PigPog: Usability Improvements

Learning from Jakob Nielsen, and improving the usability of the PigPog web site – adding summary sections and clarifying links.


I’ve been reading through the old Alertbox columns from Jakob Nielsen’s excellent UseIt web site recently, and trying to apply some of his ideas to PigPog. Jakob is a usability expert, and through his site, passes on a lot of really good, practical advice on how users interact with web sites.

Writing for the web is quite different for writing for print, and Jakob is one of the few people who has really studied this, and is good at applying his own ideas – making his columns very readable. I wanted to try to apply some of the ideas I’ve learned from him to PigPog, hoping to make it a bit easier to use, as there were a few problems with the site as it stood.
