Best way to go with websites these days is use Wordpress, It takes a fair bit of learning but it's easier than trying to code just a php website.

nice looking site what is the cost of it ? going off track a little bit do you use tunein app ? what settings are you using to broadcast to hear your stream on a 3g network.

 

I've not had any dealings with the Tune In app not sure how it works!

 

My other half built that site as part of the hosting package we do for estreamradio. I'll PM you his email address !

I'm kinda partial to Joomla! (Free) myself. I have even made a couple modules for it (i.e. the NativeRadio flash radio player available for free on my site). Huge collection of modules and components (free and commercial) can be found on their extensions page as well.

I have also heard a lot of good stuff about wordpress, I've just never tried it out myself.

what would i build this with ? something like dreamweaver or is there an equally good alternative as adobe products are normally super expensive.

Joomla is a pre-built php powered website, much like wordpress is. Dreamweaver et al. are not needed. All you need is a mysql database for it to connect with. There are a number of video tutorials available on youtube that will walk you through the installation process (search for "install joomla" or "install wordpress" on youtube depending on what you decide to go with for example) which will be much better than me trying to explain it here.

WordPress is SUPER simple. Here is the shell of my radio station homepage I'm building in WordPress http://www.verbradio.com and this is a completed site I will be launching soon http://www.myvirtuouslife.com also built in WordPress. And as I've said before my knowledge is very slight in these areas.

Agreed with Wordpress! I've worked with mock and live radio websites on Drupal, Joomla (countless versions) and Wordpress and I have to say Wordpress has been the best to work with.

 

Our site is based on the old Z100 (and other clear channel) sites www.powerfmonline.co.uk and we're still working on developing/ improving it!

 

If you can, try going for a prebuilt theme or a framework, this is a good theme and free! http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/graphene
