µAudio Player

µAudio is a slim (450 Bytes!), fast plugin to create a flash mp3 player when mp3 links are clicked. In order to reduce clutter and file transfer, the links are unmodified until they are clicked, at which point a div with the player is faded in after the link. A second click on the link fades the player back out.


wp slimbox2 jquery wordpress plugin

The smallest Lightbox-like script available for the jQuery library, if you have a thumbnail you can click it and the full image version pops up.

    pretty nice themes. I find it strange taht you can buy a theme for $25 as I am a web designer who would charge around $1000 for a good website with smart qjuery features.

    I always feel like I am ripping people off even though I’m working at quite a small rate compared to most web developers.

    Ooh well, good post guys.

    I find that themes using jquery just load faster and look very smooth, I love them. There are two themes here that I like that I never seen before, the arras and sleektabs themes. Thanks for sharing these, I’ll definitely use them soon for my projects.

    Awesome post! Downloaded and will be using Arras on a new site. Already using the post ratings tool on a video site and it really seems to help engagement.
