Inside the Photofocus redesign: Articles and comments

As we continue to make improvements to the new Photofocus.com, I wanted to draw your attention to a few different features. This comes after a tedious five-month process where we worked to determine how to make finding your favorite stories easier, and have them appear more visually, than ever before.

If you missed our first two walk-throughs, check them out below:

This time, I want to show you around our new article pages.

Articles

When you click on an article, you’ll be greeted by a large image that’s specific to each article. As you scroll down you’ll see the article contents just like before. On the left side, you’ll see a column that shows the categories for the article, along with a link to the comments section. There are also buttons so you can share the article with your friends via social media or email.

Underneath each article is an author widget that tells you more about the author. If you click on their name, you’ll be taken to their author page, where you can see all their articles.

If you keep scrolling, you’ll also see recommended articles. These are chosen automatically based on the type of article you’re currently reading.

Comments

Finally, at the bottom of each article you’ll see a comments section. This is a place where you can leave your reaction to the article, ask questions of the author and engage with other readers. There’s a few cool features here that are new to the site.

First, you can now login with your other accounts, including Facebook, Twitter and Google. You can also login with a Disqus account, or create an account to use throughout the Disqus comments network.

Second, you can let us know what you think of an article without leaving a comment. Think of these like the Facebook Like button, where you can select from various emotions.

Finally, when you do leave a comment (which we always encourage), you have two really great options. You can search for an animated GIF right from the website. But even better, you can upload a photo of your own to share! This is a great way to show how you’ve taken the article you just read and applied it to your own photography.

We hope you’re enjoying the new Photofocus website! Leave a comment below to let us know what you think, or how we can improve.
