Sorry I just noticed Greenshady’s comment about my question not being detailed enough. Could you let me know what other info I can post? If I do take this to a freelancer (something I’d have to look into as I haven’t done it before), I would like to be able to explain what I need properly. I will fully admit I may not know the correct terms though.

What I need:

- Front page of the site has a a login, or a sidebar/footer etc with a login.

- A Client logs in, and are taken to a protected page that has their technical drawings (HVAC related) on it.

- They can access the rest of the public site, but the other client’s drawings could need to be protected.

- There would likely be about 20 of these protected client pages

Does that explain things a little better? Thanks a lot.

Thanks for the tips guys. Yes, I should have posted that Wordpress was the plan. I am not a Wordpress novice, but I just couldn’t think of the best approach to this having never setup anything similar.

Thanks for the links, some interesting stuff in digitalimpact’s link I will have to sort through.

I need to set up a site so that people can login, and view technical drawings. Each client would have their own page that contains just their drawings. So I’d want them to only be able to view just that page when they login.

I know a single page can be password protected, but a I need a single login area, I don’t want to be sending page links out. I need them to be able to login, and be taken to their page.

Is there a theme anyone can suggest that might have this functionality, or suggestions on how to achieve it with plug-ins?

Thanks a lot.

I am slightly worried about the jquery and other scripts. A lot of themes use them heavily and they don’t often degrade gracefully if scripting is turned off. In the case of sliders, and tabs and the like, that seems to mean some content gets hidden. But how does that affect menus? I wonder if a screen reader would be able to navigate them, etc

I am currently researching this and have the exact same worries. I may be misunderstanding what I have read, but to be ‘accessible’ there needs to be a way a site using only keyboard functions with no mouse. EG I have read the Superfish is compliant, and can be navigated with tab keys. But when I try that on some themes I have downloaded that use Superfish, it doesn’t seem to work.

I have had 2 organizations contact me recently wanting sites done, and compliance is an issue with their sites. To make things more confusing, the accessibility standards a little confusing. Especially v1 of them vs. v2.

I wish I even knew the developers name so I could contact them if they still had other themes on here.

Basically the thing I liked about Plus+ was that it was a narrow design, and it’s slider was set up to better support of mix of standard landscape and portrait photos. Not just very wide oriented photos like most of the sliders use.

So if anyone can offer any suggestions based on that, let me know. Thanks!

I had it bookmarked to buy at a later date, and now it’s gone. As far as I know it was released in 2010 and was a fairly new theme. I’d really like to track it down, or find something very similar to it.

Thanks
