Ajax features in phpbb3

Post by frik85 »

I would like to see some Ajax features in phpbb3. I have not found any related information neither in this forum nor in the feature list.

It would save traffic if only a fraction of the page would get reloaded if someone vote, write a reply, etc.

Even the search page would profit from such an improvement. Imagine a search box and while you type the first characters you will get the search result entries in realtime even before you finished to type. If you don't understand what I mean, visit the following page and scroll down to the bottom and try out the "Search for" function:
http://www.reactos.org/" target="_blank

And as fallback solution (for old browser or without Javascript enabled) the current available implementation.

Wierd, I have used the search function and it has shown no result at all. Now it does show several results when i use the same search word "ajax".
Was the search broken (bug/buggy) before?

Anyway thanks for the answer.

This is a development board, the search feature is not guaranteed to work. I believe there have been lengthy periods where it did not work correctly.

Anyway, you want 'AJAX'... why? IMO, AJAX for the sake of AJAX is pointless, it's just a gimmick that's eventually going to wear off. I think the 'AJAX' scheme can be used to good effect, but in the current times they are rare.

I think a 'live' search box would be a very bad thing. It would be likely to put an incredible amount of load on the server and be completely impractical for very large, popular sites. I mean, really can't people just wait to complete their keywords before seeing results?

IMO, I'd love to agree with you, but I predict the opposite is true.
AJAX is going nowhere fast (nowhere slow?).
i.e. it's here to stay.

I'm working on an AJAX Based IM/Chat.. :) for Olympus.. I've used a Flash/Java chat before.. but that one was to heavy for my little server.. And the integration with phpbb didn't go very wel..

But with AJAX.. you can do very neath things.. so you dont have to use Flash for example..
