In my spare time, I run a very simple holiday booking website on behalf of owners of a selection of properties on a single resort. A variety of accommodation is available.
I built the current website over 6 years ago using Frontpage (yes, I know...). I still update it using Frontpage. But time has taken its toll. The CSS does not display properly in modern browsers like Firefox, the design & navigation is poor (I'm not a designer) and there are some functionality issues beyond my limited capabilities.
Current site structure is a homepage, an availability/booking page which has a calendar chart showing all available weeks, then hyperlinks to individual property pages. Links are added/deleted manually as bookings come in. All property pages run off the same template. Booking is carried out by clicking a "send email" button from the individual property page. These are responded to manually. Tracking is via Google analytics.
I would like someone (you!) to refresh the design, fix the CSS issues, and ideally sort out the booking process so that instead of bringing up the email client, it creates a simple booking form for the booker to complete. When they click send, this will then autorespond with a bounce back email confirming their booking in principle, and will somehow show the availability status as altered - for example, moves from "available" to "request availability". The idea being that as far as the booker is concerned, their holiday accommodation is all sorted (even though I still have to process the actual booking manually behind the scenes).
I still need the ability to update/manage the site myself (using Frontpage - sorry!) and set up new property pages using your template. But I may also want you to do additional work on the site in future.
So how about it? In effect, right now I need you to design me 4 to 6 page templates based on the current content, sort out the existing messy code and perform some relatively simple email/form creation tricks. Easy - for someone like you...
Yes, I want it fairly cheap. But I also want it reasonably good too. So with your bid, please include at least 2 examples of simple websites you have designed to let me get an idea of your capabilities.
Job is ready to start today, however I'm in no particular hurry - some idea of your expected timescales would be useful.
Look forward to receiving your winning bid!

Hi Ian. How about improving and fixing your CSS/Layout and creating a small app for you to automatically update the property status? Please check PM for details.
