Front-end / WordPress Test Project

Project brief

Convert the following designs to HTML/CSS/JS/WordPress.

Infinite scroll gallery

Xfive Front-end / WP Test Design


  1. Create project using Chisel
  2. Use HTML5 / SCSS
  3. Make it responsive using your best judgement
  4. Allow to choose thumbnail shape from the 4 predefined shapes (circle, square, rectangle, triangle) in the WordPress admin
  5. Create custom infinite scroll effect - use custom JavaScript and PHP, don't use existing infinite scroll WordPress plugins
  6. Enter enough sample images to demonstrate the effect
  7. Make the page the smallest possible size - optimize images, disable jQuery or any other unnecessary scripts/stylesheets, etc.
  8. Set up a virtual host with your project repository name (eg. yourname-fewp-test.test) so we don't have search & replace URLs when testing your project
  9. Store the whole WordPress installation into the test repository. Store a database dump to it as well and a zip with upload folder with images used in the project.
