I need to redesign the home page for my message board to make it look professionally. Here's a screenshot: [login to view URL]
PLEASE MESSAGE ME HOW WOULD YOU REDESIGN THE LAYOUT FOR THE HEADER (or send me a link to something similar) IT WILL HELP ME PICK the developer. Thanks!
The message board consists of a header (logo and some text formatted as a table), list of posts and a footer, new posting button, pagination, search input field and search button. The message board itself is pretty simple, it doesn't require registration and it has only 3 pages.
The stack is pure PHP, CSS, jQuery and Bootstrap for some parts. It doesn't use DB, so the installation is straightforward. Please confirm with me if you want to add new libraries or frameworks in addition to the above.
After your redesign, the home page and the rest of the message board should remain fully functional.
A few minor things:
1) I want to have small icons for "search", "new posting" and "contact" buttons (magnifying glass, plus sign, and email)
2) Pagination color scheme should match the rest of the site
3) Overall color scheme looks Ok to me, so I would leave as is
4) "Submitted by"/"Post subject" should be correctly vertically aligned, now it is misaligned
PS: This is only a first step, I hope to find a long term development partner for this and other projects.
