[Plugin: AJAXed WordPress] activation problem (8 posts)

    I downloaded AJAXed WordPress and followed the installation instructions, but when I activate the plugin my blog's content disappears (becomes blank white space), and nothing shows in the AWP admin panel under the Presentation tab either (also just white space).

    Can anyone help?

    What I'm trying to do is add inline posts to the blog, so maybe there's another way to do this without adding AWP?

    I had same problem.

    Only advice I could come up with is don't use it.

    I tried uninstalling, reinstalling, etc. and it still kept screwing up.

    Ok - but is there another way to do it?

    I manage the site for a group of bloggers in my company. Many of their posts run several paragraphs, so they want to give readers the option of expanding a post without leaving the page. I've seen it done on several other blogs, so it is possible.

    Can you all try using the developmental version?

    Hi Rob, that is a cool idea. Not a WP or Ajax expert, but one way that might work is to change the article list pages to show full articles instead of excerpts, and then use some sort of javascript hide/show code for each post to hide x amount of the post until a "show" link is clicked.
    The problem I can see right off is the post appearance - the hide code would have to conform to the line height of the post text so that it wouldn't hide half of a line. Also, each javascript call would have to have a different identifier, or the "show" command would unhide all of the posts on the page.
    You'd also need to put .... before the Show link (like ".... Read More" pr something) so the sentence wouldn't just stop where the hide starts.

    All I can think of atm, hopefully someone with more skillz than I will weigh in with a solid answer :)

    Solved with this nifty plugin from Scriptygoddess. Basically it's a javascript plugin for WP that hacks the "more" button.

    By default it gives readers the option to "read more" on a separate page, or "read more here", which shows the rest of the post without leaving the page. But I edited it so the only option is to read more without leaving the page (I figure they can click the post title if they want to read it on a separate page).

    The bloggers are happy, my headache is gone. ;)

    Another plugin I found that looks like it should work, but I don't think is compatible with the version of WordPress I'm using (v2.0) is Collapsible Elements from DeUCeD. Also requires a bit more knowledge of CSS than I have at the moment. Others might find it useful though.

    Scriptygoddess' script seems to be broken in 2.7.1?
