Archive

The Archive template is designed for a database of photos and links. It features a grid of small thumbnails for your posts on its index page. It prominently features the tags used on your site.

The homepage of the Archive template features a grid of recent posts with links to view the post in full. The post’s title, generated from the image’s filename, is displayed under each thumbnail.

The layout of the grid itself was taken from Are.na with a few tweaks to my taste. The global navigation is designed to get out of the way. It features prominent links to your pages and a list of the tags used on your blog.

You can navigate between the full posts page using the arrows on the left and right. This is heavily designed around images.
