Hello friends....!!!!

Here i am here with a post for web designers....

The mistakes in web designing.... by designers.

They are as follows...

1. Misuse of flash : 

people have to watch a boring, soundless, twenty second flash introduction with no option to skip it. If you're still around when the content loads, the pain doesn't stop. There is a lovely eight or ten second delay between when you click one of the navigation options and when the content actually arrives.

2. Fixed heights and widths

Fixed sizes restrain adaptation for all users. While there are workarounds, these principles should be avoided to allow for a truly responsive web design pattern. Setting a fixed height in your CSS for example limits what is viewable to the user unless that height is later adjusted with a media query. Having this extra code leads to  performance issues and bloat that is otherwise not needed. There are exceptions to this rule but as a basis setting fixed sizes should always be avoided if possible.

3. Non-user friendly navigation

Navigation is a key component to the functionality of a website. Designers must find a way to make the experience almost natural for the user to navigate across a website by providing a common user experience.
                                                       If  the user experience is poor, the user will become frustrated and likely not visit the site again looking elsewhere for a better solution. Always keep usability in mind. Your design could look amazing but if it’s not functional and easy to use or learn then the design is rendered useless.

4. Inconsistent Interface Design

Excessive creativity can be just that. Excessive! Some designers take it to another level when creating websites by creating different designs for every web page within a website. This is by no means confusing to the user. And utterly annoying. No matter how outstanding and attractive a website is, if the overall look and feel is not consistent, users cannot relate to it and feel less in control. Thus, leaving as soon as they arrived. 

5. Too many meaningless graphics

The graphics on your site should enhance the user experience. This needs to be kept in balance – enough to ensure that the site is attractive and functional, but not enough to create clutter and slow down the user experience. Site graphics need to be optimized to ensure that the site is displayed at a respectable speed.

6. Complicated Registration Forms.

Registration forms are tricky. How much information do you require from the user? Gone are the days where a user had to enter a zillion details to register to your website. Some websites make most registration fields mandatory and validate the fields to the extent where the user is frustrated after a few tries. Remember, users visit a website to acquire information. Not the other way round. 

7.  Pop-up Windows

Unless you have a very good reason, avoid pop-up windows. They are irritating and many browsers block them.

8. Pages that are slow to load

Web surfers are notoriously impatient and will punish slow sites by leaving them. A good site will load in no more than a few seconds. Reasons for slow loading pages often include such factors as overloading a site with pointless graphics, sub-optimal graphic formats and hosting factors such as using an overseas hosting company or a “backyard” hosting company. If there is a legitimate, unavoidable reason for having a slow site, then provide visual feedback for the visitor while it loads.
