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

      This is a very useful site. I is a good point of reference and place to listen to what respect industry experts are say. Also a good place to point your clients to if they wont listen to just you. #Thinkpeacock

    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?

    @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

    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.

    With all the design love and usability love you give us, what’s up with the ugly table at “Who Produces This Fantastic Resource?” section?

    You could put a better looking table :)

    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.

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

    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.

    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!

    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?”

    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.
