1994 Was a Long Time Ago – Fix your website! July 29, 2009 11:14 amPosted by Doug McCaughan in : Publishing, Technology
I need to offer some professional advice to some of you. 1994 was a long time ago. Some things your website should NOT be doing:
- do not resize my browser!
- do not automatically play music or videos! If you insist on doing this, do not loop the music/video and definitely do give me the ability to stop or pause the obnoxiousness.
- do not tell me your website is under construction! Your website should be an ever changing, living, breathing entity. Either hide the elements/pages that are not ready for prime time or put them up as-is and change them when ready. You should have a development server hidden from the public, a staging server which a limited amount of public eyes (testers) can see, and a production server that is live to the world. At the bare minimum you should have a development server and a production server. Never make changes directly on your production server.
