PiciScan Web Design Blog RSS Feed

Posted on: Thursday, 9 April 2015

Refresh this page. Go on. It'll feel good. Honest!

Done it? Notice anything ... different? No? You might not have done. On a mobile, you'll only notice the change in the footer, but on a desktop, you'll see the picture advertising one of our scanning services change and the brief testimonial alter as well.

This blog post is going to be very brief, because I didn't make this magic happen by myself. I've got the guys over at PHP Junkyard to thank for that. They can explain how you can make use of their wonderful random text generator, RanTex, far better than I can.

But before you go! What they don't tell you is that, if you can write it in html, you can include it in RanTex. So, that means images can be referenced, javascript can (probably) be executed, and php scripts loaded up.

I'm happy to help anyone who, having downloaded this wonderful script on my recommendation, or if you happened across this post looking for help on it, but, really, they do explain it pretty well themselves. Just add a comment below and I'll get back to you as soon as I can!

Mark founded PiciScan in 2010, and sold it in October 2015 to Web By Numbers Ltd, who now employ him! He likes Star Wars, playing escape games and looking after his bonsai tree.

Posted: 24 March 2016

I first came across box-sizing: border-box when it cropped up in a temporary colleague's CSS. I found it pretty annoying when I picked up work that he'd started as it seemed to get in the way. This was because, as I said in a previous post on margin ...
