Grid Designer 2 If you're familiar with the grid, a bit of design and basic typography, using this script should be pretty easy - most of the functions are pretty self-explanatory. If you're unfamiliar with grids in general, you could start by reading an excellent series of articles by web designer Mark Boulton. For those who want a real understanding of the theory of grids in relation to design and typography, I strongly recommend this book. On the Columns tab, you can start your design in two ways: Fill in the number of columns, total width, gutters and margin widths, all specified in pixels - then press the design button. Recalculate the settings in various ways by clicking the row of buttons located next to each setting.

Grid-A-Licious Back in mid 2008, I created a jQuery plugin. I named it Grid-A-Licious and described it as, "Divs are placed in chronological order with a special grid" because I had no clue how to explain it better. I used this script a lot and designed many sites with it during 2008. At first, people were very skeptic and confused on how to read the grid, and thought this kind of layout belonged in real papers. This reaction slowly faded away once the layout became more and more popular when different developers and designers started to create their own script's interpretation of the floating grid layout effect.

Creating a Slick Auto-Playing Featured Content Slider I love the Coda Slider plugin for jQuery. I've used it recently to build a couple of tabbed "widgets".

I also used it on an article for NETTUTS for a similar purpose.
