Create an unobtrusive photo gallery

Saturday, April 5th, 2008

As you very well know by now, I have created quite a few image / photo galleries and the ultimate goal was to allow them to be as unobtrusive as possible. Well, the other day I got into a discussion with a co-worker and the questions he asked were, “How is that unobtrusive?”, referring to my gallery plugins, “The images are in list elements?” My answer to that was, “They can be styled to have each list element float and punched up a bit.” His rebuttal, “But what if styles were off also?” I hesitated for a second and he know he had won this conversation and silently walked away.

jQuery: what are the fastest selectors?

Friday, November 23rd, 2007

Update 12/07/2007: per Brian Cherne comments, I decided to run these test again in Firefox with firebug lite instead of firebug and the execution times were dreastically different. So, to “level the playing field” I would suggest that you turn off firebug or disable it for the page and refresh, you will get the firebug […]

Using JSON in PHP4 and PHP5 with an included class or json_decode

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 […]

VerticalFillJs: Auto-resize text to fill available space

jqGalViewIII (proof of concept)

Sunday, October 21st, 2007

Here we have yet another photo / image gallery, except at this point it is only a proof of concept. I see a ton of photo galleries in Flash and see a lot of effects that just can’t be done in JavaScript, but a ton of effects that can be achieved. This one is nothing fancy and not fully tested, but when I have more time I may take is some other features that are present in my other plugins in to this one.

jQuery: jqGalViewII (Photo Gallery)

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.
