Web Dev One-liner

  • Discovered on a site that happens to have about 50mb of jpegs (the vast majority unrelated to the page in question) sitting directly in the "images" directory:

    <body onLoad="MM_preloadImages('images/home.jpg', 'images/*.jpg')">

    For those unfamiliar with the image preloading javascript function bundled with Dreamweaver: no, it does not handle wildcards. 

  • I wouldn't think it would, I mean most of the time you can't get directory listings (at least not these days), so the server would have to somehow, magically send you a list back based on your wild card... the whole thing makes my head explode.
