I Really Like How This Page is Constructed
This appears to be the standard story template at my old newspaper, The Pioneer-Press in St. Paul, Minnesota. It does a lot of things really well:
• Leads with a dominant image and cutline
• Strong SEO headline
• Easy-to-find options for sharing
• Text configured to keep line length readable
• A related-stories listing up top, with links
• A secondary image (there's another farther down the page) that continues to keep column-widths at reasonable lengths.
I think this would be a terrific basic template for stories in theorion.com, with variations for available content, of course. What do you think?
