Tables in Bootstrap are not pretty. Bootstrap provides a table class, but in my experience it breaks on phones, allowing the table to leave the right side of the screen. I find it best to build your table using Bootstrap's CSS framework, utilizing the row + col structure; in your case, one row and three col-md-4's. Your "Bigger field" would be in its own ...

Unless your website has a statically insignificant number of visitors, I would prefer the results of tracking your website via Google Analytics over any survey. Surveys inherently posses a multitude of problems, foremost low completion rate and high dependence of result based on order of questions, question wording etc. Use real-life tests of your pages ...

Elements of User Experience is a must read. JJG's book is one of the few books I kept from college, the rest I sold. I always saw the difference as Where and How. With Information Architecture (IA) you decide what the logical place is for certain pieces of information. Where will the visitor look for that piece of information. Interaction Design is about ...

Information Architecture - IA - in a literal way tells how the the information is architectectured or arranged or designed on any application. Ideally it shows the directions for a user to reach to a specific location containing the info user is looking for. And for that there are several things like - navigation, controls, signs, - which account for the ...

A simpler way to look at the difference between the two would be to view Information Architecture as the part of the structure relevant to the content of the interface, whereas Interaction Design is part of the structure relevant to the flow/transition of the interface. I would have actually swapped Information Design with Information Architecture on this ...

This is a kind of 2D tree view control and is very rare in use. I have seen such kind of thing using icons instead of labels and that gave a bit better look than this one. In my opinion, it is better to display the sub-options at a separate place instead of growing the tree.

I have not seen this pattern employed exactly as you describe. My relevant experience in information-rich webapps stems from enterprise health-monitoring and deployment software, which has a deep navigation hierarchy. In my opinion, the left-navigation and the main content should not both employ accordions. Left hand navigation is typically vertical, and as ...

I haven’t seen this type of control before, but I imagine it would work. All if the information Architecture is logical to the user and the implementation work as expected. This probably derives from the need to navigate information dense web applications where you need some way to hide things that doesn’t belong to content, such as navigation. It could ...

I'm not going to go deep into details, mate. Current screenshot does look a bit overwhelming. Yes, I would add an initial step with options like "Import" or "Manual". 1) "Import" option would link to the Import Form that would also include a subtle link "Go to manual form" 2) Upon filling in the Import Form and clicking "Continue" I'd send user to the ...

From my point of view, this is how i see it. It all depends upon the client, if they want the user to focus on one particular content even if it goes for duplication. For example, When I worked with one of my client, they want their news to be present on the right side area on 2 different pages. I suggested we show a gist of contents from News in the other ...

The problem looks to me like it can be solved using Closed Card Sorting technique It's a well-known, quick and inexpensive activity for guiding information architecture work. Some quotes from the article: The process involves sorting a series of cards, each labeled with a piece of content or functionality, into groups that make sense to users or ...
