CSS Min-Height Hack in Internet Explorer

Posted on 12/15/2009 at 10:18 am | Viewed 10,702 times | 0 comments

Another day of web developing with CSS and another day of needing a hack for IE6 and IE7.  This isn't really a hack so much as it's a method of ordering statements in your CSS declaration that yields a working min-height declaration in Internet Explorer.  Well, I guess it's a hack (but I hate using them). CSS min-height will be used in browsers...

I've been working on setting up a multi-lingual web site for one of my clients.  I was excited at the opportunity to finally use CakePHP's built-in internationalization and locale functions.  However, I ran into some issues that I'm sure other newbies to internationaliztion will run into as well.  Here's some take-backs of what I learned while...

I was upgrading the version of Jquery UI that I use with Site Avenger.  The last time I was in a rush, nothing seemed to work and I rolled the changes back.  This time, I took the time and decided to finally make this Jquery UI upgrade happen.  This time everything went swell, except my Jquery UI tabs plugin stopped working.  WTF? Read the...

For a while it's bugged me that I wasn't able to see the rendered output of my email messages that are sent using the CakePHP email component. I would change my code to use a remote smtp server but I still had to send messages.  Well, I finally figured out how to "debug" my emails sent using CakePHP.  Thanks to this posting for finally...

There is so much cool stuff out there that's already been done with CakePHP.  In an attempt to catalog it for my own use later, I'm going to start creating blog posts that highlight cool behaviors, components, etc. for CakePHP.  This is the first one. From the Bakery : "A behavior that will automatically encrypt/decrypt specified fields in a...

Jquery Accordion Menu - Expanding UL Menu

Posted on 11/17/2009 at 01:25 pm | Viewed 29,683 times | 0 comments

I looked around and found some interesting examples and existing plugins for creating an accordion menu in Jquery.  What I was looking for was a nested unordered list (UL) that would collapse and expand based on which menu item was clicked.  If there wasn't a child UL, then the menu link should be clickable, instead of an accordion.  Sounds...

Jquery Direct Descendant Selector (using the >)

Posted on 11/17/2009 at 01:08 pm | Viewed 11,809 times | 0 comments

I'd been struggling with a very simple accordion menu script .  The problem was that I couldn't stop all of the links from returning false, when I only wanted to top link to return false.  Let me show you my code: $('div#sideNav li:has(ul) a').click(function() { return false; }); What was going on (and correctly I might add) was all links...

This answer was located at WebMasterWorld.com on 11/12/09.  Answers written by johnl . I was reading up on the CSS font-style property, making sure the default value was normal.  In case you are wondering, the default font-style value is normal.  What struck me was a new value I've never used before: oblique.  Now I'm curious... what's...

CSS Small-Caps Working in IE Not in Firefox

Posted on 09/24/2009 at 11:03 am | Viewed 11,548 times | 0 comments

Another IE/FF Inconsistancy? I thought I had ran into an interesting (and new) CSS bug.  I was using Trebuchet MS as my font for my H2s.  It was rendering perfect in Internet Explorer but not in Firefox.  In Firefox, all caps.  In IE, small-caps.  What gives?
