I have updated to newer, modern technologies like HTML5, CSS3 and PDO, to handle the database. jQuery and jQuery UI have been updated to the latest versions with a few new features and the odd tweak here and there.

Being a big fan of jQuery I have put together a selection of jQuery tutorials. Tutorials that range from simple tooltips to navigation menus and image galleries. Do you have any favourite tutorials or do you reach straight for the plugins? Please feel free to comment.
Here is a simple little snippet that uses jQuery to enable or disable text input boxes in forms using a checkbox. When disabling the text boxes it prompts you to confirm it so that you don’t accidentally delete your data. This might be useful for forms elements that need to be enabled or disabled when a certain checkbox is checked like in a options page. The code itself is quite self explanatory but please feel free to ask if you are having any problems. This script has now been included in wow playground with new and updated features.
