So, a little while back I posted this question to try and help my website, http://HittingTreesWithSticks.com, out of the 1990s.
So the point of this post is to follow up with that question, and find out:
- Does my site look more modern, yet retain a homegrown comic'y feel?
- Any things about the layout you would change?
- Does the layout seem intuitive?
If yes, I will push it to the live server so maybe you guys can play around with it?
- Indicators: shows which page, subsite, category you're on... A newly added image will be tagged with a *new
- Tagging: in addition to overarching categories, tagging allows users to filter based on specific comic content. A comic can have 1 category, and 1 or many tags. Click tag again to remove.
- Sorting: comics are automatically sorted by date on the left column, and popularity on right column. Popularity is determined by total liked captured per comic.
- Search results are limited to 4 so that the sidebar won't slide down too far, but you can click
show x more resultsto display remaining results.
Voting: a user can like or dislike an image by clicking on those guys. If you vote "like", the guy's shirt will turn green. If you "dislike", it will turn red. To undo your vote, click same vote again, or click opposite vote. If you hover over, it will say "like" or "dislike" if you haven't voted yet. Voting will determine popularity sorting for each image.
Commenting: I've integrated DISQUS commenting system.
- All images are sorted by date
- designated admins can log in here and perform admin functions.
Do you think I've captured an intuitive, attractive design? Any thoughts?
