I was wondering if anyone is willing to help me set up a website for my radio station. Even if you dont want to personally help me, I will be happy to get any advice on how to.

I currently have a webhost for the site, (Bluehost.com).

I am not against simply buying a template if I could get someone to help me set it up for my needs.

I'm looking for something that will allow me show the song playing and the last ten or so that played. And to be able to link to my station from the site.

I see phP, and I am not sure what it is...or how to use it.

If anyone is willing to take time to help get the things I need and put this thing together...I would appreciate it.

please email me at neraka1@gmail.com (thats a ONE at the end of neraka) or PM me.

like I said..I will be glad to get any advice on this at all, but I admit to not being too good at web design.

Thanks much.

Question: How does this relate to SHOUTcast?

If you actually search round on these forums, ont he sticky threads and on google - you will find plenty of readily available resources.

You might want to check out some more related forums also such as http://www.webdesignforums.net/

I was just trying to see if I could find someone to help me who has experience, thats all. No need to get all crazy about it.

I posted here, because I figured people here have made web sites for their stations and maybe someone would be willing to help. I find personal hands on help much more useful then having to try to learn from reading a website.

Sorry if it bothers you.

The best way to learn how to write anything is look at examples. I'd recommend you go to:

Html tutorials
http://www.w3schools.com/

PHP Tutorials
http://www.tizag.com/

Open Source Web Design
http://www.oswd.org/

These sites provide tons of examples on how to create static and dynamic pages. Should be a good start for you.

Right. Thank you.

But I am really not interested in learning anything about creating websites. I was looking for someone to actually help me put one up....I have no interest in going to school on the internet to leanr that stuff. :)

I'm lazy, and will do without if it comes to that.

Just thought there might be someone willing to help me do that...no biggie.

There are thousands of web developers out there that will help you. Just go and hire one.

Being lazy's fine... but if learning the stuff isn't for you, I think your best bet would be to pay someone who has taken the time to become skilled in the services you seek.

Thanks.

Now if I do have someone design something for me, can I be assured it will accept the ability to show song playing and recent songs played? Is there some type of format that I need to request in the design...? I see things like PhP, HTML...

I, willing to buy, but i need to know what I need to have in it to add the features I want.

you need to take this up with whoever you hire.

if they dont meet your needs then dont hire them.

www.scriptlance.com for people that will bid for your job.

for stats and things you may want to include follow these links.

I would make sure they know php. Most scripts anymore are written in php. Also, double check to make sure your webhost supports it; since you paid for hosting, I am sure they do but you can never be too cautious...

If they are in web design, they are already going to know html and xml code... or they should be shot. Literally.
