The wordpress portfolio theme I just purchased as the option of an Ajax portfolio or a Non-Ajax portfolio. Is one better to have then the other? Would an Ajax one be better as the wait time is less?
I still dont know the difference between Ajax and non Ajax…
Ajax = Doesn’t require your web browser to “refresh” when it loads new content, Ajax can send or retrieve data from a web server without the server needing to “reload/refresh” from the client(you and your web browser in this case)
non-Ajax = the page needs to be refreshed to get new content, when you click on a link in a page you see the page actually reload, if the site setup properly most of the site contents cached(images css js) so its brief.its more complex than this but yeah
In General an ajax request is better because the load time for the user is reduced and you are also requesting less resources from your server (if the ajax script is written well of course)
