How To Code a Hidden Author Bio Display using jQuery

I was browsing through websites one day and came across one really interesting feature. Jennifer Perrin has a small blog on her website which uses a fixed top navbar. In the center you’ll find a profile avatar photo which displays her full author bio(triggered by hover). This is a really interesting feature and I’ve set out to replicate the idea using jQuery.

So in this tutorial I want to demonstrate how we can build a very simple HTML5 webpage recreating a full author bio display. The entire bio container is hidden until the user hovers over the avatar photo. Take a peek at my live demo to see what it should look like:

How To Design Custom Pricing Plan Tables with HTML5 and CSS3

Any company selling a service with payment plans usually breaks up the structure into different packages. Smaller packages will cost less but also provide fewer features. Pricing tables are the perfect UI component to display these packages in an easy-to-compare design.

For this tutorial I want to demonstrate how we can create pricing tables with just a bit of HTML5 and CSS3. Despite the name, I haven’t actually used any <table> elements within the design. You might feel these are easier but they also depend on a rigid formulaic structure. Pricing tables can have many facets including service terms, plan details, pricing details, and of course the purchase/signup button.

How To Code an Image Zoom Hover Display with jQuery

For typical e-commerce websites you will often notice a detailed photo display when hovering an image. The zoom effect helps prospective buyers to see more of the product when deciding if it’s worth purchasing. This familiar image zoom effect can be applied to many other websites just to provide a better user experience.

In this tutorial I want to introduce a very simple jQuery plugin called EasyZoom. It’s all free and open source to download right from Github. The tool makes it super easy to create your own image zoom panel, which can appear on mouseover or be tied onto another event handler. Check out my live sample demo to get an idea of the final product.

Building a Single-Page Dynamic Website using AnimateScroll.js

Sliding parallax websites incorporate animation with page sections to build a very unique experience. Over the past few years I have found a large number of parallax designs wrapped into a single webpage. Notably this parallax interface may be hard-coded from scratch, but there are lots of free open source plugins to do the job quicker.

In this tutorial I want to demonstrate how we can use AnimateScroll to build a sliding single-page website layout. I’ve kept inner page content to a minimum so we can see exactly how the CSS structure works with the animations. Keep in mind this definitely isn’t a tough concept to implement. But you should have an understanding of page hierarchy and CSS positioning or it gets confusing fast. Check out my live demo example to see exactly what we are making.
