I have a website that I'm considering moving to Joomla. The website is built with a simple template system that pulls content into boxes using php includes, so the content should be pretty easy to migrate. It's still a new site, so it isn't yet content rich.
The top banner portion of the site template is good and should migrate easily. I'd like to retain several other look & feel aspects of the template, but it can be improved. The template will be a flexible four column structure where the columns can be combined as per the uploaded graphic. I'd prefer to use the four column structure, but that isn't absolutely necessary.
The installation will include VirtueMart and Jrox affiliates. I am open to other affiliate programs. There is a contact form that will have to be ported to one of the form contributions.
There is also a requirement for some PHP coding involving cookies. Incoming URLs will often have inquiry strings. The variables may be associated with the affiliate program, which will set appropriate cookies. There may be other variables that are not associated with the affiliate program that require cookies. Data from both cookies will be used to build query strings for a few outgoing links.
