Paintballing
3 years 10 months ago
Armed and dangerous, the emunications team set out on an arguably friendly game of paintball. Quality assurance teamed up with design for what we call, "shooting fish in a barrel" - and by fish, we mean Jason and Kevin. On just the second game, I spotted someone atop a building looking down on my teammates. That someone was Jason, who seconds later took a swift paintball to the face. Sure he was...

In terms of aesthetics, design is by and large a tool to convey a message to your users. Are you a large company? Are you professional? Do you have a sense of humor? Or simply (and most importantly), “What is it that you do?” These are all questions that will be answered for your users in fewer than 5 seconds of viewing your website, so it’s important you’re sending the right message. Just...
jQuery

If you haven't taken the time to check out this framework you absolutely must do so now. jQuery allows you to accomplish so much more with so much little. It may be a little arcane to look at the first time, but after a little research, you'll wonder how you lived without it. Case in point, here's a quick script to add zebra highlighting to a table with id 'myTable'. // Do zebra highlighting...

For a recent site, we needed to have a menu block be visible on pages which were represented in the menu. That is to say, if the page you are looking at is in the "Editorial stuff" menu, display the editorial stuff menu block. The trick here is to use PHP for determining the block visibility for the menu blocks. If we're looking at a node derivative, the node id should be in the link_path...

A common problem that I see when working with non-table views is dynamic sorting. It seems as if there's no easy way to make use of the sort functionality that views provides without using the table style. This is the method that I use to get around the problem. I'm not the first to do it this way, and I'm also not convinced it's the easiest way to do it. But it does work and we've used it...

Drupal

 Here's another quick one,  We recently had a client report that they received a PCI violation because Drupal login forms do not feature the "autocomplete=off" attribute. This could be fixed with a custom template, or hacking core (!!!) but I whipped up this quick module to fix it instead, so that I wouldn't have to worry about issues integrating with client templates and could...
