UI/UX Ideas -

I think there should be some sort of display in the track modules view that shows the completion of the project to keep me from expanding to see my completion. Maybe a star or something next to the Hex Icon showing it's complete or a "3 of 4" or 3/4 completed. Something... https://www.diigo.com/item/image/4vgb3/7jsb

Awesome! It's nice to hear that you take your students feedback into consideration. Now how about hiring me. :)

Thanks for pointing this out, Justin. This is definitely a great suggestion. I'll chat with Daniel about this. We've been working on the UI/UX for a lot of these elements lately.

Cheers! Ryan

Ryan Wilke so I found an issue. When watching the videos in my browser and I put it in split screen so I have the workspace on one side and the tuts on the other side. The video playback bar/nav bar Will not auto hide.

Hey Justin Ranton, sorry about the delayed replies here. I just wanted to let you know that we recently released a fix for the UX issue that you pointed out on the Course Page(s).

Thanks also for the other UX suggestion regarding the video player. I'll take a look into that and get back to you with any questions if I have any.

Ryan Wilke I noticed it today! Looks awesome! Thanks for considering my idea.

Hey Justin, I just tried to track down the video player issue you were referring too, but I can't seem to reproduce that. The video player controls show auto-hide after about 3 seconds or so once your mouse is off of the video player.

Can you confirm that this is working for you? The only other thought that comes to mind is that you might be using two monitors for the split screen mode?

I'm using Google Chrome (latest version) on Windows and the control bar won't auto-hide. I have to type: javascript:$(".mejs-controls").hide() into my URL bar on every video which gets tedious.

Also could you provide an option for videos to automatically progress to the next upon completion. 9/10 I'm going to watch the next video immediately after its predecessor so this would be a great addition!

Hi James Stott, after double checking on Chrome in Windows, I wasn't able to reproduce the issue. Maybe a few more details will help me track this one down:

  • Are you using two monitors?
  • Does this issue only happen on fullscreen?
  • Can you verify that there aren't any javascript errors on the page (being printed out in the console)?

Thanks again in advance.

Best, Ryan

Ryan, Yes it is in split screen mode. However, if you're working with workspaces you have to have a split screen view to follow along. :/

Also, it tickles me to death to know that I helped add to the design of the Treehouse Site HAHA And I got my treehouse shirt today!

Sorry, Justin. Just to be clear. Did you say that you are using two monitors?

I hope you wear your new shirt with pride ;)

sometimes I use 3 monitors. But I only notice the issue when working on a laptop while in split-screen mode.

Thanks Justin. I'll try to keep my eye out for that in the future. I'm not able to track it down at the moment.
