If you look to your left – figuratively, of course- you’ll notice I’ve nearly finished uploading all the pictures. I’ve also been working on a sub-navigation for the pictures portion of the site to ease up on loading time as some pages were becoming quite crowded!
You’ll now notice that each link on the pictures page goes to a section; think of these as albums. Sections contain pictures related by subject, location, date or event.
Each album will be made up of one or more page which contain pictures that relate to eachother more specifically. If there are more pages, they will be linked to other pages by a “Previous” or “Next” link. If there are no other pages, there will be no link. Individual pages will no be linked to on the pictures index.
There are similar links to the “Previous Section” and “Next Section.” Except for the very first and last section, each section will have a functioning link to the sections before and after them.
So, if you start in the first section, the pictures of me section, you can page through the entire section by clicking the “Next link.” At the end of the section (or anytime before) you can go to the Next Section, family and pets, by clicking the respective link. The sections follow the order in which they appear on the pictures index: Me, Family and Pets, Samantha, Amanda, Halloween 2005, Tokyo Disney 2007, Ryusendo Caves 2007, Narita Origami Museum, My Trip to Wausau 2008, Miss Gay Wausau Pageant, Tokyo DisneySea 2008, and Ueno Park and Zoo 2008.
Generally, the last album will be the most recently uploaded pictures; however, the photos of myself are constantly updated and are arranged by date, with the newest toward the top.
I’m thinking of adopting this sub-navigation for the Website Primer, what do you think?
