Simple Responsive Table Solution for Mobile using jQuery

So far I’ve found all the proposed solutions for dealing with wide tables on mobile to be a bit cumbersome and just not that great. Then I had the idea of wrapping the table in a div and just using overflow to make it scroll sideways without breaking the layout. (more…)

Replace checkbox inputs with “mobile style” toggle switches using jquery and css

So as the world gets more and more mobile people are getting used to seeing the toggle switches seen on iPhone/iOS and Android user interfaces. They are very intuitive and downright fun, and much easier to use than checkboxes. I’m working on a project that has a user interface that calls for this so I decided to extend the Super Simple Fancy Checkbox Plugin by Dave Macaulay by cleaning it up a bit and creating some fun flat style toggle switches.

Mobile Web Development – 5 Best Practices that are often overlooked

The web is going mobile and fast. Very fast. I’m not going to take the time to link to all the statistics here, but in short: Android and iPhones are taking over the world’s pockets. They have very capable browsers, reasonable fast internet, and reasonably fast processors. It won’t be long until websites get more visits from mobile then from desktop. (more…)

PHP Conditional Statement – In Between Dates

Facebook “Fan Us” fixed position side tab button

Recently I’ve been seeing these “feedback” tabs fixed to the left or right side of websites that open up customer feedback forms by companies like UserVoice. While browsing websites that use this product, these buttons have really gotten my attention. So I thought.. why not make one to promote a website’s Facebook Fan Page, so more users become a fan? So I did, and here’s the code :) (more…)

Degradable PNG Transparency for IE6

All (sane) web developers are eagerly awaiting the day Internet Explorer 6 dies. While there are a number of opinions in the community on when we should drop support and how we should encourage users to upgrade, the (sad) fact is that (as of this writing) roughly 25% of the world is still using it. That being said, I am still going to be at a minimum, creating sites that degrade gracefully and function fully for IE6 for some time to come. OK now what were we talking about? (more…)

Making better Forms: Clickable text for Radio Button and Checkbox Fields

I’ve never been a big fan of building web forms, and I don’t know many people who are. However, the fact of the matter is that almost every website has a few forms, and these forms play a key roll in the user experience.  Larger websites have huge, complex forms, that we as web developers spend a lot of time building, and thousands of users spend even more time filling out. That being said I think it’s important to become well versed in the ins and outs of building a proper form. (more…)

Internet has become a mandatory part of most of our lives. It’s a bit annoying when you get to a hotel and they want you to pay an extra $9.95, $14.95, or sometimes even $19.95 per night for internet! If you’re at a conference for a weekend or week this can get a bit costly.
