The e-book WordPress and Ajax provides a thorough overview of integrating Ajax with WordPress. It covers Ajax in a way that has never been done before.
The book includes three actual examples that show the reasoning and logic behind code choices, the justifications for using Ajax, and the processes used to complete the exercises.
- Example 1: WP Grins Lite - We take a common and popular plugin and convert it to use Ajax for the loading of the smilies.
- Example 2: Static Random Posts - We take a common widget and add an Ajax function to it. This example will not only teach you how to create a widget, but also an admin panel, and Ajax functionality.
- Example 3: Ajax Registration Form - We take an ordinary registration form and perform data validation on it using Ajax.
