I’ve just won a contract to do a web site for an arts organisation. There’s no doubt that this one is out of my comfort zone but I’m relishing the challenge!
Here are the requested features:
User friendly content management system
Changing images on home page
Online application form for Annual Exhibition
Application database created from online applications
Online payment for applications
Profile pages for members, council and diploma collection artists
News & Events posts
Clickable images which activate larger versions with descriptions
Map of collection drop off points
Downloadable items such as: press releases, conditions of entry, education programme, prizes, etc.
I’d be happy to use WordPress for 90% of this but there are a few features that would prove difficult for me.
There are lots of artists associated with the orgainisation. A members page will be required for over 50 members. This page will include a bio and some images of their work, as well as a link to their home page.
Ideally, I need a database to be created using a simple form, so that the organisation can add and edit all of the content easily. I then need to be able to create lists of links to those members, classified by their association.
Will this be possible in WordPress? Can I use a plug-in (like flutter/pods/more fields) or do I need a different CMS entirely?
