Real-life clients have real-life needs for their websites. They don’t care about your fancy RSS feeds and AJAX, they just want their website to do what they tell you they want it to do. In this screencast I walk through an example feature I am building for a real-life client who needed some very specific functionality built into a page. It is an ordering process that needs to check for a ...
In Part 1 of day fifteen, we worked on setting up the PHP side of a CSS style-switcher. Today, we’re going to take things one step further and implement some AJAX functionality. Coming in at just under thirty minutes, this final video in the series is the most in depth. As an unintended “bonus”, I had to take a couple of minutes to fix some mistakes that I made. I could just a...
ThemeForest has a nice feature; It allows the authors to upload zip files containing screenshots of their themes. A script then extracts these files and displays the images accordingly.

Today’s screencast is a bit misleading! Over the course of the next two tutorials, we’ll be creating a jQuery style-switcher that will allow the user to switch between CSS files. However, today we’re only going to be working with PHP! Day 15: Part 2 will cover the jQuery. Created by Jeffrey.
In this lesson we will create a sweet-action AJAX Definition retriever with jQuery and PHP – leeching definitions from the ever-wise Google of course.
Creating a completely custom theme for the popular forums software phpBB would be a monster job.

We do just that in this screencast, and work out the kinks that pop up.
Today, I’m going to show you how to submit information to a database asynchronously - using PHP and jQuery. We’ll be primarily working with the $.ajax method. Created by Jeffrey.
Today will be the first part of a 2-part series. Ultimately, we’ll be drawing information from a database to create an advanced tooltip. Today, we’ll start with the layout and the basic functionality. It shouldn’t be too different from what we did in Day 11. In Part 2, we’ll use jQuery to call a PHP method asynchronously, and then populate the tooltip. Created by Jeffrey.
I noticed a thread on the forums that discussed exactly how to implement a working contact form into a site template. So I thought to myself, “What better way to demonstrate the process than with a screencast!” Created by Jeffrey.
As we all know, WordPress is so extensive that you can use it for nearly anything. There are even articles on sites with crazy titles such as 101 alternative uses for WordPress. So I thought, hey, why not? I bet a lot of people want to create their own Web Apps, and essentially WordPress can do that for you. In this video tutorial, we're going to make an online Address Book.
