Website structure with various project categories
I would like to move a clients website to the LAY theme but am unsure if it is the perfect tool. My client is a photographer and it is super important for him that we can categorise his projects into different groups. It would work like this: Home page with an overview of his work and a list of different categories for example Still Life, Food, People, Film. When you then click on Still Life you land on a page with thumbnail views of all the different still life projects and can then from here go into the different projects lightbox views. The structure should be exactly as set up on their old site: meisen-fotografie.de
Is this kind of structure possible with LAY?
Yes this type of structure works with lay theme.
This is how you can recreate this website:
You can create the categories "still life", "food", "people & places" etc.
Then you can put these categories into your menu.
Then you create projects that are members of the category "still life" for example. Then you insert the still life project thumbnails into the category page. Now ppl can click on the category link in the menu, they see an overview with thumbnails of all the projects of the category. When they click on a project thumbnail they enter a project. Inside that project images can have a lightbox functionality.
If you watch the first five minutes here, you can see how to do some of what I wrote here:
On the website right now there's a masonry layout which is a stacked layout like here: http://masonry.desandro.com/layout.html
This type of layout doesn't work with lay theme yet.
Hi both, thanks for the question and the reply - I am working on making these changes now as they are exactly what I want - jus' sayin.
