A flash template provided by Template Monster must be customized according to my needs. It will be a wedding website that must have a flash photo gallery, interactive guestbook that updates in real-time, an animation that must be added to the homepage that will be a letter written by the couple (this letter must be converted into some sort of digital version - meaning paper designed in photoshop/flash and text that appears to be written on the page).
The template will hold the basis of this website. The designer must be able to tweak the gallery (if necessary) and you may have to implement the guestbook into this template yourself, as all the templates do not contain them already.
This project needs to be completed within 48 hours of bidding end. I will need you to provide me access to the template as it is being built so I can make changes as necessary. I will do my best to lay out things in the beginning so only one round of revisions may be necessary. Two at a maximum, just to ensure everything is worked out. I will need you to migrate the site from a testing area to its final location on the FTP server as well. I will provide the necessary credentials when needed. This will be a quick job and you will be paid upon completion.
The template that I have purchased can be found here:
The specifics of this job are as follows (keep in mind that some details may have some minor revisions or omissions by the time of completion):
-Homepage will play "September" by "Earth Wind and Fire" on loop
-Homepage must incorporate the letter written by the bride in some animated fashion; I would prefer to have a sheet of animated paper fold out and then the text fade in on the sheet. This should happen upon entering the website and should be a layer that will sit on top of the image in the background
-A layer MUST be added somewhere to the site that will contain a timer countdown to "9/10/11"; This calendar must be visible on any page that is visited on the site so I am thinking it must be added to a corner somewhere
-The photo gallery must be incorporated into its own page and linked to with the rest of the sites navigation
-A guestbook MUST be incorporated into the site that updates in real-time; it will have three fields: Name, Email and Message; must have a Submit and Clear buttons as well. The messages posted must show up on this page for anyone to view upon visiting this link
-The navigation tabs will be as follows:
-Map of Events: this page will detail the wedding rehearsal, ceremony and reception; the layout will be up to you
-Wedding Party: this page will give a quick overview of the members involved in the wedding party
-Our Registries: this page will link to the registries of the bride and groom
-Guest Information: this page will list the accomodations, sights and attractions for the guests
-Guest Book: refer to the info provided above
-Photo Gallery: also refer to the info provided above
Please keep in mind, all content and wording will be provided to you for these pages but the layout and placement of elements will be solely up to you.
Due to the nature of this website, it is important that I am able to view the site during its build-phase so that I can work with you on making changes as necessary, in a timely fashion.
The 48 hour time limit is the maximum amount of time that I have to get this project completed. If I can possibly attain additional time for completion, I will let you know ahead of time. Time is very important for this project and it absolutely MUST be completed by this deadline.
A general "Contact" page will be required as well. This page will be your standard contact form found on most Template Monster templates and must not reveal the recipients of the contact form.
