   var anchor = this.hash,  
$target = $(target); 
   $('html, body').stop().animate({ 
 'scrollTop': $target.offset().top 
 }, 500, 'swing', function () {
  window.location.hash = anchor; 

2. JS : jQuery Get All Nodes, Including Orphaned Text

$nodes.each(function() {
if(this.nodeType === 3 && $.trim($(this).text())) { 

3. Select Box Restrict

$("#categories option").click(function(e){
  if ($(this).parent().val().length > 2) {

4. Facebook Get User Permissions and Send These Via Ajax

// always put this function inside a click or a user action, don't automatically open it or browser will block the popup.  
FB.login(function(logged) {  
if(logged.status == "connected"){  
FB.api("/me", function(response) {
  $.ajax({  type: "POST",  url: "pass_value.php",  data: {
fb_id: response.id, name: response.first_name, last_name: response.last_name,
 gender: response.gender},  success: 
function(){window.location.href = "gosomewhere.php"; 
}  /* in the scope u specify all permission you need, in this case you get all basic INFO and pubblish to wall permission */
  }, {scope: 'publish_stream'}); 

5. jQuery Remove Class with WildCard

var _c = 'your-icon-class'
$('.currency').removeClass (function (index, css) {
return (css.match (/\bicon-\S+/g) || []).join(' ');

6. jQuery Toggle Disabled

/* HTML 
 <input type="text"value="I &lt;3 EMOTICODE <img src="http://codegeekz.com/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" class="wp-smiley"> " />  <input type="button" value="Toggle Disabled" />
// Plugin 
(function($) { 
$.fn.toggleDisabled = function() { 
return this.each(function() { 
var $this = $(this); 
if ($this.attr('disabled')) $this.removeAttr('disabled'); 
else $this.attr('disabled', 'disabled'); 
};  })(jQuery); 
 // TEST 
$(function() { 

7. Smooth Scroller

// HTML:  //
  <h1 id="anchor">Lorem Ipsum</h1>
//<a class="topLink" href="#anchor">Back to Top</a>
{    $("a.topLink").click(function() {
$("html, body").animate({
scrollTop: $($(this).attr("href")).offset().top + "px"
{  duration: 500,  easing: "swing"
});  return false;

$('input').change(function () {
var formbox = $(this).attr('id');  array1.push(formbox);
  console.log("you filled out box " + array1);
$('#submit').click(function ()
{  console.log('tracked ' + array1);
 //alert('this is the order of boxes you filled out: ' + array1);
 _gaq.push(['_trackEvent', 'Form', 'completed', '"' + array1 + '"']);

var strongRegex = new RegExp("^(?=.{8,})(?=.*[A-Z])(?=.*[a-z])(?=.*[0-9])(?=.*\W).*$", "g");
var mediumRegex = new RegExp("^(?=.{7,})(((?=.*[A-Z])(?=.*[a-z]))|((?=.*[A-Z])(?=.*[0-9]))|((?=.*[a-z])(?=.*[0-9]))).*$", "g");
var enoughRegex = new RegExp("(?=.{6,}).*", "g");
if (false == enoughRegex.test($(this).val())) {
$('#passstrength').html('More Characters');  }
else if (strongRegex.test($(this).val())) {
$('#passstrength').className = 'ok';
  $('#passstrength').html('Strong!');  }
else if (mediumRegex.test($(this).val())) {
