Colors should really match the theme of the site and be easy to the eye. For example, if the site is about valentines day, use shades of red and pink. Most importantly, make sure contrast is good. An example of bad contrast which many websites produce is light grey on white. Visit checkmycolours.com and put any URL in it to see if the website has good ...

I'm not sure it's deliberately obscure, but rather a victim of circumstance. For example, the UX team's requirements might have been: We need to show how long ago a post/tweet was shared, as it creates a sense of immediacy and relevance We need to provide a link an individual post/tweet We need to cut down on UI clutter for the majority of users 99.9% of ...

If I understand the question properly then the answer falls into many different areas. You should be well read on the subject but I would recommend looking into a range of articles from the Gestalt School to Tufte to Nielsen to computer scientists looking into color and data visualization (as for example): Why Should Engineers and Scientists Be Worried ...

From a programmer's point of view, login processes are mostly still POST forms. If you handle both the login form and the login process in the same page (say index.php), any future reload of the page (e.g. via F5) would also trigger sending the POST data again, which is not desired. Hence it is considered best practice to outsource the login logic to ...

This is a well known design pattern. You have a form which contains sub-workflows, which can be fired off at different times in different orders. Problems: Legends (asterisks in your case) should be avoided if possible, because it forces the user to dart around the screen to figure out which controls are asterisked. Having the action buttons in a ...

Color-coding the data entry boxes will give additional affordance. Are there other visual representations of the two actions (A and B) that might be represented with an icon or symbol? Can you logically group the required fields for each action?

Definitely keep the size of the rows consistent -- don't adjust them for the viewport. That's what zoom+in and zoom-out are for. You can explicitly ask the user how many rows to draw -- which is nice, because some people might only want to see 10 or 15, some might want to have a table with 1000 rows. Infinite scroll becomes problematic because if you keep ...

There are very few cases where infinite scrolling is better than paging There are a number of reasons why paging through long lists of data is a better user experience than infinite scrolling. Infinite scrolling is okay when the data you are presenting to the user is virtually endless and also being selected for the user by the application like on Twitter, ...

Are you comparing an old design to a new one? If so, and the variance is so little, stick to the old design. This is because you haven't fully tested the variances over a long period of time, and therefore if your new design is not obviously better, then you're risking a long-term dropoff for no measured gains: Tyler Roehmholdt, Web Marketing Manager at ...

Retype vs. summarize (a) If the entire text of the scan is relevant, the entire text should be provided in text form. (b) If only a certain part of the scanned text is relevant, only this part should be provided in text form. (It can have a summary in addition, as long as the relevant parts are quoted verbatim.) (c) If none of the scanned text is relevant ...
