We all know that creating forms can be an unpleasant, error-prone and time consuming process, especially when you are doing the coding my hand.
Skip all that tedious process with AJAX Contact Form Builder. It was created to improve the functionality of your website by offering an interactive user experience for your visitors that need to reach you. It’s very easy to use and can be setup on your website in minutes.

Greetings my fellow readers,
While using WordPress, I’ve seen a very cool effect when I either approved or deleted comments. When you click “Delete” it uses AJAX to call the PHP script that will perform the action as well as highlighting that row with a fading color change effect. If you are a web developer and need to implement a similar approach in your scripts (using AJAX with UI state effect) then this post is for you.
We’ll need jQuery and jQuery UI Effects (for the background fading) libraries for this.

After a long quiet sleep, the developers of well-known Preloaders.net have finally woken up. Couple of months ago they launched the second version of http://preloaders.net and released http://iconizer.net from beta having added dozens of new features and templates to both projects (including APNG support in the first one and a completely new search engine for the second project). But these two projects are not even in the middle of the developers’ plan. Right now they are developing 3 new projects and very recently launched a new generator – http://cssload.net
CSS load – first online CSS spinners and bars code generator with the given features and variety of templates. The aim of the project is to provide developers and designers with animations that indicate loading of AJAX and JQuery requests made with the means pure CSS (CSS3) and HTML. Right now there are 8 templates of different animation templates available, but there will be more in the nearest future.
The concept of generating the animations is very simple and alike with the Preloaders project. Just select your template in the left column, then set the coloring scheme, size and the speed of animation. All animations previews are generated automatically each time you change any parameter. Having acquired a desired preloader, click on the “Get code” button and you will be provided the code to copy.
The project right now is an alpha version with some little modifications pending. The main problem is that CSS3 animations are not yet supported by Internet Explorer and Opera web-browsers, but the project developers hope that very soon it will not be a problem anymore.

Developer by Finely Sliced, leanModal.js is a super simple plugin that works with your CSS.
Having just 780 bytes, this uber light plugin has a flexible width & height, it’s perfect for hidden page content, can run multiple instances on one page, is image free and great for things such as login, sign up and alerts panels.
This jQuery plugin comes with a few weaknesses though: it has no gallery, iframe or Ajax support; it has not been tested in IE6.
Built for all the short dialogs, alerts, panels and such associated with an app, that you may want to handle in a modal window. Designed to handle hidden content, and doesn’t apply any styles to the target element, other than for displaying and positioning.
