I've been writing more articles for Community MX lately, but have been lax about linking to them. The most recent was on creating text masks for ColdFusion, utilizing a simple technique of replacement fields for things like email texts, letters, or invoices. Last week I had an article showing a simple error handler that I use in PHP applications. Prompted by a question on the Adobe forums, I wrote one on creating a master/detail pageset on one page using Dreamweaver and my own Ajax code. Before that, there was a short series on doing very simple database searches:
- Creating a Simple Database Web Search - Part 2: ColdFusion
- Creating a Simple Database Web Search - Part 2: PHP
- Create a Simple Database Web Search - Part 1
This was in response to users who like my Dynamic Search extension, but don't need the keyword functionality. The first part shows how to do a simple search using "filters" in Dreamweaver. The second part (separated for PHP and ColdFusion) shows how to hand-code a few modifications to allow for multiple parameters.
There were also 3 articles on building Horizontal Loopers manually using Dreamweaver tools -- only using CSS instead of tables. Those articles are broken down for ASP, PHP, and ColdFusion as well. The ASP article came out a few weeks ago, at the request of one of my customers:
- Creating a Table-less Horizontal Looper in ColdFusion
- Creating a Table-less Horizontal Looper in PHP
- Creating a Table-less Horizontal Looper in ASP
As always, articles at Community MX are free for members, and a very small fee for non-members. I'm always looking for ideas for new articles, so if there is something you want to see use the contact form to make suggestions. Thanks!
