The JsHelper in CakePHP 1.3 has replaced the AjaxHelper from CakePHP 1.2. I recently tried to implement the JsHelper without very much success; perhaps if I would have read the documentation more closely it would have been quite obvious what my mistake was. So in case you’re like me and often skim over long documentation of a helper when you just need one function (in my case $this->Js->submit()) then you can often miss very important information. This article will hopefully help clarify it.

In a previous article, I demonstrated how you can use jQuery to Transition AJAX Content into view with $.animate(). In this article, we are going to remove the jQuery animation and use CSS3 instead. Currently this is not supported by Internet Explorer and Opera.

I truly believe that Facebook is attempting to shape the Internet. Every time a changed is made, there is always massive uproar – both positive and negative. A recent change that I noticed was how they began using previously “unused” content spacing. This is done intelligently and only when you have a screen resolution greater than 1280 pixels wide. It’s an extremely simple process to add using the most basic CSS and some basic jQuery resize detection.
It’s time to permanently remove all “manual” sorting from the Internet. You know the one I mean where it has the up and down arrows – or even worse, the text box that accepts a numerical order input. By implementing the jQuery Sortable Plugin, you will be able to provide a simple, but effective drag-and-drop ordering solution for just about any type of data!

Have you ever written some code that lets a user change the display order of something – articles, photos, widgets, etc…? You know the one, either you have the up and down arrows or go old school and let them enter a numerical value. By implementing the jQuery UI Sortable plugin, you will never have to write such a poor system again!

Have you ever wanted to set a custom style on all images that contain .png as their extension? How about some custom CSS for a URL that is under SSL (perhaps add a lock image beside it?). In CSS3, new attribute selectors have been added to allow for partial matches to attribute values. The match can be at the start, end, or anywhere else in the string.
