>>The largest part of the Homepage will be a ROTATING SERIES OF PICTURES, FEATURED CONTENT, and AND/OR ADS that can be easily changed and updated by the administrator. Pictures and ads will display in the same way. Ads displayed here can replace or supplement ads currently in the hard copy of the racing program. Content and Ads may link to pages on the site or external URLs
On the Homepage will be a Login Section and Search Box – they will expand and contract so as to not use up too much space, but to also make them easy to use.
>>Latest News section – will also be on the Homepage in a way that does not take up too much space. Dated news will be archived and removed from the Homepage.
Upcoming Events - the site admin will have the option of displaying a fixed number of upcoming events (probably 4 or 5) in list format on the home page. That list will derive from the calendar function so there is no need to update it manually.
The home page may feature a number of “hot buttons” allowing smartphone users to access the most common functionality without navigating the menu. Those common functions may include “Membership.”
What to avoid
Please provide homepage, about page, events page.
The designs MUST be mobile-first. Our users use mobile and this has to be a very mobile responsive webpage.
