Hi Everyone, AMMUG will resume normal meeting times now that summer semester has ended.

HTML 5 Animation Tools

HTML 5 You may already be familiar with Wallaby , Adobe's converter from Flash (.fla) to HTML 5 tool which has been available on for a couple of months now. There have been some good examples of using this in tandem with the new Flash capabilities in InDesign CS5+ to produce interactive and animated publications that can run on any platform including iOS devices. However, Adobe has just released something new called Adobe Edge, not to be confused with their video news magazine of the same name. This new Adobe® Edge is a web motion and interaction design tool that allows designers to bring animated content to websites, using web standards like HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS3. It's definitely worth a look! For more see this article form Mashable with a video preview.

Moving Wordpress

Relocate method

WordPress supports an automatic relocation method that will figure out and update those values for you automatically. This method is intended to be a quick assist to getting a site working when relocating a site from one server to another.

To use it:

1. Edit the wp-config.php file.

2. After the "define" statements, add this new one:


3. Go to the wp-login.php page in a web browser.

4. Login as per normal.

When the RELOCATE flag is set to true, the Site URL (NOT the home setting) will be automatically updated to whatever path you are using to access the login screen. This will get the admin section up and running on the new URL, but it will not correct any other part of the setup. Those you will still need to alter manually.

The Auto-Align Tool In Browserlab

Scott Fegette introduces the new auto-align feature in BrowserLab, a powerful tool that automatically aligns screenshots to a specific point of the page, to zero-in on discrepancies between browsers.
