Ok, I've completed some mock-ups of a core G2 layout. A few comments:
:: It uses CSS (no tables!)
:: Has no graphics... yet...
:: Should be easy to customize
(Sorry, no fancy choice page... You'll need to use your browser's back button. Keep in mind that none of the links are active...)
This will be the main view. Note the "Album List" on the right. This will be how users will navigate the gallery. I like the idea of most recent album on top. Any thoughts?
Note that "Album List" has turned into "Item List". I would like to clean up the comment layout also.
Things to discuss:
:: I've designed the width of the layout to fit a 800 x 600 screen (although it looks much better in higher resolutions). How does it look on your screen?
:: I've tested the pages on Chimera, Safari and IE 5.2 (Mac OS X). I need feedback from other platforms and browsers.
I'm looking for help in implementing this layout into G2. Please post feedback, criticism, ideas about the UI layout...
