[HTML] Marquee Party!

Hey! I've been searching on something to do when I came across a site that has a moving text. At first, I thought that it's some javascript code or something that makes it move but when I use firebug to look at the code I saw that it's using the <marquee> tag. I haven't use the marquee tag for a long time so I decided to explore the said tag once again.

[Joomla] How to get the new ID when using JTable

If you're using the JFactory::getDBO when inserting a new row in the database, you can easily access the ID of the newly inserted row via insertid() function but in most cases (specially from the backend) we use JTable to insert the rows. The question is: how to get the new id when using the JTable class? Here's how:

First, we instantiate the JTable we're going to use
$mytable = $this->getTable('some_table');

Next, we'll get the new ID
$db = $mytable->getDBO();

[Joomla] Change Browser Header Text

Ever wonder how to change the browser header text? Most of the time, the header text displays the name or title of the menu item or the component so you only have a limited power to change the text.

You're wrong!

You can change manually the browser header text through this codes:
$document =& JFactory::getDocument();
$document->setTitle('My Header Text Title');

Although you can do it using the traditional way:
  <title>My Header Text Title</title>

But pfft that's an old style.
