I've run several very large forums in the past (25k+ users per day). At first this seemed like a good idea in theory but boy did this backfire. I'm not sure if your forum gets people posting "bump" in order to bump their thread to the top of the list. Instead of doing that, people would constantly edit their posts to keep it at the top. This essentially ...

I think the pattern most websites use is actually the best pattern for recipes because this is how you would say it. Therefor it is easier to remember (because it takes less work for the brain to process), especially with a lot of items: 1 cup of milk VS. milk: 1 cup. Since the reader/user is actually making a dish and not working on the computer/tablet, ...

Alternatively– a you mention price as another "column"– you could integrate the sorting buttons into the list itself similar to a sortable table. Unless the objective is to enable sort hierarchies (e.g. by name, then price).

I knew I had seen this before but here was an example of how Microsoft handled it. Pretty straightforward. There might be a prettier way to design the icon though. :)

Came across this post today and wanted to provide a response based on some developments in the past couple of years (since 2012). Google offers a good solution signaling its Gmail users of sortable elements by using two rows of stacked dots on hover (desktop)

Maybe you don't need an icon to indicate the affordance. Try to change the shape, color, etc. of the lists. Let them have some visual reaction when finger touches them. See app example with Trello.

Taking as given that this is a necessary design element, then.... This classic "font-da mover" widget (as it was first seen by many of us), aka the list-to-list, has not radically changed in a while. Making it more contemporary, arguably "better," can be done by Drag-and-drop from list to list, instead of button actions. This will have to be rock-solid ...

The order of the information should be set by what you want the user to do. For new users the offerings of the site should be first. For returning users put the account at the end. In lists in general the first two and last items carry the most weight! The name of sections are also important. Avoid generic titles like 'info' or 'details' as these wont' ...

I agreed with Rudt that the conventional format is most easily readable, not least because it is the conventional format. But it might be helpful to a user making up a shopping list to have the ingredients named first, something like this: Milk 150g Butter 4oz Flour 6oz Oil Dash Salt To taste Pepper To taste You could this as an alternative ...

With angular there are lot of options. One of it is Ui Sortable Angular library https://github.com/angular-ui/ui-sortable demo @ http://codepen.io/thgreasi/pen/olDJi You could use this as the right side list

You could use a one-line textbox with suggestions, very similar to StackExchange's Tag editor: elements are separated by comma, starting to type will show a list of matches. I would add a "edit..." button that pops up a modal editor (using the majority of screen estate) for this field. This could basically be the two lists side by side, as in your ...

One way i would represent this is to use a waterfall pattern. In a waterfall methodology, current step flows into the next step and so on. So, if you could display the stacks indented (like reply to comments in a blogpost) it would instruct the user that the preceding rule is executed first and its output is fed to the next rule. Hope this helps. Another ...

There are times where the expected pattern for something is so ingrained that to do anything else would just be confusing. As developers and designers, we sometimes want to change things to meet new standards. That isn't always a good idea. I don't think I have ever seen a recipe presented in any other way but this. Cookbooks, recipe cards, online ...

It all depends on the goal of your website. What is it? As I understand this is portfolio/services website, thus the goal is to sell your services. Why Services are separate from Info? Why do you need Read More button? if you don't know what it's for how can anyone tell you? I believe entice your audience by your services and if they want to find out ...

You could do either, depending on how you want to present the information. Do you want to emphasize "normal" or are you trying to emphasize the "non-normal" condition? Users will tend to scan from left-to-right - placing the object you want emphasize to the left would make sense as a result. Because the "normal" condition is common across all tabs, you can ...
