  1. Every PHP Tutorial Is Wrong

    Many PHP tutorials begin with an introduction to the "basics" of the language: the <?php ?> tags, and usually the echo construct. For example, something like this:

    PHP Code:
    <html>
    <head>
        <title>My First PHP Page</title>
    </head>
    <body>
        <?php
            
    echo "Hello World!";
        
    ?>

    </html>

  2. Scroll to Top Script

    Here's my alternative to the ddscript Jquery Scroll to Top Control V1.1

    scroll_to_top.js

    Code:
    $.fn.scroll_to_top = function(userOptions) {
    	var check_scroll = 0;
        var defaultOptions = {
    		image : 'jump_to_top.png',
    		image_height : '6%',
    		image_width : '3%',
    		scroll_distance : 200,
    		scroll_location : 0,
    		scroll_speed : 600,
    		button_animate_speed : 200,
    		button_animate_type : 'fade',

  3. Order Form w/current options live total

    Okey doke,
    there haven't been any blogs in a while, so I thought I might have some. It's about a thread I was on (here) in which Williamsun wanted a form which autosummed a price. I ended up coming up with something along these lines.

    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

  4. Lightbox Bad, SlimBox Good

    The title overstates the point. Both these scripts in their latest versions are pretty darn good as are many of the other Lightbox type scripts out there (see end for two others or Google Lightbox for more, though not all are as good as those mentioned here, many including the original Lightbox mentioned in the title of this blog entry are).

    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 ...
