  1. Long right side toggle menus and the ugliness of double scrollbars

    All the right side toggle menus I've seen on the Internet show a vertical scrollbar appearing next to the vertical scrollbar of the window if both the page and the menu on it are long enough to have scrollbars. To take away this ugliness of double scroll bars appearing next to each other, we should make sure that the vertical scrollbar of a long right side toggle menu shows at the left side of the menu when the window has a vertical scrollbar too. When the window has no vertical scrollbar, the menu's ...

  2. Document.write again

    I know, I know... We should not recommend the use of document.write (DW). But not all uses of it are necessarily bad. There are even instances where it is definitely useful, see this. And there's a solution for many problems that people relate to the use of DW. Here's my small contribution to a discussion that is not dead yet:

    DW is bad because it does not work in XHTML.
    Comment:
    XHTML is a dead duck, so consider changing your DOCTYPE.

    DW executed after ...

  3. Spambot observation: Do spambots only hit the first form?

    A few years ago, I set up a web page that contained several different forms. I don't really know much about how spambots work (does anyone?) but, after a few weeks, it started taking hits - the usual junk about mail order brides and marketing advice, etc. The strange thing was that the spam only ever came in on the very first form - that is, via the form that appeared uppermost in the HTML - and it happened with too much predictability and regularity for it to just be coincidence.

  4. Seamless iframes

    There are many scripts on the Internet that aim to set the height of the iframe element to accommodate the contained document's height, so that the window scrollbars can be used instead of iframe scrollbars for a more seamless appearance. Some rather well-known scripts are those created by David Bradshaw (http://davidjbradshaw.com/iframe-resizer/example, jQuery based) and Dynamic Web Coding (http://www.dyn-web.com/tutorials/ifr...eight/demo.php).

  5. Transferring videos from Google Drive to YouTube

    You can transfer videos from Google Drive to YouTube by sending them as email attachments, see, for example: https://www.oxhow.com/upload-youtube...m-google-drive. But when you use this method for transferring videos to YouTube, you cannot upload files larger than 25MB, since the maximum file size of an email attachment is this size. Also, I don't think you can upload videos from someone else's GoogleDrive to Youtube using the email-attachment method, even if you know the GoogleDrive-url ...
