Overusing z-index

Originally posted on Triangle Land:

z-index is a fascinating CSS property with complicated interworkings. For most Web designers, myself included, z-index is the ticket to getting certain page elements to “sit” on top of or float behind other elements. It especially shines when creating navigation bars that stick to the top of the page when scrolling and the “scroll to top” buttons, just to name two common examples.

However, in my travels and quest for Website design tips, tricks, knowledge, and useful libraries, I have found instances where z-index is abused. While the reasoning behind it may have been sound to begin with, Web design trends change, and what made sense then may not anymore, meaning such z-index usage might now be considered overuse or even abuse.

Originally posted on Nashville Social Media Marketing:

But so many people have websites that don’t do what they want, or are currently working with a website design company and don’t feel like the website they are getting is going to give them what they want.

A good website is one that provides its visitors with important company information, while promoting its products or services in a very user-friendly way. If you fail at any of these things, your website can underperform or not perform at all, in a way that helps your business.

Community management is thrilling and challenging in equal measures. Managing a corporate Twitter account requires a clear vision, a thoughtful strategy and dedication in order to keep a brand in front of established customers, while attracting new ones.

Amid millions of social media accounts and billions of conversations taking place every day, getting your corporate Twitter account noticed can be challenging. Grabbing the attention of your target audience starts with establishing your social brand profile, which is achieved by constantly publishing relevant content.

Originally posted on Keeping It Real.... by Christopher Scott Lee:

Before I even get into my story, I want all of you ‘VETERAN’ website developers to look back to when you were all excited to build your own website, and every time you found one and got stuck on something, you would go to the next one that SEEMED better.
