This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



AHAX is a drop-in solution that allows theme or plug-in developers to take advantage of a very simple and streamlined way of making AJAX requests.

The goal of this plugin is to make the process of setting up an AJAX request as simple as possible.

This plugin centers AJAX requests around an “action.” This action is “bound” to a function (handler) on the back-end and called to from front-end via a custom JavaScript class method — this process is demonstrated below.


ahax::bind( 'get_random_number', 'generate_number' ); function generate_number($output) {     $max = abs( ( int ) $_POST['max'] );     $output = mt_rand( 0 , ( $max <= 1000 ? $max : 1000 ) );     return $output; } 


var ahax = new AHAX(); 'get_random_number', { max : 1000 }, function( response ) {     jQuery( '#ahax_number' ).html( response ); });
