[WSG] Flight Centre looking for talented front end developers to start immediately

2010-12-22 Thread Ryan Blunden
Hi everyone,

Flight Centre are currently seeking full-time front end developers to start
immediately. This is an excellent opportunity for the right applicants to
get experience in a global ecommerce environment and enterprise content
management systems. Salary will be negotiated based on skills and experience
and you must be able to work full-time at our Brisbane head office.

Flight Centre is a global company that encompasses many other travel brands
(Escape Travel, Travel Associates, Cruiseabout and others) and we are in the
process of rolling out our new travel product architecture across our
national and international sites. There will be a mix of both maintenance
work for existing sites and project work building new sites.

We’re after people who have:

   - At least 3 years commercial web development experience,
   - solid JavaScript skills (design patterns, Crockford, the good parts
   etc),
   - experience with jQuery and jQuery UI,
   - a passion for front end development best practices (web standards,
   progressive enhancement, accessibility),
   - a great attitude, and enjoy working in an open plan team environment,
   - a desire to see continuous innovation and improvement in the work they
   do.

Experience with functional testing platforms, unit testing and other
JavaScript frameworks (e.g. ExtJS) would be an advantage.

We have a great and talented bunch of web developers and the working
environment at Flight Centre really is fantastic!

If you want to find out more or would like to submit your resume for
consideration, please email me at ryan.blun...@flightcentre.com.au. Ensure
your resume highlights your front end development experience (e.g.
JavaScript you have written) and has a list of sites you’ve worked on
recently.

Hope you all have a great festive season!

Cheers,
Ryan

RE: [WSG] Hi all, need some help with a peekaboo bug in IE - SOLVED

2005-12-31 Thread Ryan Blunden
And of course, you would put any IE specific hacks such as the Holly Hack in
an 'ie-hacks' style sheet that would be included in your pages via IE
conditional comments.

See http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2005/10/12/480242.aspx for more info.

G'day Barrie,

I think what you need here is called the Holly Hack.  It fixes ul, li
problems that IE mucks up.  CSS for my sites where I use uls include:-

/* Fix IE. Hide from IE Mac \*/
* html #navbar ul li { float: left; }
* html #navbar ul li a { height: 1%; }
/* End */

I am making a site for IE6+ and am really stuck over an IE bug.

http://joomlashack.compassdesigns.net/js_jshack06v2/index1.html

Some strange bug is occurring in IE6, the left column bounces all over. 
It seems to be related to the peekaboo bug and you can see it when you 
mouse over the links to the left column in the main menu. Refresh the 
page in IE so see the bug again.

Also, if you click on the blog link
http://joomlashack.compassdesigns.net/js_jshack06v2/index1.html
you get a two column layout. For some reason the left column decides it 
wants to be in a different place.

The solutions I know of involve position:relative and height:1% and 
line-height:1.2. I have tried all three of these but not had anything work.

Apologies in advance for not making a page that isolated the bug better.
This is CMS output and I found this bug late in the production cycle...

Cheers

RE: [WSG] CSS Driven?

2005-12-13 Thread Ryan Blunden
I've found this particular topic so interesting, as I've gotten an insight
into the different approaches people take towards building standards based
designs or should I say, CSS driven designs.

As we all know, there is not one perfect, fully robust, all conquering 100%
correct way to design any conceivable web interface for a client or user,
and I think this is what a few people have alluded to in their posts, albeit
they are saying it in different ways. So without a perfect solution being
present, you're left to find the best solution you can, under your often
unique set of circumstances.

I'd like to think everyone on this list understands the holistic nature of
designing with web standards, understanding why the effort is worth it, but
also realising that the ideals of designing with web standards must always
be taken with a good deal of common sense (and humour, cheers Russ). There
are so many factors to consider when designing an interface and personally,
that's what I love about this work, it's never boring and always
challenging.

As developers, all we can ever hope for is to do the best job we can with
the knowledge we have at the time, delivering the best solution possible for
the client and of course, the end user. If everyone who has posted different
arguments is doing the best they can, then I say well done and good stuff!

RE: [WSG] Page Check: www.qm-consulting.co.uk/test/indextest

2005-11-04 Thread Ryan Blunden



Hi Richard,

Your content is indeed usable, accessible, semantic and 
valid,but if I was a potential client of yours, I wouldn't be saying, 
'Wow, that site looks great, I hope my site will look like that'. I'm not trying 
to put you down, I'm simply giving you my 
honestopinion.

Now maybe I'm completely out of touch and maybe all our 
sites should look like Jacob Neilson's but from my experience, sites need to be 
aesthetically pleasing as well as accessible and CSS and DOM scripting gives us 
more than enough power to do both. Perhaps you could sit down with a graphic 
designer to work more visual elements into your site and improve the overall 
look and feel? I think it would be worthwhile.

Also, what is the business case for needing the W3C badges, 
really?

Best Regards,
Ryan

Hey Andy,

Nice looking site, simple, clean, well laid out and easy to read, good
stuff. 

 That's very odd. Anybody got any idea why the CSS validator should be
throwing up an error on:

 line-height: 1;

 but is happy with
 
 line-height: 1.0;

 ?

 Looks like a bug in the validator to me.

I'd say so, but wouldn't the error have more to do with the fact that the
value of line-height needs a unit of reference (px, % or em)?

Actually, using a unit for line-height can get you into trouble:

RE: [WSG] two column

2005-09-17 Thread Ryan Blunden
Hi JoAn,

WSG member Andrew Krespanis put together an excellent presentation on a
3-column content source ordered layout at
http://www.leftjustified.net/site-in-an-hour/ with the actual site at
http://www.leftjustified.net/site-in-an-hour/site/.
 
I realise that you're after a two column layout and that is the beauty of
Andrew's design, it couldn't be easier to convert it two a 2 column layout. 
 
Here's a quick and dirty guide:
 
 - Remove the column #right in the HTML source code (was the right column)
 - In the default.css style sheet, change the percentage of #sub to 99% to
fill the container width (#outer)
 - In the default.css style sheet, Change the width of #center to fill the
width of #sub (the container of the two columns)
 
Presto, a rock solid two column layout.
 
I imagine you'll want to do some tweaking to the above and both the CSS and
HTML is well documented in terms of how the design works.
 
Note from Andrew: Get rid of the ie7 script that is included as it has been
known to cause IE to crash. It's only there for max. and min width support,
which you won't be needing if you're making a fixed width design.
 
Best of luck,
Ryan Blunden

Hi! I'm new to the list and to CSS. I really need a two column
source-ordered CSS layout so that the left column can be used for navigation
and the 2nd column would be for content. I suppose I'd need about 160px for
the left nav and the balance for the content. But I'd like the content
source to show first in the source code. Plus I'll need the header and the
footer. I've searched and searched but can only find the 3 column
source-ordered layout and can't figure out how to redo it to two column.
 
Would you help me out please? Thanks in advance! JoAn

Although some may not agree with this method because of the need for

 as the one on the home page.

Hi Rachel,

We observed the same problem in my web class. I have reason to believe that
this only happens on XHTML documents. At least, one document I had coded as
HTML 4 strict did not have this problem.

This may not be a viable solution for you, but you may like to give it a
try. Seems to be an IE6 on Win XP SP2 problem only. Again, I may be wrong.
Needs testing.

BTW - IE did not exactly crash for us - it simply locked up.

Cordially,
David

RE: [WSG] Randomly load images into the background-image selector...

Hey Andrew,

I'd like to see a script that does that! Have fun digging.

Regards,
Ryan

Aaaah, I over thought the situation -- I thought you wanted to *fade*
between the images, not just choose one at random...

Here you go :)

html
head
script
function randomBG(targetObjID) {
var obj, imgs, randNum;
obj = document.getElementById(targetObjID);
imgs = new Array();
imgs.push( 'foo.jpg');
imgs.push( 'bar.jpg');
imgs.push( 'w007.png');
randNum = Math.random() * (imgs.length - 1);
randNum = Math.round(randNum);
obj.style.backgroundImage = imgs[randNum];

// Uncomment followning line to test
//alert(imgs[randNum]);
}

window.onload = function() { randomBG('swapMe'); }; /script /head

body
div id=swapMe
Test div
/div
/body
/html

Valid xhtml1.1... NOT! ;) (at least the script is application/xhtml+xml
friendly)

The next step for this script would be to adapt it to OOD, thereby allowing
other scripts to add to the imgs array without needing to resort to global
var's.

I'm 90% sure I've got a script at home that does the above, but fades
between the remaining  images after choosing the initila one at random I
say 90% sure because I remember needing that functionality for a client site
but I may have ended up using an img element due to problems with Opera 
7.5 and Safari  1.1

If you're interested in that one, respond and I'll go digging tonight.

Cheers,
Andrew.
