I guess I have reached a point where I am in desperate need of some help. I have a personal crusade to build a website that well list all of Iowa's Historical Marker, Monuments, Sites and Events so that future generations has a resource to go to to learn more about their home state of Iowa. One of my problems is that I am not a program and know very little about coding of any kind.
I have tried about every Business Directory Listing software out there, including Geo Theme, Geo Place, Vantage and Lising PLace just to name a few. In fact I spent a ton of money on purchasing these themes in order to discover they where to restrictive and did not do what I had hoped for. I've spent hours looking at Timeline, Travel and Travel Guide retaliated themes with even less luck.
What am I looking for
1. It should be a responsive theme
2. When a visitor comes to the site they need to be able to search the town or area they well be traveling to and get results for that area
3. Needs a picture gallery of some type.
4. Must be able to include videos
5. A map plugin that allows multiple pins and shading of areas
6. Visitors need to be able to down load markers as a GPX file
7. I like the bolder look - clear, crisp and easy to read
8. MOST IMPORTANT I would love to be able to setup two or more templates that I can use to keep consistency in the site and make sure all info is completed for each type of category
9. Backgrounds for each post should be a picture related tot he post
10 I want visitors to be able to input their own historical spot
I know I have other thoughts of what I want but these the main items. The search for a theme has me wore out and I want to get started in entering some of the 2,000 plus
sites I have on a spreadsheet.
Any Help, Suggestions, ideas, etc wold be great. Thank you in Advance.
