Alright well my website has very little desire for ajax, I have a front page with 10 article listings. I use ajax currently to check the database for any new articles and then it reloads the div, that is pretty much the extent of my need. However I would like to put one final touch on it, that being that the div fades in...
So I was curious as to how to get that working, preferably without dabbling into jQuery, but I will if I absolutely have to.
hate to give a lazy answer but seeing as no-one else answered, jquery (as you probably know) is going to really optimize this whole process and make the ajax request and animation a piece of cake.
I appreciate that its beneficial to know how to do it without jquery, but unless you have a compelling reason, I would stick with the easier road.
