It depends a lot on the project. Some projects, particularly smaller ones, I just jump into coding them, while others, such as my latest item, have a lot more planning involved.
I find that it is always best to first design the user experience, what would you like the user to see and how he will interact with it. Then you code it up.
I usually go the other way with this one, though that might be because I’m not much of a designer, but rather a coder. I will work to get all the functionality working the way I want, then I will improve it for the user. Just like with the pyramid: the functionality is the bottom, and the user experience is the peak.
Yeah, unfortunately, if you want a consistent experience you have to use something like jQuery.
There are a variety of jQuery plugins you can use.
JeffreyWay saidyes they have nice products, ive bought them all so far
I wanted to send a shout-out to a recent CodeCanyon author, WebFactory. He/they are doing a tremendous job so far. In little over a month, they already have around a dozen items for sale. Thanks to excellent branding, submission consistency, and item quality, WebFactory will be in a very comfortable position this time next year!
Do you actually use most of the items you buy, or just keep them around as an ever-growing collection?
It’s awesome +10
Would this be plugins that are mostly widget oriented, such as a plugin that adds extra WP widgets?
Cool. Go for it.
Looks like an interesting idea, though I’m not sure of its application. Can you give an example where something like this would be used?
