Panic Over! PHP, CSS & HTML Help Sheets

Today, we’re introducing our all new Help Sheets. You loved our original CSS and HTML Help Sheets, so we went back to the originals, tidied them up, and gave them a sprinkling of coolness.

We’re also pleased to bring you an entirely new Help Sheet – the PHP Help Sheet. This should be a saviour for you hardcore coders when you forget the odd array function or two.

Oh and another thing, the other day one of our readers sent in a photo of our CSS Help Sheet on his office notice board. If you’re using our Help Sheets at your office / home / garage / Starbucks we’d love to see! Email us a photo or upload to Flickr with the tag “GoSquared”.

  • memsom

    ActionScript and JavaScript would be nice!

  • Jenn

    Nice… I did love the originals, and have to say, I’m glad you decided to bring them back and re-do them; not that they needed it.. but that’s just a personal observation. Keep up the great work!

    And I have to agree… JS and AS would be awesome 😉

  • hex

    very nice. thanks guys. yeah..i guess javascript is next and maybe some basic usability guidelines.

  • walter

  • Chris

    These rock. Great reference. Well thought out and designed. Would love to see an Actionscript version.

  • James

    Cool, thanks everyone for the comments! Looks like ActionScript is in most demand so far.

    I’ll keep you posted!

  • Sharrk blodies

  • tupresen

    Something any developper or webmaster should have hung on his walls. Excellent. I agree some more would be good for mysql, javascript, actionscript, AJAX, XML…

  • Steven Hmableton

    How about the template so we can create our own 😉

  • Steven Hambleton

    Apart from not being able to spell my own surname I noticed that you have but not . One is obviously XHTML and the other HTML.

    It would be useful for newcomers to know which version you are using :)

  • James

    We are working on a JavaScript Help Sheet right now.

    Giving away a template to create your own would be cool, but if people started creating their own Help Sheets using it and made any major mistakes, people might recognise the design and slate us for it.

    We’ll try and get you guys and girls a brand new Help Sheet ready as a Christmas present 😉

  • Constantine

    Excellent work!
    Have a nice day!

  • Mitelinko

    Great work ! I think that the next MOST NEEDED is JavaScript it is used a lot so it would be helpful to have a look on the Help Sheet when you don’remember something or just to check if you were right . 10x a lot! Bye!

  • Oscar Silva

    muchas gracias por compartir esta gran ayuda.

  • Sam

    How long will the Javascript reference take? That is most needed.

  • James

    Hi Sam, apologies for the delay, we’ve been working on the main GoSquared site and Services over the last few months.

    We’ll try to release the new Help Sheet as soon as possible.

    Sorry it’s taking so long,


  • Sam

    Ok, I’ll be looking forward to it, I really like this website :).

  • LÃ¥n penge

    A web programming help sheets for web design newbies. .. This looks cool. Well done to the makers. You’re such a gift to aspiring designers. It’ll sure be a great help for me. Can’t wait to share this too. Great job!

  • Hanlet

    Javascript would be a nice one to have! Please Javascript!!!!

  • Not so happy

    This work would be nice if you wouldn’t be stealing it from others without even quoting the original author!
    Leslie Franke did this CSS Cheat Sheet way before you, and strangely enough, more than 2 years before you, his css sheet looks strangely similar.

    Have a look:

    How do you explain the similarities, if not plain copy/pasting?!!!

    This is not the proper way to do things, man! You should at least credit the original author! Shame on you.

  • James Gill

    @Not So Happy,

    The CSS Help Sheet was originally created in February 2007 – a long time ago. A lot has happened since then. We admit that the original was strongly influenced by the work of Leslie Franke, but at the time we felt that we had put sufficient effort and design work into our CSS Help Sheet to call it our own. We were wrong.

    Looking at the two compared side by side, and with experience over several years in the industry, we can see that we were wrong. A linked reference to Leslie Frank’s original work has been added to the main article.

    We are working on a new set of Help Sheets as they have been so popular with the community. We will be changing the CSS Help Sheet to ensure the new one is distinctly our own.
