cristallo2

Today we speak of one of a script that does "snow" sites around the world. A simple effect "snow" that (unlike most) do not take advantage of the use of images.

The script is called "SnowStorm.js" and is released under the BSD license, then downloadable from schillmania.com. Enable the script is very simple, just enter it in the "head" of our page and you're done.

<script src="snowstorm.js"></script>

Javascript: automatically open external links in a new window

javascript

Today's article is a little advice on the links to have a website conforms to w3c(1). This procedure is valid in the case we are using version "XHTML 1.0 Strict", a bit 'dated, but still valid if declared tag in the "HTML" Site.

The web designer has different ways to set the aperture of a given link in a new page (or new tab) Part browser. The first to be implemented has been the inclusion of 'attribute "target='_blank'" inside the tag to refer to the links "<a>". This is the easiest way to open a link in a second window, but unfortunately does not respond to standard w3c.

CSSDeck: many ideas from web design professionals

pressable_button

From the birth of CSS3 web designers are literally crazy for countless new possibilities available. Some of the most striking are the ability to create a 'shading (also blurred) below the text or to any element, the possibility of rotate the pieces how many degrees you want, effects fade-in and fade-out and some simple animations in bother. The trend seems to be to abandon (the comunque diminuire) the use of computer graphics in favor of sophisticated rendering via CSS.

Some methods for countering email spam

spam

The satirical cartoon of today, of Randy Glasbergen introduces us to the problem of SPAM, a true scourge of the Internet. In some recent statistics the proportion of spam on all e-mails sent each day reaches'82%, and it is not difficult to compile statistics on their personal email box. For example, the 21 April I received eight spam emails... and eight email "good". The methane.

The scourge of spam is also due to little control providers "too cheap", or to laws of some countries too "libertine" that do not impose controls providers. But there is a solution to all, indeed there are several. Some time ago I've had to include an email address in the clear between the pages of a site. Write the address unencrypted email is tantamount to saying: "I'm here to receive SPAM", so I have documented and the solutions are many.

GTranslate: a widget for automatic translation

290711045_020a5e262a_m

Today we see up close one of the most automatisms that I have made my life easier on the web. Many of us know the "Language Tools" offered by Google, but not everyone knows that it is possible integrate the buttons "flag" on its own site to make a machine translation, snapshot of all the content without changing the address in the URL bar. I'm talking about GTranslate, a book which deals with the instant translation of all the content that is on a page; and an example you can see it by clicking on the flags in the right column, at the top of this site. In this case, the library is integrated in a a WordPress plugin (the motor that "turn" this blog), but you can use it with any website, even with static HTML pages.

The best HTML editor for non-commercial Linux

HTML_Icon_Final

Anyone who has ever tried to create piagne HTML with Linux you will certainly clashed with the lack of WYSIWYG software developed ad hoc for our favorite operating system. Fortunately, today this "gap" is filled only in part due to the development of some open source programs that attempt to compensate for the lack of development in Dreamweaver (or still commercial alternatives) su piattaforma Linux, but in many ways we are still far from having reached the usability of Dreamweaver or similar.

Today we see some of the best software for 'editing WYSIWYG developed natively for Linux. Thank you the blog web distortion translated for the advice that I report below.

preview

In today's tutorial we see how set the images of our site so that it appears to hover a caption at the bottom of the photo with fade-in effect / fade-out.

This technique makes use of some of the features implemented in the CSS3, the latest version. Unfortunately, not all browsers are still conformed to this specification, know that depending on the browser might not work. Newer browsers that support CSS3 are Firefox 4, Safari 5, Mobile Safari and Opera 10. Explore purtroppo do not support (apparently not even the next version: IE9), but however we will try not to forget IE users.

WordPress plugin: “Simple Javascript Management”

javascript

With "Simple Javascript Management" no longer need to go to edit the html header of our theme WordPress. The plugin will take care of load before the closing tag </head> the </body> scripts javascript local or remote.

I have to register, however, that the script go loaded manually on the web space, it is not possible to upload a script via the interface of the plugin. For the moment I only loaded the script "snowstorm" which allows the present snowfall on the homepage.

Javascript

Today we talk about javascript, not how to program, but how to implement the free resources already present in the web.

Javascript is a programming language to objects oriented web, and mainly used in this area. All major browsers (Firefox, IE, Opera, Safari, Chromium) support the use of javascript, the substantial difference between browsers (and above the target they point to) is the speed of execution.

8 WordPress plugin that will leave you more’ do without

wordpress-logo2

In today's article we see some useful plugins for WordPress I have made my life easier in the composition of the blog. Obviously the list not describe, and omit some plugins as important as "Akismet" because they already exist by default to every WordPress installation (not because it is useful, but because its benefits are undeniable).

WP Super Cache

It is one of the plugins in my opinion the most useful ever created for WordPress. WP Super Cache on fast access to visitors pages, creates a file HTML cache from the page visited PHP actually decreasing the use of resources on the server. In this way we have a dual advantage: User load the page faster and the server save energy.
