Berkeley 250 Ideas

  • The “Home” page could include a background image (preferably an image that is really large, so it does not lose quality when it is stretched to fit). Background could be an old paper.
  • An image gallery slider could be added to the “Home” page at the top.
  • Add a “Places To Visit” or “Destination” to the menu to take the user to the “Places To Visit” page.
    • The “Places To Visit” page, could be formatted into a grid list displaying an image of the location, location’s name, brief summary (such as the history of the place during the war or about the place in general), and a “Get Direction” link text which will take the user to Google Maps with the destination already set.
      • A “Read More” button could be added for each location. Once clicked on, it will take the user to a post which will have more information about the location.
  • Could embed the maps that were created on this page:
  • An image/logo that links to the “Anniversary of 2026” page.
    • The “Anniversary of 2026” page, for now could just link to only one page which will be the temporary home page for the new site dedicated to this anniversary.
      • Included: a paragraph detailing the anniversary and events that could occur. Also, what could be included is a column with a list of the sponsors (logo which will also link to their website).
  • The “Contact” page can either include the location name, main person of contact (optional), and texts that will link to the email and/or telephone number.
  • The “Partners” page could include a list of the partners, logo (linked to their website), and then name of the sponsors under that company.
  • The “Supporters” page could include a list of the supporters, their contributions, and social media(optional).
  • The “Archive” page could have an extensive list of documents from the time during the war.
    • The page will have an image placeholder with a title below each. Once an image is click on it will take the user to a page with a more enlarged image.
  • The “Timeline” page will include a vertical timeline. It will include the time of the events and a brief description.
    • If needed, a “Read More” link could be added for each event. It will take the user to the page going into further details about the event. The page could also include some pictures of the event.
  • The “Service Records” page could have a table of the SC soldiers who served during the war.
    • The table will have the name, DOB, date of death, and rank.
    • The page will also include a search feature for names.
  • The “Important SC People During the Revolutionary War” page will consist of an image of the people and their names.
    • The image can be click on which will take the user to a post with more information about the person that was selected.
  • The footer could be the same as the tourism site or a footer specifically for the Berkeley 250 site.
    • Include contact, address, hours of business, and logo.
  • The “Hotel” submenu for the tourism site could be included in the Berkeley 250 website as part of the main menu. The page used will stay the same.
