While developers may love diving under the hood, those are usually marketing people who end up using content management systems and paying money for web design agencies. And so great content management systems must be built with the actual content managers in mind first. One of such systems is ImpressPages.

Are you familiar with blank WordPress themes? These themes are also known as starter themes, naked themes or base themes, and they serve as starting points for you to create your own theme. These themes count with basic boilerplates that you can custom the way you need without having to start everything from scratch. When you start from a blank theme you will have basic WordPress PHP, CSS, and HTML code ready for your customization needs. This is good because it will make your life easier when you need a new theme but you don’t want to do all the base work again, which reduces the time you spend coding and helps your workflow process.

    Creatives know how complicated and costly the usual process of making a professional website is. As a matter of fact, designers would like nothing better than to take matters into their own hands, but the whole problem revolves around HTML coding – so it would be great if something absolved them of these concerns, wouldn’t it? Luckily, a stampede of website building tools has invaded the web over the past few years, and most of them offer their services for free.

    These DIY platforms cross out the issue of coding and allow their users to focus entirely on being creative. In short, they help save energy, time, and money. Yet, you’d have to know which ones are the most worthwhile. Website-Builder is more than qualified to fill in for that description, and it has an ambivalent reach: both ambitious ‘laymen’ and passionate designers can equally benefit from using this platform. It is easy, fast, and yet doesn’t overlook important aspects, such as proper design tools and high aesthetic standards.

  • For years the traditional method of website designing has been that the client has to hire two people tackle this process, brining on a designer and developer.

    The designer works on the graphics of the website using Photoshop or another design platform as per the instructions of the client, make the final adjustments and then pass it along to the developer. The developer will write the code for that picture which will turn the picture of the website into a real website. I mean when the code will be uploaded on a webhost the site will go live.

    As a web designer, I’m always snapping screenshots of inspiring websites I come across, for personal documentation, or for client presentations. It’s a common practice for many designers, and if you’re grabbing more than a few quick screens, it can get rather time consuming. I’m always looking for ways to streamline my workflow, and ShrinkTheWeb has helped me do just that.

  • When it comes to drag ‘n’ drop and reordering elements with JavaScript, jQuery UI’s sortable widget is by far the most popular.

    There is also a tutorial at WRD for using it with server-side scripting.

    Sortable is a JavaScript library that performs the same task without any JavaScript framework.

    Sortable

    It uses the native HTML5 drag and drop API, has a small footprint (<2kb gzipped) and works on touch devices too.

    Also, besides single lists, items can be moved between multiple lists too.

    UI kits are very useful for starting and completing  a web design project quickly.

    PixelKit, a premium UI kit brand, is sharing a lightweight version of their Modern Touch UI kit exclusively with WRD.

    It is available in PSD and there are items for navigation, slider, accordion, form controls, social links and more.
