    I think we also need the possibility to subscribe to threads and filter unread messages for subscribed threads.

    It becomes complcated to keep up with the topics you are interested in, as the number of posts per day is increasing.

    Right, as a seperate project we have also discussed moving to different forum software like NodeBB which would be more modular and allow us to customise it. One of the key features I would like is a Friends list where you could subscribe to feeds from people that you want to follow and a better notification system. Also the ability to tag threads would also be good.

    See attached what Geoff (@Entimp) created on my VPS.

    This is a template with no design just dumping content in to it.

    Here is a brief walkthrough of the backend:

    That’s where the power is, in the content management. This would allow us to give people on the forum direct control of the Feathercoin domain so that people could take ownership of Feathercoin itself.

    [b]I totally agree, this is the most important thing we have ever done. [/b]

    Can you put the video’s on YouTube , in the News letter, and do a Feathercoin discussion Thread to update members how they can get involved?

    How do I install wordpress?


  • Moderators | Tip wrapper

    I would like to see a Github of the current Feathercoin web site. It doesn’t have to be totally deployable, but as a record.

    I think it would be good to work from Feathercoin website version 2, it is easier then to spot technical omissions, when redesigning a feature rich environment. Members and staff spent a lot of energy discussing and implementing those features.

    As everyone is now busy enabling the current projects, does any member have any advice, or comment on how to document the current website (Templates to Github) easily?

    I’m going to repost this on main discussion.

    Do we need a Job List in Newbie section?

    The video of how you can start offering Template design options, towards Feathercoin Website v3.

    There also needs to be a video of where the “official Github” is.

    How to clone the current working template to your hard disk, set up wordpress / IDE and push any patch back to the assigned GitMaster for that project.


  • Moderators | Tip wrapper

    The members have done a lot of work documenting the present site and sugesting potential enhancements or tweeks. The video’s are now sugesting how members can contribute.

    Normally I would prioritise the Statement of requirements, but as these functions have been added as member requests, I will leave all current functions as requirements.

    The next step is to set up a Github, then start - Develop the new “sites”, i.e. Your - Design Specification / Prototype Site.

    It can be downloaded - tested and patched by members for free, is replicable. Members can be added to the team etc etc etc… it is Brilliant.

    If you still haven’t learnt Github, a member should be recruited to handle that for the team…

    I’m going to work on developing some layout/design ideas for the website.

    So far I’ve developed one style, which I’ve attached. With this style I was looking to produce something similar to these websites:

    [url=http://isotope.metafizzy.co/]http://isotope.metafizzy.co/[/url]
    [url=http://wecreatedigital.co.uk/]http://wecreatedigital.co.uk/[/url]

    The graphic I’ve attached is a bit basic atm, so it lacks some detail, but the basic idea was to use a grid of rounded boxes at two sizes and with icons for menu options. Videos, pictures and social media posts could also be blended in or positioned somewhere. Ideally, you’ll want a site that looks good on all devices (tablets, smartphones etc), so reponsive design is a must.

    Anyway, I’m going to do a bit more research into alternative designs and produce a few more wireframes over the week.

    I am loving this journey down alternative design.


  • Moderators | Tip wrapper

    How what do members need to have temporary web host servers to try the website out? or make some tweeks,

    Is it only Online? if so is there a cheap way to do that or recommended web hoster?

    or could we run a local version from home computer.

    I for instance, don’t want to maintain the site but I could invent cool charts, given the graphing tools / training.

    All right, I’ve drawn out a few more website themes. Check them out on the attachments.

    I’ll see if I can come up with some more. I think I need to design a theme that has either a more ‘communal’ or DIY/hobbyist feel to it.

    Hmmm…interesting Severino 🙂 +1 rep for those. I like the idea of first and last one…something we might use.

    That last one looks so dramatic with the circuit board.

    Hahah, because mining is dramatic? 😛

    Anyway, let me know if you need a hand with designing stuff like icons.

    I think we need to plan what will be the most important info to put on the homepage, in order of importance. For now all the info I’ve put on those wireframes are just examples. We can rearrange and add stuff.

    Also do you think we need to put in point (or with icons) the main features of FeatherCoin and what makes it unique? When someone visits the site, they’re going to want to know straight away what it is.

    Big thanks from the community. We appreciate you.

    Nice work, Severino. I liked the idea of the slider, but being auto generated somehow. Wireframe 5 is dramatic.

    I would like to see:

    The next step is to have a way that these web designs can be prototyped and demonstrated quickly (to the members).

    I don’t want to make a big thing of voting, I look at that as popularity, not law.

    It is obvious to me that, in a volunteer environment, the person doing the actual donkey work gets the last word on the work. I see that as the main reward for leading the work, a measure of artistic control.

    But, it looks like we could easily have a 3 design ideas to chosen to mock up, to vote on, as a general look and direction?

    The idea is to get some input from members which design they like and buy in to the process. This will also help to encourage, design and enable ways for more member input into Feathercoin projects. Its not essential, members can comment in the forum.

    That template looks really good to me, I like the direction the new site is going in.

    Heard about the upcoming website developments from Chrisj’s interview. Decided to see where this was hiding and eventually found it! Looking nice, Looking nice! I was really impressed with the way wireframe5.jpg looks as a theme.
