When HTML5 goes up

I have recently found a great online gallery of HTML5 web app designs. It has 19 (at the time of this post writing) well designed and free to use web app templates.

They are all responsive, look beautiful on desktop and mobile browsers and do support multiple screen resolutions.

What I most like about this web gallery is that the author has started in 2012 and has grown a lot with every new design he posted! He has also created a www front end framework skelJS which is the powering engine for all these HTML5 designs.

The most recent templates are really worth taking a look at and will for sure give you some inspirations on how to use HTML5 in web projects.

Some WordPress Gallery Features You Might Not Know About

The other day, I was playing around with the WordPress [

] shortcode, and came across the need to exclude an image that was attached to the page. The image I needed to exclude was kind of like a featured image, and I didn’t want it to appear again in the gallery itself. So, I searched for information about excluding images from the WordPress [

] shortcode, and came across the related WordPress Codex article.

While reading that article, I noticed a handful of features I’d never known about in that particular shortcode. After all, I always basically assumed that the options WordPress gives you when inserting a gallery were probably the only options that were available.

New Version of Gallery

For those of you that might have missed it, the folks that put together Gallery released a new version a few weeks ago. Gallery is a fantastic PHP-based, open-source, free application that allows you to easily create and manage photo galleries on your Web site.

The new feature list for Gallery 2.3 is fairly impressive. They seem to have put a lot of effort into improving the comment feature, the administration area and much more.

I upgraded one of my Gallery installations in a matter of just a few minutes, using their “pre-installer” script that automatically downloads, unzips and installs the software on your server. Whether you are upgrading an older installation or installing a whole new photo gallery, I would highly recommend using the pre-installer.

Gallery2 – A Very Nice Photo Management Application

I have been using and customizing a couple of Gallery2 installations at work and in my personal life. I have to say that I am extremely impressed at how advanced and powerful the application really is.

The installer is probably the easiest (besides WordPress) installation I’ve ever performed. All I had to do was download a small starter package, add a password and upload it to the correct directory. From there, the installer transferred all of the necessary files from Gallery’s server over to mine and gave me very explicit instructions on how to configure all of the settings.
