  • Markland Clinic

    For the latest incarnation of this UK Physiotherapy site in 2010, I created a smooth-scrolling Flash animation for a band of pictures along the top. In 2008, a new branding had been created by designer Ray Lipscombe, so I had a straightforward time implementing it. Ray's design for the sister site, Sports Perform, provided me my first opportunity to create a Flash presentation. It was as simple as they come, a sequence of photos of athletes fading into each other. I used the excellent and eve...

  • Cat Hotel Stoney Creek

    They did not require a huge amount of content, but they liked my suggestion of an expandable section for Vet advice and anecdotes. A key selling point of the cattery is that Ellis is a vet so the cats get expert care. Ellis has a fund of stories collected from her experience - in fact secretly she thinks of herself as the new James Herriot. As well as being simply interesting and informative, adding more text to the site will gradually help google ranking: the site becomes increasingly associat...

  • Magazine Subscriptions Database

    It has required a fair amount of detective work in a short time to deduce the intricate database architecture of the Dioscuri system, and to bend the legacy data to suit. For example, we had several years worth of records, thousands of transactions, which did not actually say what had been bought. Exactly the kind of challenge that I like. (And the cake was very welcome too, thanks!) I also have found use for my experience at google Geocoding, to write a small utility which helps clean up th...

  • SQL, delimiters for field names which have spaces

    I had a table with a field name of "local authority" (no quotes) and wanted to do a SELECT. The space in teh middle caused a moment of delay and head-scratching. You can't duck the issue because SELECT local authority FROM tbl_nz_schools; will cause a syntax error. A rummage on google got the answer from a MySql forum which seems worth repeating here: use the backwards quote as a delimiter. This is the obscure key which is typically to the left of the digit 1 on the keyboard. SELECT `local auth...

  • Home

    I am Dave Wilcox, a website, PHP and database developer, and, admittedly, a bit of a geek. I moved from the UK in 2008, and I now work as a contractor in Auckland, New Zealand and also work for remote clients. I live a stone's throw outside Auckland with my wife Amanda, who keeps my batteries charged with tea and biscuits. We share our life with two cats, lots of wildlife and a great rural outlook. I can work flexibly, from clients' premises (if you want bums on seats), but if distance is an...

  • Medipharma E-Commerce Sites

    Initially I planned to write these mostly with my own PHP plus a small open-source PHP tool for a shopping cart. However, almost by chance, I stumbled across PHP OpenCart. I was very fortunate to discover this great piece of kit. It is fantastic for the small and medium site which wants to present and sell products. I managed to get both sites built with very little bother in about six or seven working days. Out of the box, OpenCart has a reasonable array of options without making life very com...

  • Mobile-friendly Website Conversion

    Max Maxwell runs www.singforjoy.org.nz, and had heard the advisory warning from google, at end of 2014, that mobile-unfriendly sites would gradually descend in its search listings. He asked me if I could protect him against such a woeful fate. I admit to being something of a Luddite when it comes to mobile phones, but of course recognise my minority status in that regard. I had never worked on the mobile aspects of web design before, and I was quite keen to learn about this new specialisation o...
