Full Page Background

Want to get that image to stretch to every edge of the browser window? Chris Couyier at CSS-Tricks came up with the answer:

html {
background: url(images/bg.jpg) no-repeat
center center fixed;
-webkit-background-size: cover;
-moz-background-size: cover;
-o-background-size: cover;
background-size: cover;

Fixed Footer

Okay, so you're making you're web page and now you want to extend the content area all the way down the page. So what happens to the Footer? Well, THEN you have to make the Footer hug the bottom of the page. How do you do this? There are a few tricks, but I have chosen this one, and then made it work as an example. First here is the code snippet from CSS-Tricks:

#footer {

/* IE 6 */
* html #footer {
top:expression((0-(footer.offsetHeight)+(document.documentElement.clientHeight ? document.documentElement.clientHeight : document.body.clientHeight)+(ignoreMe = document.documentElement.scrollTop ? document.documentElement.scrollTop : document.body.scrollTop))+'px');

Online Form builders

Take a look at these two online form builders. You want a form that visitors can fill in on their contact page? And then email you? Just use one of these online form builders, and either copy and paste the code into your own HTML page, or simply insert a link. They are pretty easy, just drag-and-drop modules, and if you get stuck, you can search for how-to video tutorials on Youtube. Go get!

Jotform is tried and trusted, and it's free, unlimited forms. Wuform is new and groovy, but only three free forms. But hey, you won't use more than three, right?

Inspirational websites! (for the code)
