I want to create a subscribe form that uploads the usual details but instead of diverting to a new page, it simply updates without reloading. Something like the registration for this forum (where you get the spinner) but instead it just returns some info and jQuery can hide the form and show a "Congrats" message.
Any ideas of who has done this before or some code I can grok?
No suggestions for this? I would rather just update a DIV rather than get diverted to a whole new screen.
Hi stinhambo, you'll be pleased to know we're posting a guide on how to do this some time in the next week or so. Keep an eye out on the blog for the full article.
Wow what super timing! I think I'll RSS your blog. I'm surprised I haven't already!
I assume you have to do some recoding to the back end for this to happen?
Waiting with baited breath!
Apologies for the delay, a clever customer of ours is working on the article, so it should come together soon but I can't make any promises on exactly when it will arrive.
I'll be patient don't worry!
I wonder if your clever customer has any experience with ExpressionEngine?...
Sorry guys, there has been a delay in getting this done with the author, but we're still onto it.
Any luck with the Ajax submission form article yet?
Apologies for the delay on this, the original customer who was keen to write it up got too busy and hasn't had a chance to get back to this. We'll look into a few other options real soon and try and get this added to the site.
Leevi is working on a solution for this now. Pretty sure he'll share the love when he's done.
Awesome to hear, thanks Wayde. For anyone not familiar with Newism, they are the CSS and XHTML gurus who built the new site, so you know it's going to be useful. In fact, Wayde even designed this very forum.
Looking forward to seeing what Leevi comes up with.
Any news regarding this? :-)
I'll be writing an article about implementing ajax form submission as part of our "Building Campaign Monitor" blog series.
Although the method will likely be tied to ExpressionEngine and jQuery I'll add a couple of tips for making the script more generic as well.
Was this article ever written?
This would help me greatly.
At this stage, we don't have the article. We did have an outside author working on this, but it was not able to be completed.
Leevi from Newism (above) is still looking at what is possible from an ExpressionEngine side of things.
Count me in as another one in need of this... perhaps someone could post a solution here in the forums? - seems no ones figured it our for eight months :(
Any word on this yet?
I need an AJAX submission solution. Where are we with a tutorial or writeup on the subject? Cheers.
Thanks for the continued requests guys. You'll be pleased to know we're putting the finishing touches on some sample code and we'll be sharing it on the blog next week.
Thanks for your patience on this guys, we've just published the sample code to turn any regular subscribe form into an AJAX based form here:
I am getting the following error "Please enter a valid email address" no matter what I do I have added the code in between the 2 comments as shown in the documentation. Am I missing something. I can post my code if need be
