The Process of Designing Layout


Ok its time to work on the other section...
currently... there is only 2 section...

both share the same layout... a simple single post page...

now i want to work on Art Gallery Section
this require a new layout both for single page and for listing...

usually when designing a layout...
im just drawing a rough sketch for what im gonna do...
listen... im not a pro lmao...
i just use whatever i think its work okayy...

here is some basic rough sketch for what im gonna do for the lisitng layout

*click image to fullscreen

its a bit different than my approach with the normal post listing...
i want to have a subsection... in this case year

while in the Art Gallery Section...
i want to list all subsection and some of the content from that section...

and if you click view more
im gonna list more of the content with the pagination...

as for the image box...
i took lot of inspiration from other art gallery website...
this is what im come up with...

*click image to fullscreen

the title only visible when mouse hover into the box...
i think that gonna look cool...

oh yeah... for the view count... it is not working yet...
i need to make the counter first...
this is will be implemented later... when i am working on comment system

lastly for the post page layout itself...
i just edit from the normal post page layout...

the only different was it support multiple images...
more meta tags...
and rating system...

of course rating system wont be available right now...
this will come later with the view counter...

and that's it... Art Gallery section is up and running...
i am planning to include all my art i made that i can found...
from back in the day... when i am starting drawing to this day...

ok that's the art gallery

now i want to do some changes with normal layout...
making this subsection make me want to add subsection too to the normal listing...

maybe adding year and month would be a good idea...

then for the post layout...
instead of showing next and prev post on the bottom of the page...

i want to show similar post instead...
maybe like 4-5 listing post

the first would be prev post and the second would be next post...
the rest would be random post from either the same section or same tags

i still wanna talk about the comment system...
but this post already long enough...
and maybe comment system deserve its own post...
