Manushi wanted a platform through their website that would provide space both for intellectual quests, investigations and debates as well as activist interventions.
We analyze their need and recommended the following:
We give them 3-4 web design layouts, from those one of the web designs they selected is the one in which the web site is based at.
After optimizing all the images we put them in the website in order to make smaller file sizes and faster load times. At home page we put an archive section which is flash based.
Since our client regularly had to update the website, so we suggested them a dynamic and CMS based website.
We divided whole website layout into three sections: left section, middle section and right section, which we applied in all the sub pages.
Left section of the layout we made dynamic which can be changed by admin easily, which consists of the recent articles posted by admin. The whole article can be read in a new page by clicking on it. We made a page consisting of a form which can be filled and submitted by the visitor who want to submit his/her article as .doc, .docx, .pdf, .txt or .rtf type files. Also all the videos related to our client’s business can viewed by any visitor as a YouTube video in a new page, for this we put a YouTube button at the left section.
And the right section consists of the Archives, Books, Films and Cassettes, Regulars and Give your suggestions. We made archives to hold all the previous issues which do not remain current or newest, all this is manageable by admin. To make some contribution from people for their organization they wanted to make a section from people can buy products from them like(books, films, cassettes etc.) So we put their product reviews after Archives and used payment gateway in it so that visitors can easily buy their products. From ‘Regulars’ section we showed some important region related to website. If any visitor has to give his/her reviews he/she can give suggestions by filling a form. We used captcha at this form which is a smartly blurred image, the spam bot can not read it. So the form cannot be auto-submitted by a ‘bot’.
In the same way if any user has to make any donation he/she can fill a form to make a donation of his/her interest, which is made by using payment gateway and paypal.
Any one can join our client’s e-group at gmail and join them at facebook too. All the menu options we put are at footer so that any visitor can redirect to sub links from it.
