Just another quick update on our progress with the DrunkDuck site rebuild. The developers are currently focused on working through backend programming of the site, with some frontend work progressing nicely as well. We're still on target to open up a public beta of the new site sometime in mid-March. Sorry for the lack of specifics, but we want to be careful not to announce anything concrete until we're sure it will happen.
In the meantime, check out some more sample images below! This week we'll take a look at the new Tutorial section of the site!
Tutorials Main Page
The Featured Tutorials will rotate on a weekly basis. Tutorials are also sortable by month/year and searchable in the search bar. Although the sample image doesn't indicate it, tutorial creators will be able to set tag words to associate with their tutorials, which will also be displayed beneath the title for each of the entries. The number of ratings a tutorial has received will also be displayed in the final version.
Tutorials Article Page
We've added a comments section to each of the tutorials, so that users can more easily provide immediate feedback on each specific tutorial. We think this will help facilitate more discussion on the various aspects of the comic and webcomic creation process.
Tutorials Creator Page
Users will be able to use all of the text augmentation features available to the forums section in creating their tutorials. Images that the creator wishes to embed into his or her tutorial can be uploaded and then inserted into the body using image tags. Users will also be able to preview their tutorial before submitting.
If you'd like to discuss or comment on any of the samples posted thus far, check out the forum thread on the rebuild HERE.
