SimpleModal 1.3.5 Released http://www.ericmmartin.com/simplemodal-1-3-5-released/ http://www.ericmmartin.com/simplemodal-1-3-5-released/#comments Thu, 22 Apr 2010 15:27:57 +0000 http://www.ericmmartin.com/?p=999 SimpleModal 1.3.5 is now available for download.

The transient option, which was added in 1.3.4, was renamed to modal because transient is a reserved word and was causing issues.

Also, the reference to $.support.boxModal was changed back to $.boxModal to remain compatible with older versions of jQuery.


I've also been working on a new site for SimpleModal. It's not ready yet, but I've included a preview below:

SimpleModal.com

Also, if you have any feedback or input on what you'd like to see on the new site, please let me know. I want to make it as useful as possible.

If you have any questions regarding SimpleModal, I strongly suggest using stackoverflow. If you find any bugs, please report them on the issues page.

Thanks for using SimpleModal!

SimpleModal 1.3.4 Released http://www.ericmmartin.com/simplemodal-1-3-4-released/ http://www.ericmmartin.com/simplemodal-1-3-4-released/#comments Thu, 11 Mar 2010 19:28:14 +0000 http://www.ericmmartin.com/?p=967 SimpleModal 1.3.4 is now available for download.

A new option, transient, was added which allows you to disable the overlay, iframe, and certain events. This would allow the user to still interact with the page below the dialog.

Another container dimension fix was added to deal with Opera quirks. Lastly, a new internal placeholder was added to keep track of where the modal content came from (if it came from the DOM).


Complete list of features and changes since 1.3.3:

  • Changed default values for minHeight and minWidth to null
  • Added transient option which, if true, disables the overlay, iframe, and certain events, allowing the user to interace with the page below the dialog
  • Changed $.boxModel to $.support.boxModel
  • Fixed container dimension issues in Opera
  • Added a placeholder element for modal content taken from the DOM
  • Updated demo's and added a new Flickr Badge Gallery demo

jQuery Enlightenment Review & Giveaway http://www.ericmmartin.com/jquery-enlightenment-review-giveaway/ http://www.ericmmartin.com/jquery-enlightenment-review-giveaway/#comments Sat, 16 Jan 2010 17:19:21 +0000 http://www.ericmmartin.com/?p=944 After buying and reading Cody Lindley's jQuery Enlightenment last year, I was so impressed with it that I asked Cody if he'd be willing to provide me with some discount codes to share on my blog. Expecting 25% off coupons or something similar, I was very surprised when he generously gave me 3 coupons for free copies of his popular book.

My Review

I don't usually buy technical books; I'm more of a hands-on learner and the books that I've purchased in the past just collect dust. It's one of the reasons why I'm so impressed with jQuery Enlightenment. Besides being an eBook (and therefore can't collect dust), Cody has structured the book in a way that makes it perfect to have as a learning tool as well as a reference.


You can read the book top-down or skim through the topics, find something you're interested in, and get a detailed and easy to understand write-up on the subject. Cody takes the learning processes one step further by providing code examples, linked to JS BIN, that can be viewed and run in your browser. For someone like me, the concrete examples and ability to play with the concepts, helps reinforce the topics covered.

Whether you are a new jQuery users, or a seasoned jQuery developer, jQuery Enlightenment won't disappoint!

jQuery 1.4

The current version of jQuery Enlightenment was written for jQuery 1.3.2. I spoke to Cody about the recent release of jQuery 1.4 and his plans for an update. He is working on a new version of the book that he estimates will have twice the content (or more) and is tentatively priced at $30. Lastly, he plans to offer a limited-time discount on the update for existing jQuery Enlightenment owners. [Note from Cody: All of this information is subject to change]

Giveaway

As mentioned previously, I have 3 coupons available for free copies of jQuery Enlightenment. If you would like a chance to win, leave a comment below and on Wednesday (1/20) at 2pm PST, I will randomly select 3 people.

Winners!

The random number generator has spoken and the following people have won a coupon for a free copy of jQuery Enlightenment:

  • Jim
  • Sam De La Garza
  • Bjorn van der Neut

I'll be sending the coupons codes out shortly. Congratulations, I know you'll enjoy the book.

SimpleModal Login Released http://www.ericmmartin.com/simplemodal-login-released/ http://www.ericmmartin.com/simplemodal-login-released/#comments Fri, 18 Dec 2009 14:58:21 +0000 http://www.ericmmartin.com/?p=925 I'd like to introduce SimpleModal Login, a modal Ajax login for WordPress which utilizes jQuery and the SimpleModal jQuery plugin.

SimpleModal Login handles logging into WordPress but does not handle user registration or the forgot password functions.

SimpleModal Login also supports themes, something I'm planning on adding to the SimpleModal Contact Form plugin as well.

If you have any feedback or issues, please let me know!

SimpleModal Login is a modal Ajax login for WordPress which utilizes jQuery and the SimpleModal jQuery plugin.

There are currently two themes available, each of which can be modified as required. Currently the plugin only handles the login process and does not handle user registration or the forgot password feature.
