Forms that look great

september 22, 2009

It has always been a hazzle to make forms that look like the designers want to. There are never time to replace them with new nice graphical look with javascript, so .. they look as they look.

Now, my colleague at work discovered this:


I love whenpeople share their code::)


Snap shots – exiting but with ads.

Link to snap shot 

Link to overwiev page – this is what it looks like

Snap shot provides layers that look like speech bubbles when you hover an external link (place your mouse over a link) with a preview of the website. You can also use it for explanation of words to explain it in wikis, or put a link to youtube movies and play the movie directly  in the ”speech bubble”.

The best is that you can get google maps inside the bubbles. Just ad a link to the adress.

Easy to use – put a link to a javascript in the header of your website. And done.
You can also decide what kind of links that will have have snap shots. For example only external links, internal links, certain domains and so on.

So what is the disadvantage.. of course there are always something, when it´s free and fantastic…

Well, you have to show ads inside the bubble if a company has bought ads that is relevant to the content that you are showing…

Only to educational and governmental  institutions has exemptions  from showing ads..
