thumbnails – How can I change the behavior of cropping in medias section of admin?

I have a problem : in my admin section, I changed the size of the thumbnails to 800×600 because I need it.

Now, when I try to crop an image (only the thumbnail) in the media section, it wont crop it if the crop’s size is smaller than 800×600..

A simple solution would be for the user to upload the same image, crop it to his needs and I would display this image in the gallery instead. But it’s definitly not user friendly so I would like to change the behavior of the cropping system in admin ! (By the way I am making my own theme).

I tried using this filter : How to scale up featured post thumbnail? ! But it wont work… Can you help me pls ? (Sorry in advance for my bad english, I’m french 🙂 )

user behavior – Changing cursor for UX project

I would like to learn how to make a simple HTML file where my cursor is changed to a custom image while also being tracked with no latency across the page (same function as on my OS which is mac, but I wish to use a new cursor for my UX project).

I have read all CSS property rules¹. The problem is these work only for when I hover over a div attribute or a button, when I want it to work permanently.

user behavior – Log in before confirming a transaction

My team and I are building a self-service web portal that allows users to make the transaction as they would in person at a bank…first, when the users visit the web portal they process the transaction but before they make a payment they are made to log in before taken to a checkout page. I was wondering if it was a good user experience logging in before confirming the transaction.

user behavior – Best way to categorise info

I have been tasked with displaying/showcasing this companies solutions, but in a sector specific way. My concern is that the user could be overloaded within info quite quickly as they drill down into the sector solutions. How it would work:

1 – Click on sector from main nav/or signposted from elsewhere on the site
2 – Read about sector solutions
3 – Read about job roles within sector, using specific solutions
4 – CTA’s to individual solution/products

My question is, what would be a good way to IA this?, or categorise this info?

Hopefully the diagram may help :]

ThanksCurrent IA

Can we change Windows 10 behavior to be MacOS like?

I’m using Windows 10 but am more comfortable as a Mac User and I really miss some behaviors I’ve come to expect. I own a 32” 4K monitor and now with Windows 10, my windows get maximized at full everytime is not ideal.

Have any other fellow users which alternate between Mac and Windows have found a solutions for this item? My research for tools yields results about changing the looks of windows more like mac and that’s not what I’m interested in. I want the rezise/maximize behavior to make me as efficient as in MacOS.

I hope you can point me into the right place to find a solution for this.

Are windows controls on Windows 10 modifiable?

tables – Best UI behavior for done actions in a list

I agree with @jhurley and @Stefano’s answers, but let me add a different angle:

Going back to first principles–what is the user’s context and what task are they trying to accomplish?

I’ll use my own experience to illustrate, since I don’t know who you’re designing for. Loosely ranked by frequency of use, these are my personal scenarios:

  1. I have discretionary time and am looking for a task to take on.I
    want to quickly review all my options and make a selection.

  2. I have completed a task and want to update my list.

  3. I want to review what I have completed and get a sense of my
    accomplishment, as well as trigger any additional next actions.

  4. I want to revive a task that was marked completed earlier (either
    because it was checked off accidentally, or I want to use it for a
    slightly different task).

For each of the above tasks, I want to separate DONE from not-DONE tasks.
I’ve seen several implementations of this separation:

a) spatially separate them (usually not-DONE on top, DONE tasks below)

b) check mark in front of DONE tasks (and blank checkbox in front of non-DONE tasks)

c) strikethrough the task title for DONE tasks

d) filter / toggle whether

ALMOST EVERY task manager implement (b) and (c). (e.g. Wunderlist, 2Do, Toodledo, Asana). SOME implement (a), and (d). I consider (d) a more advanced feature, and whether you do (a) depends on how important it is to preserve list order.


To answer your specific question, the only advantage I see of a label vs. strikethrough is a slight increase in readability.

The advantages of strikethrough design:

  • mimicks what people do on paper, which makes it much less ambiguous
    and learnable
  • easier to parse (since the user only needs to look at once place to determine status)
  • easier to distinguish DONE and not-DONE tasks – the strikethrough as a visual pattern is easier to pick up
  • you can reserve labels for other features, like “tags” or “categories”
  • this is what most task management apps do.

terminology – Scrolling Behavior – Mobile vs Desktop

We have some internal research that shows our users scroll much further down the page on mobile vs desktop. The page lengths are exactly the same in terms of the amount of products displayed – 3 across and 12 down.

When describing this behavioral difference I call it the ‘Facebook Phenomenon’ as in users just scroll endlessly without fully absorbing the information presented to them.

My question is, is there a UX/analytical term for this behavior? I made up the phrase ‘Facebook Phenomenon’ where I work but wondered if I’d subconsciously copied something I’d read.

interface – Which ergonomic criteria would justify the behavior of redirecting the user to a 404 redirect page?

Without having to reference the criteria (because I think it is not necessary to answer the question), you are probably struggle with the question because of a couple of reasons.

Firstly, it is possible for there to be more than one way of classifying something, and if the criteria doesn’t allow for this (or isn’t flexible enough to adapt) then you should consider customizing it so as to be more fit for your purpose.

Guidance and error management can both fall under the bigger perspective of messaging and notification to the user, which allows the user to feel in control of their actions (in their interaction with the system). So I don’t see this as a problem that you can’t fit it neatly into just one category.

The other thing is that there are ways to implement a 404 page that leads to a more positive user experience, and ways that can make the user more confused and frustrated. So it is not so much redirecting the user to a 404 page that is the problem, because at some point your system will probably generate an error that you can’t necessarily address immediately (e.g. the server is down).

But as with all good error handling and management best practices, if you can:

  • identify the source of the error (i.e. is it caused by the user or
    the system)
  • provide some idea the nature of the error (e.g. is it an expected error caused by things like validation or something unexpected and outside of the system) and then
  • give some ideas of how to resolve the issue or perhaps next steps

Then your users will thank you instead of clogging up your support system/mechanisms.

Minolta Riva Zoom 135EX film winding behavior

I’m testing a Minolta Riva Zoom 135EX. Everything works fine, but if I press the shutter without a film loaded it doesn’t wind on. Is this normal?

9 – Different behavior of URL response and service response

I am trying to pass csrf_token or session token without an additional request.
I am able to get token using /session/token endpoint.

I am observing a different behavior here.
The response of routing service endpoint /session/token and Drupal::service('csrf_token')->get() are different in Drupal 9.

Why the above mentioned methods give different values. The CsrfTokenController::csrfToken class method is hit by /session/token route.

How can I get /session/token in module?

Or

Which other service can give /session/token equal response making CSRF-TOKEN validation successful?
