About

4nf.org was founded in 2005, initially for different purposes.
Now, it is vastly dedicated to the most successful plugin: “Ajaxify”.

My main interests are jQuery, JavaScript, HTML, PHP, SQL and WordPress.

In the near future, I intend to spend most of my time to the forth-development of the plugin…

This was my first publication, which was very successful and ultimately taken over by Nokia.

  1. Hi

    is there a demo example showing how the installation and customisation of the .ajaxify(); works? it seems to be on hover of links .

    the old plugin I use also called “ajaxify” is set to work on <A links. So if a link has class .ajaxify then on click it loads the content of the href request into the main content area via ajax. you can also call actions onStart, onError, onSuccess.

    e.g. you could load a page into the main cell, then on success update the menu item to have a selected CSS class to highlight it in the menu.

    1. Hi Tony,

      http://4nf.org/interface/ -> “Example calls”

      That page shows various example calls and example websites, that use this plugin.
      Also, 4nf.org serves as an example, that is a fairly complex WordPress site.

      By default “previewoff” is true, so that swaps of the content div(s) are performed on click.
      This plugin ajaxifies all links, unlike the old plugin you’re describing.
      There is a class “.no-ajaxy” by default that prevents selected links to be ajaxified.

      As far as events are concerned, the Pronto events as described on http://4nf.org/pronto/ are fired.

      Thanks for the link to the “LiveQuery” plugin, which seems to be abandoned / very old and not maintained.
      Is there a successor?

      Ideally, both plugins – mine and the “LiveQuery” one could be used together, avoiding the re-invention of the wheel.

      Instead of copying the functionality of such a plugin, I was thinking of providing some basic page-transitions built-in next.

      What do others think?

      e.g. jQuery Mobile sort of has support for such page transitions…

      What would be the ideal interface for providing page transitions like:

      – Left to right
      – Right to left
      – Top to bottom
      – Bottom to top
      – Fade in
      – Fade out

      please see comments of Sahar: http://4nf.org/new-features-of-ajaxify-plugin/#comments

      Thanks and
      Kind regards

  2. Hi,

    is this a new plugin?

    I have sites that use an ajazify plugin that utilises ajaxify/livequery and history components to make ansynchronus ajax calls with auto-binding and history – but the plugins are no longer maintained and are from like 2006.

    So is this plugin seperate to that and would it be a better alternative?

    Tony

    1. Hi Tony,

      thanks for your interest in the plugin and the enquiry!
      Yes, it’s fairly new, uses a variant of the popular “Pronto” plugin as a backbone and builds up on that.
      At the core is the HTML5 History API, which Pronto encapsulates nicely.

      There are additional features such as the memory and turbo effect, delta-loading and more.
      What’s the “auto-binding” feature you’re mentioning? Sounds interesting.
      If you feel it’s lacking in this plugin, just let me know and I’ll raise an issue at GitHub, or if very simple, implement it straight away…

      Greetings, Arvind.

      1. ah – I may have described that incorrectly – i just meant using the old livequery plugin (around the old ajaxify one) which – “utilizes the power of jQuery selectors by firing callbacks for matched elements auto-magically, even after the page has been loaded and the DOM updated”

        i’m guessing your plugin must handle that as well.

        I may try it as an alternative to the plugins I have and see how it performs.

        Tony

    1. Thanks for procuring the plugin – that’s wonderful. Great website and I love the music, which keeps on playing across ajaxified clicks.

      Great stuff!

      1. Exactly! My target was just to implement this functionality (keeps on playing across ajaxified clicks)….:)
