If you’re a recent visitor, you will notice that our site has undergone some fundamental changes. Firstly, we’ve decided to change from a custom designed website to a WordPress driven one. This allows for custom pages to be made that all respond in blog format. This is of interest to us because the most recent additions get added to the top of the blogroll, and people seem to respond to this quite well. This also means that as we are periodically published and work, tearsheets can be added at their relevant point in time, and the newest work is always at the top.
The next issue is that blogs in general are not always so photography friendly, however there are a few WordPress Themes around that seem to do a reasonable job. We’ve chosen to use Picture Perfect as our core design unit, as it also allows for a simple design integration of the TTG client selection galleries that we also use.
Now, one of the things that seems to be undocumented in the Picture Perfect theme is the mechanism for changing the images in the slider index on the left. Which is the purpose of this post (… so as I don’t forget sometime later and have to re-look everywhere to find it again….)
And, that completes the most basic tweaks of this particular theme. It took us about a day to make the change over and to populate all the tweaks, then test, but so far it seems ok. One up and coming change to look out for in the future is the addition of a Stock Image library. More on that as developments arise.
For today, that’s what’s in my
Line of Sight.
