Zoom Out

Submitted by AppCreator on Thu, 07/24/2008 - 12:30

When developing the APSystems website the client wanted the banner image to zoom into focus when the page loads. Firstly I was thinking of doing it in Flash, my Flash skills are pretty rusty so I came up with a method of doing it via jQuery's animate effect.

Drupal's Dynamic layouts

Submitted by AppCreator on Thu, 06/26/2008 - 12:31

One of the many things taken for granted when working with Drupal is that ability to have dynamic layouts. Different layouts for different pages, based on the blocks assigned to regions for the page.

Variables are set during page construction that can tell you how many columns are required. Which in combination with the page.tpl.php and your stylesheet can provide any number of layouts.

People, I run into keep asking what I am working on, I suppose it's a bit like discussing the weather or asking how are you. So I thought I would post a couple of short blogs about some of the projects I have been working on. Current projects will have to go live before they are worth discussing.

MySQL Table Manager 3

Finally I have released version 3 of the MySQL Table Manager. The last version 2.8 was released in October 2003, that's nearly 5 years ago. I apologise for my lack of motivation in getting this one out, and hope you find the new version as useful as I do.

Many new features have been added such as user management, change privileges, backup functionality, ajax edit in place functionality to update fields, optimize tables, save queries, save results.
