HTML 5 – Drag n’ drop

dragstart
A drag has been initiated, with the dragged element as the event target.
drag
The mouse has moved, with the dragged element as the event target.
dragenter
The dragged element has been moved into a drop listener, with the drop listener element as the event target.
dragover
The dragged element has been moved over a drop listener, with the drop listener element as the event target. Since the default behavior is to cancel drops, returning false or calling preventDefault() in the event handler indicates that a drop is allowed here.
dragleave
The dragged element has been moved out of a drop listener, with the drop listener element as the event target.
drop
The dragged element has been successfully dropped on a drop listener, with the drop listener element as the event target.
dragend
A drag has been ended, successfully or not, with the dragged element as the event target.

WordPress Registration Plugin

I do so much random research I can’t keep track of it all. This time I’m saving it, and I guess also sharing it.

What: WordPress Plug-ins

1) User Registration

  • Subscribe2 – Seems promising but registration options are kind of limited, liking Register Plus better so far
  • Register Plus – Like it a lot, seems to do everything I need, including custom registration page

Additional:

WP-FacebookConnect

Facebook integration plug-in, so if you don’t want to sign-up or anything, you can post comments with your facebook account.

WP-reCAPTCHA

Anti-spam

Going to test them out on a site now. Woohooo. More to come…

ModX

modx

Purple’s a little bright on the site but I’ve been told it’s a promising custom CMS.

Having trouble uploading the image from work. Either way, here’s the link.

XHTML2 subsumed under HTML5

I was really liking the rigidity of XHTML and potential for being completely cross-browser compliant because of the strictness.

Unfortunately, now comes this,

“XHTML2 Working group expected to stop work end of 2009, W3C to increase resources on HTML5”

And to be honest, I think I’m completely okay with it. XHTML had amazing intentions and taught people to code with a rigid standard again. However, not being able to serve it up as what it truly is, XML, makes it silly to continue on. Still I did a pretty thorough investigation on this, see below for a ton of information.

WordPress Themes & GPL

I love how, even at a legal level, code is a separate entity from styles/graphics.

From the WordPress Blog, “…Rather, the PHP files are subject to the requirements of the GPL while the images and CSS are not…” – James Vasile¬†Software Freedom Law Center

Another excellent article on the matter can be found here.

Image links

I keep forgetting this so here it is, to remove the border around “image links”, set the border style on the IMAGE to none.

Example:

<div id=”example>

<a href =” somewhere.html” > <img src=”someimage.jpg” /> </a>

</div>

To remove the nasty border around the image that happens because it’s embedded in a link you have to set the border style to none, like so:

CSS

#example a img {

border-style:none;
}
Now hopefully I’ll remember this.
