  1. PHP Stylesheet/Content Switcher with Save Cookie

    Here is a simple PHP script to change stylesheets or load in alternative content (conditional loading), with cookies to store user selection.

  5. 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 ...
