Sometimes I find myself needing to modify the default behavior of Magento’s Add to Cart button. If it’s a Bundled Product, for example, the default Cart button in the Grid and List views will throw an error at the user if the bundle has required options1. It makes more sense for the button to say something like Configure Now, and take the user to the product page.
I was watching the documentary Objectified recently and was struck by Jonathan Ive’s comments about spending a great deal of time designing the processes to make the actual product that they had designed. I realized that I also spend a great deal of time designing processes. Take, for example, designing a website. A website isn’t a static design, such as a poster. It’s an interactive interface to a person or company’s brand (Some have argued that it is the brand). Updating, changing, and adding content to a website can involve multiple processes.
In the nineteenth century, which was a dark and inflationary age in typography and type design, many compositors were encouraged to stuff extra space between sentences. Generations of twentieth-century typists were then taught to do the same, by hitting the spacebar twice after every period. Your typing as well as your typesetting will benefit from unlearning this quaint Victorian habit. As a general rule, no more than a single space is required after a period, a colon, or any other mark of punctuation.Robert Bringhurst, The Elements of Typographic Style
