jQuery Code Expander

There is a problem on the web. Displaying actual programming code takes away a lot of space of the webpage (especially the longer ones). You can split up the code in several parts, but that's really hard to read for programmers. You can leave it "as it is" and users would have to scroll a lot if they're not interested in the code itself. And scrollbars in code-examples - that's just horrible (and yes - that's what I have on this website).

I created a solution for this problem and call it the jQuery Code Expander. It does exactly what you think it does - Expand any code you want to place online using jQuery.

But, before you can expand anything, it has to be cropped. That's where the CSS kicks in. It's like a combination of using scrollbars and fully showing the code!

This script only changes those elements that needs to be expanded and doesn't touch those who don't. An additional overlay image is added, just to show the user that it can expand the code example. Check out the demo and read below what the secret of this technique is.

The Mac Skype App menu with CSS3 and jQuery

If you're a regular visitor of Marcofolio, you know I love to create (and share) some wicked Proof of Concepts (For example: the Polaroid photo viewer and the iPhone Contacts App). They are nothing more than showing some amazing potential of certain techniques.

Today, I wanted to transfer the amazing slick Skype (for Mac) layout to your own webbrowser. Not the full layout: Only the menu where all your friends are listed. For the nifty layout we're going to use CSS3 and for the extra functionality (ofcourse) jQuery.

The Mac Skype App menu with CSS3 and jQuery


  • Expanding and hiding the contact details.
  • Nifty layout using CSS3.
  • Extra info (behind each name that is not expanded) is added through jQuery.

Sadly, just like all other CSS3 examples placed here, not all browsers support this functionality. Only browsers that support the -webkit prefix (Safari and Chrome) and the latest version of Firefox (3.5 through the -moz prefix) are fully working. Other browsers will show the menu without the extra markup.

OK, here we go! Let's see how you can create one of these wicked Skype menu's yourself. The users listed in the demo are the friends of Marcofolio (same that are placed in the footer) with their Twitter profile picture and links.

Advanced keypress navigation with jQuery

A while ago, an article called "A fancy search suggestion" was placed here. Many people loved it and already used the search suggestion in their latest web project.

Still, readers gave some criticism about the script. According to Jape, Simon and others the script was missing one vital element which the Apple search does have: keypress navigation (keyboard accessibility). For that reason, I'm presenting you a way you can improve that script yourself using advanced keypress navigation with jQuery.

Advanced Keypress Navigation

Check out the demo so you can try it yourself: There is a simple menu displayed which reacts to the Up and Down arrows, as well as Enter (or Return) to follow the link.

The script is (a bit) advanced because of the extra functionality when the user combines the mouse hover and keypresses. Want to know how to create it yourself? Check out the source code or follow these steps in this tutorial.

jSlickmenu: A jQuery plugin for slick CSS3 menus

After releasing several jQuery scripts, I wanted to take the whole jQuery programming to another level. For that reason, I'm proud to release my first jQuery plugin for everyone to use.

The plugin called jSlickmenu, creates, well, slick menus with jQuery. Combined with some great CSS3 features likes rotation and shadows, this plugin can really lift up your design. It's fairly easy to use, highly customizable and pretty cool (and fun!) to see.


As usual, you can freely use and modify this script where you want and I hope it can be of use in your next (web)project.

Sadly, CSS3 and HTML5 aren't the standards (yet) these days (when will it ever be?). Since this demo is using CSS3, not all browsers will be able to show off the full effect. Because of this, it only works on Apples Safari and Google Chrome as they are the only browsers supporting the Transform and Box-Shadow property of CSS3 via the -webkit- prefix. Mozillas Firefox 3.5 is getting these properties too (with the -moz- prefix). So, for now, this is just for fun - Other browsers will display the menu, but (sadly) in a whole different way.

Demo jSlickmenu   Download jSlickmenu

The plugin has been made as extensible as possible, so you can also view a demo with advanced settings. Make sure you check out the video demo and how to use the plugin.

20+ Wicked Proof of Concepts for Better use of jQuery/CSS

As you might know, I really love proof of concepts (and experiments). Just showing to others that you can create that crazy idea is a very good thing. Both for you (you just showed that you actually can create is), but especially for others (that can probably use your idea in another, maybe more useful and better way). Since the sky is the limit with several webdesign techniques, programmers can get really creative and innovative

I created a roundup containing 20+ Wicked Proof of Concepts for Better use of jQuery/CSS, showing off some crazy experiments found on the web. Most of them are just really for fun or just beautiful to watch. They all don't have any real practical use (yet) and really seek some better use.

20+ Wicked Proof of Concepts for Better use of jQuery/CSS

Noura Yehia from the popular Noupe allowed me to place the article over at their website (Thanks Noura!). If you want to check out this amazing roundup, make sure you read the (guest)article on Noupe.

It was really fun putting this list together. Some of the techniques just show a nice effect and don't have any practical use. Other techniques are way more useful and have a lot more potential of actually using in webdesign/webdevelopment work these days. Always look for new opportunities using the language, technique or framework that you use.

Showing links while hovering using CSS

Links (or anchor tags) are really important in webdesign/development. With all default settings (Both in CSS and the webbrowser), a link does look pretty ugly: A blue, underlined text (and purple when you visited that website). I'm sure you've seen these colours before.

Luckily, CSS helps a lot. By changing the color, :hover and :visited you can easily make your links a little bit more fancy. Janko has written an excellent post how you can improve your links even more.

Here's a simple little CSS technique that could be really useful in your next webdesign/webdevelopment process when adding links to a HTML page. Too many links on a page can be really confusing. Some links are just more important than others: They're the one that really need the desired attention. Other links (that are more common, like links to your Twitter page or RSS feed) should not be so "special".

That's exactly what we're going to do today: Hide those unimportant links and unhide (show) them while hovering its parent. We'll achieve this using CSS.

Showing links while hovering using CSS

Achieving this technique isn't really hard and is more like a "small trick". That doesn't mean that it isn't useful: With this small piece of CSS, you can add a lot more rest to your website, since not so many links get loads of attention: Only when hovering the parent tag.

Internet Explorer 6 is a real game stopper when it comes to CSS. I'm also giving a neat little jQuery solution to make this nice technique cross-browser compatible.
