Easy way to create CSS Sprites

Easy way to create CSS Sprites

CSS Sprites are good for your Website. They reduce traffic between your browser and the webserver. Sprite creation is not difficult.

Use ZeroSprites to put all those little icons, logos and images you use on every or most of your webpages in one image.

Then use SpriteBox or SpriteCow to build the CSS.

jQuery – Checking/Unchecking Radio Buttons

jQuery – Checking/Unchecking Radio Buttons

 

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.

Let’s say you have a form containing something like following:

<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

$(“input[name=radioButtons][value='yep']“).prop(“checked”,true);

 

Uncheck all Radio Buttons in the Group

$(“input[name=radioButtons]“).removeAttr(“checked”);

 

Pretty easy, isn’t it?

Salient – Great Multi Purpose Worpress Theme with Parallax Scrolling

Salient – Great Multi Purpose Worpress Theme with Parallax Scrolling

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

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.

Weeks later I was looking for a parallax Javascript Library. Parallax? – you know the Pages where the backgrounds move at different speed to create the illusion of depth. I tried Parallax.js. As far as I know it does not do anything parallax but it is the perfect solution for my sliding webpages problem.

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.

See the Demo page here.

Download the Demo here.

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.
