What we want Chris to screencast on

  • # March 7, 2012 at 9:42 am

    When Chris gets around to making screencasts, let’s help him choose by suggesting things we wish to learn more about!

    I wish to see something on Sound Manager 2, although he’s already done embedding audio.

    Also I want to learn about Drupal and Joomla, although I’m pretty sure Chris is as clueless about them as I am, so that would be to no use.

    @Hompimpa What about colours? Exactly what is it you need to learn?

    @knittingfrenzy I’d rather Chris did screencasts on CSS issues rather than HTML/CMS/Audio although anything is nice. I’ve found decent courses on Drupal at Lynda.com…heck it’s how I’m learning it now.

    Can I just express the joy I felt inside when I saw the word “colours” spelt properly :)

    # March 7, 2012 at 12:09 pm

    Colors

    ಠ_ಠ

    # March 7, 2012 at 12:10 pm

    same, all my life I’ve spelled colours, then I learned to code and the colors are everywhere

    Maybe a screencast on styling social buttons :)

    # March 7, 2012 at 12:31 pm

    Do you guys actually pronounce the extra “u” in colours? Or is it like how the British can’t say “aluminum” correctly :)

    I would love to see some screencasts on manipulating elements within other elements on hover or click. An example of this are the button effects on Wufoo.com – I’d like to dig more into that and see how far we can take it.

    # March 7, 2012 at 12:42 pm

    I’d like to see more on designing wordpress themes.

    P.S. It’s spelled c-o-l-o-r-s. :)

    # March 7, 2012 at 1:12 pm

    I’m not gonna start a flamewar here but its pronounces al-ew-min-ee-əm and yeah we pronounce the u, I’m not British BTW

    lol – you crazy Americans with your crazy ideas.

    (I am British…)

    It’s ‘colours’ in Canada as well, but I’ve switched to using ‘colors’.

    But this thread is a good idea, I’m sure a little inspiration for Chris might help. What would I want to see… I’m not sure!

    # March 7, 2012 at 4:35 pm

    I would like to see how to make HTML and CSS appear as the code, not the markup on a text page (like with the <pre><code></code></pre>

    Colours, Aluminium, Pyjamas, … we invented the language (we don’t pronounce the “u” actually).

    # March 7, 2012 at 5:45 pm

    $wpdb

    Or connecting to other DBs/tables in general

    On the topic of ‘colours’, the biggest issue I have with CSS: spelling centre as center. ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!

    @JoshWhite We (British English speakers, I’m Australian) spell it aluminium, hence the pronunciation difference.

    Chris, please do a screencast on getting your site to the top of the Google rankings. I joke, I joke!

    Castle or castle? Tomato or tomato?

    But, Josh! Don’t forget about us Canadians!

    Except in Canadian English, there is no difference in meaning between center and centre. Center is the preferred spelling in American English, and centre is preferred outside North America. In Canadian English, centre is the noun meaning a gathering place, while center is (1) a noun meaning the middle, and (2) a verb meaning to place at the center.
