Advanced AJAX support

We have done a lot of conversions of pop-up based user interactions to more intuitive AJAX-based behaviour on Lovento. This is probably a somewhat incomplete and inaccurate list, but gives an idea how the user interaction has improved due to these changes:

  • Submitting events is now way easier. One can enter the name of the venue, the event takes places and list of matching venues will appear magically. It is however still possible to enter the basic information about the venue by hand. See our ass-kicking submit-event page.
  • Adding events to the list of favorites. Page does not need to be reloaded. Instant feedback.

  • Adding a user to the list of friends.

  • Removing a user from the friend list.

  • Ratings of special categories.

  • Checking if a username is already in use during sign up.

  • Removing a venue from the list of favorites.

  • When the country is changed in the drop-down box, the list of cities is automatically updated without reloading the page.

  • The XML-list of flickr-photos for cities/user galleries are loaded via AJAX and displayed by JavaScript
