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. :)

My understanding of this is that the original uppermost content becomes the anchor of the interaction. Everything below it is a reply. To reply to a reply, you'd need to set that as an anchor (in many UX cases). Tweets in reply, for example, unfold the whole conversation in this manner with a "More" option if there's more than X-number of Tweets threaded. ...

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)

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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' ...

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 ...

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.

Essentially what you are wanting to do is create sub-lists within a global list. Why not prepend all of of your items with an alphabetised prefix. For example: EMAIL: a task EMAIL: forward this EMAIL: reply with report PICS: create album x PICS: create album y PICS: delete picture 2 from album x This way you could scroll, or browser find straight to ...
