Photography is an important part of the WordPress Multi-site content management system. At Georgia State University the theme layouts of the various sites is based on the responsive grid of the Twitter Bootstrap. This allows visitors to use their desktops, laptops, tablet and smart phone to view pages with minimum use of "pinch and zoom" scaling. Shooting photography and developing graphics for sites using this approach can be both exciting and challenging. The benefits certainly out weigh the effort of planning for these spaces as it allows creative designers to rest assured their work will scale and be presented to visitors with a high level of consistency.
These constructs allow visitors to see various "slides" containing both images and HTML generated text. There are three sizes:
- 1280px Wide by 360px High (minimum) 2000px+ Wide by 360px High (recommended): This element "overflows" a home page with an image, which appears to bleed.
- 980px Wide by 360px High: This element "fits" in the visual boundaries of a home.
- 680px Wide by 360px High: This element affords a slider to fit in a "default" page containing a left widget area.
680px Wide by 360px High. Please note this can have less height, but it will effect the display in a card view.
