Website Design And Internet Activism

  • Broken Links Suck II - Our (hopefully last) rant on the subject of why webmasters who carelessly reorganize their sites by changing document filenames and paths devalue their own work and screw up the world wide web. (Added: 25-Jan-2004 Hits: 141)
  • Cool URIs don't change - an early document from the World Wide Web Consortium, the people who write the internet standards. (Added: 18-Sep-2003 Hits: 133)
  • Deep Linking is Good Linking - Links that go directly to a site's interior pages enhance usability because, unlike generic links, they specifically relate to users' goals. Websites should encourage deep linking and follow three guidelines to support its users. Jakob Nielsen's Alertbox for March 3, 2002 (Added: 13-Mar-2002 Hits: 150)
  • Fighting Linkrot - "Linkrot definitely reduces the usability of the Web...." Linkrot is broken links on your site, or links from other sites to your site that no longer work. Jakob Nielsen's Alertbox for June 14, 1998. (Added: 11-Feb-2002 Hits: 117)
  • Scanner tips - by Wayne Fulton. Explains how to get good scans of text and images. He's not the world's greatest writer, but he does make a very complicated subject very clear. He also sells an even more detailed print version of the website. (Added: 19-Jul-2002 Hits: 121)
  • Using .htaccess to redirect users to moved pages - This tutotorial covers the use of .htaccess files on apache servers. You can control the error page, password protect directories, etc. Most useful: You can automatically redirect users if you moved a file (stupid!!) or if you had to change fileextensions from .html to .shtml or something.

  • Web Pages Must Live Forever - "Once you have put a page on the Web, you need to keep it there indefinitely...." People linked to it or created bookmarks for it. Jakob Nielsen's Alertbox for November 29, 1998. (Added: 11-Feb-2002 Hits: 123)
