CSS-Techniques, (X)HTML, PHP Link

  • Creative Use of PNG Transparency in Web Design21
    The PNG image has been widely overlooked by the web design community—and mostly for good reason. Until recently, it hasn’t been possible to take full advantage of the format and have it work reliably in all browsers. But, with proper PNG support in Internet Explorer 7, and some handy JavaScript and CSS tricks to account for older browsers, we can use PNG images to greatly enhance our design vocabulary.

    PNG Transparency Effect22

  • Focus Clouds33
    “It’s my believe that Tag Clouds suffer a fundamental flaw. By blowing up the most common tags, they provide a great way to represent a sites content that’s already in favour, but in effect demote the less popular content. Simply because a category is not very commonly written about doesn’t mean it should be less desirable than bloated categories. This is where the concept of a focus cloud comes in.”
  • Creating bulletproof graphic link buttons with CSS34
    Roger Johansson describes a technique for creating an image-based button that will expand and contract to fit the amount of text it contains. Another solution35 by David Hellsing, based upon PNG-images and background colors.
  • Rediscovering the Button Element 36
    “As is, the input with the type=”submit” is either too ugly (Firefox), a little buggy (Internet Explorer) or completely inflexible (Safari). The solution for most is to use image inputs and create the damn things ourselves. My friends, let me introduce you to my little friend : the <button> element.” Simple and user-friendly.
  • CSS hover effect37
    Veerle Pieters describes the design of the block-hover effect on the 4 tabbed boxes.

  • Fancy Form Design Using CSS39
    This article explains the development of a user-friendly, accessible and functional web form.

  • Validation Hints for your form42
    As someone is typing an in an input field, it would be nice give feedback to the user as they are typing if they have satisfied that field’s validation criteria. This article will explain one way of achieving this effect using JavaScript and CSS.

    Hints with CSS43
  • Styling disabled text inputs44
    Apparently, you can also style disabled input fields.
  • Create Resizable Images With CSS45
    Christian Watson presents a technique you can use to scale the whole page, including images.
  • Scripts- Drop Down Tabs (5 styles)46
    Drop Down Tabs is a horizontal CSS tabs menu that supports a second level drop down menu for each of its tabs.
    You can set which tab should be selected by default when the page loads (ie: 1st tab, 2nd tab etc), or have the script automatically select a tab when the page loads based on a match between the current page’s URL and one of the menu tabs’.
  • CSS The Star Matrix Pre-loaded47
    This tutorial describes the design and programming of a star rating system, a method of voting using (usually) 5 stars in a row, which will change colour as you hover over them indicating the level at which to rate something.

  • Align List Items Horizontally with CSS50
    If you ever wanted to display a list of items horizontally with a wrap around once the right margin of your page has been reached, you came across a float:left solution. And if you ever tried to line up items with different heights this way, you know how messy things can get. This article delivers an easy solution of this problem.
  • CSS Sticky Footer51
    A CSS Sticky Footer that simply works. It’s been tested in IE 5 and up, Firefox, Safari and Opera.
  • Styling the Button Element with Sliding Doors52
    “We needed a button that used Sliding Doors, actual html text, and did not require javascript for rollovers or form submission. Meeting these conditions meant that the input and anchor elements were ruled out, and it was clear that the button element was our only chance. The following technique demonstrates a cross-browser technique for button elements with sliding doors.”
  • How-to create a “Table of Contents” Navigation53
    In as little as 8 lines of HTML, and 5 lines of CSS, the Table Of Contents Navigation block can be integrated in your site ready for even more styling.

    Table of Contents54
  • Unobtrusive connected select boxes – yet another solution approach – Wait till I come! 55
    A DOM-Script-based solution of presenting select-menus semantically and logically correct. [via Praegnanz.de56]
  • PHP Masthead Rotator57
    It doesn’t really rotate the mastheads but rather randomizes them. And, in fact, it doesn’t randomize the mastheads, but rather just a numeric value. If used cleverly, though, it’s a great way to offer your site’s visitors masthead images that belong to a specific collection.

Ajax, Javascript Link

  • Glossy JavaScript Library58
    Glossy.js allows you to add corners and shading and shadow to images on your webpages. It uses unobtrusive javascript to keep your code clean.

    This technique presents tooltips with Flash and JavaScript.
  • SlickSpeed Selectors Test60
    Speed/validity selectors test for frameworks Prototype, jQuery, MooTools, ext, cssQuery and Dojo Query. Every framework runs in his own iFrame, thus no conflicts can happen. Tests are run selector by selector, with an interval to prevent the browser from freeezing. Tests are run in a neutral environment, no library or framework is included in the main javascript test, to avoid favoritism.

  • Animated Collapsible DIV62
    This javascript creates the slide-effect for div-containers.
  • Asynchronous upload – Like AJAX – 1 function63
    Asynchronous upload of files with JavaScript and DOM Scripting using IFrame. Works like Gmail upload and Google pages upload. Tested in Firefox 2.0, Internet Explorer 6.0 e Opera 9.1.
  • lightWindow64
    Another script you can use to integrate lightboxes and online-galleries in your web-pages. This lightweight script supports 5 different types of Media: Pages, Inline Content, Media (movies, SWF, etc), images (galleries, single), External Websites (via IFrame)

Though it’s a natural progression, making the transition from doing creative work on a day-to-day basis to running a department or business can be hard.

  • Pagination 101104
    “One of the most commonly overlooked and under-refined elements of a website is its pagination controls. In many cases, these are treated as an afterthought. I rarely come across a website that has decent pagination, and it always makes me wonder why so few manage to get it right. After all, I’d say that pagination is pretty easy to get right.”

    There are many speculations about CSS 3, its implementation, its release and its use in pracitce. Andy Budd suggests that it’s time to release a preliminary version of CSS. “Maybe we should take all the CSS3 properties, value and selectors currently supported by the likes Safari, Opera and Firefox.

  • Breaking Out of the Box [CSS Tutorials]112
    “I hear from designers who don’t like web standards […] , “CSS designs are so boring. They’re too boxy.” I can’t help but find this statement to be a bit silly.

    Amazing list, with some interesting links. Thx!

    Although the png is able to be rendered in older IE browsers, the color it outputs is still not a perfect rendering. Therefore I don’t believe it is yet a highly accepted thing.

    I’m really surprised and glad to see that Paul O’Brien’s article on Search-This was featured this month. I went ahead and let the blog’s owner know about the honorable mention. I’ll forward it to Paul as well so he knows.

    Don’t forget the follow-up article on how to create the back-end in PHP 5. (I’d link to it but I don’t want anyone to mistakenly think I’m advertising for Search-This.)

    *tips hat*

    (I tried submitting this once before, but my ISP choked on me. At least I can’t blame it on the severe weather crossing over northern Illinois.)

    Veerle Pieters describes the design of the block-hover effect on the 4 tabbed boxes.

    Thanks for the link love for Particls – much appreciated!

    Web developers might also be interested that they can white label the app and offer it as their own alert system for their sites/apps too :)

    We even share revenue with them from the ad impressions we can make all day.

    Thanks SmashingMagazine!

    One that reads the major news sites could also easily get to these links. Anyway, nice collection for monthly readers, but no more. Having trackbacks to this site is annoying.
