IT'S FINALLY HERE!!!
The new manga reader for OMF is available for yall to look at!
First off I want to give a shoutout to @Greg for giving me the opportunity to work on it, had a lot of fun . Also the thanks to the mod staff for the feedback. Second of all this reader isn't 100% complete yet (Like for example the Submit Page is empty, haven't decided how exactly that section of the site will work yet) but there was enough development to warrant showing you guys.
Now I'm just gonna go over some of the more interesting parts of the reader:
For now just shows the most recently updated manga chapters, and the most popular ones. Also an image slider for stuff like news and such.
Manga page and Manga search form
The manga shows the basic stuff like manga title, synopsis, authors etc along with the list of chapters. You're also able to rate said manga as well. The search form is pretty simple for now, allowing you to search for mangas based on basic criteria like release date, genres and so on
- The navigation menu at the top of the reader contains the standard chapter/page navigation items, and a small picture icon that displays the list of manga page thumbnails
- When you click on the small picture icon in the navigation menu, the list of page thumbnails for that chapter slides out and is shown below. The current page is obviously highlighted. As you scroll downward, the navigation menu becomes a sticky menu and is displayed at the top of the screen, for easy access to the other chapters/pages.
And that's about it!
And this is where you guys (the community) come into play. Feedback from the community is important, in order to determine how development should continue from here. What do you all think of the reader so far? What other features do you all want to have on the site? Any new sections? Add/remove certain functionality from the reader itself? With enough plausible ideas we can have a bit of a roadmap detailing how this reader is going to grow in the future, and hopefully this grows into something wonderful. I have a couple ideas of new stuff that can be implemented later, but I'd rather hear from you guys first
Right now the only thing I'm a bit nitpicky about is the logo on the site. lol it was the only OMF logo I could find, and as you can see it's pretty low res, and kinda bland if you ask me. I would like to suggest a forum contest to design a new logo (Or even improve on the old one, whatever works).
A new logo would look better than the current one on the reader site...and would help distinguish our reader from...well this one http://onemanga.com/. Seems like someone bought the old domain and put up a reader, old logo and all
Anyways, like I said, any feedback is appreciate and I look forward, to moving forward, with this reader
