Im looking for an easy implementation of AJAX-like page loading inside a div. im not looking for anything other than page requests and to use a simple loading animation while the js inserts the contents. does anyone know of or have used a easy implementation of an ajax library. my problem is im a designer not a coder, but i can chore my way through and get a few things accomplished myself.
heres what im trying to accomplish:
I want to load initially a 3 column page with 2 category/listing columns and 1 larger entry column.
example here: http://drupal.brandform.net/ already started to be merged into drupal.
top level categories will always be in the left column
from there i want to be able to load dynamically "listing titles" into the second column like a "block" in drupal.
if you click a title it would asynchronously load the entry and comments into the far right column(with a loading animation)
I found one very easy script to work with from Dynamic Drive, but it doesnt seem backwards compatible...
heres a sample implementation im working on.
but getting the title image to replace the way im doing it is buggy in ie and didnt seem right.
can anyone recommend a simple framework for loading items in drupal into my container divs?
this theme might just be kick-ass if can get through some of these hurdles!
