The new website is now just mattgiraudfans.net! I still have a lot of work to be done on it but it is functional...just not completed. I hope everyone likes it so far and as always if you have something you want changed or added please tell me.

Well the links to the blog and photo gallery don't work right now but I sent off an email to the support team so hopefully they will fix it soon. They moved files for me to get joomla off of the address so the links probably got broken. I still have to create the news and appearances pages. Will get to it as soon as I finish the homepage.

Oh and I added the music player. It looks different than the one here. It is at the top of the page if you want to change the song or turn it off. Unfortunately I don't have the popout player there so once you switch pages it will turn off...sorry but it screwed the page up.

Jenna,

Do you know what makes a website show up in a Google search? I wonder if it is links on the site or visits or what?

If we knew, we could try to do more of that! Smile

Yes I know. I have to register with search engines and creat a sitemap which I plan on doing once the site is complete. I did it here. I also recieved $50's worth of advetising when I bought the site. They also have these things called bots that searches a site. I think the more traffic you get or the more times your site is searched the higher your site is on the search engines like google and yahoo.

I will get back to you regarding the pictures later today. I have to get ready for work.

LOL do I know anything without spending hours trying to figure it out? I am so sorry cecilie I know you spent so much time creating the wonder gallery here but I do believe we are keeping this site open. Maybe we will eventually move over to the new forum but I think I like this one better.

I will be back later with instructions on how to post pictures. It's kind of complicated but only because there are a few different ways to post pictures and I really haven't spent much time yet trying to figure it out. But I will I promise!

No worries Very Happy I'll gladly start all over!!
I was wondering - that is if you want to and it's possible - you could add me as an administrator if you need some help...don't know if I can actually help out... Laughing

Just wanted everyone to know that I put a link up at the top of the page under the banner to the new homepage.

Thanks megasmatt!

I just checked out the new site, and it's very impressive! Great job, Jenna, and I can't wait for the gallery. Very Happy

Is it wrong that I already registered on the new site? You can never get enough of Matt! cheers

Question, are we going to continue using this site for the forums? Thanks!

Thanks Riley. No it's not wrong that you registered there already...I'm glad you did. I hope our other members here will do so too! Very Happy I'm still working on the site though. Cindyy is creating a banner so we can advertise the AI tour that is why there is all that open space on the left hand side. I can't wait until he starts his career because then the homepage can have a lot of news on it rather than all the pictures and quotes. But right now there is just not much news to put up. Can you guys think of something else we could put on the homepage?

Yes I think we will be staying here for our community. The new site has a forum section but I like this one much better. I did start one over there though. It's really up to everyone here. I just think we have so many posts and members here and I'd hate to start over. Plus I can't figure out how to spruce it up. But there is a link on the new homepage at the top labled Community that will take you here. The only reason I'd like to move is because then we'd be at the same site. What do you guys think? Here's a link to the new forum...

I really like what you have so far. If you wanted to add more to the home page, I noticed what other singers' fan clubs have on their web sites.
I'm not sure how difficult it would be to do any of this, but you could add a "Biography" link at the top of the home page. Maybe someone could write a more detailed bio, including some details about his pre-Idol life (if we could find some reliable information).

Also, as we get more registered users, you could have some of the members' screen names and avatars displayed on the home page, like how they show them on the home page on americanidol.com .

Besides the poll question, you could put up a daily trivia question.

I see that you already have links to purchase Matt's mp3/ CDs. Also, you already have the links to his YouTube videos. How about a link to CafePress to show where you can purchase Matt-inspired merchandise? [Who wouldn't want a t-shirt with Matt's pretty face on it? Wink ]

That's all I could think up for now. Sorry if it seems like I was asking for a lot. You have been doing an awesome job! cheers

Damn I can't believe I forgot to put up a link for the giraud squad t-shirts. Forgive me Cindyy. I have one here on the old home page.

I was actually thinking about the Bio. We could definitely have a Bio page if someone wants to write it. LOL I just don't know much about him.

I have been looking at other musicians websites as well for ideas. Matt just doesn't have a whole lotta news right now but once the tour starts we will hopefully get some good video and I know we will get a lot of good reviews to fill up the news page. I would love to figure out how to put up a slide show for pictures. So if anyone knows how to do that let me know.

I'm glad you shared your ideas and they were all great ones. That's what I want so feel free to share more...everyone!

As you see I added a sliding picture scale. What do you think? or should I change it back to the original way. If we decide to keep it I will be adding more pictures to it and I will have to change the section that is titled Matt Pictures to other content. Well let me know?

It's up to you guys but for now I think we should stay here. At least until I figure out how to spruce the place up. I also want to see if there is a way for me to transfer our members and posts over there.

I have an idea...

Has anyone on here made a fan video? We could have a section where every week I put up a different one. What do you think? Does anyone know how to create them?
