Circle Navigation Effect with CSS3
Today we want to show you how to create a beautiful hover effect for an image navigation using CSS3.

The Markup For this little CSS3 effect we will have a navigation structure that looks like the following: <div class="cn-nav"><a href="#" class="cn-nav-prev"><span>Previous</span><div style="background-image:url(.. In our demo we will make a jQuery template out of this and dynamically add the thumbnails for the previous and next images of the slider. The CSS Let’s see now, how to add the style for this navigation. The span element, which will contain the arrows as a background image will have an initial height and width of 46 pixel.

Demo | jQuery.popeye 2.1 | an inline lightbox alternative with slideshow x Note: To see the full potential of CSS3 styling (shadows, gradients, rounded corners, alpha transparency), please view this page in a modern webkit or mozilla browser (Firefox 3.5+, Safari 4, Opera 10.50, Chrome 4). Other browsers will degrade gracefully. Example 1 The first popeye-box uses the standard options: it floats to the left and opens to the right, its navigation and caption show on mouseover. By placing the navigation inside the stage area (where the image is displayed), we can get it to hover above the image. No need to read this, just dummy text ;-) Vivamus ut nisi id libero interdum pretium. View HTML code used in this example Example 2 The second popeye-box has the following user-defined options: direction: 'left' - open to the left. caption: false - do not display captions (even though the images have alt tags with text). navigation: 'permanent' - the navigation is always visible. The navigation stays fixed to the right of the image. View HTML code used in this example Donate

Facebox 1.3 What is it? Facebox is a jQuery-based, Facebook-style lightbox which can display images, divs, or entire remote pages. It's simple to use and easy on the eyes. Download the tarball, view the examples, then start enjoying the curves. Why another lightbox? Because we wanted, nay, needed a Facebook-style lightbox on FamSpam. Load Dependencies Make sure jQuery is loaded before Facebox. Attach It onLoad While calling facebox() on any anchor tag will do the trick, it's easier to give your Faceboxy links a rel="facebox" and hit them all onLoad. jQuery(document).ready(function($) { $('a[rel*=facebox]').facebox() }) Extra Classes You can give the facebox container an extra class (to fine-tune the display of reusable remote pages) with the facebox[.class] rel syntax. Maybe your Terms and Conditions can be loaded standalone or via Facebox. View an an example which makes the remote.html page bigger and bolder using css.

Boba.js / space150 85 Awesome jQuery Slider Plugins Slider are very useful and increasingly popular web page elements used for highlighting important content. By using a jQuery slider plugin, one can create amazing HTML slider effects with fancy animations of content elements like text and images. jQuery takes care of the difficult aspects like browser support and typically when using jQuery plugins it can be done with very little coding effort. This is the reason why jQuery sliders and jQuery banner slideshow scripts have become very popular on most types of websites. They are are typically used to feature multiple products, news, video etc. without taking up a lot of space on the pages. In fact, we see sliders on most news and business websites today and they are placed on the most important location over the fold on the front page.

Infinity.js A ListView is a container that moves content in and out of the DOM on the scroll event. ListViews help keep repaint times of expensive pages down (and scrolling smooth) by making sure that there are never too many elements onscreen at a single time. ListViews excel at speeding up long lists of complex HTML elements, where new content is frequently appended to the end and existing content is rarely removed. ListViews are simple, and have several caveats: they can't be nested inside each other, and they can't have heights set via CSS. Additionally, ListViews can't easily change sizes except by appending or removing elements, and so list items that need to slide open or change their sizing will be difficult to implement.

brandonaaron/jquery-mousewheel Transit - CSS transitions and transformations for jQuery What about older browsers? Transit degrades older browsers by simply not doing the transformations (rotate, scale, etc) while still doing standard CSS (opacity, marginLeft, etc) without any animation. Delays and durations will be ignored. // Delegate .transition() calls to .animate()// if the browser can't do CSS transitions.if (!$.support.transition) $.fn.transition = $.fn.animate; Fallback to frame-based animation If you would like to fallback to classic animation when transitions aren't supported, just manually redefine .transitition to .animate. (Note: if you're using custom easing, you may need to also use jQuery Easing, and restrict your use of easing options to the ones defined there.) $.fx.speeds. Default duration Transit honors jQuery's default speed, $.fx.speeds. Custom easing Define custom easing aliases in $.cssEase. Webkit: prevent flickers Having flickering problems in Webkit?
