Responsive design frameworks and how we should see them – Foundation vs Bootstrap

Well a couple of months ago my question was Foundation Zurb vs Twitter Boorstrap. Now my reply to this question is just anyone. I was very anxious which one to use, which one will help me build my project easier and of course which one is more flexible to custom designs as we don’t use templates or other ready made designs. In Stereotropism we build custom hand crafted designs for our customers. It was a headache for me and I made a good research reading tons of articles and suggestions from web gurus. Well if you want a short and quick answer then go for any of these two or another one like Gumby, Skeleton etc.

Navigation menu align centered using pure CSS rule width fit-content and IE hack

Working at the moment on a responsive template for a new webiste coming live at thε end of Μαυ. All I need is a navigation list aligned centered which can work work fine with responsive framework Foundation zurb. The standard inline-list that foundation gives you cannot stay aligned centered which is quite common for many designs. Maybe they’ll add this functionality later on.

Cross-domain user tracking with google analytics and _link redirect problem

I was working on a cross-domain website which needs to track our users with Google analytics code. The code to do that is easy and standard and can be found on the Google analytics dev guide.

Css sprites and problems you may face

Hello, working during the last couple of days. I did some speed improvements in my latest work. I always try to optimize my code, use advanced cache techniques that Umbraco offers and many other things (recently I am following the html5 boilerplate standards). Don’t forget speed is the best SEO technique, that’s all Google people say and that’s so normal if you just think about it.

ie8 crashes due to mshtml.dll – ie8 bug with addthis plugin

It’s been along time since I post something. I promise to be more active from now on. Working a lot the last few months I got a couple of things that need to share and will do from time to time. There is one weird thing I noticed to a website just finished, a couple of users were complaining that the website stopped working in IE8 and make their browser always crashing, trying to restore the tab and crashing again etc.

An alternative to lazy loader using the jquery load method for external images

Well I was googling again and again looking for a jquery lazy loader. Unfortunately there is nothing out there. Just the old fashion script which actually doesn’t work properly in modern browsers as Mika says on his website. Well I had some photo galleries which have from 20 to even 60 images to load. That is a really big problem for the end user as well as for Google (SEO thinking). As you already know Google pays attention at the time a webpage needs to be loaded. That’s actually the reason that Google added the track page load time parameter to his latest additions in Google analytics script.

Hide You Tube, Vimeo videos with CSS and jQuery, IE bug

Hello, lastly I was working as a member of Stereotropism team on a new project which will be on air sometime within September. I can only give the name of it, “Brand Father”. I will do post the link once the site goes live (here you go it’s live now www.brandfather.gr). So I was working on a media gallery which actually is on the article detailed page. The concept is to have as many videos (either you tube or vimeo iframes) plus a bunch of images under the same media gallery.
