Here’s a thing I want to build: a better version of https://interi.org/process/talkgroup/.
And it’s gonna be awesome!
Basically, all these categories are buckets where we drop different types of conversations. I don’t slice and dice them all the same. For instance, I want to show the most voted on quest, whereas for links I’d like to see the most recent active conversations.
Okay, so here’s how I’m gonna do it in Hugo: I’ll have a
talkgroup content section. Each piece of content inside will be for a category here, such as
Then, for each talkgroup I’ll load a section on the page, and list the posts I want, very similar to how it works now. However! I’m gonna make it super cute, and style it the way I like, get to use some web design to demonstrate how easy and simple such a system can be.
Here are some ideas!
- For #quest-board - a funky “parchment” looking section, like a real outdoor bulletin board.
- For #gaming - NintendoPower oddness
- For #liferaft - create content card styles that emulate protest posters
Etc. I’ll be looking for inspiration for each.
