Form Best Practice for multiple options to upload text

Hi there.

I've been looking for some examples of forms which provide multiple options for the user to input an amount of text.

In my case it would be upload a document, link to the document online or copy and paste the text into a text area.

I'm looking to find out the best way of showing that you can only do one of the three actions.

Any advice much appreciated.

I wish I was Apple

HOLY MOTHER OF CRAP!

Apple changes the rules again - they've literally reversed the scroll!!!

My internal jury is still out... 

While it's feeling so deeply wrong to change such rules, it actually feels somewhat right (if you forget the paradigm)

Time (In Seconds) of page load, pdf load, etc.?

Hi Everyone,

Is there a tried and true time (in seconds) of proper page load, link opening (say, opening and loading a pdf.) etc. that is the industry average? I realize that theres instances that are the exception. I'm trying to find a specific example that i can use as a UX benchmark to give to testers as a best practice.

Thank you all!
~Josh

P.S. If you could cite references that would be awesome. Cool

Re: Color and Usability / User Experience

While I'm sure someone has researched how a particular shade of red improves conversions I believe that contrast and understanding how certain hues recede vs 'pop ', emotions of color etc. Smashing Magazine has a good color theory article that I will link to later.

Color and Usability / User Experience

Hi,

I'm looking for a study or guidelines about how to use color to enhance the usability of a website or an application. For example: Is there a color for the call to action button which is the most recommendable? Is there anything regarding colors would should to avoid? What would you tell somebody who wants to know which influence has color for the usability of a website?

I would very much appreciate your input to these questions.

Thanks and best greetings, Karen

Breadcrumb Trail Separator Terminolgoy

In the interest of a controlled vocabulary, what terms have you used, or do you prefer to use for the > that is placed between breadcrumb trail elements?

^ is a caret, but that isn't quite accurate.  "Greater-than sign" just sounds out of place.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Adam
