I could really do with some advice regarding a project my company should (hopefully!) be starting soon.
The client is a relatively large business, and the project involves over the course of 12 months redeveloping about 24 websites, made up of restaurants, event venues, and cafes.
In an attempt to make this project easier and more cost-effective we suggested to the client we set up a base set of web components (forms, navbars, footers e.g.) and put together 3 templates (restaurant theme, event venue theme, cafe theme), with a layer of branding CSS to help the individual arms of the business retain some branding differentiation.
As a result of this component idea I suggested to my MD we look at using a decoupled CMS-Frontend architecture, taking advantage of Nuxt.js (my new favourite toy!) and it's component-based methodology for the frontend, and using WordPress as the CMS. With this framework we would be looking at creating a custom set of components, 3 WordPress themes, and 3 front-end Nuxt.js templates for the corresponding themes.
Other than some difficulty finding appropriate UK hosting for our needs this was looking like a good solution, however my MD has told me that he was going to quote the client £10k for the templating project because he doesn't feel the client would be happy paying anymore. I responded by saying really that's not enough for the type of architecture we have been talking about.
The question I have is; am I wrong to say £10k is not enough for this project?
My experience tells me that £10k is fine if we remove the front-end framework from the equation. As keen as I am to do this project in the way I've described above the number in my head was more along the lines of £20k. Am I way out on this one?
Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone has any idea which is the best completely free open-source software I could use to create my website.
I've been using a program called Open Element up until now. But it has some shortcomings including text which changes size depending on the webpage and it doesn't have a built in search engine.
The type of software I'm looking for must be drag-and-drop since I only know a little bit of coding. It must also allow me to use a search engine, preferably through something built in, and it must have a good way to change how it displays pages on mobile. Finally, I'm looking for something more like Wix than Wordpress. So something where I have relative freedom to change the themes, increase the size of images, change the layout, move things around freely, etc. as I wish.
It must also allow for good SEO.
Note that I don't need a url or webhosting, since I already use GoDaddy for that purpose, but only need the design software.
Hi. I am new to this and I have through, a misunderstanding bought a domain name that is of no use to me. It seems I cannot get a refund on domain names. I am wondering if it is possible to get this changed to one that I can make use of and if so, how do I go about it?
Thanks for any advice.
I'm planning on making a website, which will have a calculating web form in it.
The form will have to do various basic mathematical tasks like multiplication and division for example.
Also a very big plus for the form would be the possibility to save and load it (I'm thinking like either a database where you could save using a specific string and load by it or save as a xml file to the local computer or something).
Now the qustion is what would be the best way of implementing this kind of site/tool?
I was thinking WordPress because of its ease of use and ive found this plugin but I am unsure of whether it will be able to have the save/load function.
What do you guys think? How would you do this? Thanks in advance for your thoughts and feel free to ask any additional questions if I've missed something.
