  • How to Copy Content Into WordPress From Microsoft Word - It isn’t unusual for me to get a request to fix a WordPress site that doesn’t show some posts in Internet Explorer. After bang­ing my head on my desk and curs­ing Microsoft, I get to work clean­ing up these phan­tom blog posts. Upon look­ing at the code via the HTML tab on the WordPress edit­ing screen, I could eas­ily put the blame on the post’s author by copy­ing and past­ing directly from Microsoft Word.

    Microsoft Word, when pasted, adds a lot of junk code, which is intended to keep for­mat­ting, but instead can seri­ously anni­hi­late a web­site lay­out and pre­vent browsers (such as IE) from view­ing sec­tions by using con­di­tional comments.

    So how can you keep the for­mat­ting you have in your Word Document with­out screw­ing up your post?

  • 20 Creative and Inspiring Free Design Magazines | Design Reviver - Over the years, PDF Magazines have become extremely pop­u­lar. Unlike web­sites, these PDF design mag­a­zines aren’t con­strained by browsers, cod­ing, 72DPI, or even being online.

  • 20 Brilliant Kinetic Typography (Motion Typography) Videos  | Dzine Blog - Kinetic typog­ra­phy refers to the art and tech­nique of expres­sion with ani­mated text. Similar to the study of tra­di­tional typog­ra­phy of design­ing sta­tic typo­graphic forms, kinetic typog­ra­phy focuses on under­stand­ing the effect time has on the expres­sion of text. Kinetic typog­ra­phy has demon­strated the abil­ity to add sig­nif­i­cant emo­tive con­tent and appeal to expres­sive text, allow­ing some of the qual­i­ties nor­mally found in film and the spo­ken word to be added to sta­tic text. Kinetic type has been widely and suc­cess­fully used in film as well as in tele­vi­sion and computer-based advertising.

    Here I’ve col­lected 20 bril­liantly ani­mated Typography videos which i enjoyed most ( I kind of addicted to it, now) hope you like it.
