Pagination and Backbone.js

Friday, December 30th, 2011

I recently had to create some pagination for a backbone.js project I’ve been working on.  What I created has been working quite well but was not 100% happy with what I did.  Since I had a week off I figured I’d rewrite it as a mixin and clean up the approach.  Will have to work […]

Sunday, November 18th, 2007

When building my first real plugin for WordPress, I wanted to utilize some Ajax approaches that would use JSON and which would make for a speedy process, but quickly found that 1) PHP4 does not support the “json_decode” function, 2) the classes that json.org recommended were too hard to put into play, and 3) once […]

jQuery: jqGalViewII (Photo Gallery)

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

With the success of the jqGalView Plugin I’ve decided to release the jQuery jqGalViewII (beta) Plugin which allows you to take a grouping of images and turn it into an flash-like image/photo gallery, much like what the jqGalView Plugin does for you. It allows you to style it how ever you want and add as many images at you want.
