A young couple plan to go on a trip around Europe with their 2-year-old son and want to keep their relatives up-to-date with the journey.
The blog needs to be easy to update on-the-go, whether it’s on a laptop with Wifi or a smartphone with mobile network.
WordPress was chosen as the platform to develop the blog – it is the most used Content Management System on the web, open-source, reliable and easy to customize to fit the needs of any client.
A WordPress plugin needed to be developed in order to handle the different types of posts used on this blog: blog post, map markers & countries. For each of these types, custom fields are available for the travellers to fill: latitude, longitude, whether the map marker has been reached etc.
Simple & fresh, with plain colors.
The featured image of each blog post is graciously displayed, no matter its size.
When the location is reached, a plain or dotted line helps to follow their journey (depending on the route).
The website can adapt to any screen resolution. When viewed on a mobile, heavy elements like the background image are not needed and therefore, not loaded.
The green information sidebar is pushed to the bottom but remains accessible due to a new menu link.
Finally, images integrated in the blog posts are easy to browse as there is a full-screen, touch-enabled gallery.
