Strangely, that not written about it before :)
So, now almost all sites use a couple social buttons from a different social networks. And you may be interesting how to make it work, social buttons with AJAX.

I have a few tips.

New version of the Add FullAjax plugin for Joomla! (2012.04.20).
Looks like it last version that support Joomla! 1.5. Almost updates here for Joomla! 2.5.
Not tested with Joomla! 1.7.

What in this version:

  • updated FullAJAX library to latest version
  • fixed couple bugs with HTML5 History API
  • fixed work in IE, with links that contain special chars
  • fixed display < title > with special chars
  • removed doSomethingAfterFAjxPagLoad() function
  • partial rewritten the animation code (only for Joomla! 2.5)
  • changed the logic of check the current active menu item (only for Joomla! 2.5)
  • several small changes, almost for Joomla! 2.5 :)

Attention! Removed doSomethingAfterFAjxPagLoad() function (but you can back it if want ;) ), instead use the ‘load’ event:

FLAX.Html.onall('load', function(options){
//some code

If you site work good with one of older version, think twice before update plugin ;)

->Download for Joomla! 1.5<-

->Download for Joomla! 2.5<-

JavaScript library FullAJAX now also on Github.
By address FullAJAX

Who still does not know, I remind that this is such a powerful thing that allows you to easily add AJAX to your site ;) Also AddFullajax plugin for Joomla! based on this.

Good news for AddFullAjax plugin and JComments component users. As you know, after installing the plugin AddFullAjax – JComments refused to work. The reason is the same as with LightBox.

To make this work, you need a small AddFullAjax configuration, somthing like for LightBox.

So just add next in plugin configuration :

FLAX.Html.onall('load', function(options){
  if(window.JCommentsInitializeForm &&'comments-form')){

that’s all ;)

Using the library FullAjax can face the fact that other scripts (eg LightBox) refuse to work or its not working correctly. The reason these scripts from which refuse to work is very simple – they are not quite designed to works with AJAX.

How can fix it I try describe in a few lines below …

FullAjax library allows you to update more than one container through the implementation of it with two models of request – one request for one block and one request for multiple blocks. In the plugin Add FullAjax (2011.01.10) this feature is used to update the “Breadcrumbs” module. Of course instead of the “Breadcrumbs” module you can use any other, but only one – this is due to the fact that now I have not thought how to automate the setup process to upgrade several modules. Below a little instruction how to configure the update several modules through Ajax.
