Here's a quick MySQL tip I wanted to throw your way. I created an event system a while back and one of the requirements of the system was to show events that happened yesterday forward, meaning events older than 2 days were to be hidden. MySQL's date_add will allow you to do just that:
The MySQL Example
SELECT title, venue, url, city, state, DATE_FORMAT(date_starts,\'%b %e\') as formatted_date
WHERE date_starts >= DATE_ADD(NOW(), INTERVAL -1 DAY) // yesterday!
ORDER BY date_starts ASC
Note that I'm using a negative date value. You can use a positive date value to get tomorrow, next week, next month, etc..
I like the idea of showing events the from past few days -- they show that there's been action recently. Click here for more about MySQL date_add.
Theming has become a big part of the Web 2.0 revolution. Luckily, so too has a higher regard for semantics and CSS standards. If you build your pages using good XHTML code, changing a CSS file can make your website look completely different.
CodePen is an amazing source of inspiration for code and design. I am blown away every day by the demos users create. As you'll see below, I have an affinity toward things that move. It was difficult to narrow down my favorites, but here they are!
