Dreamweaver CS4 to CS6 Site Definitions through Registry Edit

I started an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription today, and it being Sunday, I had chattering kids and a grumbling husband distracting me all day. So, when I decided to uninstall all my Adobe CS4 programs all at once, I didn’t think things through. Oh sure, I saved my Photoshop brushes to a different place, but what about Dreamweaver site definitions? Oh. Nope. Totally forgot about them. There’s something about saving the login details for all your websites once and then forgetting about them entirely that makes Dreamweaver so convenient…

Magento: Nivo Slider Skipping Images, Nav Control Not Working

I had just implemented a Nivo Slider on a Magento store. I watched the slider perform, and although I saw the nav control said it was going on to the next slide, the slider image hadn’t changed. Clicking on the arrows didn’t work, while the nav control sometimes worked, sometimes not. Was it an issue of z-index? Was it an issue of jQuery 1.8+ versus jQuery 1.9? Whenever I viewed the slider in Firefox, Firebug experienced an error that made Firefox stuck in an error loop, so I had to use Chrome.

I’ve been working on a client’s new Zen Cart shop. I originally wanted to use Magento, but certain complications needed something that was lightweight on the server. Since I had already built all the products in a test install of Magento, I installed and used a product importer in Zen Cart.

After using this importer, all of my products had blank meta titles. Apparently, when you have blank meta titles, the URL shows up instead as the tab name or window name. Of course, this isn’t good at all.

Highlight Text with jQuery

Do you want a line of text to stand out with animated effects, but don’t want to open up Photoshop to create an animated GIF? Highlight text easily with the Art Text Light plugin.

Most jQuery text animation effects only occur when you hover over text, or some require customization to get the animation to loop continuously upon load. This one loops automatically, requiring little to no customization. All you really need to do is load the script into your page and initialize the script with your custom parameters if needed.

Business card design templates are great for designers who just don’t have the time to create their own designs. When looking for a great business card design, you want something that will stand out but still convey what you do and what your strengths are.

This is the easiest tutorial I’ve found that shows you how to enqueue scripts properly in WordPress. Forget 2-year-old blog posts about de-registering WordPress’s jQuery script and re-registering it with the Google version (really? I found 2 of those at least). This tells you how to hook your function into WordPress’s enqueue function, and how to register and enqueue the scripts you need so that they cascade properly.

WPMU DEV’s Appointments + is a great scheduling plugin for WordPress. Though this plugin is not specifically intended for booking reservations (WPMU DEV is developing a plugin specific for booking), this does just fine with a few customizations.

The upcoming New Year got me thinking — it’s the perfect time to do some last-minute shopping for office supplies! After all, 2012 is almost over and, if you have your own business or freelance as I do, you can deduct your business expenses during tax season.

While some of these office supplies and equipment suggestions would work for a web designer’s home office, others are just plain cool and can be used for any workplace.

Magento stores are powerful, but sometimes difficult to configure when you want something to happen dynamically. Once you learn more about Magento’s templates, XML, and Magento’s CMS syntax, displaying dynamic product information gets easier.
