New site: Product & Experience Design Guide

Launched https://pxd.gd a few months ago.

I chose Txp because of its flexibility and blazing speed. CHECK HOW FAST IT LOADS!!!

It’s pretty swanky.

Swanky indeed! Great job!

Are you planning on moving your main site to Txp as well?

I like the minimalism of the design. And it is indeed very fast. One I few I saw that gets 100% on pagespeed both on desktop and mobile devices.

Not for a while. The maintenance and work on the one is all I can make time for, so I use Squarespace for the other.

I used to use Textpattern for all of my sites, but I code much less, day-to-day, so ramping up and fixing things, maintaining upgrades, and watching for problems is a lot harder for me to switch to from my typical tasks.

:-D

THANK YOU FOR NOTICING. I worked on that. My goal is for it to be quick(er) to download in Nigerian backcountry or rural China.

GTmetrix shows it could be slightly faster. Dareboost too can help you squeeze it to the max :-)

Re: New site: Product & Experience Design Guide

Your book looks good, Austin. Allow me to bring it to everyone’s attention: Collaborative Product Design

Torrey’s Strategic Writing for UX also looks good.

So many resources nowadays to check speed, heck if my sites would pass W3C tests, that was it for me, knowing full well that TXP could deal with the traffic.

Just tried GTmetrix on one my TXP sites running a Bootstrap theme.

GTmetrix Grade
Performance
100%
Structure
92%

Do you think people running other popular blogging platforms have come across GTmetrix, should we send a link to Matt in Sri Lanka?

I see Textpattern as a basis for creating a website where the design can go in many directions. If I make a theme, I imagine anyone finding it useful will also change it quite a bit to achieve their desired design. Maybe some people will just use basic themes as they are, in which case your numbers show that TXP is fast, but anyone with the slightest knowledge of html and css will surely use txp flexibility to present their content in some unique way, not just be the same as many other websites.

GTmetrix and such like then come in very handy for showing where slowdowns occur and what is likely to hinder them in the SERPS. I don’t really care about comparisons with other sites, I just want my sites to be about the best they can be and because I’m not the most technically gifted person, it’s nice to know about sites that can help with those technicalities.
