A Navigation Menu With Style!

As you may know, the first 20 seconds of a new visitor’s interaction with a website determine whether they are going to stay or leave. This means you have to follow common design practices and put everything where the user would expect it to be. A crucial part of this process is developing an easy to use navigation menu.

Apple-style Slideshow Gallery

When speaking about design, there is one company that is impossible to go without. Apple values design – being a new product, a fancy catalog or their website – there is always something to admire. This week, we are making an Apple-like slideshow gallery, similar to the one they use on their website to showcase their products. It will be entirely front-end based, no PHP or databases required.

A Nice Slide Out Navigation

After I got a lot of feedback for the Beautiful Slide Out Navigation, I had some new ideas for a similar horizontal navigation. Thanks a lot to everyone! Like Stefan Matei pointed out, it might be quite cute but we don’t want the user to hover over all options first, in order to see what menu items exit. So, I thought about labeling the menu items and making them stick out, so the user can always “see” what the navigation entails. Being in a horizontal position makes everything readable and when the user hovers over the label, the rest of the item with the icon will slide out.

FancyZoom

This much-requested chunk of Javascript to zoom images inline, originally written for this blog but later rolled out to the Panic website and used for screenshots, is now polished up, bug-fixed, available for you to use on your website! Designed to view full-size photos and images inline without requiring a separate web page load, FancyZoom’s raison d’être (French for “raisin-determination”) is providing a smooth, clean, truly Mac-like effect, almost like it’s a function of Safari itself.

vTip for Lightweight Tooltips

vTip is designed to quickly provide very lightweight (706b js, 272b CSS, 270b image) tooltips to users of jQuery. The zip includes everything you need (including an example page), as well as jQuery for the examples to work. Using the jQuery framwork any element with a class of vtip will have it’s title attribute turned into a sleek, customizable tooltip without the klunk and loading time of a large tooltip script. Version 2 introduces a minified version meaning the entire script is now 44% smaller.
