In this section we will look at the path down through the various levels of gallery until we reach and look at the sets themselves be they image sets or video clips. All of these pages, until we reach the actual set details page, are actually exactly the same in layout for both image sets and videos and are actually produced by the same programs.
Most adult web sites are divided up into a number of topics areas to make finding things easier although Wacs itself is very free and easy about what these actually are. In our examples here we're showing our demonstration site PinkMetallic.com as viewed through the standard simple skin colour schemes rather than the custom set we use for the members area. In this site we generally group by the standard set type: Solo, Toys, Masturbation, etc although we have sub-divided the Solo into Babes and Uniforms. The screenshot above shows the three areas in which we currently have sets: Toys, Babes and Uniforms along with a random sampled selection from all of the areas.
You can click on any of the areas to see the galleries available within that area or on the sample icons to go straight to the relevant set.
Moving on to the movies, we have the movie section summary:
This screenshot shows much the same as that of the previous one apart from this time we are looking at video clip sets rather than image sets. And yes, when this screenshot was taken we only had one video clip on PinkMetallic.com!
We're now narrowing down our selection a bit and have got to the list of galleries within the section, in this case the toys image set gallery. Unfortunately we don't yet have enough sets of one type to show the full extent of how this works (we're working on that, honest!). Basically down the left hand side of the page you have a list of the galleries, ordered to show the latest galleries first (in the gallery layout style, or alphabetically in other styles). On the right hand side you have the names of the latest three galleries containing new stuff and a random sample from each of those galleries. You can click on either the left hand bar or the title bar of the samples - where it says "A selection from " to visit the relevant gallery. Alternatively you can dive straight into the set itself if you want to see more of one of the sampled sets.
Having selected the topic and then the gallery within the topic, we actually reach the gallery itself. Here we see the four sets currently within the Toys Gallery 001 directory shown. You can of course click on each of the set icons to get to the set itself.
And so we finally reach the sets themselves. Here we have the set details for one of Sabrina's sets. On the left hand side we have icons, lots of icons: the set thumbnail, the attributes icons and the rating icons. The ratings icons from left to right are: Overall rating, Variety rating and technical rating. In the middle we have the official title of the set and it's description and over to the right we have the model's details and information on the type, location and attire featured in the set.
Moving down the page we have the detailed description of the set if it exists and then below that the links to the various things you can do. This includes viewing thumbnails, downloading the set, looking through it an image at a time or an automatic slide show.
The thumbnails program will be familiar to you from the normal Wacs system - it's the same as the page mode of the normal thumbnail program. The main change is that the menus have been tailored to call back to the Simple Skin pages rather than the Wacs core pages. This is quite a good example of just how configurable the whole Wacs system is - the seemless integration of these two environments.
This is the set page for videos - it's basically very little different from the page for image sets we just looked at. Here in addition to the official title, we also have an official icon which has joined the title in the top row. The short description of the set has now moved down and become a title of it's own. For videos, we currently only offer up the option to download the movie; we're looking at trying to include an embedded player but it is proving hard to get that to work right on all web browser platforms.
