With most of the placement challenges solved it was time to start piping things up and making it all work again. An item on my punch list to think about when rebuilding this screen was to rethink what notifications looked like. In the (now legacy) screen I used a standard admin_notice where applicable, as most […]

In the last update, progress was made by moving both a UI component and an Action from the Advanced settings screen to the Stats screen. This was a double-win because not only did the UI make more sense on the Stats screen, it freed up some space on the Advanced settings screen too. Because enough […]

After adjusting the game plan to include additional Extension roll-in, I got back to work in building out the new Advanced settings screen based on the rough sketches I came up with.

After getting the ball rolling insofar as a feature/update list for the Advanced settings screen in SearchWP 3.0 (yet to be released at the time of this writing) and one of the things to do being integrate the Manage Ignored extension into SearchWP core, I wanted to explain a bit about my approach to Extension […]

Introducing the New Developer Experience – The Visual Studio Blog – Site Home – MSDN Blogs. I haven’t used a Microsoft product (aside from browser testing or helping with a family/friend computer issue) in a number of years, but I’m always interested in seeing what they’ve got cooking.

Morris.js. I love nice looking charts. These are nice looking charts. Powered by jQuery and Raphaël, this charting library is reminiscent of what you’d see in Google Analytics and many other metrics system we all stare at quite a bit of the time.

Kevin Fox – Google+ – I was writing a blog post about three recent changes to…. There’s a lot to read in this post, but it outlines a number of questions I’ve had as of late. Google’s never been looked at as a company that really optimized the design experience. That is until as of […]

HTML5 Clear. There’s no question that Clear‘s UI is innovative. In fact I think it’s genius. It only took about four minutes for someone to replicate it in HTML5 and it’s surely worth a look on your applicable touch-capable device.
