View Full Version : PHP include

11-11-2008, 04:22 AM
Hi all,

I'm a newbie at PHP and am getting started with the basics. Is it possible to load in a PHP include file into a specific area of a page when a hyperlink is clicked? (I assume this is something like an i-frame). I'm looking to be able to click on a thumnbail and have it's large image load into the page without reloading all of the information.

Here is one of the sites I was told to reference for the functionality.
clicking on the navigation, you can see how everything under the nav loads fast, but the header doesn't reload.

this is done through "AJAX" or remote scripting.

There are many tutorials on the web about how to send a request to the server via AJAX in real time. Google (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=ajax+tutorial&btnG=Search) is your friend!
