This week it’s another RAPID-FIRE!!! Nothing but Thanksgiving turkey hangover and hot question and answer madness!
Q & A:
- 3:12 I have had to do a bunch of horizontal scrolling sliders for work lately. These “sliders” always through me for a loop because I am working off comps I had no part in designing. How do I keep these sliders from freaking out when the browser is resized while they are partially scrolled, and what is the definitive best way to make these from a performance and UX stand point so that I can help our designers make better choices?
- 10:10 When it comes to responsive web design in WordPress, I find myself using a lot of modules in the WordPress page editor to organize the sites content. Is there an easier way of doing this?
- 16:30 Have you ever used any prototyping tool like Fireworks or Sketch? If so, what is the best tool you’ve came across?
- 22:10 Where should I include the media queries for my responsive design in my CSS files?
- 35:07 What other podcasts do you listen to?
- 45:30 Why are some sites targeted by hackers more than others, especially automated attacks? Do web sites end up on target lists, or are the attacks just random?
