  1. "Drop Up" option for Anylink and Anylink CSS Menu

    Quite a few members have asked for the ability to have a menu drop upwards (instead of the default downwards) for either Anylink Menu and Anylink CSS Menu. With that said, use the below attached modified versions of the respective .js files for the two scripts to achieve this. Then, inside the HTML markup for the anchor link of a menu, to get the menu to drop up for it, make use of the data-dir attribute:

    Code:

  2. Styling Descriptions for Ultimate Fade-in slideshow (v2.1)

    There are actually 4 css selectors that can figure in this. Only three of them really matter. If you only have one show on your page, you only need to think about the last two. The selectors are:

    2. .fadeslidedescdiv - the class for all description containers.

    Over the years, as an intermittent Dynamic Drive Flash Guru, I have noticed a trend in utilizing Flash. This trend is one where Flash is being used in ways it probably shouldn't.

    I am here to correct a few things. First of all, let's note that Flash is a tool. Flash, by its nature was developed to be a tool marketed for designers NOT developers. Flash is not an answer, it is not a web site building machine, it is not the be-all end-all of web design. It is a tool. Macromedia created ...
  5. CSS selector wish list

    With CSS3, we have gotten many new pseudo selectors that give us a great deal of options. However, the short list of combinator selectors has only been increased from 3 to 4:
    Code:
    foo bar
    foo>bar
    foo+bar
    foo~bar
    The first combinator is the most used selector and selects any element bar that is a descendant of foo. The second combinator selects any element bar that is a child (direct descendant) of foo. The third combinator selects any element bar that is an adjacent ...
