A Small Change To My Blog
I’m still using WordPress. I’m just using a theme-based enhancement on top of it. I guess it’s sort of a ‘shell’ on top of WordPress. It is called "K2". If you keep reading this post, it will get a little geeky. You’ve been warned. K2 adds a few features to the WordPress blogging experience.
AJAX – it allows your browser to talk to my server in a bit of a different way. It allows you to see changes to a web page without having to reload the entire page. If you use Windows Live Hotmail, you’ve seen AJAX in use.
- Live commenting – lets you leave a comment without having to reload the page.
- Livesearch – allows you to type your search in the box and instantly have the results shown to you.
- Rolling Archives – a navigation system designed specifically for K2 which lets you navigate through archives and search results without having to reload the entire page again.
These are probably the features that are most noticeable and beneficial to you, my loyal readers. There are others that work behind the scenes that make it easier for me to, say, add that cool image of the road I live on at the top of my blog.
