jQuery Site Exit » Aug 12, 2010 1:30 PM » Coding
Here's a nifty little jQuery plug-in I made to watch for an external link and pop up one of those "You're leaving our site!1!" messages:

$(document).ready(function() { $("a[href^='http://']").click(function() {

urlOut = this.href;

$("#exitMsg").dialog({ modal: true, width: 400, draggable: false, resizable: false, buttons: { Cancel: function() { $(this).dialog('close'); }, Continue: function() { window.location.href = urlOut;}, } });

return false;

}); });

This one triggers the standard jQuery UI dialog box that has lots of customizable options. In this case there is a cancel button and a continue on to the external site button.

Flow Chart Sample » Jan 19, 2010 10:51 AM » Coding
Maybe I shouldn't admit this, but I don't really do flow charts very often. This is usually something that either the client works up internally as part of their planning phase, or someone else involved in the project does them. I also think to a certain degree they aren't as necessary as they used to be. Most website these days are highly modular, dynamic, flexible and aren't constricted by the apparent structure. Page and entire sections can be reordered on the fly, sometimes even with the administrative tool-set.

Here's one I did recently and I thought it came out really well. I used MS Visio which is part of the fancier versions of Office. I'd never really worked with it before, but I actually has a pretty good time making this up.
