The Story of the Fold

by Narek Kirakossian

You have heard about "The fold", but perhaps not about "life below the fold". There is another way to capture and hold the attention of an audience without cramming things above the once-famous-fold.When there was a fold, it had a height and a set of rules that governed its use.

Show only the Most Vital Information – Consumers who view a website on a mobile device are more likely to only be seeking directions, a service, or contact information than someone viewing the website on a desktop. Feature all of this…

Few clients want to call or email their changes in to a developer to get their website updated. Most want to be able to control the content of their site independently without learning arcane markup languages.

Which CMS to choose, however, depends on the purpose of the…
