Ok I was gona go down the road of converting to a custom mysql/php but after looking into phpcow throughly we have decided to opt this root..
Now the current website is [url removed, login to view]
The headers and footers and side bar will be used throughout the site as can be seen. The sidebars height must refelct that of the page.
The header will have phpads code for the banner.
The main page will be exactly the same..
Using flash on the top left and on the right phpads
underneath all the latest articles.
forum section will link to the phpbb forum
exclsuive, events, lifetsyle all have simlar templates that is all articles to be in them..
now the music and movies section have simlairties in the music section top row is fixed then rest of the articles and in movies top and bottom are fixed and articles in between.
video section to be the same..
photo same it links to our gallery system so will jus link to it
gig photos, gigs and link section must be the same.
The main pages may need to have more than one link as can be seen so this needs to be taken into account..
Also the articles mainly follow 2 current templates one for all the articles and the movie section has its own one. so the first one shouldnt be a problem but the 2nd movie one will be a bit tricky.
Have a look around the site we need exactly all you see there all exactly be made into a template for phpcow...
You can get a trail version of phpcow for 7 days so therefore project is to be completed within 5 days as you can save all your templates and we will be able to upload them to our system..
Have a look at there A10 template it is ver simliar to our current system..
