Bootstrap Twitter Button

May 24, 2013 Leave a comment

The other day, while putting together Tweet My Search, I was looking for a twitter icon that I could put as an icon on a bootstrap button. By default, the bootstrap library (as far as I know) does not come with the twitter icon, even though it’s a twitter product.

jquery colorbox as simple dialog

<a onclick="delete_entry_dialog(<?php echo $entry['id'] ?>)">Remove</a>

function delete_entry_dialog(id) {    
    $.colorbox({inline:true, href:'#delete_entry_dialog'});
    $('#delete_dialog_continue').bind('click', function() {

jquery focus after blur

Need to focus() on the input field after the user has clicked or tabbed off the input field?

You might also want to add a .select() to re-select the input field causing the problem (if it’s a text field)
