By Chongchen Saelee

Fiverr’s basic gigs charge at least $5. Their standard cut is 20%. So for every $5 basic gig you sell, they take 20% of $5, so you only get $4. That’s good and all when it’s already set up for you, but what about bigger projects that you have to use Fiverr’s Custom Offer Tool to set? Well, in order not to sell yourself short and get paid correctly, this is how you do it: (more…)

Custom Font Javascript + CSS Implementation

Copyright © 2011 By Chongchen Saelee

There’s only a handful of “websafe” fonts, a collection of fonts that any Internet user’s computer will most likely already have preloaded whether with their operating system or Internet browser. So when a webpage designer is feeling limited with his font selection, he either has to rasterize that custom font into an image or force the user to download the custom font. If the user has to download a custom font, it’s never a gaurantee that it will be compatible as there are many formats of fonts. Even with rasterized fonts as images, depending on how much text needs to be shown, the graphic might get really big and weigh down the downloading speed or drawing performance.

The most efficient method is probably to create a real font using a font editor and hope it works on the user’s end. But font editors cost money, and if you’re not a hardcore typographer, what’s the point of investing in it? So I’m going to attempt to create a “free” solution: implement a simple javascript font system based on a sprite sheet. This is a technique commonly used in game development and I’m sure others out there have done similar thing.

Customizing The WordPress Layout

Here’s a picture of a pretty lady to distract youse:

So upon further inspection of the WordPress default template layout, I found it to be incredibly object-oriented in design, which is a good thing. The people behind this content management system (CMS) blog are programmers but at the same time have proven their software can produce very beautiful presentation without looking too mechanical. But that’s not to say mechanical, or minimalistic, is necessarily undesirable (I don’t want to deal with the complexities of the guts).

Basically, the default components of a WordPress blog are:

  • header
  • content
  • sidebar
  • footer

And there’s a high probability that most web pages are designed like this, especially when there is navigation. A WordPress blog then becomes like a library card catalog (yikes, youngin’s won’t remember those) and visitors can easily access entries from past dates. Before CMS existed, most HTML designers were linking pages manually. I’ve found myself doing that to this day and it’s still a pain, especially when I want to post all sorts of junk simultaneously without having to worry about organization.

So far, I’ve been trying to really minimize the layout.
