Themify Launched 81

Themify Launched

You may probably notice that I haven't been updating Web Designer Wall for a while. I've been working very hard on a new project called Themify, a premium WordPress theme shop. It is a collaboration with Darcy Clarke, who is an amazing developer. Each theme is packed a framework and bunch of custom widgets. With the framework, you can apply theme settings, style everything, apply skins, and import/export the setting data. Let me know what your thoughts. Also, don't forget to follow us on Twitter @themify.

ScrollTo Posts With jQuery 122

ScrollTo Posts With jQuery

Inspired by the CargoCollective and David DeSandro's site, I asked my Twitter followers (@nickla) on how to do the scrollto posts with jQuery. Within a day, Ben Bodien of Neutron Creations sent back a quick demo on how to replicate the similar result with the ScrollTo plugin. The script finds your current view position and scroll to the next or previous post accordingly. Check out the demo to see what I'm talking about.

Cultural Considerations for Global Websites 91

Cultural Considerations for Global Websites

Web designers are a highly creative bunch. Whilst most will probably have a natural eye for what looks good and what doesn’t, experience is everything in the world of web design, and learning is a key part of the process en-route to the top. One of the fundamentals of any design – be it web or print – is that it’s the audience that counts, not you.
