Description (last modified by mrfoxtalbot)

Currently the "Remembers" section is just a static page:

In order to keep it manageable, we are going to handle this information via individual user accounts (and have them all listed on that page). We will need the following (only Super Admins should be able to see or edit this info):

  • A "This is memorial profile" checkbox.

If this box is checked, three more user meta fields would show:

  • Date of passing
  • Memorial text
  • URL (this will be used to point to a scholarship, external memorial or personal site)

Sketch of a profile in memorial mode

I attached a quick sketch of how a profile in a memorial mode could look for my friend Alex. Notably shown is a new "Remembering" badge, an avatar in grayscale through CSS, an introductory text and a separator.

This sketch also includes a new design for the metadata on the right, that's separate and of course open to all your thoughts. Longer term I'd also love to see the header and footer invert and go white for memorial pages.

The front-end component has also been deployed now. That will be pulled from the database.
