Image and content sliders are an extremely common element in modern web design. Coding your own slider from scratch is always an option, but if you’re looking to save some time or if you’re not sure how to code your own slider there are plenty of options. In some cases, working with an existing jQuery plugin will give you the chance to observe the code that is being used, and learn things that can be used in situations where you do want to code from scratch.
In this post we’ll look at 20 different options for sliders. Many of them allow you to create responsive sliders, and some are optimized for mobile users as well. Most of these options are free. The last two listed are premium, and one is free with options to pay for a WordPress plugin version.
Slider Revolution is a premium WordPress plugin ($15) that allows you to easily create and customize responsive sliders. It comes with 20 different transitions, it’s touch enabled, and you can include just about any content you want within your slider.
The popularity of social networking has converted a lot of websites to be more user-centric. This means you can find loads of new profile features and direct-connect OAuth apps through Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, and others. Typically the profile photo is a common facet to each profile webpage design. Photos or avatars can be uploaded by the user, and sometimes pulled directly from their other accounts online.

Design trends have been advancing where new CSS properties are becoming much more widely supported. This means frontend developers can start really pushing the boundaries of how we style media in webpages. The user experience of a profile page is definitely a good place to start.
Creating web forms can be one of the most time consuming and sometimes frustrating parts of creating a website. It becomes especially challenging when you need an advanced form that involves things like conditional logic, multi-page forms, support for file uploads or attachments, and payment integration. Fortunately, there are a number of tools, resources, and apps that are available to make the process much less time consuming.
In this post we’ll take a look at several options for creating web forms, both basic and advanced, quickly and easily.
I want to focus this tutorial on using modal windows within a typical webpage. We just need to include two files out of the Bootstrap framework. And the JS codes are not overly complicated to understand. My example demo allows users to dynamically update the background color, so this does admittedly have some more sample JS then you will need. But it is an excellent introduction to adding these brief components into any ordinary website.
Many web design studios and freelance portfolios will incorporate the popular single page navigation technique. The benefits of such a layout allows visitors to go through all your main content without needing to reload the website. Additionally this helps to keep the interface very simple and easy to maneuver.
With constantly changing trends and a five fold increase in mobile Internet users, more and more companies are aiming to create sites which will make their services available to mobile users. It is a fact that what seems to be more important on a desktop might not be equally important or useful for a mobile user who is accessing the page on a much smaller screen and is on the go. This is why, thinking properly before you choose to build a site for smaller devices, for your company is important. Here you will also have a few different options. These three options are:
1. Responsive Web Design
A responsive website is basically a website which can adapt itself on different screens regardless of the device you are playing it on. You build one single responsive website and it resizes itself accordingly.
Having made an entry into the realm of eCommerce not so long ago (in 2008), in its brief stint of less than 5 years, Magento has already made a mark for itself and is now owned by eBay.

After looking over countless jQuery plugins I have seen a lot of new HTML5 video techniques. The audio and video elements have created a new method of publishing digital media, streaming off a web server. But developers have been hard at work customizing these features to be used within advanced layouts.
In this tutorial I want to look at using big video backgrounds within typical website layouts. I’ve chosen the jQuery plugin BigVideo.js which includes a list of resources in the documentation. We can setup genuine HTML5 videos streaming as backgrounds behind the main page content. It is not an easy setup, but I’ll provide a clear step-by-step process to follow along.
What are your considerations while shopping for a smartphone? Entertainment, infotainment, communication, professional aids, or something else? On the prowl, you learn that your hunt for the best buy doesn’t seem to end anywhere soon. You find yourselves in an ocean of smartphones having features with very little noticeable differentiation. Nearly all smartphones offer you similar features that you’re craving. Even if you’re ready to settle down for one or two unique features, it’s not always easy to spot them. But a platform vendor or an app developer never misses them – nor can they afford to.
