Support » Fixing WordPress » The proper way to have Javascript call PHP scripts

  • Hello,

    I am currently working on a project that requires users to down vote and upvote things, an example being links in a post.

    I have all of the voting data saved into custom fields for each post.
    Currently when a person down votes or upvotes something I have a Javascript function that makes a xmlhttprequest to a PHP script somewhere on my server.

    The script loads wordpress functions using
    require_once('../../../../wp-load.php');

    and I update_post_meta or do whatever I have to do.

    I am wondering if this is the best way to go about getting this effect and what is the best practice for doing something like this?

    Thanks
