Web Designer Needed

Submitted by Polly Hall on Friday, 9/9/2011, at 4:34 PM

Howdy, Amherst pals.  A client I am working for needs some website work done.  There is an existing site that needs a bit of design help and content re-organization/updating.  I am handy with web-work but I want someone more knowledgeable than myself to produce clean, efficient code.

My client will pay hourly with a cap of $600 to get the project done.  I need someone I can trust who has a portfolio of recent work.

Happy to hire an Amherst grad or take a first-hand referral. 

How to set page permissions

For a detailed explanation about how permissions work on the website see All About Permissions.

To change the permissions on a page, go to the page and click on the Settings tab at top.  If you don't have a Settings tab, then you don't have sufficient permission to change permissions.

On the Settings page there will be a Permissions section.
