It is built with Bootstrap 3 and includes que popular jQuery iSotope for creating an armonic waterfal of posts. Postwall has been amazingly received all around the world by Drupal developers and newbies.

In this post, we will do a brief explaining how does the theme works:

Understanding Postwall

Postwall is a Premium Drupal Installation profile that provides a powerfull startup to create an online magazine built over Drupal 7. It provides all the article/post presentation layout, browsing and classification based on the default Taxonomy feature included in Drupal 7.x

We will try to explain it using the common flow used by any visitor that would like to explore/read any of your posts or might be interested on your site:

Visitors access your site for the first time

In most of cases, people will access your site via the Home Page. While your site gets ranked on Search Engines, more traffic will come in trough articles, but your Home Page will always be your first impression and the place your frequent visitors will visit.

3 Home Page Variants

Deppending on your purpose, you can use any of these at anytime. You can even switch after a few months and try how different Homes impact your audience. Maybe you have an event, and need to showcase the details using the awesome MD Slider. You can use it at your Home or at any page.

I got the idea of who you are and what you publish, now: I want to see everything related to Design

Once a visitor understands your site, he will go directly to one of your articles or just to a section/taxonomy of them. What does this means:

Postwall has only 3 level of Pages:

  • The Home Page
  • The Taxonomy/Category Page
  • The Post

This allows your visitors to cycle your articles and re-browse without any dead end. Everything is related, so you they may start reading an article about Design and finding another one simmilar to it but also included in anohter category and so.

And finally, the article page. Just and HTML page where you can do whatever you want on the article body. The next image shows all the additional UI elements included in every Article/Post page.

And here ends the main explanation on how does Postwall works. Not to difficult uhhh?
