A possible solution would be to show where the row landed by scrolling the entire table up or down after the edit is complete, then showing a highlight around the position of the new location. Nothing that would last very long, just enough time that the user can locate where it went. This would require some animation and scroll hijacking, but I like the use ...

Assuming you want to avoid hierarchical categorization, you can use freeform category tags to apply multiple filters:

Any list of items with text labels can at least be grouped by first letter. That said, I can't even imagine 1000+ root level categories for movies. Can these categories be curated down to just a few that make sense because how do I even know which category to search for?

With Option 1 there is no indication that the columns are sortable - it just states that one of the columns is sorted, but that doesn't have to mean that you can click on the other headers as well. So definitely option 2

If I understand you correctly you have videos and you want people to be able to find them easily without them having been put into pre-set categories such as what Netflix does. You haven't given us much information about what kind of videos Hollywood type movies; YouTube cute puppies and guppies; instructional videos - how to use Photoshop, fix your ...

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.

Ordering this content by when it was last edited or updated seems like a rather confusing approach, especially given that users bring a typical news streams and calendar timelines paradigm with them. If not confusing to the user, this would be rather frustrating and require users to learn a different approach to your timeline only. I tried to come up with ...

Your question: What are the cases where one would use this type of filter and how effective is it? Is something you answered previously: [When you can] assume the user knows what the first letter of the item is. Context-wise, I think your two examples are likely the most applicable uses: dictionaries and address books. iOS7's address book, for ...

I detest the iTunes UX, so I'm a fan of any competition :-) The 'conventional' way to sort is by clicking on the column headers. So I think any solution should attempt to be compatible with this behavior. For multi-column sort, things become more difficult. Columns can quickly get cluttered with tiny arrows or badges. The tiny directional arrows can be ...

I typically use a grippy looking dotted area like this, that's also roughly the size/shape of a fingertip. ...or 3 bars indicating a similarly grippable area: The idea being to make it look like the surface of the button itself stippled or embossed - and so making it more connected to the whole button rather than being a separate function or action. ...

This is fine. For two independent lists. Look at it the opposite way round: If Active had the first item as the one furthest from now, that would not make good sense. If Archive had the first item as the one that happened longest ago, that would not make good sense either. The longer the time between now and either extremity, the less sense it would ...

If you define the sorting criteria as the absolute time difference from now, then your sorting is the same for both active and archive. People use the spatial metaphor for time. The further away the more distant is the event in the future or the past, with the reference to now, e.g. people use the phrase "way back" to refer to things that happened long time ...

Option 2 looks more intuitive because : it does not introduce a new element like the arrow, the meaning of which might not be obvious to your users and does not force you to suddenly move the item title horizontally and therefore create discomfort during the process by. To build upon it and have your users understand that their action is going to affect ...

This was meant to be a comment on Hynes (who I want to give my support) but it became too long: Splitting them up makes a lot of sense. The News section is a feed while the Events section is more of a time table. Mixing them would lead to a non-intuitive plus a some other usability issues. For instance, when it comes to items like upcoming events, they ...

I don't know exactly how the workflow looks here (e.g. what happens next) but I assume you don't have an "apply"-button used for the sorting to take effect. Never the less, this can be seen as a 2-dimensional sorting and the least elegant thing about this could be the duplicate sorting parameters (e.g. NAME (A-Z) NAME (Z-A)). If you have a clear picture ...

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 ...

To me the carat is both accurate and established. Another issue is individual interpretations of what "ascending" and "descending" mean. We each know exactly what they mean ... to US. In my experience we have had a few instances where we discovered these truly do mean different things to different people. Ascending numbers to one person means smallest at ...
