This tutorial will show you how to use jQuery to allow as list (UL) to be reordered and will also make an AJAX call to a PHP file that will update the database when an item is dropped.

The items are stored in a database with a field called display_order. When the report is generated we simply order by that field.
So you have a basic HTML site with 100 pages, what happens when you want to change the title tag? Well, if you aren’t using PHP includes, you will have to update each file.

This tutorial will show you how to create a hidden Div and display it with the click of a link. There are a few reasons you may want to hide a Div in a website design. You may want to create a drop down type menu or a box that will show more information when you click a link. Another reason would be for SEO purposes. In theory hiding information in a Div is not against Google’s rules. As long as the user can still see the content when clicking a button you are not displaying different information to the user than you are to the search engine.
