Join Carrie Dils for an in-depth discussion in this video Identifying requirements for a photography site, part of WordPress and Genesis DIY: Showcasing Photography.
- Based on the goals and needs we've outlined,…now we can start figuring out our requirements…for both the content…and the presentation of the content on our site.…These requirements will help guide our content creation…as well as the selection of a theme,…and our supporting plugins.…Really, the goal here is to create a guideline we can follow…as we decide how the site should be put together.…For the photography site I'm building,…I've created the following list.…First, the site must be able to handle large images,…and I'd like it if it had…some sort of a pop-up functionality…that went full screen when clicked.…
This means I'll probably need…some sort of a lightbox plugin.…I also need the ability…to display galleries of images in a nice way.…WordPress actually has built-in support for image galleries,…but they leave a little something to be desired.…So we'll try to find a plugin…that displays image galleries more nicely.…This might even be the same plugin we use…to display our single images.…Since I'll be publishing articles…
