Users sometimes want to move things up, sometimes move things down; so you should offer both. Asking users to calculate an alternative way to achieve their task reduces usability. Consider the following daily task list: Tidy room. Buy a book on Amazon. Reply to John's email. A person might go: I can't be asked cleaning my room, this is the least of ...

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, ...

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)

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' ...

Ω (Alt 234) will push an item to the bottom in windows file folders; I like it because it's intuitive.

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 ...

The session is stored on the server whereas the cookies is stored on the user desktop. In the session, you have no way to retrieve the cart's information after the session is expired (generally 30 minutes at most). You will throw away 2 hours of Paula's time, who has struggled to choose that red shirt over the green one. Cookies's size and number are ...

Instead of having two buttons for each row, you may have only two buttons above the grid ("UP" and "DOWN") that will move the selected row up or down. Additionally you may add another two buttons above the grid ("FIRST", "LAST"), that will move the selected row at the beginning or the end of the list. This will reduce the need to repeatedly press the ...

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 ...

Have you done any user interviews? I would try some variations on your design and get some feedback from people in a cafe or someplace. After reading your description, my suggestion would be to make "venues" it's own menu item that takes users straight to the venue management interface (only one click required) then put the cities, countries and timezones ...

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 ...

I've found one! (At least it's working on my Chromebook - I'm not sure how it will behave on other machines. In re: JamesQMurphy's comment on web vs. Windows sorting.) The Icelandic letter Thorn: þ What's weird is that even though the last 3 letters in the Icelandic alphabet are þ, æ,ö and Wikipedia says that Ææ and Öö are considered letters in their ...
