Hi there -
I am very new to WP and wondered if any of you could kindly offer me some advice.
I am looking into getting my website http://www.bedandfed.com re-made. I want a much cleaner design but the functionality to remain mostly the same with a few changes - Hosts sign up as paid members (they would have their own profile to then edit) and then Guests would also have to sign-in to look at the properties. Internal messaging between the two would be great though online booking is not a necessity.
I know that a lot of customisation would have to happen (some I could do myself and other bits I'd get a professional - design-wise I'd like there to be hand drawn lines if this is possible) and if I had some idea of what themes and plugs-ins to use that would be a great start. The Hosts area has to have calendar etc. The property search has to be geographical AND by tick-box topic such as 'by the sea' and 'grows own vegetables'.
Any ideas please let me know - would be so grateful. Equally if you have any questions about the above please ask me - I may not have explained it all very clearly!
Thanks so much for your help!
