Poll – Which Modal Window Option Do YOU Use?

Nobody uses javascript to pop open a new window with an enlarged version of an image anymore, we now use Modal Windows. But with so many options out there, which one should you use? I decided to open up a new poll to see what other designers are using these days for Modal Windows.

Add an auto-updating Copyright to your website with PHP

It’s important to keep an updated copyright in the footer of your website. You want your website to be up to date, but you don’t want to have to manually change the copyright date every year. There are multiple ways of pulling this off, including Javascript and PHP.

I’ll show you the PHP method here, and give you the code you need for your website or blog.

404

Create a .htaccess file to redirect to a 404.html page

A 404 error is what happens when you try to access a page on a website that doesn’t exist. We’ve all gotten them; due to typos, a moved file, whatever the case. As designers / developers we need to make sure we help the users of our websites should this happen to them. I’ll show you how to make a custom 404 page here.
