Design Dosage – Daily Inspiration

“Inspiration! Get your inspiration here! Step right up! Step right up!”

Designers and developers alike are always searching the web for the latest trends in design and code. There are many websites offering tutorials, tips and commentary on the latest innovations in the web fabric. Design Dosage is a recent addition to that list.

A new-comer on the scene, Design Dosage offers a different category for each day of the week, covering a range of popular design and development search terms. A week at Design Dosage looks like this:

Designers are also able to submit their work to Design Dosage for feature in a particular category. Only the very best work is featured, keeping a high standard of work on the gallery.

This project is, in my opinion, a great display of what South Africans are up to on the web. The base theme used for the gallery is the free ‘Snapshot‘ theme, created by Woothemes, and the project itself was started and is maintained by a South African web designer. Keep up the inspiration guys! 🙂

Blogging…now with threads!

With the release of WordPress version 2.7 came a host of new features and details. A redesigned administration console with a vast array of new features, a range of features to streamline admin-to-user conversation and threaded comments.

As I mentioned in my first post, this theme is still in testing phase. Thus, I have added threaded commenting to the theme, in hopes of streamlining conversations on posts. Also, in keeping with development trends on WordPress and forward progression, I thought it a good idea to look into threaded comments.

At first, when coding for threaded comments, they do seem to be somewhat of a nightmare to get one’s  head around. Once you get it, however, they aren’t as difficult as you innitially thought. 🙂

How have your experiences with threaded comments been? Let me know in the comments.

Not much of a techie? Check out some of my nontechie posts. 😉

The first post

Here it is, at long last. “Lost In Mattyville” is live. 🙂 I have, over the last few months, been experimenting with several ideas for themes, content, an approach, etc…and here it is, version 1.0 of “Lost In Mattyville”.

On this blog, I intend to discuss trends in technology, design, the web, music, WordPress and whatever comes to mind, really. I also would like to share some writing and possibly a few tutorials on things I’ve picked up in either design, code, music or whichever direction this blog takes me in.

Before I move on, some credits and shoutouts I want to put out there.

– Icons used in this theme by Liam McKay of Function Web Design.
– Lifestream widget by Darren Hoyt and Matt Dawson at Category4. Originally created for the Agregado theme.
– Original flickr widget by WooThemes for the Typebased theme.
– Theme inspiration and reference from the BASE theme by FRESH01.

Thanks guys. 🙂

On a last note for this post, this blog is still under development. If you notice anything that could be better or that isn’t working well, please let me know. I hope you enjoy reading my writings. 🙂
