Notes from meeting:
Discussion of status of website, contract, payments.
Four projects to be completed:
- Template (articles, topics),
- Overall Design/Home Page Layout (Style Sheets)
MCMD proposed finishing this “phase” with completion of the Design. Upon completion of the phase 1, will pay to net double the original amount ($5, x 2). Next phase would be the other three items, for which we will negotiate a monthly/quarterly rate.
MCMD to find 4-5 images for home/splash page slideshow.
What did we decide about colors? I would go with the blues (sky/water in logo), whites, and colors from the logo: dark greens, yellow/gold, silvers.
Discussion of popup vs announcement bar on home page. MCMD to look at themify tutorial on annoucement bars.
Discussion of search bar, takes to another page, then requires a click. Greg suggested that it just opens where it is, which would be great if it could be implemented with the Ajax Search Pro.
- Found a lot of old bloat, > 100 MB in hundreds of old jpg dups. As seen below, adding a new jpg generates up to additional files. Seems like a bug. More cleaning to do!
1b. Compress database plugin?
2. If you present a jpg in a lightbox (as in #1 above) , you can’t zoom, but a pdf does! Thoughts?
Another example, recently added images :
3. Page opens, cursor taken to a specific location? See search bar (you must click in it before typing)
4. Frame on the home page with slide show, announcements.
5. Weekly call-in using zoom.
