the surfer is seeking cheap rates and usually can't afford a decent computer or fast internet connection ... so something flashy that takes a long time to download I DO NOT WANT.
