Description: Sub-contracted through Dragonfly Creative and based on already agreed project requirements, design, build and test a web based document repository for Mitchell's & Butlers franchise holders. The site frontend is an advert targeted at potential franchise holders offering details of the benefits of running an M&B pub. The frontend displays modifiable news articles, page text and image scrollers as well as profiling available pubs displaying their locations on Google maps.

An administrator backend (again passsword accessed) provides an interface to change news articles and frontend site text, add and modify available franchises, add documents to the repository and manage user accounts and privileges.
