Todo Script

This is a simple “todo list” script written in PHP. It requires Apache and MySQL database. The php scripts are small, fast and easy to install. It works with CSS which can be easily modified to suit your style.

Data is displayed in a table format and is sortable by just clicking on the column header. Adding, updating and deleting a task is simple by simply clicking on the links. The delete function has a confirmation popup window to prevent accidental deletes.

Examples of Pages are the About, Contact, Archives and Link pages. All you need is a little bit of HTML and CSS code to create a 2 Column Page. Here’s how!

1. Format your WordPress Pages using the following HTML code

<div class='embed'>
Left Column Text
</div>
<div class='embed'>
Right Column Text
</div>
<div style='clear:both;'></div>

2. Add this CSS code to your theme’s stylesheet.

  padding:0 0 0 10px;
  margin:0 0 20px 0;

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Fusce gravida ornare vulputate. Fusce pulvinar placerat nulla, quis congue ligula malesuada in.

How About Multiple Columns

No problem. The code is very flexible. You can easily create multiple column pages by slightly modifying both HTML and CSS codes.

1. HTML: Add a 3rd or 4th “embed” class.
2. CSS: for 3 columns, use width of 31px; for 4 columns, use 22px.

Caveat

The WordPress Visual editor removes HTML tags like “div” tags. If you want a 2-column WordPress page, use and save your work using the HTML editor instead. It’s easy to switch to Visual and HTML and vice versa.

That’s it! Enjoy your 2 Column or Multiple Column Pages!
