Any one want to quote for a website?

    Recommended Posts

    I am looking at the possibilty of starting a new project, want to know how much it will cost for someone to design a website for me that incorporates a forum. Website will have most pages only visible to registered users, but with a couple of 'public' pages too.

     

    Meant to attempt it myself, but never seem to have the time/concentration, so looking at the option of paying someone and there seem to be a lot of computer folk on here.

     

    It has been suggested to me that a CMS would be the way to go as I would want to update the contact daily probably.

     

    To give me a price or for any more info, drop me a pm

    Hi Rachel,

     

    Maybe you could send a PM to dglamoore she was a previous moderator on this site and runs the Adelaidebound website.

     

    There are a couple of Forum scripts that you can use PIA uses http://www.vbadvanced.com/ which is very good and another is http://www.simplemachines.org/ which is the one I use for my site. I you do a DIY job I would recommend microsoft Front Page as a good programme, another is Dream Weaver but I've never used that one.

    Yep Libby - get me his details - the more options the better at this stage - finding prices vary greatly, and whether the person understands what I want is another thing too! :biglaugh:

     

    I did contact dglamoore before I posted this, I do like her portfolio, and she seems very good value, but she is not able to do what I am after, she is unable to do the forum bit, plus I need to be able to manage/edit it daily.

    G'day Martin.

    Use Frontpage, ur having a laugh :)) .

    Studio 8 (dreamweaver and flash) is a lot eaiser but still inserts loads of crap useless code so i would recommend programming and designing from scratch or get a template off the net but like most forum sites they all pretty much look and feel the same.

    From someone who's been constucting, designing and producing websites for over 10 years, i wouldnt touch frontpage with a bargepole.

    No Matt I'm not having a laugh, each to their own mate. Front page is a fantastic bit of kit and works very well.

    And I would touch it with any kind of pole!

    Hi Rachel,

     

    Try these guys http://www.webfirm.com.au, although based in Perth i believe they are now part of a national company.

    They designed my website which has an excellent CMS that gives you total control over the content. I've been very happy with them so it may be worth contacting.

    Have you tried Joomla as a CMS i design websites using this and is a great piece of kit and is very well supported. I'd be willing to point you in the right direction on how to use it for free of course. Just PM me
