Advanced jQuery background image slideshow

A couple of weeks ago, I received an e-mail from a guy named Patrick. He just visited the website from Philadelphia and wanted to know how to create the slideshow header that's on top of the page. Since I was also impressed by the effect, I took the time to recreate this effect myself. Our focus is the background image slideshow (including the text), not the other things (like the dropdown menu).

With the use of transparent PNG's, some HTML, pretty nifty CSS and jQuery, we can make this technique work. Read the rest of this article to learn how to create a beautiful advanced jQuery background image slideshow.

It features changing text and playback controls. When the animation doesn't seem smooth, the images might not be loaded. This script can perfectly be combined with an image preloading plugin to get rid of this effect. Tested and works on Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Opera. I've used images with a width of 1500px, just to cover most of the currently used screen resolutions.

Start up your HTML/CSS/jQuery editor and let's see how you can create this effect yourself! Of course, you can also download the source and dig through the code and learn from there. As always, comments are left on the source code to explain what it does.

jFancyTile: A jQuery tile shifting image viewer plugin

Previous week, colleague Willem and I were checking out the mosaic slideshow created by Martin. We were both impressed by his example, but wanted to take it to another level. We discussed on how we could add some features and how it should look like. Willem tranformed this idea to Silverlight and I created an easy to use jQuery plugin that does the same.

This jQuery plugin called jFancyTile is a tile shifting image viewer. It allows you to tranform any list with images to a beautiful tile shifting photo presenter.

Check out the demo to see the plugin live. It's very customizable to fit your own needs. Read the rest of this article to see how this plugin works "under the hood".

Take note this plugin is pretty CPU intense and works best when a low rowCount and columnCount is used on relatively small images. Experiment and use with caution. The Silverlight version from Willem doesn't have this problem.

How you can prevent an SQL injection

About the author:
The write up has been done by Joanna who works with WebHostingSearch and has been been part of web industry from quite some time now.

How you can prevent an SQL injection

An SQL Injection (also known as "Failure to Preserve SQL Query Structure") is one of the most common and most dangerous security issues. SQL injections are dangerous because they are a door wide open to hackers to enter your system through your Web interface and to do whatever they please - i.e. delete tables, modify databases, even get hold of your corporate network. SQL injections are a programming error and they have nothing to do with your web site hosting provider. So, if you have been searching for a secure JSP hosting, PHP hosting or any other type of web hosting packages, you need to know that prevention of an SQL injection is not a responsibility of your web site hosting provider but of your web developers.
