Vortex Music Magazine

Recommended Posts

This site has been up for almost two years, but better late than never:


This is the companion website for a music magazine in Portland, Oregon.  

On the front end:

  • Flexslider
 

On the back end:

  • ProCache
  • ProcessCropImage
  • SchedulePages
  • Most importantly, a customized version of @Soma's Images Manager (https://github.com/somatonic/ImagesManager), expanded to allow categorizing images by Artist, Venue, Date, Photographer, etc.  This was crucial for organizing an image library and preventing redundant uploads. Thanks, Soma!
 

Original design by Natalie McGuire

I still can't believe how easy it is to do so many things in ProcessWire. Thanks to all involved!

Looks solid!

The search button seems a bit messed up (FF-Chrome-IE11)

Doesn't show up ok in IE8. What levels of browser compatability have been set in the design ?

Thanks for this.  It's fixed, I think.  I could only get it to happen in Opera  :huh: , but the fix was changing this:

#header-search input[type="text"]

to this:

#header-search input#searchBox

#header-search .search-go

Firefox v.41 the word Submit should not be visible there, it's distorting the look of the right arrow.

Same in all gecko based browser engines.

IE8 here it looks normal . . .

Nice website.

But I'm seeing the same Search button issue.

In Firefox, Chromium, Opera, and Vivaldi.

Depending on the browser, the text behind the arrow is different.

This seems to happen only on the homepage (?), at least now.

Edit: it has disappeared. I guess you have just done something...

Thanks! This actually led me to several issues that have been bugging me all day:

  • the importance of using <button type="submit"> instead of <input type="submit"/> for html5 doctypes
  • redirecting vrtxmag.com to www.vrtxmag.com so that the ProCache cache clears properly - that's why the problem was appearing inconsistently

This seems to happen only on the homepage(?).

That was part of the caching issue.  I believe this is fixed, but the caching thing has made it rather maddening to track down.

Not for me, at least for the moment, but do you intend to release your "customized version of @Soma's Images Manager" in some way or another?

I haven't had the opportunity to use Soma's Images Manager for a project yet.

Have a nice week!

I suppose if anybody's interested, I could release it on github.  As it is, it's set up for my very specific needs, but I could abstract it a bit more.  I'd also love some help making it scale a bit better; we have almost 10,000 images, and 5 fields for filtering them, so it's slowing down a bit.

No need to say that you would certainly have contributions that would improve it, that would "help making it scale a bit better" :)...
