Good proofreaders catch errors that would embarrass, torment, and diminish us if those errors appeared in print or online.
If you have made certain style decisions on your own—for instance, you use Canadian spelling because you have Canadian clients—let your proofreaders know that. Have you ever been on the receiving end of an “urgent” marketing request to change a Google Analytics or other script on your company’s website?
We’ve got this marketing campaign coming up, and we really need to get this new, different Google Analytics script on our website. We’ve just developed a new set of landing pages, which need a custom script, together with a KissMetrics script, and on certain pages we also want to add CrazyEgg. I know we’ve asked you to add this script, but we’re mid-campaign and we URGENTLY need to optimize this script, before we run out of marketing budget. If you’re like most web developers working with a digital marketing team, the above or similar situations probably sound familiar.
Well show how Google Tag Manager can improve the efficiency of both website developers and online marketing teams.
Any company which has an independent marketing team knows how critical digital marketing is to their success. Google Tag Manager allows users to define and decide what scripts (“tags”) are shown, and under what circumstances, through a UI. Allowing the marketing team to tinker with your beautifully coded website may sound like a horribly bad idea.
What you’ll need to do as a minimum, is sign up for Google Tag Manager and add the GTM script to the website pages where you want to allow the adding of scripts. Built-in tags for different services allow for customizations as necessary for that specific service.
Even if you, as a developer, are handling the adding of the scripts, you can appreciate that you don’t have to perform the server-side coding required to fire the tag under different scenarios. The amount of conditions available under which the tag can fire is enough to handle all kinds of complex scenarios your teams may demand.
Here we’ve used a broken tag to show you how GTM stops you when it detects an error in the script. There is also a preview feature that allows you to preview what the current set of tags will look like on your current site.
Share Preview also allows you to send a URL which will actually contain the same preview, so that you can share with your peers for approval. The benefits of using this approach rather than messing directly with the code every time should be evident from the example above. Whilst creating the example above, we showed for a moment that you can use triggers to decide when the script should fire or not. Quick Aside: We’ve seen examples of scripts which are up to 500KB in size, which is overwhelming. Let’s say you want to trigger a specific event, include a tracking pixel, or show a customer survey to visitors who have converted. Let’s create a Google Customer Survey, enter our site ID, and then choose “Some Pages” instead of the “All pages” trigger.
We’re going to use a Regex to match the URL of our Thank You page, but there are plenty of other conditions you can use. As you can see, our tag will now only get populated when a Thank You page is being displayed. As with any service which touts itself on being flexible and customizable, GTM supports the use of variables. Variables can also be used in triggers, say to define the page URL under which to fire a page view trigger event.
Our plan is to trigger an Adwords Remarketing campaign specifically to the customers who we know have already spent $100. We’ve seen that it is difficult for a user to “break” the functionality of the site when introducing new tags.
Although performance might be a potential concern, we do believe that if the digital team is assisted by a developer, triggers can be used to ensure the performance hit is only taken where necessary. Animated GIF showing the non-wrapping text preventing the flex parent from getting narrower.
Not only might this prevent the narrowing of a container, it might blow a container out super wide. According to a draft spec, the above text should not fully collapse when the flex container is resized down. When Im the CSS lead on a project (kinda my thing), I feel most comfortable when Im intimately familiar with everything happening in the stylesheets. For the teams out there that dont really have a CSS lead, or dont have one that is excited about that being their job, you can likely get a lot of productivity out of a framework. There are also about 20 billion of them because of this weird thing that happens where people that have some success writing CSS from scratch want to turn their thinking into a framework for the rest of the world.
Also, if its not clear, Im a founder at both CSS-Tricks and CodePen, but many people work on both projects. FRED COPELAND: WHAT MADE CODEPEN A HUGE SUCCESS, GIVEN THAT THE FRONT-END WORLD ALREADY HAD JSFIDDLE, PLUNKER ETC? Based on that, we decided to make the homepage of CodePen a showcase rather than the editor itself.
So whenever you remove a component from inside a button then the button itself should still work. With the rise of ultra high-definition displays and devices that enable browsing the web via smart TVs, the internet is increasingly being accessed and viewed on screens that dwarf traditional desktop displays.
Take for example the image above, which depicts a small sampling of popular websites that were each captured at a screen size of 2560x1600 pixels. The challenges of optimizing for large-scale displays center around how to scale and manage content. Content choreography refers to how content is adapted proportional to screen size, serving the best possible experience at any width.


Generally speaking, the way content adapts on small screens is pretty straight-forward: we stack content within a single column and adjust the visual order if necessary. Now that we’ve identified the various challenges that come with large-scale displays, let’s take a look at some approaches to optimizing our content for this scale. Ive created a site to demonstrate each technique we’ll be looking at for optimizing for large-scale displays. The method you use to optimize your content for large-scale displays will vary, depending on your content. For our demo, I chose to start with sketching out the general idea for the layout and content. Relative units such as percentages, EMs, and REMs are essential to responsive web site because they provide us a way to build on a flexible foundation. Next, we apply these variables to our element and increase both font-size and line-height gradually as the screen gets larger.
Screenshots at 2560px wide illustrating the difference between not scaling text up globally (left) versus scaling text up (right). When it comes to controlling content, there are few tools in the responsive web design toolbox as useful as the ubiquitous ‘container’.
This approach works but, but it doesnt scale to large screens because the maximum width is too dependent on a specific width. How you manage images on extra large screens is entirely dependent dependent on your project needs, but you will most likely need to serve up higher resolution variations of each image to ensure images aren’t too small.
For background images, this is quite simple: define the background image on the appropriate element, give the element dimensions, and define higher resolution sources of the image within media queries. For inline images, we now have an HTML specification that allows us to extend the img and source elements to provide a list of available image sources and their sizes.
I caught wind of a friend making the transition from in-house designer to freelancer or proprietor of a small design studio and looking for advice. Using a web font service doesn’t necessarily mean that your web site will use best practices. Kate worked with me from January, 2014 through August, 2015 as a teaching assistant in our marketing program, I was her direct supervisor. She used creative approaches to help students' understand complex concepts in marketing statistics. Perhaps my carelessly following rather than interpreting the instructions wrecked the meal?

Make proofreading a priority.Proofreading is as essential as planning, writing, formatting, editing, and printing. I only recently became aware that Google Tag Manager was a thing_, but didnt know exactly what it was, what it did, or why I might care to use it. And how many of those times have you had to change, and redo the scripts, time and time again during the campaign. It is different from the one used by corporate, so that we can track specific parts of the websites ourselves. Google Tag Manager is the solution to create a system which works for both web developers and marketing teams.
There are no shortage of tools for adjusting, monitoring, improving, analysing marketing campaigns.
You might have various approvals to move from development, to staging, to pre-production testing.
I wouldn’t want to let anybody who is not a member of our development team anywhere near our code. Adding too many tags will slow down the site’s performance and it will all come back to development team to fix. Anything which can be customized in the native script can be done via the Google Tag Manager. You can have different tags fire based on different conditions or different sections of your website. By visiting the site where the tag will be deployed from the same browser where you are performing the Google Tag Manager changes, you’ll see a preview of what the deployed script will look like. Let’s assume that at the end of your sales process, you send your customers to a Thank You page. Once we do this, we are presented with a “Choose Pages” UI, which allows us to define the trigger conditions. As per normal code variables, this is simply a value which is populated or defined at runtime. Anything from the ID of the product being bought, to the username, email or other user data. Say, were trying to grow sales by having a promotional offer for those who spend more than $100.
Well trigger the remarketing code only if the transactional value of the shopping cart is more than $100. It will match the trigger only if the transaction amount is greater than $100, and at that point inject your Remarketing tag.

You dont want that text to wrap, you want it truncated with ellipsis (or fall back to just hiding the overflow). Without this, the flex child containing the other text elements wont narrow past the "implied width" of those text elements.
We had this consideration: "What are the coolest demos people have made on jsFiddle, TODAY?" How do you find them? We decided to have user accounts and make CodePen a social network in addition to a code editor.
Even if we dont call it OOCSS much anymore, Nicole was way ahead of the curve on this stuff and influenced how the community thinks about CSS immensely. Coping with less predictable elements reveals pesky issues of spacing and alignment inside. But this isn’t just important for buttons really, it’s important for any component that we’re building.
According to W3Counter, screens with a device width of 1366x768 pixels are the most common large device resolution.
This width is what you will find with most high-definition desktop displays that start with 27” monitors. As you can see, none of these sites are optimized for this scale: text is too small, the volume of content packed into a relatively small space makes it difficult for the eye to know where to focus, and everything seems to be dwarfed by the whitespace that surrounds it.
The answer is sure to vary by team, but there are definitely a few technical challenges at this scale. On the other hand, the way we approach this on large devices can vary greatly, depending on the content and the space available. Since most large screens are also higher resolution, we must manage additional variations of each image to ensure the appropriate image is served. Given the topic, I chose a theme that seems appropriate in the context of scalability, the Death Star II. One option is to simply adjust the layout in order to present your content in a way that takes advantage of the additional screen space. By planning ahead, you are minimizing surprises and ensuring that everything works together before diving in, at which point its harder to make changes. By doing this first, I got a sense for how I should break the site down into sections, and how the page as a whole could be structured to accommodate these sections. By using relative units everywhere, we can ensure that measurements will remain proportional, regardless of the font size set by the user.
By defining our media queries in EMs, we are ensuring the design scales proportionately without enabling awkward scrolls bars in the browser if the user was to adjust the zoom level. Font-sizing can be controlled globally by adjusting the font-size property on the element, as long all text on the site is defined in relative values like EMs. As you can see below, the first step is to define what the base value of your font sizing will be.
As mentioned before, this will scale up the text size everywhere if you have set font sizes in your content as a relative unit like EMs. This element has one purpose, and that is to control the maximum-width in which our content can extend to. Even if the max-width value was increased to something much larger, it isnt relative to the viewport width. This is because we must leverage a polyfill to enable support for srcset and sizes in browsers that do not yet support them.
When it comes to optimizing our content for large-scale displays, we shouldnt stop short of common desktop resolutions.


It looks like a Sass mixin, but its really more like extending a placeholder selector, but because its native, without the selector insanity that extend can cause.
Meaning the new features will be available, unprefixed, in development versions of the browser (i.e.

The course, Business Writing That Builds Relationships, developed out of my long-standing interest in diplomatic, relationship-building messages at work. Proofreading is finding and correcting errors and inconsistencies in documents that are virtual final drafts. Know that occasionally something will slip by even after several editors and proofreaders have reviewed a document. In developer speak, Google Tag Manager is a script which handles the injecting of _other_ scripts into your website, through a friendly interface.
As the marketing teams react to the new tools which come along in their industry to stay ahead of the curve, you’ll get more and more changes in the website. For example, you can have a specific tag for your websites corporate page, different tags for sales landing pages, and yet again different tags for documentation and support pages.
This can prevent lots of headaches, broken sites, panicked administrators, and many frustrated people.
If you are in the industry of creating scripts, you’ll be doing everybody a favour if you keep them lean and mean. While setting the trigger, we can choose what fires the trigger (and hence the loading of the script). We’ll give a quick example of how to use transactional data as a variable in a real-world scenario. We can define a GTM variable which reads off the transaction amount from a JavaScript variable containing the value which exists on the page. Our graduates pursue roles with some of the most exciting and innovative tech companies as full-stack software developers, quality assurance engineers, front-end developers, and product managers. Bootstrap is kind of amazing and I feel like the "ugh, bootstrap is everywhere blah blah" sentiment is overblown and unnecessary.
As such, buttons are where you apply a design language’s base attributes in ways that’ll ripple throughout more complex component later.
In short: asking questions about how a certain element might break visually, or in terms of interaction, is vital to the process of building an effective design system.
But if youre building responsive websites, it’s likely that the tools you need to scale your content are already in place.
It is also the range at which most websites begin to struggle because of excess screen real-estate.
Each of these factors contribute to a decrease in legibility and less than optimal user experience.
This is a problem for a few reasons: 1) the awkward space that results is distracting, 2) the excessive space can dwarf the content, which makes the content seem smaller than it is, and 3) legibility will most likely suffer as a result of being too small. If you avoid adapting your content to the excess space made available on large-scale displays, your content will most likely seem dwarfed in comparison to the negative space that surrounds it. I will be referring to bits of code from this demo, but you can see it in it’s entirely here on CodePen.
Another method is to responsively upscale your content so that it fits the space proportionately. If your design process involves working in a design application in order to visualize how you want content to behave, then do so by creating a canvas size that represents a extra large screen alongside your other comps that represent more traditional screen sizes.
Next, I explored design aesthetic a bit by creating a high-fidelity composite in Sketch, which allowed me to identify design elements such as fonts, colors and proportion.
This is in direct contrast to explicit pixel values, which will not scale relative to a users settings, and therefore measurements will not be proportional if the user scales up or down the default font size.
This is especially useful when it comes to large screens because it allows you to proportionately scale type up globally as screen size increases, thus avoiding the text in your design from seeming too small in relation to the screen. In our case it is set to 1em, which means we are defaulting to whatever default font-size is set by the browser. Take a look at the image below, which illustrates the difference between our demo when font-size isn’t scaled up on the body (on the left), and when font-size is globally scaled up (on the right) at 2560 pixels wide.
A better way to approach this is to define the left and right margins as relative units and gradually increase these values as the screen size gets larger. Notice that we are setting the height property to 0, providing bottom padding, and setting the background-size property to cover.
The image below details how this is implemented on our demo, in which we are defining additional image sources and their sizes with srcset and sizes attributes. Browsers without support will prefetch the imgs src if specified, often causing wasteful overhead. With the proper planning, we can leverage the tools already available to us when building responsive websites to scale up and adapt our content for large-scale displays. They often used every prefixed variant of a feature, which makes CSS less maintainable and JavaScript programs trickier to write.
At the end of the day if you don’t want to put any effort into it, it’s safer to use TypeKit. She took initiative to enhance online outreach to students, showed evidence of a keen understanding of both short term results and long term benefits of various marketing strategies, and consistently delivered professional, high-quality work. My friend Sarah began a job search on September 1, 2007 and ended it three months later, nevertheless, she still networks. As the size of a company grows, all these moving parts tend to become heavier and take longer to complete. Hint: Don’t include all of your functionality in the script whether I’ve enabled it or not.
We decided well use algorithms to determine popular work, so you have a voice in what is popular as well. In this article, we’ll take a look at the challenges and techniques for optimizing your site on large-scale displays. These values come primarily from desktop monitors, and most websites will adapt to these screens without much problem. But, if you attempt to fill the space with content by introducing more columns, you risk visually overwhelming the user by presenting too much content in a relative area of the screen. Images that don’t scale with the screen can leave awkward gaps of space between them and other elements. If you prefer to design in the browser, then plan how you want your content to behave on large screens by first sketching out your ideas.
The key here is to stay loose and don’t worry about pixel perfection — the important things like interaction, scaling and even font-size should be decided in the browser. Not only is the scaled-up version more legible, but all elements on the page have been proportionately scaled up to activate the space.
As a result, content will be contained in relation to the screen width and feel more at home if the screen is extra large. This is a technique known as “Uncle Dave’s Ol Padded Box”, and allows us to maintain an aspect ratio by percentage padding based on the width of the parent element. This enables the browser to switch image resolution based on screen size and pixel density, thus providing the most appropriate image. Sites frequently used just the prefixed version of a feature, which made it hard for browsers to drop support for the prefixed variant when adding support for the unprefixed, standard version.
Avoid calling, pinging, emailing, or standing over your proofreaders while they work—and dissuade others from interrupting them.
Because I cringe when I see the phrase “thanks-you notes” in my book Business Writing With Heart, knowing that two proofreaders (including me) carefully reviewed it. I think its approach is probably my favorite (I get good results applying it to raw semantic markup.) Its starting to get a little weird though recently with all the different varieties native apps and stuff. In contrast, images that scale too large can take away from other elements and become overwhelming.
In our demo, we will responsively upscaling our content in order to provide a superior experience for users on larges-scale displays.
These features have long existed in Sass, Less, and Stylus, but theres no way to do it in regular CSS. Ultimately, browsers felt pressured by compatibility concerns to implement each other’s prefixes. Before you give a piece to a proofreader for a final review, make sure it has already gone through its rounds of revisions, if necessary. Since there is no one-size-fits-all solution to the challenges that images pose, you must carefully consider how you want to manage them based on the unique needs of your content. You’ll notice we are leaving off the unit at the end of these line-height values, also known as ‘unit-less’ values. By setting line-height this way, we ensure that child elements can compute their line heights based on their computed font size, instead of inheriting this value from its parent. After all, if you aren’t going to defer to their knowledge of grammar, punctuation, and usage, why use them at all?
