Sleepy Comics "Express" in development
Jul 08, 2009 12:39 AM
I've known about all the issues sleepycomics.com has had with the user interface, and I've decided to finally solve it. That's right, I am going to release a whole new redesigned site after everyone has gotten used to this version. Don't worry though, this current version will not go away; I'll still use it when I need to add and edit scenes. This site is a very robust scene manager.
Some issues I currently have with this site are:
- The interface is buggy and confusing. You have to click many things just to do a simple search. The page moves up and down unpredictably. There is no back button support.
- The searching still sucks.
- Mobile support is horrible. This site is impossible to use on the iPhone.
I've decided to go back to the basics. "Express" will only be a search engine without all the fluff this current site has. The first thing you'll see when you goto sleepycomics.com is a search box and a logo...that's it. When you hit "search" with just a blank query, it lists the 30 most recent scenes added. The list will be a lot clearer with more information.
Searching will be a lot simpler. For example, if you want to find all of Wonder Woman's chloro scenes, just type "wonder woman chloro" in the search box. You can filter results by medium type and gender. You can sort results as well.
Clicking on a search result will take you to a page with all the scans and everything. You will also be able to use the back button again.
I plan on creating a portal page which will show recent scenes, popular scenes, featured scenes and news.
This won't be ready for maybe a few more weeks.
