10 Things To Do When Launching A Site - Webvamp Please note that this guide only lists things that you should do when launching a site and not during the build process. I expect you to have already executed a good build process with testing of code, following standards, observing accessibility guidelines, checking in different browsers and correct navigation heirachy. 1. Check HTML/CSS Validity Check your site one last time to make sure it is valid to the WC3 guidelines. Check both your HTML markup and CSS. 2. Ensure that all pages on your site have unique page titles that accurately describe the page content. Google will only show a maximum of 66 characters and many browsers wll cut you off after about 75, so ensure you put the most important information at the start and have it make sense to the user. 3. Go through your site and ensure that any forms you have fully work and submit the data to the correct location/person. 4. A favicon is the little graphic shown in the address bar and on bookmarks. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

A dream treehouse I've always wanted a treehouse when I was a child but living in a city made it a little difficult. Instead, we would built forts, tents or just crawl under the bed to play. It's weird right now but back then we really loved having those hideouts where nobody could find us. We could stay there for as long as we wanted. Telling horror stories and feeling like these were the safest places to be. But what happens if you're an adult and still dream of a treehouse? I did a little web research for treehouses all over the world and oh my what I found. Safe Arbor in Switzerland. Trillium. The enchanted forest. A modern, pitched roof treehouse. A treehouse morning. A dream treehouse. Those are just a few of many treehouses.

Liquid to Light! Designer Ed Chew takes a green step in the right direction with the TetraBox lamp, a light object made from discarded drink packets that would have otherwise ended up in landfills already packed to the brim. The design is achieved by unfolding the packets and refolding them into hexagonal and pentagonal sections that are then pieced together to form a geodesic sphere or any other desired shape. Here, the Epcot-like ball makes an attractive overhead light and casts an impressive web of shadows and shapes on the surrounding space. Designer: Ed Chew
