Answerbase: Q&A Forum (3 Annual Licenses Giveaway)

Posted · Category: Announcement

Answerbase allows you to set up a Q&A system for your website in just a few minutes. You can easily integrate with your existing website or start a brand new online Q&A community on any subject.

Users will be able to ask questions relevant to your site’s subject matter quickly and easily through your very own Q&A platform. As your visitors ask questions, other members of the community and members of your staff are able to submit quality answers.


One of the features I really like about Answerbase is that active members and the answers that they submit are ranked and rated so that visitors to your site are able to easily recognize valuable content and contributors. And also, your Q&A site can be customized to reflect your design preferences, allowing you to visually integrate with your existing site.

Answerbase is very kind to giveaway 3x Business Level accounts (1 full year of free service valued at $200/month each) to our readers. In order to win one of the annual licenses, you have to sign up for a free trial of the Answerbase service, and then submit your Answerbase site name to the comments under this post. Winners will be picked randomly on 7th July 2011.

You can also check out the live example of a search on DocumentCloud.org that uses facets. VisualSearch.js is an open-source component of DocumentCloud, and it is hosted on GitHub.

Fully Automated Web Application Security Scanner

Posted · Category: Security

Skipfish is an active web application security reconnaissance tool. It prepares an interactive sitemap for the targeted site by carrying out a recursive crawl and dictionary-based probes.

The resulting map is then annotated with the output from a number of active (but hopefully non-disruptive) security checks. The final report generated by the tool is meant to serve as a foundation for professional web application security assessments.

Create CSS Sprite Images Easily with Sprite Cow

Posted · Category: GPL License, MIT License, Tools

Sprite Cow helps you get the background-position, width and height of sprites within a spritesheet as a nice bit of copyable css. I personally found it pretty useful and easy to use.

There are one or two rather clever tricks happening with Javascript and Canvas to discover the dimensions of images and generate the CSS, they have also shared the code on Github so that others can see under the hood.
