Full Screen Image Gallery Using jQuery and Flickr : DevKick Blog jQuery for Designers How to Solve the Problem Recreating this effect is simple to do if you know what plugins to use. There are plugins out in the wild already, but we want our jQuery to satisfy the following requirements: Degrades perfectly without JavaScript enabledSliding panels effect without hogging browser CPUNext and previous buttons added using JavaScript because they hold no use without JavaScriptHitting the page with a specific hash (i.e. page.html#preview) shows the right tab, and highlights the right navigationAny link on the page that refers back to a panel should trigger the effect and highlight the right navigation – this should happen without any extra work The hash is the emphasised part (including the # symbol) in: In fact, our version of this slider will be better than Panic’s and the current jQuery plugins if we can meet all of the requirements. I’ve provided a screencast to walk through how create this functionality. Plugins Required Markup

Javascript Page Slider Roundup "Page Sliders" are a bit like Tabbed Boxes, only the content appears to slide by instead of be instantly replaced. This is a pretty nice effect and like tabbed boxes, it can help you get a lot of content onto a single page without risking visual clutter. There are a number of techniques and frameworks for creating these page sliders. Here is a round up of some ones that I have found and used. Coda Slider Niall Doherty's Coda Slider was created (and named) in honor of the very nice page slider in use on Panic's Coda software page. Step Carousel Viewer Dynamic Drive offers a page slider script they call the Step Carousel Viewer, which uses jQuery as well. "Follow The Mouse" Slider Antonio Lupetti over at Woork has a pretty cool page slider up he says Simulates a Flash Horizontal Navigational Effect, this time using MooTools. jCarousel When I was asking around about these page sliders, jCarousel is the one that I heard about most often so I think it's the "most popular".

jQuery Expander slideToggle("fast") The .slideToggle() method animates the height of the matched elements, causing the matched elements to be hidden or shown in a "sliding" manner. If the element is initially shown, it will be hidden. If it is initially hidden, it will be shown. When the height reaches 0 after a hiding animation, the display style property is set to 'none' so the element no longer affects the layout of the page. The duration of the animation of this section is 'fast', i.e., 200 milliseconds. John V. It is important to mention that the Atanasoff-Berry Computer was never patented and because of that it was not known until 1960's. First public recognition: In 1970 John Atanasoff was invited to Bulgaria by the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, and the Bulgarian Government conferred to him the Order of Saints Cyril and Methodius, First Class (Bulgaria's highest honor accorded a scientist).

jQuery Infinite Carousel Plugin Update: The latest version of this plugin can be found here. The other day, yet again, I went looking for a jQuery plugin that moved a set of images inside a display area. I’m not sure if this is a carousel, a gallery, a slideshow, or what. They all seem to share many common characteristics, but regardless I wasn’t able to find what I wanted, although I did find several different plugins that did part of what I wanted to do, which was to generate a simple unordered list of images and optionally have a caption for each one. If a visitor doesn’t have JavaScript enabled (yes both of them) they should still be able to see the images, but for the 99.9% of the web population that does have JavaScript enabled, they should get a simple, slick carousel of images. So I set out to create my own plugin and here’s what I ended up with: You can move between images using the left and right arrows which when clicked, pauses the carousel.
