The font will be accessed every time the file is accessed (assuming that it’s not cached by the client) but that won’t have an effect on your bandwidth consumption – the font is not transferred between the server and the client – it remains on the server – only the rendered image is transferred.

Filament Group’s solution is nice but it may be a little too much for some people. I tend to use this: http://gist.github.com/187915

I think a server-side solution would be better suited to your needs. This type of thing really shouldn’t be done with JavaScript…

Yep, that’s possible.

With progressive enhancement in mind you’ll want to have all three forms existing within the page and then you can use jQuery to dynamically hide them. Then, you can attach a click handler to each icon/button that will show the respective form.

I’m not sure what you mean by “slide” but here’s a quick demo of what I interpreted it as: http://jsbin.com/ojovi

If you’ve got time on your hands then definitely learn JavaScript first, then, when you’re ready, you can move on to jQuery or any other JavaScript framework.

New contact forms are being submitted nearly everyday but we can’t approve them because then we’d simply have too many.

Our policy is to only approve items if something with the same functionality has not yet been submitted – if someone was to submit a contact form but with a couple of unique features that differentiates it from the current selection then we could approve it. But most contact forms being submitted are exactly the same as the current selection.

Plus, another problem: Most people will judge a PHP script by its demo, not by the code behind it. I don’t think people realise what they’re buying in the PHP category – code, just code! ... So, when you say you want to see a “better selection” what do you mean? Are you looking for different functionality? Or just some different designs?

I wish people wouldn’t paste just one part of a review and say it’s unfair. I went beyond my call of duty in that very review by suggesting ways in which the author could improve the item.

The fact is, what gets accepted isn’t based on any one thing. We have to take many different aspects into account.

Appeal, functionality, features, code-quality, app-design, uniqueness…

I’m going to have another look at your improved script, hopefully I’ll be able to approve it but please, try to understand, if it’s rejected there’s a good reason.

Also, FYI , my internet’s been down for the last 30 hours so I (obviously) haven’t been able to do any reviewing. Please be patient with us :)

Hi hiddenpearls.

Here’s my suggestion: Lose the interface. The UI does nothing for the component because most buyers will want to have more control; you can give them this control by letting them interact with the functionality on a lower level. That’s why I suggested a PHP class. A buyer can download your script, include it in their project and have a widget in seconds.
