Without knowing the site, and audience it's hard to say: If you already know that for your audience multiple purchases of the same item are a rarity, and you also know this is a hard-to-break behaviour (i.e. people just don't buy 2 pairs of the same $120 jeans at a time), then I'd say go for it. Also I'd say it depends on the number of replenishment items ...

I'd (rather laboriously) go through the site page-by-page and log it all down in a spreadsheet, such as the example I've attached: Give each page a reference number based on the hierarchy in the site, list the usual details (title, URL) and a brief summary of the content. I've also started listing out all the features found on the page (text, imagery, flash ...

Website Auditor is a tool that crawls your site and delivers a nested hierarchy, complete with meta info, broken link information, error codes, etc. We've found it VERY useful for the exact purposes that you list. Alternatively, I've used Site Sucker for Mac (which is free) to download a local copy of an entire site, and used the log file as my content ...

Ultimately, there are a few ingredients needed in order to track and manage content responsibly: All content should be stored in some kind of data format, preferably a database. This allows you to run quick / easy analytics on all content at once. Content creation should ...

Do you collect their data before they order? You could potentially use some of it to make it easier to give them directions. If they look for a product, you could show them how many are available in the warehouse closest to their address, with a secondary box showing how many in the other one if they really need it (or if the primary one is out - only show ...

I think that the action bar is only there for touchscreens, as they don't have hover states. Desktop applications do have hover states. Here, I'd guess the solution would be closer to Fitt's law; an interpretation of Fitt's law could be: put the action close to (and in line with) the object the action is referring to. So, have a column, which has hidden ...

The first thing I do with site inventories to do a quick scope assessment survey of the site - just note down the basic hierarchy and count of pages, don't worry about the finer details. This sometimes reveals surprising assumptions - one Wine Sellers website turned out to have less than one hundred products, something which got missed in the briefing. All ...

I've tried a variety of techniques (and I'm excited to hear about new tools & methods from others), but our current go-to approach is to first run a quick audit using Website Auditor (yes, the website is kind of scuzzy-looking, but the tool is good). This app crawls your site structure and delivers a nested hierarchy view, including titles, URLs, meta ...
