Adapt our current DNN theme that had been purchased and applied to the Telebank Ltd website (www.telebank-online.com) to match more closely the Brightsource website found at: www.brightsource.co.uk.
In order to assess the capabilities of the theme and the potential for adapting it, you are encouraged to access to both the CMS administration functions and the back end of the website via ftp. Which can be provided if interest is declared in our project.
The main requirement of this project is to make the Telebank website look more like the Brightsource website.
The starting point is clearly the top banner image which on the Brightsource website fills the screen regardless of resolution. From there, as we work down the homepage of the Brightsource website, there are a number of containers that need to be emulated in order for the Telebank website to maintain the same look and feel as the Brightsource one. For example, the three light-coloured containers that appear half way down the Brightsource homepage contribute to the light, modern feel of the website:
There is also the top menu to be considered. The Brightsource menu is narrower than the Telebank one and remains fixed to the top of the page is an entirely fluid way. Clicks on items in the menu that relate to anchor points on the homepage result in a smooth scrolling motion. The Telebank menu also uses anchor points on the homepage but when those items are clicked the action is as if the page is reloading – the transition is not a smooth scroll. The functionality of the top menu on the Brightsource website needs to be matched on the Telebank website.
Finally, there are some technical improvements that can be made to the url structure – currently, pages have addresses that contain a sub-folder called ‘tb’. This means that the homepage does not open at www.telebank-online.com but instead forwards to: http://telebank-online.com/tb/Home.aspx
From an SEO point of view, the website will perform much more effectively if the urls are streamlined. Please note: in order to be best optimised for search, meta-data should be added to pages and things like descriptive alt tags added to images – we can carry this out at the same time as the redesign work and a price to do so is listed as an optional extra. From an assessment of the top menu items in the current Telebank website and through our discussions with the Telebank team, we believe a five-page website is required. The following menu items will link to points on the homepage: About, Services, Testimonials and Contact. From the dropdown beneath Services, there will be four inner pages: Core Services, New Services, Memberships and Security.
The time spent on this project will be scheduled as existing workloads permit and will be completed within two weeks of the project start date
