I don't like CMSs. Well, I must admit: I really hate CMSs. I'm stating that just because I do like programming my own web site with complete freedom. And CMSs - even if they claim to be complete or complicated - are usually too tight for my needs.
Even though that is always true and I won't change my mind in the future, I do believe that sometimes programming everything in a web site is very hard and time consuming. So a little help - with complete freedom and customization - is welcome.
jQuery has nothing to do with CMSs
I used jQuery in different situation, but surely one way to get started with it is to visit the plug-in page (jQuery Plug-In) or the incredible UI page (jQuery UI).
One of the plug-in I recently used is the round corner one. Actually there are many round-corners plug-in: sometimes they work with exCanvas (for IE compatibility), sometimes they don't. I recently found a good one (which is perfectly working in FF and IE) called jQuery Corner (http://jquery.malsup.com/corner/). If you look at the demo site you will understand how many possibilities you have at hand and I assure you, your web site design will surely get more attractive to users with the use of it.
Frankly you can just throw "jQuery" into Google and thousands of site will come out as result. Every time I have a problem and get stuck with lack of ideas, I always try and see if jQuery can help me someway and most the times it does!
In the end I invite you to give jQuery a try. It is worthwhile.
Oh... by the way, this post actually wrap up my first week as blogger. Wow! Not many hits (actually I would say almost no hits), but that's life and I still enjoy it.
