    Winners of the Nettuts+ Anniversary Competition Announced!Anniversary
    I'm both super excited and sad to announce the winners of our first annual Anniversary competition! Why sad, you might ask? This contest was extremely close - close enough to delay this announcement for two days! As our contestants are aware, I intentionally introduced a grand prize that was far beyond the second through fourth place prizes. Knowing that, it became essential to spend as much time as possible determining the true champion. Each of the templates listed below were deserving of the first place seat, but only one could be crowned. Many factors were considered when deciding: aesthetics, documentation, coding practices, average sales per day, etc. So without further ado, here are the best of the best. Thanks again to our sponsors: MediaTemple, E Text-Editor, and Packt Publishing. We're all huge fans of the services you offer. Read More…

Many of them however are user-initiated; meaning that in order for the currently displayed content to change, the visitor must click a button or perform some other action. This scroller will be different in that it will be completely autonomous and will begin scrolling once the page loads. Read More…
