  1. Click-Counter with Flat File Storage (text file) - AJAX & PHP

    I was inspired by a recent forum thread, to write a click counter that can count clicks/hits to any HTML element (links, buttons, images, etc.). Multiple counts are saved to one text file (no database needed) using PHP, while AJAX displays the increasing numbers in real time. No page refresh required!

    It's very light-weight because no dependencies or large JavaScript libraries are used - it's all plain JS.

  2. Simple Sweep-in News Scroller (CSS3/JS)

    I've recently been working on digital signage displays for a school (scheduled web pages displayed on 42" TV screens) so I thought I'd write a short blog post to show you the mechanics of how their news and updates are presented on the screens.

  5. Iframes on iOS

    On iOS, a line like:
    <iframe src="" style="position: relative; width: 300px; height: 300px" frameborder="0"></iframe>
    won't produce a scrollable iframe having the height specified above, but an iframe whose height is automatically adapted to its contents. What scrolls, then, is not the iframe on the page, but the page itself.

    There's a way to force iOS to behave like you would expect. All you have to ...
