Corkdump.com – Customizable Corkboard

Corkdump.com is a customizable resource for designers and developers that I think is really cool! In an effort to be completely upfront, I will tell you that I recently purchased the site…but it is still cool! And since there is no revenue model, I think I am at liberty to share.

Maybe it is me, but there were so many things I like about the site. First off, I thought the design was interesting and functional. It’s run with MySQL, PHP, and a bunch of AJAX. Here’s how it works:

Basically, visitors come to the site, check out the resources, then favorite them (by clicking the heart) if they like a particular resource. They can then come back to the site to find all of there favorite resources all on one page.

The resources are then sorted by how many people favorited a particular one (highest rated ones first). Users can also customize how the categories appear on the page. You just click, drag and drop and then hit the “Save Category Order” button to save your settings instantly.

Users can also submit (for review) websites that they like, or sites that they think others would like. It is nice that users do not have to register to get the full functionality out of the site as it is cookie based. The potential downside to that is if you loose your cookies. Ah…but technology to the rescue! After the first time you use the site, a new graphic will appear that says “Like using CorkDump?”. Just click on that link, and the system will email you a link that will fully restore your CorkDump cookies should you need it.

So, check it out and leave me comments about what you think. Is it cool, or is it lame?

    It seems to be a handy utility, has everything at click reach. The photo section caught my eye, i’d probably take a squint through and see how I could benefit from it. I will say one thing though, it looks a wee bit plain! But that’s a cork-dump I guess 😉

    Hey, Eddie, I like it! But for someone like me who uses multiple computers – office, bedroom, bathroom, etc – like I do, the cookie vs registration can be frustrating.
