Just found this pretty nifty plugin called jQuery Scroll Path written by @JoelBesada. It provides a fun way to rotate the whole page and scroll following a path instead of simple up/down. Check out his blog for a couple other cool projects.
Now I need to figure out a project I can use it on!
Working on a new project for my job, I came across a need for limiting the number of selected checkboxes in a form. After searching online for a bit, I found this script which worked perfectly!
Recently I started using Piwik at my new job. According to their website, it’s “a free web analytics tool that provides you with detailed reports on your website’s visitors, your marketing campaigns and much more. Piwik is an open source alternative to Google Analytics, available in 45 languages, and has been downloaded more than 1 million times!” One thing I noticed it was missing was an easy way to clear out analytics after you’ve been testing before going live with a website. After a bit of researching, I found http://piwik.org/faq/how-to/#faq_73 which gave me an idea; why not write a simple query with a variable to do all of these things at once, but for a single website instead of dropping ALL of the data in the DB.
I was approached by a doctor’s office to request I create a simple way for their patients to fill out forms. I wrote a simple PHP form which when the patient submitted, would input their information into a PDF and send this via email to the doctor’s office.
