The pagination script is a freebie that you can plug in to your own projects too! You certainly get lots for your money with this blog!

  2. XML to HTML - Getting XML Data into a Web Page with SimpleXML

    XML stands for EXtensible Markup Language. It is a language designed to accurately describe and structure data, keeping it separate from any styling or visual formatting. Its aim is to separate presentation, structure, and meaning from the actual content - and it does a pretty good job of it.

    Storing the data in this fuss-free way is great and many tools, software and websites output data/feeds in the XML format because it is reliable, format-free, robust, easily transferred and easily ...

  4. Click-Counter with Flat File Storage (text file) - AJAX & PHP

    I was inspired by a recent forum thread, to write a click counter that can count clicks/hits to any HTML element (links, buttons, images, etc.).

    It's very light-weight because no dependencies or large JavaScript libraries are used - it's all plain JS.

  5. Simple Sweep-in News Scroller (CSS3/JS)

    I've recently been working on digital signage displays for a school (scheduled web pages displayed on 42" TV screens) so I thought I'd write a short blog post to show you the mechanics of how their news and updates are presented on the screens. It uses CSS3 animation for visual effects and a small JavaScript function to time the slides.

    Behind the scenes, the news displayed on the digital signage is managed with my free software, Fast Feed, so if you'd like to explore that option, ...
