Drupal 6: Online Presentation of Data: Part 4 of 10
By Tom Geller Now we're going to take a look at some settings that seem small, but can make a big difference in how your information appears. It's annoying that these settings are so hidden in Drupal because pretty much every time I design a site I wonder, "Where are those settings again?" Well, I'll show you. ...Read More »

Drupal 6: Online Presentation of Data: Part 3 of 10
By Tom Geller There is one Drupal specific point I think we should address ahead of time, that is whether to store a personal data as nodes or as users.

By Laurie Burruss In Web Site Planning and Wireframing: Hands-On Training, Laurie Burruss, director of digital media at Pasadena City College, demonstrates the essentials of creating a web site with a polished, professional appearance and a compelling user experience. The goal of this hands-on course is to deconstruct a web site's home page in order to identify its structural elements and feature set. Using Acrobat Pro and the web developer's toolkit, Laurie shows how to capture a homepage and create, in another layer, its visual framework (wireframe). ...Read More »

Web Site Planning and Wireframing: Part 11 of 12
By Laurie Burruss We're going to start by outlining the main structural elements of this homepage. So we've got our header area done, and now we are ready to do our content area. I'm going to scroll down to that area and I'm going to click on my tool that has text and a rectangle, and don't get too picky with this. Just try to guess- timate. These are not design or content creation tools. You just have to play along and they don't snap, so you just do your best job. ...Read More »

Web Site Planning and Wireframing: Part 10 of 12
By Laurie Burruss We're now ready to go and start creating our wireframe inside of Acrobat Pro. I'm going to my toolbar and launching Acrobat Pro version 9. You won't see much when it opens but don't fear. Come up to File and choose File > Create PDF > From File, or the keyboard shortcut is Command+N, Ctrl+N. I'll navigate out to my Desktop. ...Read More »

Drupal 6: Online Presentation of Data: Part 2 of 10
By Tom Geller Keep in mind that Drupal essentially is just an attractive and flexible interface to a back end database. So it's worthwhile to take a look at that database to understand what exactly happens when you create, modify, and delete content in Drupal. This understanding will make Drupal administration a lot clearer overall and it opens up a world of possibilities if you are an advanced programmer or a database administrator. ...Read More »

Web Site Planning and Wireframing: Part 7 of 12
By Laurie Burruss We've talked about how information being well designed and having a hierarchy is important. But what makes you want to stay at a well-designed homepage? For me designing a homepage is all about thinking 3D, not 2D. It actually is a house. ...Read More »

Web Site Planning and Wireframing: Part 6 of 12
By Laurie Burruss Continuing our discussion of Web design principles, we should take a look at information hierarchy. The way to think about it is WE SEE, THEN WE READ. Web designers often do 4 or 5 jobs. They design the graphic elements, they create the interface design, navigation design, interaction design and often are required to design the information. But it should be done on a hierarchical basis that makes sense from the most important to the least important, from the general to the specific. ...Read More »
