Hip Hip Hooray!

I've been obsessing about how to get my mood icons thing to work with Expression Engine. Like I've said in the past, I know just enough programming to get myself into trouble. I know what I wanted, I just didn't know how to do it. I already had a decent javascript array that I wrote to use with MT, but I didn't know how to call it into the EE configuration. I had put a all my html code into a custom weblog field dropdown, but the html characters were breaking it so that the choice wasn't saved if you went back to edit the post. I wanted to put the mood names into that dropdown and then pull the html code out of the array. Marcus just figured out how to do it for me, so Yay!!!!!! All I had to do was a flash intro for one of his sites. Now I can finally move onto something else!

Archive and Category Jumpboxes for Expression Engine

I've been wanting dropdown type categories and stuff, but I don't like the dropdown look, especially in Safari. I really wanted something like the boxes at So Very Posh. Well, I found the code for jumpboxes (as they're called) over at Scriptygoddess. I figured out how to adapt Expression Engine code to make them work on this site. I'm posting the codes here for future reference:
