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

    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 ;)
