DPXradar is a link roundup of important and informative links to stories, blog posts, articles, services, apps and plugins for online business owners, people who run websites and WordPress users and enthusiasts. This will be an ongoing series that I plan on posting roughly once a month in a free association format.

CU3ER, the awesome 3D image slidshow plugin that is for some dumb-ass reason built in Flash is finally available in a Javascript version. You know, for those of you rocking an iPad or iPhone.

I know this is old as hell but it’s awesome and should be instituted nonetheless (perhaps in the next iteration of HTML). It’s a call to get an attribute called fullsize added to the <IMG> tag.

There are MANY fantastic javascript/AJAX solutions out there to view a larger version of an image by displaying it as a in-page pop-up or lightbox pop-up. So many solutions in fact that it is rare to visit a website with a photo gallery that does not already utilize one of these solutions. So why not make it a standard? Why not let the browsers take care of the heavy lifting rather than us web developers via javascript? I propose adding a fullsize attribute to the <IMG> tag. By which you can references a larger (or fullsize) version of the SRCimage. Browsers could then include native support to display the fullsize image in a pop-up.

Here’s a WordPress plugin that makes adding tooltips very easy.

The Jigoshop folks have released a theme called Jigotheme that integrates nicely with their WordPress eCommerce plugin.
