Brian Christiansen and I recorded a special episode comprised entirely of questions from our customers. On August 14, we held the UIE Virtual Seminar – Galleries: The Hardest Working Pages on Your Site. During the seminar, we received far more questions than time would allow answering. As is tradition, we put together this follow-up podcast to answer even more of your excellent questions.

In this episode, we discussed:

  • A review of Gallery pages and their connection to Scent
  • How Gallery Pages are special, and a comparison to a Department page
  • The role of Galleries in Intranet environments
  • We dive into the use of “learn more” links with a little more depth
  • Our observations about how users really “browse” the web
  • Advice on coping with large numbers of links on Gallery pages, and what links belong there
  • A preview of September’s Virtual Seminar on Critiquing

If you missed our live seminar, a recording of Galleries: The Hardest Working Pages on Your Site is available for viewing.

(Producer’s note: My apologies to the Discount Tire folks for calling you “Direct Tire” once in the episode. I got it right the second time, though!)
