A client really likes this site:
Can anyone offer advice on which theme to start with, and which plugins and galleries to use?
My current plan is to start with Parallax, use the Grid-Loop plugin, and put a separate gallery into each post, make sure each post has a featured image and category, but I need to know:
Can a slider go into the hero image space?
Well, I am pretty sure you can put a slider ANYWHERE, as long as your register a sidebar wherever you want it to appear.
Can a sidebar secondary menu appear only after the hero image rolls up?
I am pretty sure you can do that to, but you are going to (most likely) hack the home page template.
and put a separate gallery into each post, make sure each post has a featured image and category,
Maybe you are thinking of having a "portfolio" custom post type instead of a gallery on a post???
You could probably do either way.
I would suggest one thing, though, and that is if yo are going to have a large number of images appearing on the home page the way that the 1100architecht.com site does, it might be a good idea to use lazy load to only have them load as the viewer scrolls down the page.
Otherwise, it will take a long time for the hero image / slider and the page to load.
I was viewing it on a DSL connection (I know, DSL is not super fast) and that site took a LOOOONNNGGGG time to load. I thought it was broken it took so long.
Hope this helps.
All info is helpful, thanks!
