Hi everyone My organization is the head pro at Sheaffers Memorial Golf course in Fort Madison, Iowa. There are come time our golf course needs an online site for obvious reasons. I have done just a little web design in advance of but nothing as compared to waht we requirement for this website. Does anyone get any ideas on where do you start with a project such as this Obviously I ought to go purchase the website name and hosting, but after this specific I dont know what to do. Any beginning advice is great. Thanks folks!
Being via Minnesota, I’ve heard how the only good issue to come
outside of Iowa is Interstate THIRTY FIVE…. ba da boom
Almost 100% of internet websites now are vibrant, which in almost all cases
utilizes PHP including a database, such while MySQL. You really need to assess the
attributes that their website needs… such while:
1) Does any non HTML person ought to update content within the website
2) Does it need any user membership account/login/database
3) Does it need a home-based tee-time reservation system
4) Stomach muscles some Flash " fly-over" movies belonging to the golf course
Thought of list of needs and specifications.
As much as web hosting, there are numerous " good but cheap" web website hosts to
buy. www. cleverdot. com, www. 1and1. com, and many others.
Many offer " fantastico", that is certainly a control -panel feature that puts a CMS
similar to Joomla, Drupal, WordPress having a few clicks on the button. This tends to make using
a preexisting " free" PHP/MySQL system quite simple to install.
While I was reading your post I had been trying to try to remember what the score was in the Iowa vs Minnesota game…. then I remembered
Ba Da Boom
But seriously thanks for the suggestions. The greens is not an enormous course so most people wouldnt do the movie flyover point and we wouldnt require a member sign in base. It could well be awesome to have Tee reservation system but is not a necessity.
The following is basically what I’d like to see to use that for:
1. Have our tournament schedule one particular with entry forms that searchers can fill out/pay just about all online
2. Have a pin by hole picture/discription thus people unfamiliar when using the course can go here (similar to fly over just less than as high technical I guess)
A FEW. Allow golfers to build their Tee instances online
I also think that gradually down the road it becomes nice to have a newsletter/email database in order to email our users about upcoming tournaments or events for example….
Finally it would nice permitting access to the pro shop within the web so folks can order night clubs and come begin using them etc.
How hard on the project do you suspect this will be for me
I think this could be too difficult pertaining to an amateur. You would be better working with a professional to start this for you. Have you got any kind of pay off this
I accept Jason…
When you are really new to web design/development, you would like to hire
a freelancer or someone to defend you. Try to uncover someone very nearby
for your requirements. Working with someone face-to-face is the smart choice.
I’m thinking when you find yourself going in the direction of Drupal or Joomla, this means you can
start looking at existing templates for all those online… getting a thought of what
exists and possible design ideas.
okay thanks guys…… Let me start checking close to on costs inside area to have someone help me make it happen….. because I was just starting way too believe that it will be a little too difficult personally to accomplish myself in the process. Thanks for that advice
I dunno about just about all that. Everyone starts for a beginner gradually. If it’s a strictly informational website that you’re looking to develop, think about the information you intend to portray. Benchmark a little to consider the competition’s websites to acquire some general ideas of the method that you want it trend. Then you can browse the internet for tutorials that may walk you through other ways of doing this.
In case it’s something fresh and simple, there’s a chance you’re able to clean by with minimal HTML knowledge, after which it learn more since you go along. I’m no qualified by any stretch belonging to the imagination, but I’ve been paid to undertake web design work for Five different professional along with non-profit organizations can’t, with lots more requests we have declined simply because I’m still endeavoring to learn PHP and the many " cooler" goods. There’s nothing incorrect with straight CODE coding, in several cases.
Research those websites to supply web design & growth services, Asked these to quote everyone. By that you may have an idea to the cost you may incur to build the site.
Static CODE pages are completely fine, if somebody or persons are usually willing
to hold the site updated (manually).
But the moment Sheaffer listed the features they want to gain, static HTML sort
of fades the window. Pertaining to just an " informational site", buy the static web site.
Result in a basic HTML page without any scripting. That would have been a good learning
