!JoomlaComment is one of the leading free commenting components for Joomla!. I've been using the component since the beginning of my website.
As I said before, !JoomlaComment isn't perfect (yet). It's still missing some features that make others (Like JomComment) more attractive, like the support for trackback. On the other hand, !JoomlaComment does allow threaded / nested comments which is a big positive point.
Another downside of the component is the lack of using the Akismet service. Akismet (which is often used together with WordPress) is a service that helps you preventing others of placing automated spam messages in your comments. !JoomlaComments current solution for preventing spam messages was by enabling CAPTCHA: A technique not many users like.
We're now going to disable the CAPTCHA and enable Akismet support in !JoomlaComment. How? By "hacking" in the !JoomlaComment core.
So let's edit the PHP code from !JoomlaComment and add Akismet support! This tutorial is written for the latest release of !JoomlaComment at this moment: 3.26.

The iPhone: Everybody knows what it is, many people "played around" with the gadget and most people love it. I also own one of these amazing smartphones, and the looks of the software is really, really sleek and innovative (Just like we're used from Apple).
I wanted to transfer (some) of these amazing designs to a webpage to re-create the same look and feel for webbrowsers. Today, I'm going to show you how to create The iPhone unlock screen in xHTML, CSS and jQuery.
OK, maybe not fully the "feeling" (look and feel) from the iPhone, since I can't make any webbrowser react to placing your finger on the screen, but your mouse will do the trick.
- XHTML and CSS valid.
- "Timer" displays the current time (Just like the iPhone).
- "Date" displays the current date (Just like the iPhone).
- Pretty sleek interface, including see-through elements (Just like the iPhone).
- Changeable background.
- Tested and working on Firefox 3, Internet Explorer 7 and Safari 3.
- The "slider" doesn't slide back (what the iPhone does).
- The "unlock animation" isn't exactly the same as the iPhone.
- Doesn't work on an actual iPhone.
Other than those minor issues, it works as expected. I'm planning to make some more of these "iPhone style" webpages, so subscribe to the feed if you want to keep updated. Want to know how I created it? Check it out.

A while ago, I placed an article called building a blog with CakePHP - Part 1: Getting started. The tutorial gave you a good start in the world of CakePHP, just to learn the basics of the framework.
Now we're improving the blog by adding some functionality. We'll make it a little bit more search engine friendly and we're going to build an admin panel to add new articles.
What we did last time
- Creating the database
- Clearing CakePHP errors
- Creating the "Blog" model
- Data from controller to view
- Altering the layout & styling with CSS
Make sure you've read the previous article before starting with this one if you want to learn the framework. You can also try viewing the source code of part 2 if you want to show your chest hair.
There we go! Strap on your cooks hat; We're going to bake some delicious Blog-cake.

As you might have noticed, I've been mentioning the Twitter service already a couple of times here. I've created a webpage that you can use to display your own Twitter updates and showed that Twitter can be great for asking quick questions to other Tweeters. You could follow me to get the latest updates too.
Anyway, the goal for article isn't promoting how great and addicting Twitter is. I went through the Twitter API to create another great and probably very useful Twitter application. I want to present to you the Mass Twitter Action & Retrieve Script.
What does it do? The mass Twitter script allows you to mass follow, defollow or retrieve friends or followers from Twitter. This can be useful for several reasons, like retrieving all your followers and automatically follow them back at once. Or de-friend a couple of people you follow because they're only spamming. I'm sure you could think about more reasons where you can implement this script.
Once again, I'm not going to explain the code. If you want to make adjustments to it, feel free to do so.

A while ago, I wrote an article called a Flash image viewer by reading directory contents. Jon Diamond found my article and used it to create a dynamic Flash logo scroller for ImageWorks Studio. You can view the scroller on the right side of the page.
Jon send me a mail, thanking me for the tutorial and included the sources files how he created the scroller. He approved to put the files on Marcofolio.net to let the users download and use it.
When I received the source files, I did want to make a minor change to the concept: The logo's should be click-able and be linked to a site. That's why I got into the code (PHP and AS), made the changes and now put it available. It's still fully dynamic: If you add a logo (or other kind of image), to a directory, it'll automatically be displayed in the scroller and is linked to a website.
I'm not going into the technical details this time. You can view the actionscript code in the FLA file and explanation of the code (PHP and AS) can be read in the other article. I'll explain some of the (very easy) configurations.
