  1. 3 Ways to Resize/Scale Web Images in Responsive Design

    Images can be tricky to deal with in a responsive environment; by nature they are a 'static' element with specific dimensions, so how can we manipulate them into working with our lovely fluid/flexible web layouts? Thankfully there are a few techniques, and this post rounds up my top 3.

    Please note, this article mostly covers visual resizing in a web browser, and not any "true" responsive image techniques, i.e. serving different images to different screen sizes. These are ...

  2. Paginated Responsive Modal Gallery (PHP/CSS3/JS)

    My modal gallery has evolved and here come versions 4 and 5. Both now include pagination but version 5 is PHP generated to help with maintainability.

    First, a recap on the gallery development so far;

    Now, so far, this gallery has only ...
  3. Responsive Multi-Level, Fly-Out Menu

    The earlier version of this menu utilises the same checkbox hack and "off-canvass" pattern in desktop view as it does in mobile - apart from being always-visible on a large screen, it looks and works the same, regardless of what device is accessing it (modern browsers and IE9+).

    Code:
    #menu { left:0 }
    .container { padding-left:13.75em }

  5. Responsive Modal Gallery with keyboard nav controls (CSS3/JS)

    In an effort to make my previous (version 1) CSS-only Modal Gallery more user-friendly, I've now created a version that incorporates simple keyboard navigation from inside the modal overlay, using a small amount of JavaScript.

    Please see version 3 - the Responsive CSS3 Modal Gallery (+ additional JavaScript keyboard controls)

    This version of the gallery works a little more like how modern image galleries are expected to work (or rather, how users have learned to expect ...
