If you’re like me, you often register for a website, hit the “Remember My Password” button in the browser, and totally forget what the password was to begin with. Normally this isn’t an issue – as you’ll always have that password saved.
But what if you need to tell someone else that password, or perhaps log in on another computer?
The web is an ever-evolving medium – it never stays the same for more than a moment! That is why your website needs to be updated frequently – not just in content, but in design. Your website should be updated to stay current with the newest design practices as well as the newest tech tools and functionality.
This article discusses some simple things you can change on an old website without much effort or re-working of the HTML coding – ideal for situations where you don’t want to go for a full re-design but want to make some minor changes to improve your website’s appeal.
In a previous article about fonts and web standards, we discussed the problems designers face with fonts on the web and some various solutions. Today’s article brings an update to the field in the form of a few new contenders on the web-font battlefield.
Large photo galleries can be a pain to set up and manage. When you are dealing with 100 or more images, you are in for some serious HTML data entry – tons of lines of code with only a few differences in each line.
In this article, I’ll provide a sample script that I have used and adapted for several galleries and other similar tasks. This article is meant for developers, but I will do my best to take as much of the “lingo” out of it as I can, and explain and document it well. Even if you don’t know programming or PHP at all, this should be a useful tool for you. I developed this with only a basic knowledge of PHP syntax and a bit of guess and check.

One of the more challenging obstacles in website design are the limits imposed on designers by the idea of “web fonts”. Web fonts are the few type faces which are installed on every system globally. To maintain a consistent look to all users, most designers will stick to using those few fonts (Verdana, Arial, Times, Georgia, and Palatino are most common) or use images to replace headers. This former solution causes a very stale, plain look that users see on every website they visit. The latter can seriously hurt your search engine rankings. Neither of those sound very appealing!
Innovative and curious as the developers are Pro Web Marketing are, we’ve found several alternatives that can avoid the downsides of traditional solutions.
Today, communication goes way beyond the telephone and “snail mail.” Businesses have changed the way they conduct transactions both with their staff and clients. E-mail has now surpassed all other conventional communications and with that comes security issues that arise when the email is being transferred from the sender to the recipient. Hackers love emails with attachments. They are able to break into secure hubs and snatch your files.
