[Pro] Quotes for building Master Pages in FW7

I have been attempting to rebuild a website initially built in iWeb. Most of the content consists of hundreds of links to outside websites and Facebook pages.

I have been very overwhelmed with FW7. I purchased the new templates but have not found an easy way to alter them. At this point I just want to add content. To see an example of the content, please check: www.camisoleconnection.com

Is someone willing to build 5 (?) Master Pages for me. If so, please contact me (email@hidden) and supply a US dollar amount.

Thank you, Kathy Thompson

I see the need of exactly one! master and 5 child pages. While the master contains the hero top-image, navigation and footer-item, the child-pages vary by simply the body-content.

Cheers

I agree with Thomas - you really only need one Master by the looks of it. Do you plan on converting the PDFs into text on pages? It would be more web search friendly. to do this.

Since you got the new templates we’ll assume you want the new site to be responsive as well?

Hi Thomas, Thank you for your reply. I wasn’t very clear about the structure of my new website. I’m expanding information to include other cancer products too; which would leave my current website as a section of the new one.

If you didn’t, please revisit my current site, go to the “Retailers” page and click on a state to see the extent of the data.

In the meantime, I’ve played a little with WP and will work more on FW7.

If you have some tips on editing the FW7 templates I would appreciate it. Also, what is your opinion on making a website “responsive”.

Thank you, Kathy

Thanks too to Karen, my email is: email@hidden

Hm - difficult.

Perhaps a note to me first:

I’m doing “responsive” pages since round about 2012. I quick realized that this is not exclusively a “technical” thing to do. It requires a good amount of “what happens if … - thinking” and therefor a strong(er) plan.

I can (and will) repeat myself ever and ever again:

Doing webpages is not using Freeway, it’s starting by authoring - simple written words similar to prose. Once done, I try to write the outline of the page - so turning the prose into a web-site-story.

So to be clear:

I’m trying to tell a story and not just throw a piece of meat “eat-or-die” thing.

Once I got the basic pieces I can start to wrap this into a design. And all this makes me then and finally creating my Freeway project.

Think about this in your specific case, too. You got an incredible advantage here:

You have something to say - you have content to deal with. So take the chance, sit down - collect your stuff, write it - do it! Review the current stuff and merge it with the new rather than simply extend it to the mess.

And never forget: There are people out there who need your informations! And they need primary infos, not design. A well structured (even unstyled) page is already design the rest is decoration (more or less).

And to double Karen here:

Take the chance to create single posts (pages) for each new product you’d like to add. A pdf for download is fine - but just as infomercial - not as the page itself.

And I keep up my initial thesis:

It requires only “one” master. A master is an opportunity to place stuff which appears on “all” child-pages. If something is unique, it isn’t a master item. Often enough it’s just the navigation - sometimes some more items.

Summary:

I do not understand “responsive” as an extra service, offered to my clients for some extra bucks - it’s the client’s good right to have a page performing on all devices (the best we can).

For this reason I’d never give you a quote, I’d ask for your budget and would then decide wether doing it your not! (Free interpreted the words of Mike Monteiro).

Cheers

Thanks, Thomas. I certainly will take your message to heart and take a different approach!

I’m going to give myself some time to rethink all of this, take a stab or two myself at FW7 and repost my new thoughts in the near future.

FYI: The two main things I’m trying to communicate are 1) that cancer-related products exist and 2) there are specialty retail stores where they can be purchased.

I just thought of another question: Instead of strictly using PDF files you’re suggesting I list the retail stores on a page (maybe by state)?

Thanks again!
