About the New Portfolio Gallery

Aside from the challenges to keep it updated, since I'm still a working Art Guy, and the work does accumulate. That’s a good thing. Some of it is even pretty good stuff. That’s even better.

I will honestly own that redesigning the Sample Gallery presented some real challenges. Aside from updating the content with more recent samples, the previous version of the Gallery was done with a 2003 awareness of coding technology and skill set – tables and tags and a linear format. But that's hardly cutting edge, or classy, or what I want now, and worst – not responsive, along with the rest of the site. The tehnology, especially with mobile devices, just keeps ripping along.

I had wanted to use most, if not all the existing graphics, and not have to re-code the entire gorram thing from scratch and re-do all the art. This is even more complex as I want to show both the graphics and HTML content, be more randon access, and... yadda yadda.

No such luck. NOPE! Re-code it, monkey boy!.

There are hundreds of gallery and lightbox modules out there to choose from. I was familiar with Cube Portfolio from a another clinet’s project and liked it's look, features and customizability. Will be bringing in the content and expanding the portfolio periodically. This is actually somewhat labor-intensive, moslty re-prepping the art. But the templates do give me a leg up.

We'll see how things work out. While complex, the plugin has a lot of appealing options. Am I thinking out loud on a public-facing page? Why yes. Yes, I am.
