How to Detect Android and Redirect to Android Version Website


I have been posting redirect scripts for several devices such as the iphone and ipad, and I thought why not add android to the list. I own a android phone and I love it, and I have tested this script so I know it works. This code detects whether the person viewing your website is on a Android device. If they are on a Android phone, you can redirect them to a android version website or just to another page, its up to you. If they are on a normal computer it doesn’t redirect them and they go on as normal. Its just some simple javascript, and if you want to use it just change the “document.location” value to the url you want them redirected. Here is the code, and its just the same as when you detect for iPhone.

<script type="text/javascript"> // <![CDATA[
	if ( (navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Android') != -1) ) {
		document.location = "";
	} // ]]>


Flash News Feed Ticker

Flash News Feed Ticker

I have just finished working on another file for sale on ActiveDen and its a Flash News Feed Ticker. This is the second version of my News Feed Ticker, and the biggest difference is that I implemented an XML file to style it and for customization reasons, and it has a lot of improvements including:

  • It’s compatible with all feed types (RSS and ATOM )
  • This ticker automatically grabs the first image in each feed post to display
  • It updates automatically
  • It is completely customizable through an XML file so there is no need to even open up Flash to edit it
  • Completely re-sizable so that it fits to any size container
  • Easy to change the number of posts you want displayed

This news feed ticker, or reader as some people call them, includes three different skins or themes: a dark, a light, and a social media skin. Also if you want to customize the look and feel of it, you can do this very easily by editing the colors in the XML settings file or by editing the symbols in the Flash file’s library. Also there is an in-depth help file included.


Featured Author of the Week on ActiveDen

Since joining ActiveDen, where you can buy and sell royalty-free Adobe Flash and Flex files, I have wanted to make the featured author of the week. I am proud to announce that I have finally achieved this goal of mine.  I am really honored and humbled to be chosen and want to thank Envato (The Company that owns  the marketplace) for selecting me, especially LanceSnider, the ActiveDen Site Manager. If you have ever thought about selling graphics, or wordpress themes, or anything of that nature then the Envato Marketplaces are the way to go.  These sites have the best community of authors and buyers.

Its really been amazing creating files and seeing people use them on their own sites, and  there is something really rewarding in it thats hard to articulate with words. Thanks again ActiveDen for the opportunity you give us and for the feature.

Cya Website

I have finished up another website for a client of mine (my wife), designed for her blog called The blog chronicles the renovations and decorating of our house, some recipes, and stories associated with the raising of our family. I worked really closely with her on the design of the site and I think it came out really well. I developed it using the WordPress backend, so she could easily make posts to it and handle the whole site by herself. We focused a lot on search engine optimization and the site has had a really good start so far… she has over 15 followers already. There are tons of home design blogs out there and they are getting bigger all the time. If you are looking for a custom made blog template, contact me so we can discuss the details of the project.


Flash WordPress Template called RocFolio 2


I have just finished my second website template, it’s a Flash WordPress Template called RocFolio 2.  This Flash WordPress Template is perfect as a portfolio or if you want to display your latest featured work in a great way. If you use wordpress, then it automatically updates itself by getting the information from your wordpress site after you make new posts. If you don’t have a wordpress blog, a sample XML file is included that you can use. This template is very easy to use, easy to setup, and easy to customize all through XML . RocFolio 2 comes with a help file and 5 different themes. The different flash themes include a Dark, Light, Bokeh, Starfield, and Two-Tone version, or you can customize the look and feel of it very easily. Also, each templates include  a contact form with error checking, and a muic player with tons of features. This Flash WordPress Template includes navigation for going between multiple Feeds (or multiple sample xml files) or external links, and another navigational menu  that can be used as social media menu that has a special random letter hover effect. Like I have said before, if you use wordpress then it automically updates itself through the RSS feed of the site, and then it automatically grabs the first image in the post to display. This template can be customizable through 4 simple XML files, uses tweener for smooth transitions, and has a 3 column layout layout with headers that have the ability to add an image, use text, or both. There are tons of other features and options, and I hope you enjoy it.

RocFolio 2 is the second version of one of my best selling items on  First first version, RocFolio, is more geared towards being a Flash and WordPress Portfolio Template, because it can only take in a single RSS Feed, unlike RocFolio 2 where you can go between multiple rss feeds or wordpress categories.  Below is a preview image of RocFolio. It its not fully customizable by XML like RocFolio 2 is but its still really easy to use and setup through  Flash.
