Hi all - how about getting this moving again. I want to propose using a template, either free or paid for (HTML templates are usually quite cheap) and modifying/adapting it for our purposes. This will enable us to get a good looking site up quickly and cheaply. We can then change colour schemes, typography, images and menu systems (and probably get rid of any sliders!).
To get this going we need to decide between us what style of site we want (take a vote?). This is what I think the contenders are?
1. Standard jumbo image style like meteor and babel: https://www.meteor.com/, https://babeljs.io/
