Jeffrey Veen: Making A Better Open Source CMS: A rant from Jeffrey Veen about Open Source CMS usability. I agree with some of his points, but disagree with his characterizations. In other words, he makes the choices sound very easy. In Open Source CMS development (as in any other development environments that have a widely seperated user base) not every user wants everything to be spoon fed, just like every user does not want to have to understand the inner working and settings for a “pingback”. There is a delicate balance that has to be struck. (Though I agree that many developers tend to forget the differences between the developer model and the user model). The one item in his list that I am striving towards (for WordPress) is to write task-based documentation first. Spolsky and his paper on Technical Specifications come to mind. Via: UI Designer

Web Design Practices | Faceted Classification: “77% of sites using faceted classification provided faceted navigation, but no facet-based advanced search.”. That would be a very interesting feature addition to WordPress, search by category. If someone does not beat me to it, I will try to put something together. Via: Digital Web Magazine

When your feed is easier to read than your Blog itself

This is an alarming trend in many blogs that I want to subscribe to. The most interesting factoid in this complaint of mine is that many of these blogs belong to big shots in the application development, promotion and design arena. In many cases they provide ample reasons for their blogs’ appearance (much of which I disagree with personally) but since they are the masters of their domain, my opinion really does not matter. In some cases, a lot of their readers agree with their design tactics and believe that they are appropriate and even well justified. I need to flesh out my thoughts and realize that an accusation like this is irrelevant without any examples to look at directly. But since antagonism is not my intent and I quite like and respect most of these people, I will refrain from pointing out any particular links. I might be wrong […]
