  1. 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 ...

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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 ...

  5. A slideshow for a unique image

    Sometimes the image that is supposed to be a main attraction of a page of your site may seem a bit dull, or it does not come out right because it is too large for its 'frame' and background-size: cover doesn't give the results you want. In that case, you may consider to resort to a slideshow for that single image using different background positions. Each slide of the show, then, is one and the same image having a specific background position for it.

    I tried to implement this idea ...
