I became a guerrilla UX fighter back in 1995.

Me in my guerrila days

I've been underground for many years, but recently decided to ditch the Kalashnikov, get out the trenches, and take a more formal approach to the topic.

Currently taking an MSc in Human-centred Interaction Design at City University, London.

I specialise in complex system, cognition and aesthetics; my current role is a UX/Product designer.

comment Alternative to View Panes
It is unclear what you are asking. Are you interested in a comparison between the horizontal/vertical/split layouts, or in an alternative to such layouts altogether?

comment Process layouts and userflows
In addition, you'll have to define - ideally via an example - what you consider a user flow... some do not see it as the same as others.

comment Should “Deletion successful” confirmation be red, or green?
@Luc you are in a bit of trouble if a seemingly optimal solution is denied because colour semantics is already 'hard-coded' into the interface. The maxim 'more colours more problems' comes to mind here - and it seems you are already facing issue: the semantics of colours is a dangerous territory. From a cognitive perspective - colours (like red) can be used to draw attention, but otherwise should ideally not convey semantics (users have to make sense of what each colour mean). The colour templates provided by bootstrap et al can be easily misused if one keeps UX in mind.

comment What are the possible/best ways to allow a production mobile app to switch API endpoint to a development server?
I think this is much more of an implementation issue than a UX one. A typical solution for this is to produce a dev and production versions of the app itself, which can use whatever API one wants.

comment Should I keep a consistent pattern of colour and purpose for detail-master and similar multi-paneled website views?
I'd recommend you add some visual examples to your question - I'm sure you know what it looks like, but building a visual image from words is not easy.

comment What's the best way to show this particular data to a user?
Could you kindly make the title more specific? It's very generic and one cannot tell what the question is about by reading the title only (in listing pages). You should get better answers if the people this question attracts specialise in what you are asking - and a good title will help achieve this.

comment Lowering opacity on hover. Isn't it totally wrong?
Really useful CodePen share. Personally, with hover the two feel semantically similar. You also have to consider that there might also be an 'active' (or selected) state, for which the highlight might be reserved; still doesn't stop anyone from making the hover opacity between that of an active and non-active state.

Added nav based example.

comment How should breadcrumbs be marked up? Are lists appropriate?
I can't really challenge that (despite H50). From what I've seen <nav> is much more popular. I'll amend my answer.

comment Altering the text color by paragraph?
I can see where you're coming from, but to me (and I suspect to many others) this looks like a few lead-text blocks followed by a paragraph, than a collection of 4 paragraphs.
