Fancy Quotes With jQuery, AJAX & CSS

A Fancy Quote System

div > #topPart

IE6 does not support the min-height property. It also incorrectly interprets height as specifying minimum height.

provide both in the #topPart rules and later set height to auto for browsers that support the > CSS selector. As IE6 does  not understand this operator, it is left with a height behaving like min-height and ignoring the original one.

The quote manager explained

PHP generates the quote list by running an SQL query against the database, and selecting all the quotes. This data is also passed to the JavaScript front end with the help of the fillData() JS function.

Replacing fonts with Cufon

jQuery handles all the user interactions with the quote rating system. It shows the quote in full view, issues the replacement of the fonts with Cufon and handles the voting process.

$.post() – The $.post() method loads data from the server using a HTTP POST request.


URL Required. Specifies the url to send the request to
data Optional. Specifies data to send to the server along with the request
function(data,status,xhr) Optional. Specifies a function to run if the request succeeds
Additional parameters:

  • data – contains the resulting data from the request
  • status – contains the status of the request (“success”, “notmodified”, “error”, “timeout”, or “parsererror”)
  • xhr – contains the XMLHttpRequest object

$.post(‘vote.php’,{,vote:value},function(data){ }; //handles the AJAX requests to vote.php and updates the interface if necessary.
