Collection of CSS techniques

Monday, June 11th, 2018 by Servage
I've stumbled over a great list of cool CSS techniques I think could be useful some web developers: "CSS3 is taking web development and web design to a higher level. In this article, I have compiled examples of amazing CSS3 techniques that will probably become very popular when CSS3 will be fully supported by most browsers." Color animate any shape with CSS3 and a PNG Let’s start this compilation with an interesting effect created using only CSS3: A png image with a changing background. The background is using CSS3 transitions. Not the kind of effect you’ll put on your website, but definitely an interesting demo of what CSS3 can do.

GeoIP Security

Sunday, April 8th, 2018 by Servage
geoip_wildcardsThe Servage  GeoIP Security supports the use of wildcards to allow IP ranges in addition to specific IPs. This means you can allow entire blocks of IP addresses with one setting, instead of having to add each address individually. What does the GeoIP Security feature do? It enables you to restrict access to login to your Servage account based on the user's country or IP address. You find it in the control panel at "Your Account > GeoIP Login Security".

Advanced web-development with Javascript – Part 2

Monday, October 21st, 2013 by Servage
Data types The values we assign to variables fall under a few distinct data types. Undefined The simplest of these data types is likely “undefined.” If we declare a variable by giving it a name but no value, that variable contains a value of “undefined.” var foo; alert(foo); // This will open a dialog containing "undefined". Odds are you won’t find a lot of use for this right away, but it’s worth knowing for the sake of troubleshooting some of the errors you’re likely to encounter early on in your JavaScript career. If a variable has a value of “undefined” when it shouldn’t, you may want to double-check that it has been declared correctly or that ...

Use Servage mailing lists with AJAX

Friday, February 15th, 2013 by Servage
mailing_list_apiWe have received a few requests about the mailing list API. There has especially been interest in how to integrate the mailing list to an existing website without going through any Servage subscribe/unsubscribe pages. Therefore I have created a very simple sample AJAX integration example, and thought it would be interesting for some of your as well. You need to include the jQuery library, and please be aware that the email validation is very basic, and please also note that most browsers will not allow the API call because it goes outside the scope of your domain/URL (i.e. it tries to connect to Servage's domain, instead of yours). In such cases ...

Using sessions in PHP

Thursday, January 17th, 2013 by Servage
There are two ways how you can store data associated with a given visitor. You can use cookies on the client or sessions on the server. In this article I will present you with the basic concepts of sessions usage in PHP. First of all, it works so that PHP stores a cookie on the client side with a session ID. This session ID is then used to identify and retrieve a session stored on the server. So you can actually store secret information in the session and be sure it isn't manipulated or seen by the user - unlike cookies which are viewable by the browser. Start the session Before you ...
