The Best of Vertical Sliding Website Design

The Best of Vertical Sliding Website Design

Before, we showed you some of the best horizontal scrolling and sliding website designs and how this approach made it through the line in terms of usability and navigation when implemented effectively. Today we are going to show you some of the best vertical sliding website designs.

Unlike horizontal sliding websites, this navigation approach is more acceptable in terms of usability and navigation standards and practices. Some of these websites completely removed sidebar scrolling – instead, they implemented buttons and/or links within the website to control the scrolling or sliding of the website pages. Normally, all the contents are coded in one page and the “scroll to” or “slide to” buttons or links allows the user to navigate to the “other pages” – which is somewhere above or below the current page content. This unique feature can be implemented with the use of jquery, javascript. or flash.

This kind of technique is effective to different kind of web designs – it could be implemented on different kinds of websites whether it is a business, personal, or portfolio kind of website. Unlike the normal vertical scrolling websites, this technique allows users to be more involved in the website contents.

The Birth of a Genius – Digital and Traditional Art Depicting the Prodigy Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

The Birth of a Genius - Digital and Traditional Art Depicting the Prodigy Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born on January 27th, 1756, in Salzburg, Austria to the name Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart. But later, his father shortened ‘Wolfgangus’ to ‘Wolfgang’; translated ‘Theophilus’ to ‘Amadeus'(love of God); and dropped off ‘Johannes’ and ‘Chrystomus.’ He was born to Leopold Mozart and Anna Maria Pertl.

He began touring Europe as a violin and piano virtuoso at the age of six, and producing symphonies at the age of nine. His musical talent was unparalleled not only at his time but through all ages until today. As we celebrate the birth of one of the greatest musical genius that ever lived, his name deserves a post here in our blog – because here in Ninja Crunch, we love music, and we love Mozart 😀
