I need Mailchimp login and feedback from Brooke about overall site and also confirm how to make new video page as we discussed. That would be creating a drop down menu for “Watch” with “Mom Show” and “Videos” right? Each page looks similar to each other but with the posts filtered for the right videos.

I’ve told Brooke that she’ll need to replace them herself later. ==start quote from Brooke Ehrlich== I know those are holding places in the shifter, but could you put these in there, so we can get a sense of what the site is going to look like (current colors of those pics make it hard to tell): I’ve attached two screenshots from the blog page that are a good example of what the shifter photos should always look like. http://msbrookepeterson.com/2012/08/29/tales-of-extraordinary-magic/ http://msbrookepeterson.com/2013/06/05/school-may-be-outbut-dinner-is-on/ http://msbrookepeterson.com/2013/10/01/party-ombre-what-you-need/ (the current one in the shifter doesn’t load correctly) http://msbrookepeterson.com/2012/12/27/ice-cream-for-dinner/ http://msbrookepeterson.com/2012/07/11/rim-ind-me-to-finish-my-homework/ http://msbrookepeterson.com/2010/06/05/blue-velvet-cupcakes/ http://msbrookepeterson.com/2013/06/21/consider-it-a-uniform/ http://msbrookepeterson.com/2013/06/11/you-can-stand-under-my-umbrella-ella-ella-eh-eh-under-my-umbrella/ Log in to Reply | noel saw says: May 8, 2014 at 5:36 pm Here’s the latest wireframe with two video pages: https://www.dropbox.com/s/r3uuhuz7z1x1rb4/bp-wireframe-storyboard-08.pdf Please look at screens #6 and #7 on the wireframe above. We’re going to have two video pages under “Watch” menu. Both are going to use the same exact layout except show different videos. Screen 6: “Watch” will have the “Videos” from the old site. People just click on “Watch” to see this page. Screen 7: “Brooke Presents” will be accessed from the drop down menu (see wireframe) on the navigation bar. This page will have the “Brooke Presents” videos copied from the old site. Again both pages will have the same exact layout.

Log in to Reply | Gaya says: May 11, 2014 at 11:13 pm Hi Noel, here are the videos that are not embeddable (MommyCast website is unavailable generally): MommyCast: Career Day Rachael Ray: Double Duty Pumpkins Tips MommyCast: Homemade Play Dough MommyCast: Wrinkle Release MommyCast: Flavored Water MommyCast: Bento Box Rachael Ray: DIY Bar MommyCast: Summer Trendspotting Whatever with Alexis and Jennifer Rachael Ray: Cooking with Bobby Flay Brooke Peterson’s Reel Rachael Ray: Holiday Showdown MommyCast: Pancake Tacos from YouTube (deleted or private) Rock What You Got: Typsy Gypsy Halloween Food Network’s Private Chefs Every Monday Matters Log in to Reply | Gaya says: May 12, 2014 at 12:47 am Watch and Mom Show pages are done. http://brookepeterson.wpengine.com/videos/watch/ http://brookepeterson.wpengine.com/videos/mom-show/ Log in to Reply | Gaya says: May 12, 2014 at 1:09 am Btw, Mom Show section is in the dropdown of Watch menu item. I transfered Mom Show and Watch pages large image into a slideshow, and called latest posts from each category which is a redundancy. Should we use the same “Featured” category logic here as with regular posts? Log in to Reply | Gaya says: May 12, 2014 at 2:26 am I also finished Press page color tinting: http://brookepeterson.wpengine.com/press/ It wasn’t possible to tint just the text, the whole box changes color, I couldn’t find any suitable css3 solution. Let me know if it’s ok. Log in to Reply | noel saw says: May 12, 2014 at 10:36 am Thanks Gaya for those notes. For the videos, are you getting an error message when you try to embed the videos? I wonder if the security is set to now allow those videos to be posted to other websites without adding them to a whitelist? Or are you getting an error message of “video file” not found?
