There are some thing we all know we must never do with a technology. For example, we all know we must not do a welcome page in flash anymore, we also know that little animated gif envelopes are banned from contact forms.
These examples have done nothing more than give us content to mock at these poor technology choices.
There seems to be general consensus about these and quite frankly, they are banned because they either don’t bring anything more to the user or are plain ugly.
Occupy Flash is probably one of the dumbest movement I’ve seen in a while. Don’t get me wrong, I fully understand that choosing Flash for web development is not exactly the best choice you can make. The problem is that this campaign is totally useless and it’s probably more harmful than good.
Here’s one question that keeps coming back and here’s the ultimate guide to open prettyPhoto from an image map. The solution is really easy and pretty straightforward but let me break it up for you to make sure it’s clear.
Here’s yet another update to prettyPhoto. It’s quite a big one too, I’ve decided to change the default theme and add ajax support…finally.
The theme is a collaboration between Orman Clark and Christian Budsched (Kriesi). I just saw it being used in a WordPress theme and found it so nice that I had to make it the default theme of prettyPhoto. So Orman and Christian, thank you very very much for saying yes!
INK is a new way to own your content. It’s a well known fact, the content you produce can be shared all around the web and in a very large number of ways. One of the most common ways is to simply copy the content and paste it wherever we want it to be shared. That’s fair, but there’s one problem; most of the time you don’t get credited for the content you have produced and the shared content is given out of context without any way to go back to the source (your site!)
I know, I haven’t been really active lately, but don’t worry I was working on prettyPhoto for the past several months. This new version does not boast any new feature (*sad face*), but it does contains a lot of bug fixes. It is a recommended update for anyone running prettyPhoto on their site.
