Given your example, there's no gain for the user if you stay on the same page. The reason is that there is no logical connection of the new sorting parameter and the current page. A user is very likely to click back to the first page if they discover that the sorting did not reset the paging. So my suggestion is: Show the first page after resorting Be ...

Yes you should. Let us say the user is in third page and sorts by "last post", he expects to see the first sorted record right away. This can be achieved only by showing the first page.

If you can develop your own controls, I'd try combining the two in a single custom "dropdown", something along these lines: download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups

Any security you put on the offline version can be reverse engineered by some clever person. If you provide software for non-technical business users, and have no competition, then you will probably get away with using annoying (to the users) solutions to offline licencing. Be careful that you don't make the paid version so annoying that it is actually ...

You are not specifying the system and its ecosystem at all, so it's tough to come up with something that might work. Dunno, what you can publish and what not, but this is what would help: what the system is for (what competition is doing, are there online solutions that might your system look outdated etc.) and what kind of users will handle the password ...

I think there are a few large considerations to keep in mind here: How big is the edit area (both in width and height)? If it is to be usable, it has to be very easy for users to see where it begins and where it ends, and easy for them to avoid accidentally scrolling outside of its view (for example, if a user is editing her profile and she accidentally ...

Accordions What Problem Does This Solve? When there are too many items to fit into a limited space or when the number of items, if displayed all at once, would overwhelm the user, then the question is how to give the user access to all of the items in digestible chunks and without requiring scrolling, which can remove the user from the context or page ...

The main difference between Tabs and Accordions are defined by their interaction and display characteristics, since they are both essentially containers that allow people to organize and access a large amount of content. Unlike trees and maps they do not have a deeper level of organization and hierarchy (unless you order them or group them within other ...

I like to use a mixture of the spinning circles with a status If there are a lot of tasks for the system to complete then it's worth thinking about including a counter with the spinning circles Checking (Task 1 of 574) Loading Modules - This may take a minute or two (Task 521 of 574) I would rather know something is going to take 20 minutes ...

I know this is bringing up old news... But curious question... Wouldn't you rather see that the progress has halted, or is supposedly going to take more time, rather than a rotating wheel or indeterminate bars? I personally would prefer to know something has stopped working, or my progress has been halted due to download problems or such other factors. A ...
