Why are they spamming me?

Apart from because they can, the need to raise page ranking in search engines gives rise to the need to create a lot of links to a web page so the search engine thinks that page is important.

How WordPress Processes Entry Text

WordPress processes text entered in the Write Post Panel multiple times before the text is finally displayed on a web page within your WordPress blog. The processing of the text filters out the unwanted code and conforms the text to a form that the browser can interpret. Without attention to detail and familiarity with WordPress's post content filtering, this can cause unwanted changes. The majority of the conversion and filters are found in the wp-includes/formatting.php file. Some typical problems some users have with these filtering and processing functions are: Empty paragraphs, closing span tags, and line break (BR) elements are removed upon saving. Classes are…

How can I do a bulk edit of the Status field for all the posts in my database?

Use the following SQL commands to change the post_status for every post in your wp_posts database table. This command will do the bulk change and exclude Pages from being changed–remember to replace STATUS with draft, private, or publish. UPDATE wp_posts SET post_status = 'STATUS' WHERE post_status != 'static'; If you have multiple authors and only want to do a bulk edit of just one author's post, you can use the following command, but remember to replace NUMBER with the correct ID number of the post_author. UPDATE wp_posts SET post_status='STATUS' WHERE post_author='NUMBER';

How can I drive more traffic to my blog?

There are a couple of components to driving traffic. They are: The actual setup of the blog, Keyword research and targeting, Community research, Ongoing monitoring for keywords and identified blog feeds, Quality commenting, Quality posting, Social media promotion and blogger outreach. All of these are very important, but monitoring and commenting are the keys to driving traffic. There are also some other factors that play into the mix: Who you are (commercial vs. independent blogger, due to the fact that many bloggers have their own commercial agenda). How stimulating or controversial you are (do your posts spark discussion or outrage), or how inquisitive / conversational…

Will my WordPress blog show up in search engines?

WordPress, straight out of the box, comes ready to embrace search engines. Its features and functions guide a search engine through the posts, pages, and categories to help the search engine crawl your site and gather the information it needs to include your site within its database. WordPress comes with several built in search optimization tools, including the ability to use .htaccess to create apparently static URLs called permalinks, blogrolling, and pinging. There are also a number of third party plugins and hacks which can be used for search engine optimization (SEO). However, once you start using various WordPress Themes and customizing WordPress to meet…

Can WordPress power multiple blogs?

If you want multiple blogs using WordPress, you must actually install each separately (that is, as a separate WordPress installation). You can do this whether you have the ability to create multiple databases or are limited to a single database. Please note in WordPress 3.0 there is now a native ability to create multiple blogs, referred to as a network of sites. This is because the codebase for WordPressMU was merged into core.   Multiple Databases You'll need a separate MySQL database for each blog you plan to install. The wp-config.php file will vary for each installation. The lines to change are: define('DB_NAME', 'wordpress'); //…

Can I alphabetize my posts on the front page or in categories?

By default, WordPress organizes and displays posts in descending chronological order. However, there are different WordPress templates you can use to list posts in alphabetical order.   Category Template For example, you may want posts to display in alphabetical order if you have a category named "Glossary", where each post is a definition of a specific term and each term is used as the post title. Edit your theme's category.php file, and make the following changes, just before your main Loop: <?php get_header(); ?> <div id="content"> <ul> <?php // we add this, to show all posts in our // Glossary sorted alphabetically if (is_category('Glossary')) {…

How do I stop my Flash and HTML tags from being stripped in my Posts?

Disable the WYSIWYG editor or click the HTML icon and enter code in the popup box.

How do I change the file upload path?

The default upload path can be changed by adding a line of code to your wp-config.php file. Just BEFORE the line that says require_once(ABSPATH.'wp-settings.php'); add this line: define('UPLOADS', 'wp-content/myimages'); In the example above, this will result in uploads being placed in your wp-content/myimages folder. If 'uploads_use_yearmonth_folders' is enabled your uploads will be saved in wp-content/myimages/2009/01 where 2009 is the current year, and 01 is the current month, in this case January. If the myimages directory does not exist it will be created as long as the parent folder wp-content is writeable.

Uploads stop working after upgrading WordPress

Following a WordPress upgrade you may find uploads stop working. The exact cause of this problem remains unknown, but some users report fixing the problem by simply resaving their upload settings. If you experience this problem, please try the following. Navigate to Admin > Settings > Misc Click the Save Changes button at the bottom. Attempt to upload a file as normal. NOTE: If a media item fails to upload, broken uploads will not be fixed by following the above procedure, a new media item should be uploaded to verify if the fix was successful.

How do I turn off the WYSIWYG editor and get my Quicktags back?

You can turn off the WYSIWYG editor by unchecking the box, Use the visual rich editor when writing , in Your Profile panel; Administration > Profile > Your Profile . That check box can be found at the bottom left on that panel.

Activate the default theme by renaming the folder of the currently active theme. Themes are located in /wp-content/themes/ Do a fresh installation of WordPress by first downloading it again from and then replacing everything but the contents of /wp-content/

If my host doesn’t upgrade, can I still use WordPress?

As PHP5 only functionality becomes more common, and the possibility that a security flaw will be exploited affecting sites running on the PHP 4 platform, exploits not specific to WordPress, the need for web hosts to upgrade will become critical to providing quality customer support. It is unlikely that many will remain with the older versions. WordPress is working hard to maintain backwards compatibility as long as is feasible.

How much work and time will this take?

If your web host provides the alternative, moving from PHP 4 to PHP 5 should be painless and fast. If there are problems with WordPress Themes, Plugins, and other scripts and PHP code, it could be more work, though most are updated by now. In most cases, though, it is as simple as clicking a button or two and waiting for it to happen.

What if my web host doesn’t offer PHP 5?

Most responsible host providers have already made the switch. Ask if they have plans to introduce PHP5 support. If they are planning to introduce the support soon, then it shouldn't be an issue. If they have no such plans, you might want to look around for alternative providers.

Can I ask my web host to install PHP 5 or do I have to do it myself?

This will vary from host to host. In some cases, a request via a support ticket will get you an answer from your web host provider. Others will offer the option through your host's control panel. It is usually a simple procedure.

Will I have to redo my whole site over?

No, in most cases there would be no need to change anything on your site. If you are running a very old version of WordPress you may see better compatibility from upgrading, but then that's good advice no matter what PHP you're using.

Will PHP 5 Break WordPress Themes or Plugins?

WordPress developers and Theme and Plugin authors use the current PHP version 5.2 for some time, staying current with improvements in coding technology. Current and updated versions should be compliant and you should not run into any problems when you upgrade your hosting to a recent PHP version like PHP 5.2.x or 5.3.x. In fact, WordPress runs better on PHP 5 than it does on PHP 4. PHP 4 is outdated and WordPress is not much tested to run on it any longer (not as much as PHP 5 by far at least). And for many plugins and themes this is the same, PHP 5.2…

What Bloggers Need to Know

In addition to understanding how your specific blogging software works, such as WordPress, there are some terms and concepts you need to know.   Archives A blog is also a good way to keep track of articles on a site. A lot of blogs feature an archive based on dates (like a monthly or yearly archive). The front page of a blog may feature a calendar of dates linked to daily archives. Archives can also be based on categories featuring all the articles related to a specific category. It does not stop there; you can also archive your posts by author or alphabetically.

The Difference Between a Blog and CMS?

Software that provides a method of managing your website is commonly called a CMS or "Content Management System". Many blogging software programs are considered a specific type of CMS. They provide the features required to create and maintain a blog, and can make publishing on the internet as simple as writing an article, giving it a title, and organizing it under (one or more) categories. While some CMS programs offer vast and sophisticated features, a basic blogging tool provides an interface where you can work in an easy and, to some degree, intuitive manner while it handles the logistics involved in making your composition presentable…

What is a Blog Content?

Content is the raison d'être for any website. Retail sites feature a catalog of products. University sites contain information about their campuses, curriculum, and faculty. News sites show the latest news stories. For a personal blog, you might have a bunch of observations, or reviews. Without some sort of updated content, there is little reason to visit a website more than once. On a blog, the content consists of articles (also sometimes called "posts" or "entries") that the author(s) writes. Yes, some blogs have multiple authors, each writing his/her own articles. Typically, blog authors compose their articles in a web-based interface, built into the blogging…

What is a “blog”?

"Blog" is an abbreviated version of "weblog," which is a term used to describe websites that maintain an ongoing chronicle of information. A blog features diary-type commentary and links to articles on other websites, usually presented as a list of entries in reverse chronological order. Blogs range from the personal to the political, and can focus on one narrow subject or a whole range of subjects. Many blogs focus on a particular topic, such as web design, home staging, sports, or mobile technology. Some are more eclectic, presenting links to all types of other sites. And others are more like personal journals, presenting the author's…

How to Create a Horizontal Menu

Below is the simple list for our horizontal menu. We recommend you keep your list small as too many will stretch wide across the screen and may cause some layout problems. We've enclosed the list in a division called navmenu. <div id="navmenu"> <ul> <li><a href="<?php echo get_settings('home'); ?>">HOME</a></li> <li><a href="wordpress/recipes/">RECIPES</a></li> <li><a href="wordpress/travel/">TRAVEL</a></li> <li><a href="">WORDPRESS</a></li> </ul> </div> As you can see, within our list we've included a PHP tag for the "home page" and several categories, as well as a link to WordPress, those helpful folks.

CSS&WordPress Common Errors

We all make mistakes. The word "typo" wasn't invented without reason. Here are some of the most common problems that creep up with CSS. Missed Spellings  Just so you know, leftt is not the same as left and this could be the reason something is on the right instead of the left side of your page. Putting a 30ps for a margin won't get much of a result, but 30px will. Missed spelling errors are common and easy to overlook. Luckily, CSS validators can often catch these tiny mistakes for us.

Isolate Your CSS Challenges

Identifying the parent/child relation influences over your web page layout helps to solve a lot of problems, but sometimes the relationships are so complex, it's hard to figure out which section is which and who has influence over which parts. To isolate and identify your various CSS sections, divisions, and classes, here are some simple tricks. Before you begin, be sure and make a backup of all of your main files including your CSS to make sure you have something to recover from if this gets out of control. Once you have identified the culprit and fixed it, make sure you remove these testing features…

The CSS Parent and Child Relationship

One of the biggest problems in designing web pages is understanding where a problem occurs and whose influence might be affecting the problem. This is called the "parent/child relationship" of CSS. As you know, while parents usually have their children's best intentions at heart, children often feel intimidated and screwed up by their parents, so understanding this relationship may help you solve your problems. A WordPress user posted a question on the forum complaining that she wanted her page to feature her header spreading fully across the page's width with the content centered on the page with a lot of space on the left and…

Looking Under the Hood for CSS

Once you have lifted the hood to see the HTML and CSS, it is time to start playing Sherlock Holmes. To start, you have to know what you are looking at and where to find the basic elements to help you find the culprit. The HTML page features all the structural code that sets up the "grid" into which your page sits. Think of it as a map with notes written all over it. The notes are actually pointers to the directions which are found within the CSS file. Scroll down past a lot of <link rel='archives'… information until you see <body>. Below this will…

How to Examine Your HTML and CSS

In order to determine what is going right or wrong with your web page layout, you have to go to the source. This means looking under the hood. Under the pretty hood of your web page, the nice layout you see on your Internet browser, is a whole bunch of code with strange and foreign sounding references. At first glance, it's like looking under the hood of a racing car. You know that all of that junk makes the car go, but what the heck is all that mess under the hood?

What is HTML Tags?

If you want to "design" a specific HTML tag reference, such as a blockquote, the code within the web page may look like this: <blockquote>This is a pithy and brilliant quote that I knew you would enjoy.</blockquote> In the style sheet, the reference to the blockquote would not have a # or period but would just simply list the HTML and then the design elements. This example indents the quote on both sides and puts a blue line on the left side of the quote and makes the text italic. <blockquote> { position: relative; margin: 10px 50px 10px 50px; padding:5px; font-style:italic; border-left:solid blue 4px; }</blockquote>…

What is The CLASS?

The CLASS is a reference to any element on a page that needs to look a specific way when this reference is used. For example, if you frequently want to highlight a word or two within your text (we'll use red as a highlight color in this instance), you might have a CLASS selector in your style sheet like this: .hilite { color: red} and the reference in your HTML might look like this: …this is some text about something I want <span class="hilite">in red</span>. And some more rambling here… As you can see, the difference between ID and CLASS selectors in the style sheet…

What is The ID?

The ID is a reference to a specific unique area on your web page. It is generally seen represented on your HTML web page as an enclosed DIV (division) block: <div id="header">Title of the Page</div> In the style sheet (CSS) the ID selector is referenced as #header and might look like this: #header { position: relative; margin:0; padding:0; height:100px; width: 100%; background: red; color: white;}

What is Stylesheet?

The CSS file is where it all comes together. On every template file within your site there are HTML elements wrapped around your template tags and content. In the stylesheet within each Theme are rules to control the design and layout of each HTML element. Without these instructions, your page would simply look like a long typed page. With these instructions, you can move the building block structures around, making your header very long and filled with graphics or photographs, or simple and narrow. Your site can "float" in the middle of the viewer's screen with space on the left and right, or stretch across…

Are language packs subject to GPL v3 provisions? Themes? Modules?

The GPL v3 FAQ contains this item and this item that discusses the notion of a larger work and what constitutes a larger work. Our interpretation of GPL v3 is that language packs and, more generally, any code (e.g., modules, themes) that interfaces directly with (and would not work without) Sugar Community Edition form a larger work and are thus subject to GPL v3. This is contrasted with extensions that interface with Sugar Community Edition via web services APIs (i.e., SOAP APIs). These extensions run independently of Sugar Community Edition and can presumably work in the absence of Sugar Community Edition, do not form a…

What SugarCRM product does the GPL v3 affect?

Sugar Community edition (formally known as Sugar Open Source). Only Sugar Community edition (starting with the 5.0 release) is affected by GPL v3. Sugar Professional and Sugar Enterprise editions are both offered under commercial licenses, and are thus not affected by this license. SugarCRM's on-demand customers are also not affected by the GPL v3.

What are the advantages of the GPL v3?

Since GPL v3 is based on the most popular license in the open source universe, the community is able to adopt and develop on what is sure to be the de facto standard license. This will insure greater interoperability and enhanced community collaboration as GPL v3 becomes widely adopted in the same manner as earlier versions of the GPL.

Why did SugarCRM change from the SPL to GPL v3?

SugarCRM believes the GPL v3 will become the standard for all open source licenses, and wanted to get a head start on adopting that standard.

What is the GPL v3?

The GNU General Public License v3 (GPL) is the latest iteration of the most widely used free and open source software (FOSS) license in the world. The GPL was created and sponsored by the Free Software Foundation (FSF). Read the full license here.

What happens if a target opts-out or bounces?

If a target opts-out, then we 'check' opted-out in their profile in SugarCRM.  If they bounce and its a temporary error (soft bounce), then we simply count the soft bounce and once it reaches a certain point, they're email address is checked 'invalid' in SugarCRM.  If they bounce and its a permanent error (hard bounce), then they're email address is checked as 'invalid'.  A target that is 'checked' as either opted-out or invalid, will not be included in future inBOX25 email campaigns.

What modules do you support with your solution?

With the latest version, you can leverage targets from Accounts, Leads, Contacts, Targets and Prospects.

Can I authenticate my SugarCRM instance with inBOX25, using a Non-System Administrator account?

Well, the answer is maybe.  The integration function properly does not work as it should, even when all of the permissions are set correctly in SugarCRM (manually).  So it is always recommended using a System Administrator account to properly authenticate.

What is the difference between your Cloud Integration and your Module Integration?

The primary difference between the two integration options is accessibility. Our Module Integration simply introduces our software into SugarCRM and enables users to leverage our solution without ever leaving SugarCRM.  With the Cloud Integration, you will still manage your email campaigns entirely from within the inBOX25 application. It's really a matter of preference as both integrations offer the same functionality.  Our module is available to download and install at no cost, on SugarExchange:

What versions of SugarCRM do you support?

Currently we support SugarCRM 6.5 or higher, including Pro+ and Community Edition.

What does the inBOX25 integration provide me for SugarCRM and why would I want to use it?

inBOX25 is a Commercial Email Service Provider (ESP) and core competency is high-volume, permission based email marketing.  At our core, our solution enables organizations to properly create, deliver and track high impact email marketing campaigns.  Even though SugarCRM offers 'email campaigns' as a feature in their native application, it still lacks many of the fundamentals required to properly deploy commercial email.  For example, SugarCRM users are required to provide their own outbound mail service (SMTP) in order to send email campaigns through SugarCRM.  This is inherently problematic because most users will either utilize their corporate email server and risk disrupting their internal email services, should…

What URL is needed for the Outlook Plug-in?

The server URL to use will be similar to the URL that you use to login to the Sugar application. However, you will replace the index.php filename at the end of the URL and replace it with soap.php. For example, change to .

How do I set up a form on my website so that when a potential client comes to the site and fills out a form, it is automatically inserted as a lead into Sugar?

There is an example for this in your Sugar installation, the file SUGAR/examples/ExampleLeadCapture.php. You'll need to modify ../leadCapture.php as well, so that it has a valid user and user-hash (or password). To do a simple test, you can modify the following line in leadCapture.php: 'cheeto' => array('name'=>'admin', 'pass'=>' 6958b4fa4bfc56342634184c21085543'), Replace the "6958b4fa4bfc56342634184c21085543" with the hashed admin password from your MySQL database.

How do I change the company logo displayed on the top-left of the screen?

Replace the company_logo.png file, found in the include/images/ directory, and in each theme's images/ directory. Each theme has its own directory in themes/, such as themes/Sugar/. *company_logo.png is a 212×40 transparent image.

After I install Sugar and login as an administrator user, I see a warning message, Warning: The config.php file needs to be made unwritable for security purposes. How do I get rid of the warning?

On Linux/UNIX systems, navigate to your Sugar installation directory. You can see the current file permissions of the config.php file with this command: # ls -al config.php -rw-r–r– 1 nobody nobody 2485 18 Apr 18:06 config.php To change the file to unwritable, use this command: # chmod 444 config.php Then confirm the file permissions have changed by using the first command again: # ls -al config.php -r–r–r– 1 nobody nobody 2485 18 Apr 18:06 config.php The warning message within Sugar should no longer be present.

“Maximum execution time” error when populating demo data

In the file SUGAR_HOME\install\populateSeedData.php, there are lines that read: Set the max time to one minute. ini_set("max_execution_time", "60"); Modify the value of 60 to a larger amount. The value is in seconds, so a new value of 300 equates to 5 minutes, 600 equates to 10 minutes, and 3600 equates to 60 minutes.

I get this error when I’m installing Sugar: Database admin user name and/or password is invalid (Error 1251: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client).

There are multiple ways to workaround the error that you're seeing, including upgrading pieces of the architecture, or modifying MySQL to utilize the old password hashing algorithm. One quick workaround is to issue the following MySQL query: SET PASSWORD FOR 'username'@'localhost' = OLD_PASSWORD('new_password_here');

During my Sugar install, there’s a warning that says “PHP Memory Limit >= 10M Warning: (Set this to 10M or larger in your php.ini file)”. How do I get rid of it?

1) The installer should point you to the location of your php.ini file. Open that file. 2) Look for a line that reads: memory_limit = 8M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (8MB) 3) Change the 8 to a value 10 or higher, depending on the available memory on your web server. 4) Save the change to the php.ini file. 5) Restart your web server. NOTE: PHP will only honor the memory_limit parameter in php.ini if you compiled PHP with the –enable-memory configuration option (see

Use temporary CSS styles to Update an old document

If you’re trying to convert an HTML document to be HTML+CSS or XHTML it helps if you understand the layout of the old page. The best way to do that is to use temporary CSS styles to style the tables and cells within the document to show borders and spacing. table {   border: solid 2px red;   margin : 2px; } td {   border: dotted 1px blue;   padding : 2px; } This will set the outer borders of the tables to a thick red line while the borders of the cells themselves are a dotted blue line. If the document uses DIVs for layout, then simply…

Testing web applications in Internet Explorer

Many developers use Internet Explorer to test their web pages before they upload to the web server. But this can result in an information bar that reads indicates that some of the content on this page may be blocked for security purposes. To get the script to load, you might have to click a link to “Allow blocked content.” Internet Explorer version 6 service pack 2 introduced a security feature where it blocks JavaScript and CSS (in essence any external documents) from running on web pages that are opened from a local machine rather than from the Internet. This is a security feature to keep…

Solving problems in Web Design

Sometimes figuring out what is wrong with your Web design can be very frustrating. Some things can be very difficult or impossible to fix, but if you are systematic about your analysis, you can find the problem and fix it more quickly.

How to Preview your Web Pages

When you preview a Web page on your hard drive, all the browser-related functions (like JavaScript, CSS, and images) should work exactly as they would on your Web server.

How to Test Different CSS Media Types

When you are using CSS, you can create separate style sheets for different media types. This is one of the best ways to build printer friendly Web pages – you just assign a different style sheet for the "print" media type. But How Do You Test the Style Sheet? Sure, if you have a cell phone, you can test the style sheet by going to your page on the phone. But it's nice to be able to build up the basic styles before you publish the page and the style sheet live. That way you can be sure that it won't be seen by anyone…

How to test Mobile Web Pages and Applications

When you are building web pages and applications for mobile devices, one of the most important steps you can take is testing. Testing gives you a good idea of what your readers are going to experience when they come to your site, and by fixing the major problems ahead of time, you can avoid issues with your customers later. Testing a page or application for mobile uses the same checklist as testing for a full-sized browser. You need to check that the page looks good before you post it, and then check it after it’s live. But one step that many designers ignore is testing…

Graded Browser Support

Web pages are hard to design. One of the major reasons they are hard to design is because there are so many different browsers that can be used to view them. You've got your basics IE, Firefox, Opera, and Safari, oh, and now Chrome. Then you've got cell phones and PDAs as well as gaming systems, printers, text browsers, screen readers, and so on. And most of these browsers have multiple versions with different attributes as well. This is the most common browser support plan designers have. Most designers feel that they should be supporting all, or at least as many browsers as they possibly…

Web Design troubleshooting Checklist

I get asked all the time how to fix various problems in Web designs. The challenge is that while there is usually only one way to get your design right, there are hundreds or thousands of ways to get it wrong. Problems can be as simple as not uploading a file or as complex as having the CSS cascade cause unexpected conflicts. But finding the problem can be frustrating. By being methodical in your approach to problems, you can do two things: Remove the aspects that are working Narrow down your focus to just the areas that are not working It can be tempting to…

What is the Error?

The other critical element to a Web error page report is describing the error. While some designers might want you to include as much detail as possible (steps to reproduce, OS and browser version, other applications running, time of day, phase of the moon, etc.) at the very minimum include what needs to be fixed. Don't expect a fast response if you say something like "There's a typo on page 2 <URL>" Also, if you're reporting a spelling error, it helps if you include the word as it was misspelled as well as the correct spelling. It's much easier to search for the wrong spelling…

What is the URL?

You should always include the URL of the page with the error. Don't ever assume that the owner or Web developer will know what page you're looking at. If the URL is really long, or you've forgotten it, write down what you searched for or how you got to the page in question so that the owner can get to it easily. If you don't include a URL, don't expect your request to be taken seriously. Most Web developers are working all the time, and don't have time to go searching for a page where they wrote "teh" instead of "the". Yes, it would be…

Follow these guidelines to get errors you've found on your websites or other websites fixed.

Troubleshoot CSS

CSS can be tricky. There are lots of things that can go wrong, or at least not as you expect, and trying to determine what the problem is can be almost as hard as writing the CSS in the first place. The key to finding and fixing your CSS problems is three-fold: finding the problem isolating the cause fixing it Find and Fix CSS Problems by Thinking Small While your goal is, of course, to fix the problem, but in order to do that, you need to find the problem. And the best way to do that is to think small. What is the smallest…

How to Test Web Page Designs

How to Test Take your testing seriously enough to make some simple test cases (a software design concept). You should also document them at least to some moderate degree. For example, you could list your expected results, save screenshots for every “browser and test subject” pair, and add a note stating what is problematic and what needs to be fixed. You should also indicate the date of the test and maybe the revision id of the version control system your tested design is residing on. By the way, I am strongly for using a version control system. It could be SVN, Git, or something else,…

Why should you use Responsive Design?

Think about your typical desktop browser. Even if it is not maximized, it almost certainly has a width of at least 960 pixels — that is a lot of space to place lots of columns of text and images. If you compare that with a smartphone in portrait mode, you are looking at a device with about 480 pixels of width. That is half the screen space. And a feature phone has even less space, 320 pixels or less in many cases. If you create a page with a fixed-width layout 960 pixels wide, it will look great on your desktop monitor. But the first…

How do you create a Responsive Web Design?

CSS media queries are the answer. Back with CSS 2.1 we were introduced to the idea of print style sheets. These are style sheets written just to style how the page should look when it is printed out by using media types. For example: <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="print-styles.css" media="print"> Media types were a good start, but some devices didn't use them as they were intended, sending information that said they were a desktop browser when they were really a small handheld device. This made it difficult to use them correctly for anything beyond print. CSS media queries were introduced as part of CSS3 and they…

What is Responsive Web Design?

Responsive design is a style of web design that responds to the user as they arrive at the web page. Rather than forcing a mobile user to see a desktop site, a laptop user with a small screen to scroll horizontally to see a wide-screen monitor site, or a wide-screen monitor to view a site as a mobile customer might like, instead the design looks at each of these scenarios and adapts to display the content most effectively. Web Pages Must Be Flexible and Adapt I've said it many times, the web is not print. And with more and more different types and sizes of…

Once you’ve decided the placement, learn the basics of how to Lay Out Web Pages

When you create a Web design, one of the more overlooked aspects of the design is the layout. Now, many people think about how to do a layout (CSS, tables, frames, etc.), but the basics of Web layout are often completely ignored. Space and Whitespace Use the whole space, but don't be specific in your use. In other words, use relatively sized layout sections on your Web pages, so that they expand and contract to fit the browser window. Keep screen resolution in mind. While the majority of computer users have moved away from 640×480 resolution, keep that in mind when you're designing. Having customers…

Find the points of interest on your page

Points of interest are the focal points of a design – the places where your eye is drawn to. By changing the spacing around those points of interest you can affect how those items are viewed on the page. For example, an image might be the focal point of your Web page. You could choose to center the image on the page, but that's boring and flat. Instead look at the other elements on the page and change the margins around your image to create a design that heightens the interest in that picture. On this sample page, I placed three elements: a headline, a…

Where you place your elements can make a difference?

As they say in real estate, there are three important rules: "Location. Location. Location." If the Mona Lisa were stored in my aunt's garage, it wouldn't have the effect on people that it does hanging in the Louvre. It's still the same painting, but if it were sitting next to cans of old paint, a dirty lawn mower, and a dust covered junker car it takes on the aspect of its surroundings. Now, I don't think that most people have a "ghetto" location on their Web pages, but effective placement provides the visual hierarchy and structure to your Web page. If you can engage your…

Where are the other elements on the page?

In some ways this appears to be the most obvious part of design – after all if you already have a logo in the upper left, you're not going to place content on top of it. But you also need to think about the context of your positions. Placing an ad block in the middle of a text block implies a sense of connection between the two elements. Placing a horizontal line after a headline or by-line can create a sense of disconnect between the title or by-line and the content.

How does the element relate to the Page Goals?

Knowing your goals and the goals for the page are key to placement. That's why ads are found in similar places on Web pages. If the goal is to get people to click on them or notice them, then placing them in locations where historically people look and click helsp them to meet their goals.

How to decide where your elements should go in the Layout

When you're starting a new design, no matter what your design methodology is, you start with a blank page. There is nothing on the Web page – so the first thing you'll do is put something up on the page. But do you think about the placement of those elements or do you just throw them onto the page willy nilly? Good designers don't allow the position and placement of their designs to occur randomly. They think about: what the element is how the element relates to the page goals where the element fits with the other elements on the page

White Space Definition

White space is the empty spaces in a design. White space is used to separate disparate design elements and group similar ones. White space is the lack of graphics or text in the layout. White space is not always “white” — it is the empty parts of the page, but if the page has a different background color that will be the color of the white space. White Space Characters   In HTML there are several characters that create white space. They are: a space, a tab, and a carriage return (or linefeed). Also Known As: white space, empty space, negative space, breathing room Alternate…
