http://www.weebly.com/ http://imcreator.com/ http://www.wix.com/ + Other "real" WYSIWYG editors Wordpress is some sort of "de facto" for people who don't want to learn simple website coding, but it will be very limiting without wanting to understand the Wordpress framework, which is honestly more appealing to "serious" web developers/designers than a person ...

Crediting never gives permission to use anything. If the creator does not say anything in the description, or does not provide a creative commons (CC) or similar license, you need to reach the creator, tell about your usage and obtain a written permission. If you can't get this permission, you cannot use that work. If you use the videos for a portfolio, ...

closest answer is the sound collector's club. Its not free, but its very cheap - and its super high quality, so well worth the price of admission.

http://www.soundjay.com/ Few gigs of high quality sound efffects for free, terms of use as followed: "Sound Effects You are allowed to use the sounds free of charge and royalty free in your projects (such as films, videos, games, presentations, animations, stage plays, radio plays, audio books, apps) be it for commercial or non-commercial purposes." http:...

You need to check the license for the clip. If they are not Creative Commons licensed then it's probably a good idea to get in touch with the creator for permission. If you've not started on anything though it is going to be easier to just pick CC licensed work from the start (of which there is plenty). You can also search by license on Vimeo in the ...

I would also recommend Wordpress but would keep in mind the same considerations that Internet Human pointed out, ie: it will be limiting without learning the wordpress framework unless you stick tightly to the template. But the great thing about wordpress is that it's highly customizable without the need for any fancy html skills. There are a ton of free ...

Flavors.me and utilize your social networks within it. That's what I used to use for my portfolio before I learned how to code.

There is a program called PhonoPaper made by a Russian group. It is essentially a graphical representation of sound that can be read by a camera and specific software. Quite cool, if somewhat novel. http://warmplace.ru/soft/phonopaper/ There is possibly some way of reading a sonograph image back into sound. Perhaps look into SSTV technology too which is ...

I use wordpress for dallasaudiopost.com and echocollectivefx.com - I'm also in the process of putting together a third website that we'll launch sometime in the next few months. I've found it to be a good looking, flexible and powerful framework with tons of support and users. Its generally iphone and ipad compliant, which is important. Also, wordpress ...

I'd vouch for Wordpress to be honest. I've had a very good experience using it. There are plenty of Professional Themes you can get that are perfect for (video) portfolios, and these themes often have built in customisation features. You can get 'plugins' for Soundcloud and the like too. I'd say have a browse online through Professional Wordpress Themes, ...

Don't. At the risk of losing rep, I'm going to go against policy and instead try to dissuade you from embarking on this challenge. All usability experts agree that websites should make no sounds. It makes for poor website UX. Period. Notifications should be handled visually only. Or, send the user a notification email and hope their email makes a noise ...

You can try the chat room here. We can't handle them on the main site if you don't have a specific problem you are trying to fix, but chat is an ideal environment for critiques and general feedback on work.

There was a thread about it on the C74 forums who had the same problem. http://cycling74.com/forums/topic/spam-becoming-a-problem-on-forum/ Some interesting ideas in there. Perhaps it depends on how customisable the forum software is. How about if a post was marked as spam by 3 users with 1000+ reputation it would be immediately trashed. Moderating all ...

Actually, a good picture CAPTCHA is very solid. The only way a robot/program could interpret a good picture CAPTCHA is using character recognition. Now, computer vision simply isn't that advanced and likely never will be (the logic would be extremely complex). The one used here might be too simple (not messed up enough) or it's not requested every single ...

I am, at present, working on my own website and THIS guy helped me a lot. He talks step-by-step about how you can make your website using WordPress. Hope that helps.

Thanks for all the replies. Looks like the majority vote is in favour of Wordpress so i may just have to check it out properly. Thanks for all your replies, SSD is an awesome place.

Hi Alan, Both Guido and Tim are right. The problem is the default settings of your server. These default limits are placed on shared servers on lower hosting plans (i.e., like Hostgator's Hatchling plan). This is done so that the basic hosting plans don't steal performance from other accounts on the same server, etc. These settings are stored in the "...

Your problem is not easy to answer and maybe it belongs to a web-developer forum. I'd recommend you to find out by trial and error what the problems are: Try to make a hard-link to a testfile with the same size. Download it with firefox. If the download works, the problem is not on the hoster and it accutally should work. Try download by ftp, (try filezilla ...

Two quite different examples jump to mind. The first is Devine Sound. Very simple, minimal bleeps on button clicks as well as some other nice interactive sounds throughout. Minimal, sleek and very effective. The second is La Gaité Lyrique - Experience. A very deep, immerse user experience with a whole host of interactive sounds. The first time I visited ...

Another favorite is Box of Toys Audio. http://www.boxoftoysaudio.com I love the flat, boxy visual style that ties back to their name, but I think their text is approaching too small. Great photography and colors. Welcoming landing page with clear selections to bring users further into the site. speed - 4, would be a 5 but the "Archive" section chugs hard ...

Jeez, I'm so late to the party that all the good answers are taken. :-p I'll only expound on what's already been said, or add new perspectives. I think the most important aspects to work backwards from are A) the brand at play, B) the type of website it is (if business, what vertical), and C) its users. Get ready for Supremely Extreme Generalizations™! ...

Apologies if this is digging up an old question, but I wanted to contribute my own thoughts and perhaps just add some contrast for anybody else who reads the Q&A. My first instinct is to ask the question 'why?'. Why do you (or the site owner/ developer/ designer etc) want to use UI SFX? I have a foot in both camps here, so from a web design perspective, ...
