Looking for web development referrals/recommendations
I'm an eLearning Designer, not a web designer. I have built three portfolio-type websites from templates. I've been approached by a friend who wants me to build a site for him. At first glance, I thought that I could use a WordPress template and plug-ins to build all this without much trouble.
As we have gotten into this, I need some help with two issues:
- It is looking like the site is going to need a small, but searchable database of the members and their profile information.
- I need to find the best solution that will allow me to create to create a totally detailed and customized profile pages for members - either a profile plug-in, or something that will allow members to create their own pages that I template.
Can anyone recommend do-it-yourself solutions for either of these, or refer me to a reputable web developer who charges reasonable rates?
I know that we are a group of eLearning designers, but I'm hoping some of you either have some web design experience, or know some people who do! Thanks in advance for your help!
