Designing an attractive, user-friendly and interactive website is key to securing web traffic. WordPress and Ajax are two popular web development options to achieve this. While web users are aware of the features and uses of the WordPress system, Ajax technology is lesser known.

What is Ajax?

Ajax stands for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML, a technology that instantly adds life to the websites it is utilized in. It improves interaction between a webpage and its visitors by turning a static webpage into one that is responsive. With Ajax implemented, webpages can update only a selected region without reloading the entire page, allowing the visitor a smoother web experience.

Google maps uses the Ajax system

The best example of Ajax technology usage is Google Maps. By using the Ajax system, Google Maps only loads the portion of the map indicated by the user. Without the Ajax system, a user would have to wait for the entire map to load every time s/he clicks on a portion of the map. As a result of this interactive usability, Ajax is adopted by several web developers for their websites.

Ajax and WordPress themes

The latest WordPress version includes the Ajax technology for administration screens. It is most commonly used for instant updating in comments management, adding and deleting categories, posts, etc. Another area where the Ajax technology is featured is in WordPress themes. For a classic design featuring Ajax, you may wish to look here.
