Chad, Firebug Guide for Web Designers
Firebug is one of the most common developer tools used out there. I know that for me it is something I use to try to discover what is going on with a clients site and try to give some insight to the developer to fix it. So last week I came across a great article that gives a good introduction to using firebug.
Mark, Your Landing Page Sucks!
When we do our planning here at Code Greene we always wait until the end to do the homepage with our clients. The homepage of any website in my opinion is often the very most important page of the site. The homepage acts sort of like the grand unification of the website. I see the purpose of the homepage is to be a place that user’s initial reaction is “oh this is a good site” and secondly its used to point them to the most important parts of the site. In some cases a site can be really flat and the homepage or landing page may do almost all the work of the site, in those cases it has to be perfect. Recently I saw an article on landing pages and thought it further delved into some good examples. Check it out and rethink your homepage or landing page if it sucks.
