[Request] Read More... with Ajax (7 posts)

    I know this is awfully hard and that some sites tried to implement it. There's a simple javascript "solution" that works but the usability is really low.

    I know also that there's an plugin with Ajax for Comments, so this also should be possible.

    So, I'm officially requesting a plugin to open the Read More... part of an post, in the front page, with Ajax.

    It is some hide/show javascript. It can be found it at

    Asynchronous JavaScript And XML
    Ajax

    They are the same ?

    *podz - yup! There are a few other things that fix that acronym too, but that's one of the more common interpretations.

    Yeah, yeah... I tried that plugin that uses JS, but isn't exactly what I'm searching for.

    In terms of usability, when you click on Read More, the plugin should take you to the place where you clicked. An when you click on close, it should take you to the beginning of the post. Sincerely (as I don't know JS) I don't know if that can be done with JS alone.
    And there is the bandwith consumption issue too.

    Done.
    As of popular request I changed the 'read more ajax' code to do this automatically for the <!-- more --> tags in WP2.
    My plugin can be found here: http://blog.hansa2k.de/inline-ajax-more/
    Uses script.aculo.us for the FX, no code hacking neccessary.

    Greetz to all German hackers,
