Hi all,

I am using the following code on a custom action page on a SMF board.


if (!defined('SMF'))
die('Hacking attempt...');

function kb() {
global $context;
$context['killboard'] = 'Elysian Empires\' Death \'n Destruction Page';

function template_main() {
echo '
<script type="text/javascript">

//To include a page, invoke ajaxinclude("afile.htm") in the BODY of page

var rootdomain="http://"+window.location.hostname

function ajaxinclude(url) {
var page_request = false
if (window.XMLHttpRequest) // if Mozilla, Safari etc
page_request = new XMLHttpRequest()
else if (window.ActiveXObject){ // if IE
try {
page_request = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP")
catch (e){
page_request = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
catch (e){}
return false
page_request.open(\'GET\', url, false) //get page synchronously

function writecontent(page_request){
if (window.location.href.indexOf("http")==-1 || page_request.status==200)

<script type="text/javascript">



The problem is that the page initially loads fine but when I click a link on the page loaded the URL is not correct. To clarify:

The custom action URL is smf.bijkersworld.com/index.php?action=kb //this page contains the code above.

When I click a link on the included page it wants to load /index.php?a=search. This should be /kb/index.php?a=search.

I'd appreciate any help with this.

Thanks in advance.

Make sure the links inside the included Ajax page are absolute URLs (versus relative), ie:

http://mysite.com/kb/index.php?a=search (instead of just /kb/index.php?a=search)

This would avoid any issue with the final URL being modified based on the directory structure of the page that's showing the Ajax page.

I tried that, the only location where I could do that is in the line

var rootdomain="http://"+window.location.hostname

Changed to

var rootdomain="http://smf.bijkersworld.com/kb"

This gives me a popup with error message:
error: the xajax javascript component could not be included. perhaps the url is incorrect?

url: common/xajax_js/xajax_core.js

Any ideas what is going on?
