3. Taxonomy Archives: List Posts by Post Type – Tuts+ Code Tutorial

What I’ll show you how to do here is to create an archive template for a taxonomy which lists posts by post type.

This might be useful if you have registered a post type which you want to keep separate from normal posts or from another post type, but have a taxonomy which applies to both. For example, if you’re listing books and articles as different post types, but will have common topics as your taxonomy (e.g. WordPress!).

5. Arrow Navigation Styles | Codrops

Today we’d like to share some inspiration for arrow navigation styles with you. There are so many creative ways of showing those little elements that are an essential part of many websites nowadays. You can find them in content slideshows, as part of the page navigation, in image galleries and many more. These indicators are mostly represented as arrows that point to the left and right. There are of course arrows pointing up and down, too. But today we want to focus on the lateral ones and create some interesting hover effects that in some cases enhance the element, or show a preview of the content to come.

These effects are for your inspiration. Please note that they will only work in modern browsers. Also note that we are using the hover element state to show the effect which is not a solution for touch devices.

8. Compressor.io: Free Tool Reduces The File Size of Your JPEG, PNG, GIF or SVG by up to 90 Percent – noupe

## A new web app by not so unknown Stephane Lyver delivers automatic image optimization for the common formats JPEG, PNG, GIF and SVG. The compression is able to either work lossy or lossless. The strength of compression is not adjustable by the user, Compressor.io will always try to reduce to the max.

9. Public Domain Archive: High-Res Photos for Free – noupe

The market of free photo providers is growing fast. After a decade of market domination, giant services like Shutterstock and others see themselves faced with a competition that will likely change the whole way this industry is structured.

This new breed of photo services is different in one vital way, they don’t take money for the right to publish a picture. Some don’t even require you to mention them or say “Thank You”. One of these high-grade new services stems from Athens in Georgia, US. Designer and photographer Matt Hobbs and his wife Shayna created and maintain it. It is still tiny in comparison, but already worth a visit or two.
