“But we need it to be above the fold…”
That’s what we heard from the client as we were discussing their new web site. I’d like to just say on the record that I think the argument that people don’t scroll is so yesterday.
People scroll all the time. Everybody I know has a fancy little mouse with this thing called the scroll-wheel. It’s so easy to get to the bottom of the page.
I’ve been hearing this argument ever since I started building sites in the mid ’90s. The idea that people won’t see something if it isn’t “above the fold” really grinds my gears.
