  1. This is pretty slick, and while there’s a bunch of other plugins that accomplish this, I like that you’re looking to develop skills for designers using the system.

    I did notice in other articles as well that sometimes the CSS is explained, and others it is not. I would imagine that could be useful for others who have little experience with CSS (and even jQuery) to understand the *what and why* of any code used.

  2. Nice, been looking for something like this. 🙂

  3. Thank you for this tutorial!

  4. Its perfect..to place logo perfectly in header

  5. Hi Don,
    Thanks for the step by step tutorial. Its very much helpful, an awesome time saving way to do CSS.

  6. I’ll second Callum’s comments. It would be good to see the CSS/Jquery and even better a demo site so you could see this in action.
