I have a system with many users, who can edit data and I distribute those updates on the fly to all logged on users of the system, so they don’t have to explicitly load them. I do this to increase group awareness.
At the moment, the data/views are just simply updated.
What possibilities are there to indicate the changes from other users?
I’m travelling in LA and we went to Knott’s Berry Farm for a day out. We took the metro 460 bus, which goes to DisneyLand. During the drive on the way there and back, I noticed a peculiar habit. The bus driver would come to a complete stop at railway crossings and then after a few seconds continue on. Other cars didn’t seem to do this and the driver did this on crossings with warning lights that would indicate a train was coming, but the lights weren’t on.
Why were the bus drivers doing this? I can understand slowing down, to prevent damage and such, but a complete stop seemed odd.
When I am trying to login into system after suspend sometimes my current layout is not English. After pressing the key combination to change language the language indicating overlay appears on the screen and after releasing of key combination it still stay on the screen. Only one way to make it disappear is to press on any language in overlay using pointer. This happens not every time I am trying to login but when it happens it is really frustrating me.
Is there a solution fix this?
I am working on a web app and have developed both a normal stylesheet and a secondary high contrast stylesheet. I am coming unstuck when it comes to allowing a user to switch between styles.
Is there a standard icon/text that should be used?
So far I have links as follows (high contrast is only visible in normal view, and normal view is only visible in high contrast).

I’ve seen the “$ ” sign used to indicate price range from $ (for low) to $ $ $ (for high) like below at TripAdvisor:
But is this well-understood by customers? What alternatives exist for indicating price visually without cluttering the UI with things like “Low”, “Medium” and “High” which are difficult to discern when scrolling through a long list?
Suppose we perform a search on an object name and get this results list:
From this list exactly one element can be selected in order to perform an action on that element. An element can be either:
- An object itself
- OR an item connected to an object
- OR a part connected to an object
An object can have zero or more items and zero or more parts. Items (of which there may be many) is listed in a separate dialog. Parts (of which, often there is only a few) could be listed on inline expansion. The following image shows this setup:
My question is this:
- How to best indicate a selected element if the list in which it appears is not always visible?
I know a general solution to showing a selection in a list would be a dropdown/combobox. However, I think this kind of control bloats the UI in this case and has an affordance more like “required” than “optional”. Also, it’s not very good in terms of interaction in case of long lists (with a lot of scrolling).
My best bet at the moment would be to use color if one of the items or one of the parts is selected. For parts it would look something like this:
This, however, is an inconcise and not so elegant solution. Do you have any better suggestions?
user are asked to participate in a number of webform surveys
when they login they are shown a list of available webform node surveys
completed surveys are listed but unavailable
non-completed surveys are listed and are available to be completed
we don’t want them to see the results of surveys submitted by other users.
I am using webform 8.x-5.0-rc29, webform node and webform views.
I can show all the available surveys in the view but when I add a relationship to get the submissions details it only shows the webform nodes that the user has already submitted and not those available.
I’m a bit stuck. Help much appreciated.
I would like to ask a question that might be hopefully in the scope and specificity of this site but I need clarification to proceed on investigation.
Please advise if this is appropriate or if I can provide further clarification as I do not have all details but want to investigate further.
There is a contact of mine who recently has been receiving emails on the domain of their site where there is a login place and an option to enter email’s from their default WordPress user stating the following.
Password changed for the user: username.
To date, numerous emails have started being generated to the email of the owner of their site where they conduct their business.
What steps should I take to be able to uncover why the email reset notifications are set? If there is specific details needed I can provide further to the best of my ability.
So far the status of the site has ssl disabled as far as I can observe and that the site is hosted via 1&1 hosting and that it is using cpanel and WordPress as the site builder.
