Smashing Magazine’s Experts Panel

Before an article is published, it’s reviewed by independent reviewers — respected members of the design community who provide feedback to authors and review technical details. We are very grateful for the fantastic work of our Experts Panel, and the magazine wouldn’t have the same quality without their profound expertise and support.

    I wanted to say I think this is my favorite site on the web by far. Amazing amount of resources, tool and suggestions.

    Question:
    I was wondering if there was any way to alter the pagination, throughout the site to show all? My only issues, if i can even call it that, with the site, is that search results force you to stroll through many many pages.

    Thanks for your consideration,

    Stu

  2. 2

    I guess that “about us” page is here since ever but never noticed.
    I have only one critic to your magazine: why is the search done through google, when it could be much nicer and effectiver done by your own means?

  3. 3

    Super informative Seite – ABER schade, dass es sie nicht auch in deutsch gibt
    (man(n) bekommt aber halt nicht alles im Leben :-)

  4. 4

    You’ve revamped the “About” page with much more Smashing information! I feel like I’ve learned a lot more about Smashing Magazine – great write-up!

  5. 5

    What is the address to submit something other than a calendar for publication to give as a freebie? Thank you.

  6. 6

    @Frank K.

    Yeah but the most good sites are in english and if you wanna be a good designer and want to be better you should read english articles more than german articles. It’s like learning a programming language. If you don’t want read english papers you will be lost. :P

  7. 7

    The only thing that sucks on SM is that sometimes there come multiple new articles on one day, but sometimes there comes nothing new in 2 or 3 days. But it’s still a great website ;)

    This about page is quite new. There was an earlier one we’ve deleted.

    @Radeksonic: Articles are published every day. I don’t remember a 2-3 days delay. There might be some exceptions though.

    Great work!

    Thanks for every article!

  42. 42

    Smashing about page indeed!

    Only setback I ever had with SM was the unexpected (sucessive) delays on the much expected Smashing book. But I’m sure that even you guys were surprised and must be way more upset than we are. I’m really looking forward to it.

    Keep up the good work.

    Not being funny but the cartoons drawings of the team are absolutely shocking… they kinda look like the flintstones. hopelessly out-of-date and rather embarassing.

  51. 51

    Amazing, Thank you!

  52. 52

    I appreciate Smashing Magazine so much. I am the web design lead for my company, and I can’t count how many times I have sent SM links to my team as recommended reading. I make it a point to read every day. SM has taught me and inspired me and for that I send my sincerest thanks.

  53. 53

    I’m writing here because I can hardly find the customer center.

    There isn’t any menu to track my pacakge or even customer center!
    Where is it now? I have to know Please reply me, sooner the better.

  54. 54

    mailing of printed book not professional. lot of delays. lot of complaints.

    what really is the bottleneck?

  56. 56

    By the way guys, Wikipedia has an article on Smashing Magazine. Although, it’s not been updated in a while. Maybe someone who’s an editor there could update your outdated Smashing Magazine article over at Wikipedia :)

  57. 57

    Best resource for webdesign and web stuff, where it is from? It’s from Germany! ;P BTW: Nice Praxisbuch Web 2.0, Vitaly Friedman!

    First, forgive for my english, i am a brazilian curious. The Smashing Magazine is a reference on the web! No doubt about it! At personal level, you help me a lot. Thanks to you, me, a webdesigner beginner from a small town of Brazil, follow the latest trends in the subject, learn the best pratices and get ahead of people with more experience than me ;).
    Thanks to all of you who make this blog, and it remains ever alive and present in the world of webdesigners and developers!

    Hi Fellas, only one thing, the “Smashing Time Line” is not updated, which is the version for mobile phone that you did

  66. 66

    wow is the only word which came to my mind when i saw your articles for the very first time.
    Thanks once Again.

  67. 67

    thank’s for everything!

  68. 68

    Do you currently have any programs which could help teach me to design my own e-store? Please let me know when you might develop such a program if you currently do not. Thank you so much. One other thing there are programs that allow you to read literature with features that turn the page. I might need that feature as well because I write spiritual prose and prayers, I make prayer pillows and things like that. Let me know if you can help me. Again thank you Joyce
    Thank you in advance for your consideration.

    We enjoy keeping up with your site but I must say your about page is great too, love how you included statistics, success and even the not so great comic strip failure. :) Nicely done!

    Hello From Jakarta…

    Smashing Magazine makes the best bread in town.

    Hello there! I am here for the first time. First impression is that you have a friendly design and an interface of your site.

    Best wishes

  75. 75

    Great job of all your team.Regards.

  76. 76

    I really started reading a lot these days… thanks to smashingmagazine team… this is what i would like to read…

    thank you so much

  77. 77

    Doing a paper for college on the make up of your company. Could use more info like how many people on your board of directors- more about how you got to where you are today and where you see yourself in the future. SM is one of my favorite places on the web and is so helpful. That is why I chose you for my paper, but I need 3 pages and there isn’t that much info on your company on this page. BTW- just ordered your book last week- hope it makes it to the US.

  78. 78

    Just want to say: Keep it up. Nothing else.

  79. 79

    The amount of information and resources that you guys pump out on a weekly basis through the SmashingMagazine website and your networks is amazing. As a designer/developer I’m always being constantly inspired and informed by all of the posts and info. Thanks! Big thanks!

  80. 80

    Up to more years of smashing magazines and articles!

  81. 81

    You guys are great mind readers!

    Can someone tell me where the smashing forums have gone?!?

  87. 87

    Even the About page is smashing. Done with care, patience and quality , which are now synonymous with Smashing Magazine.
    The Smashing Book had very interesting stuff about the genesis of SM ; can that be included on this page ? Just a thought.

  88. 88

    This is my favorite site.
    Thanks for all!

  89. 89

    Ok. I’m a newbie at this site, but it does seem to be one of the most reliable ones I’ve run into so far.

    Comic cartoons are not often conveying the exact message, or rather stay away from reader’s expectations. please avoid this space with some other stuff.

  94. 94

    This is my header magazine!!!

  95. 95

    Smashing Mag has become my bible and I design by it… I cannot go a day without soaking in some sort of inspiration from it.

    thank you SM!

  96. 96

    Wow! I’ve been researching the search engines for hours due to this and that i eventually thought it was the following!

  97. 97

    I’s been a year and i have been regularly reading smashing mag, a creative block , some leisure time , a bit of R & D , and i know what i should be doing. By far its still in the top of my list for web logs and magazines on webdesign to read. 3 cheers to the guys who work hard so that we easily get great articles to read. Thanks to the whole team.
    Looking forward to some more interesting and innovative creations and articles.

  98. 98

    i realised only now, reading your about page, that you live in freiburg. the city of my dreams.. awesome!

  99. 99

    Like the new redesign, its just a shame that most of the whitespace has been linked to the smashing shop.. Clever, but irritating.

  100. 100

    I visit this site for years and only now I realize that you are from Freiburg – just around the corner :-) Keep up the good work! Greetings from Stuttgart, Oliver

  119. 119

    Too good carry on !

  120. 120

    Ach nee. Smashing ist aus Freiburg? Das ist ja großartig. Wusste gar nicht, dass sowas Gutes aus Deutschland kommen kann.

  121. 121

    One of my computers runs IE8 and your site is completely distorted!!!

  122. 122

    Hi – could you recommend any good UX designers?

  123. 123

    Thank you. I love this fabulous web site.

  124. 124

    SmashingMagazine has been my goto place for web design tools and best practices since early 2007. Nearly 7 years! And the clean look of the site always inspires me. Thanks guys/gals! I am reading a sample of the Mobile Web Handbook, and it reminded me a of something I read not too long ago about designing for mobile. If you have a desktop-first design, or the desktop is just a portion of your target audience, you will often have things like media/images, navigation and text that needs to be trimmed/changed for hand-held devices. This may be to optimize for performance or free up screen real-estate. But maybe the larger philosophical question is, if I don’t need it on a smaller device, do I really even need it to begin with on my desktop site? This obviously depends very much on context and audience. Don’t get me wrong. A client may still need that large image or logo. There are things that make sense at 1900 x 1200 but are not well suited for devices with limited screen/bandwidth. But as a principle, and in my humble opinion, desktop sites will almost always reap the benefit of a mobile-first strategy. Mobile web “constraints” should not be looked at as constraints. They are making a better web.

    The Forums closed in April. Here is an old text about what happened:
    Merely one year after its introduction the Smashing forum will be closed. it’s an open secret – as everybody can see – that the Smashing forum is not eactly the happening place. Frankly speaking, it’s all but Smashing. When it comes right down to it, the forum never even had a chance. Having survived the instant floods of spam mails and SEOs in its first days of existence, it’s never been capabale to grow by itself as Google would’nt index it. Today it’s still being abused as dump for links and advertising which is a source of nuisance to all honest forum members, who have used the forum to discuss webdesign topics with other professionals, who sought advice or contributed useful input. We thank all of these faithful members. But now the time has come to say goodbye. The server is going to be closed down next week. You may rest assure that your data will safely be deleted; they are not going to be used for any other purposes. See you at Smashing Magazine!

  129. 129

    I like it very much because it has very helpful articles of various topics like different culture and the latest news. I am a googler and search on many topics.

    Smashing magazine is based on WordPress. The built-in search functionality of WP is not so great. There are lots of articles and plugins on the web about changing the default WP search to Google Custom search. Why? Google gives concise and relevant results.

    I could argue with you the styling of the embedded Google search is a bit off, this is really hard to adapt, and on the other hand, it gives users an experience they know.

    What do you suggest with this? “when it could be much nicer and effectiver done by your own means?”

    Well … IE8 is like 4 years old. Nobody expects your 40 year old car to run like a bright, shiny new one, right? IE is unsafe and it sucks anyway ;-P Better use Chrome or Firefox ;-) IE SHALL BURN IN HELL, harharhar.
