Need Some Outstanding Developers to Help With New Secret Category

In early May, ThemeForest will be launching a brand new category that will appeal more to developers than designers – at least from an authoring stand-point. To help seed this new category, we’re in need of around five outstanding developers to help us out. If you’re creative and have the chops, email sitemanager@themeforest to discuss the details and compensation.

* Note – to qualify for this initial seed content, you really need to know your stuff. When you contact us, please include either samples of your work, or your resume. Otherwise, your email will unfortunately be deleted. I’m looking forward to hearing from some of you!

Diving into PHP: Day 14

It’s been a while, but we’re back with Day 14 of our “Diving into PHP” series. Today, we’ll begin researching OOP techniques. We’ll start with a basic overview of classes and functions, and will then move into some more real-world and complicated examples in future tutorials.


Ask JW: Decoding Self-Invoking Anonymous Functions

Between Nettuts+ and ThemeForest,
I receive dozens of question emails each week. Although I try my best, I simply don’t have the time to research the answer to each one. Considering this, I’ve decided to sporadically post “Ask JW” articles. This week’s question concerns Javascript’s self-invoking anonymous functions, and comes from Travis.


Regex for Dummies: Day 4

We’ll be focusing specifically on Javascript and jQuery today, as we learn how to replace strings of text. Then, in a strange turn that has no place in the video, we’ll review how to correctly access the event object in all browsers (when using pure Javascript).


$1000 Miscellaneous/Joomla Competition!

New month – new competition! I’ll be frank – we’re not receiving many submissions to our “Miscellaneous” and “Joomla!” categories. I’ll be changing that. This month, we’re offering a $200 cash bonus to the first five accepted templates into either of these categories.


Regex for Dummies: Day 3

We’re going to start reviewing real-world examples. We’ll begin by learning the correct syntax for matching an email address. In day four, we’ll take things a step further and implement this code into a PHP and Javascript app.


Regex for Dummies: Day 2

Today, we’ll review the answers to yesterday’s quiz. We’ll then move on to examining PHP and Javascript’s methods for comparing regular expressions against strings.


Regular Expressions for Dummies

Welcome to my new video series, “Regular Expressions for Dummies”. Over the course of ten videos or so, I’m going to teach you how to use regular expressions in your Javascript and PHP applications. As always, I’ll assume you know absolutely zip. If you haven’t already, subscribe to our RSS feed, or follow me on Twitter to stay up to date on new releases.


What’s In Store?

Hi everyone. I thought I’d briefly go over what’s in store for the blog. To stir things up a bit, I’ll be making a few changes to increase the number of quality tutorials that we’ll be offering each week. In addition, I’ll be rolling out a new video series!


Best of the Best

From time to time, we like to send some praise to our top designers. Perhaps more than any other ThemeForest author, OXYLUSDESIGN has proven to be one of our most talented. Though primarily focusing on admin skins, the Oxylus team still finds time to create unique templates that are unlike any other offerings on ThemeForest. So if you’re curious enough, and are in need of a fantastic template for your company or project, be sure to look over our “Best of the Best” collection, and pick one up!
