  1. RWD CSS3 Any Content Slider (JS auto-play)

    Today I revisit the Responsive CSS3 Any Content Slider, enhancing it with auto-play and start/stop controls (and later, a large touch-toggle with swish 'zoom' animation), thanks to a sprinkle of JavaScript.

    But first, a recap on the CSS-only version that was covered in an earlier blog post, mainly just as a reminder about usage of the checkbox hack to emulate click events via CSS - that's what gives it functionality without JavaScript, but, I was contacted and asked to make it play ...
  2. Beat the 300ms Delay on Touch, and Close Sub-Menus

    One of the most annoying things on touch devices is the way that CSS hover activated menus stay open until another link is clicked. Well, this example fixes that;

  5. 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+).
