AJAX in Olympus?

Post by el noobe » Tue Jun 06, 2006 6:56 pm

Hello everyone,
I just wanted to ask if there is/will be any AJAX functions in the upcoming phpBB 3 release? I mean a function like editing posts on the same page as reading them (The message is just brought into a textarea for editing). Or does Olympus just uses PHP? I've seen those functions in other forum software like vBulletin...

Thanks,
el noobe

I am not sure if Olympus will support this feature, but I already know a mod that gives phpBB2 Ajax.

Are you saying you don't like AJAX or you don't want to wait longer for them to add it in? :P lol

personally, some things should not be ajaxed, while others would be much more awesome if they were. ;)

Finally I am happy if there is no Ajax.

I think a few small portions of Olympus use AJAX

AJAX is a method of using Javascript, XML, and another scripting language such as PHP or Perl to create dynamic pages that update and reload very quickly and smoothly.

The real problem with AJAX is that you have to take special care to make sure your javascript works on all browsers, otherwise you must also spend time gracefully degrading your javascript so that if a browser doesn't work as expected or they have javascript turned off that the site will still function.
