[Solved] Requesting content without reloading the page [closed]

Try this: http://shaquin.tk/experiments/select-ajax2.html.


<select name="select-choice" id="select-choice">
    <optgroup label="News">
        <option value="feature">Feature</option>
        <option value="current">Current</option>
        <option value="research">Research</option>
    <optgroup label="Archive">
        <option value="archive">Archive</option>
    <optgroup label="Video">
        <option value="video">Video</option>
    <optgroup label="Submit">
        <option value="story">Story</option>
        <option value="event">Event</option>
<div id="article">Please select an article to view.</div>


var origText="";
$(document).ready(function() {
    origText = $('#article').text();
    $('select').on('change', changed);
function changed(e) {
    $('#article').html('<span class="loading">Loading...</span>');
    $('#article').load('content.php', $.param({0: e.target.value, 1: origText}));


$selected = $_GET[0];
$articles = array(
        '' => $_GET[1],
        'feature' => 'Feature article goes here',
        'current' => '<p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, denique laetare ... se est Apollonius.</p>',
        'research' => 'You selected <code>research</code>',
        'archive' => 'Archives',
        'video' => '<div style="font-size:48pt;font-weight:bold;font-style:italic;background:red;text-align:center;padding:20px;margin:10px;border-radius:20px;-moz-border-radius:20px;-webkit-border-radius:20px;">Video</div>',
        'story' => 'Submit a story',
        'event' => 'Submit an event'
$article = $articles[$selected];
echo $article;

CSS (optional):

body {
    background: #ccc;
    text-align: center
#article {
    padding: 30px;
    margin: 20px;
    text-align: left;
    background: #eee;
    text-shadow: 1px 1px #fff;
    text-shadow: 0 0 3px #fff;
    border-radius: 8px;
    -moz-border-radius: 8px;
    -webkit-border-radius: 8px;
.loading {
    text-transform: uppercase;
    font-size: 15pt;
    text-shadow: 1px 1px #f00, 1px 2px #f00, 2px 2px #f00, 3px 3px #f00;

In the PHP, you would probably want to fetch the text from a database: PHP – MySQLi.
