FancyBox has been my number one preference when I need to implement a jQuery-based lightbox on any web page I am working on. It is the most customizable and extensible jQuery plugin for this function. Since version 2.0, it also introduced a concept of ‘helpers’ to reduce the size of the main JS file and… Continue reading

Some developers claim 2014 will be the year of Flat File (or Non-Database) CMS. Personally I do not believe it will replace database-powered CMS anytime soon.

UPDATE: I was recently suggested to use WiFi Transfer instead, which I agree is as good or better if you plan to copy more than one photo. For years I have been trying to find the most efficient way to be able to quickly take photos using my iPhone and then send them to my… Continue reading
