The main feature of the home page is the countdown timer displayed at the top of the home page. The timer counts down to the release date of a specified game and displays the count in real time in days, hours, minutes, and seconds.
The rest of the site is laid out like a standard news publications. The stories (articles borrowed from the outlet Rock Paper Shotgun) are implemented as posts and organized into categories. Stories can are by category and also appear in featured and most recent sections on the home page. Certain categories are also located on separate pages for easier access.
By the end of this project I felt much more comfortable working with and setting up a CMS like WordPress. I developed an eye for finding a well-made theme that facilitates easy content management and provides tools for responsive and visually-appealing design. I also developed a habit for finding useful plugins that allow for more specialized and advanced implementations. I am now confident that I have the level of experience with content management systems necessary to work with and manage one in a professional setting.
