[nycphp-talk] Wordpress & Ajax

I was going to use $.ajax, but I thought $.post looked prettier.  What I'm 
doing with this is very simple.  It's just return and success/failure code 
via xml.

Margaret,

Your best bet for jQuery AJAX is to use the $.ajax function to route
your asynchronous communications.  All you need to do is include the
main jQuery file and then define your $.ajax function(s) wherever
appropriate.  The function has inbuilt success & error methods which
capture your returned stuff from PHP and allow you to pass it through
into the DOM.

See here for comprehensive documentation:
http://api.jquery.com/jQuery.ajax/
