SQL 30 April 2012

Got some problems with sorting in wordpress again, posting a short solution.

Web 24 April 2012

I saw on stack overflow today that you could make your own designed share button to Google + just as you can do to Twitter, Facebook and other social websites.

The url is as follows:
https://plus.google.com/share?url=http://erik.landvall.se

        1px    /* y-axis */
        1px    /* x-axis */
        1px    /* blur   */
        #999;  /* color  */
}

The values for blur and color is not necessary to specify.

Javascript 6 April 2012

If we want to present code on a webpage then we have some different tools that can help us by coloring the code according to the syntax. The options we have is basically one of two things, server or client-based. I have chosen to use a client based script because I don’t want to “pollute” the outputted html code.

Prettify is a javascript which is released under the license Apache License 2.0. The code can be downloaded at Google code. I’ve chosen to use this script over other equivalents because I feel it’s more flexible, stable and faster.
