Some business websites have product filters that sort things to be sold, by type, color, size etc., as on the left on this page-- [login to view URL] I am not building a business site, but that filter function might be useful. I am dealing with a mass of files that include texts and images and audio relating to the oral literature of central Borneo, and for my new website, I want to customize this filter function so that it will sort these things by various qualities, such as place of origin, genre, author, language, characters, topics, et cetera. Each file will be given appropriate tags, and the reader can check various boxes to choose and bring up a long pageful of links (with images and information), including only the files that have been labeled by all the tags checked.
So, I need help setting up my WordPress site, starting with choosing a theme that will have this database filter function or make it easy to set it up, and going on through occasional help uploading or adding functions like comments, translation, donations, etc. I would like you to create the site structure, and help me if I have trouble completing it. This might go on for a year or more (so many files to offer).
Tell me about your experience with website creation, for business or academic purposes. Recommend a theme or several that I could look at, and tell me what help you can offer on an ongoing basis. And give me an estimate of your fee.
Because most texts are Indonesian and Malaysian, it might be useful if you are from that region and know the language. I will need to translate information about how to look for texts, and could use the help of a translator familiar with website vocabulary in Indonesian. But most of my audience will probably use English.
