40LBHead.Com is an ongoing project as most websites are and has many more things to come in the future. It's the online presence of 40 Lb. Head, one of Northeastern Pennsylvania's most prolific local bands. It is the most complicated website produced by Nepadigital to date.
It features a highly modified Phpbb based forum and Coppermine Photo/File Gallery both of which provide fan interaction with the band and site. Both utilize the same user database negating the need for two logins. The Photo Gallery is much more that your average gallery, it allows for member uploads of images, video or audio files. Features such as these are ideal for a band site for the obvious reasons.
Other notable features include random thumbnails of photos on every page load throughout the site that are linked to the original full size images. Scheduling can be edited by any band member no harder than writing an e-mail. Lot's more to come in the future.
Fireplacegallery.Net The Fireplace Gallery is located in Noxen, PA. Utiliziing oScommerce software we have created a catalog for the many products of the Fireplace Gallery. In this case all of the purchase options have been disabled but it can easily be converted to an active online shop in literally minutes. Additionally there is a Custom Coppermine Photo Gallery installed to show off the h. Both of these features allow for easy owner content manipulation.
Why choose Nepadigital?
When choosing a web design company you have many choices but most fall into two categories. High priced shops that can produce excellent quality sites at a premium price or "Joe's Web Service" where in most cases you might as well flush your money down the toilet. Nepadigital tries to fill that gap in between, giving you a high quality site without having to spend a small fortune. One way to keep costs low is by keeping everything in house, if for example you need video we don't have to go elsewhere. Everything from taping to the final file that makes it to the server is done in house. We keep costs low by using non-proprietary open source software such as PHPBB among others that won't cost you a dime.
Schedules, products or even updates to text. These are all things that can frequently change on a site and having to run to a web design company and pay them for updates can not only be a hassle but expensive and may even be too late by the time they get it done. Nepadigital enables you, not disable you. Any text or areas of your site can be targeted for easy web based changes that are easier to make than writing an email.
Using server side scripting and CSS main sections of pages are templated and not hard coded. In plain english that means minor adjustments such as adding or subtracting links from the main navigation or something as simple as changing the color of a font can be accomplished site wide effortlessly. The entire look and layout of a site can be practically changed overnight now and into the future.
Search engine results or who ranks where for a given search word or term depend on many factors but it starts with well structured valid HTML code and strategically placed keywords and phrases in a document. Nepadigital can set you off on the right path to insure the pages themselves will not only help but more importantly don't hurt your ranking.
Getting a domain and selecting a hosting package for the first time can be a daunting task with all the choices you have, where, how... these are all questions you may need answered. We don't provide our own servers for a few reasons, the main reason being that larger facilities can provide a far superior service at a better price. However we will guide you through the process or even complete the task ourselves at no extra charge. Most customers will be pleasantly surprised to learn that most sites can be run from basic hosting packages starting at around $10 per month.
Nepadigital utilizes many open source web applications for the more complex parts of a site such as a forum or image gallery. There is simply no reason to reinvent the wheel and in the case of software like PHPBB or Coppermine it would take years to develop, the newest version of PHPBB has taken the diligent work of many programmers nearly 5 years to complete. Software such as this can be downloaded and used by anyone free of charge, where we come in is integrating it into a new or existing website. Modifications are done to fit the theme of your site, adding new features and search engine optimization modifications among others.
Nothing can convey meaning better than hearing or seeing it yourself. If you can think of it we can do it, from a streaming audio player optimized for dial-up users playing random songs online or ISO files for download and burning to DVD disc for playback on a TV. The options here are only limited by the end users connection.
