Sponsor Flip Wall With jQuery & CSS
Designing and coding a sponsors page is part of the developer’s life (at least the lucky developer’s life, if it is about a personal site of theirs). It, however, follows different rules than those for the other pages of the site.

Getting Buggy CSS Selectors to Work Cross-Browser via jQuery
Below I’ve prepared a simple table that describes a number of CSS selectors that are not cross-browser compatible, along with the jQuery syntax for each. The syntaxes are exactly the same as they would be in CSS, save for the jQuery wrapper (just remove $() and the quotes to get the CSS syntax), so using these selectors in jQuery will provide somewhat of a practice ground to prepare you for when they’re fully supported by all commonly-used browsers.

How to show/hide a hidden input form field using jQuery
This past week I was working on a project at work which included building a request form with multiple fields. It was a rather large form that included a dropdown list with an ‘other’ option. I wanted to allow users to select the ‘other’ option which then would show an input field so they can enter a specific description of what that ‘other’ item is. I didn’t want to clutter the form by displaying that additional field by default so I used a little jQuery, thus displaying it dynamically and only when needed.
A Better jQuery In-Field Label Plugin
This is a pretty nice effect, and it can really help to save space on forms.

For more information on how to do this see the instructions from Google.
