jqZoom is a jQuery plugin which enables images to be zoomed.

This is an easy-to-implement plugin which is very handy, specially, in e-commerce projects & galleries.

jQuery Image Zoom

How it works?

This jQuery zoom plugin simply requires that "jqzoom" class to be added to images other that including the JS file and calling the main function once. And that’s it.

You can also configure it to mention the width-height of the zoom div and its position.

WooThemes, which is the new face of "Premium News Themes" (, launched recently with some nice features.

They are a team of 4 well-known WordPress theme designers; Adii, Magnus Jepson, Mark Forrester and Elliot Jay Stocks who are about to rise the bar in premium themes market.

Premium WordPress Themes

Rather than the famous news theme "Premium News Theme" was offering, WooThemes currently offers 10 themes and officially promises to release at least 1 new theme every month.

A new feature; "WooThemes Club" can be a good address for users who like changing themes frequently as members of the club can download every theme (and the new themes released).

In my opinion, ProudFolio, a new WordPress theme created by Elliot Jay Stocks is very unique as it is totally targeted to designers & other creative people who wants to present their portfolio and have a blog at the same time.

And Vibrant CMS is again a new theme which is business-targeted & very elegant (this is also the base theme of WooThemes).

If you’re looking for quality WordPress themes with support, WooThemes is a powerful option for that.

P.S. This post is a review.

Tipmage is a JavaScript class for creating tooltips / notes over images similar to Facebook image tagging.

In order to create a tooltip, you simply double click any area on the image and the interface appears.

It works in 2 modes:

  • Normal: which only shows the tooltip when hovered.
  • Edit: which also allows you to edit the tooltip

Tipmage supports the use of special callback functions for editing of a tooltip (like Ajax calls to access a database) & the editing interface can be updated from a CSS file.

Copy & paste it to your browser and start editing that page.

Live search is a great way of improving usability, specially if you have a serious amount of data to search. No going back & further and your users can see the results as they type.

QuickSilver has a great interface which accepts abbreviations as the input like writing wrdprss rather than WordPress.

JavaScript Live Search

John Nunemaker had published a QuickSilver style Prototype live search and the ported it to jQuery.

John Resig (creator of jQuery) played with it more and re-ported it to jQuery (which seems to be the final version for now : ) ).
