Hi folks! 

 

I put together this quick screencast to demo a prototype product I put together. I would love your feedback with any ideas or thoughts you may have if you have a few minutes to spare.

Great stuff guys! Yep the mapping is the single most confusing part of this, but I've supplied some screenshots that show it along with examples so hopefully it won't be too difficult.

 

Here's a screenshot of that;

I still need to record an overview video but the demo is up now at http://showoff.nichola.us

Hi Nick,

the problem is - you want 3 things in a 2 dimensional world - as I understood - and thats tricky without getting confused.

Okay thinking the musicians way - Up to 10 Post IDs (notes) get numbers (1-10) that correspond to positions ( 1|1 etc.) on the map (keyboard). Too complicate for my easy piano player brain. To sightread and play music fast from a sheet you simply need one note and the position on the note grid - thats basically it.

So give people a prefixed grid or map with two-digit-numbers f. ex. for the positions: 01, 02, 03, 04, - 09. This is the upper row from left to right. Next row down starts with 11, 12, 13, - 19. This is for a 100 possible positions on a map. Of course you can cut that down to less positions, maybe a 5x5 matrix which gives 25 positions (11, 12, 13, 14, 15 first row - 51, 52, 53, 54, 55 last row. I think that would be my favorite.

The good thing is: for positioning you only have two things to deal with: Post ID + Position - like: 345-13 or … that will reflect Post number 345 on position 13 on the grid.

Its like driving: you know your car, look at the map and drive to location. Maybe you like my suggestions.

And in the WP-Backend show the map-layout and explain the grid first - and then let people enter their numbers for Post IDs and position.

It's fab.  would buy. ya know separate but related, Coming Soon is one of my favorite sections - I am using it prolifically - i  love the whole concept of being able to turn an ordinary page into a special showcase page - one of the great advantages is that you can keep your basic layout across the whole site - but then we now have these great special/featured page options that can turn a single page into something grand but without altering/ messing with the whole template. It's fab. love the concept - love showoff. This is  good track you're on here Mr. Nick - stay with it. this and more cool featured pages. Yep. Like it unicorn wrangler. It's magical.
