I recently had the need to check a certain Radio Button in a Radio Button Group. What I found out was pretty cool. With jQuery you can select the Radio Button Group by name an then select a single Button by it’s value.

<input type="radio" name="radioButtons" value="yep" /> <input type="radio" name="radioButtons" value="no" /> <input type="radio" name="radioButtons" value="maybe" />
and you want to
Check a Single Radio Button in the Group
Uncheck all Radio Buttons in the Group
Pretty easy, isn’t it?

I used this theme for a business website. It is a great theme. Although – the responsiveness works good for sizes down to 9″ displays. For smaller displays it needs a little tweaking e.g. the slider doesn’t work out of the box or some images scale much too small. If a little responsive CSS coding doesn’t put you off have a look here.

Up, Down, Left, Right Scrolling Single Page Website
I hope the title transports what I mean. One could also call it a Sliding Page Website. A Website where all Pages are screensize and slide in and out of the viewport.
A customer wanted a page like that and i googled a long time but did not come up with a satisfactory solution. So I settled for the example the customer had provided although it was not the lean solution I had prefered.
So I created a demo webpage which I will use as template for later projects of this kind. maybe you will find it useful too.
If you are Looking for a WordPress Theme with Sliding Pages maybe try the Sliding Pages Theme. I haven’t tried it yet, but looks promising.
