You would think this would be one of the most common things to find a tutorial on, but I'm googling up a storm with absolutely no payoff.
I still haven't gotten around to learning how to do this, and I'm sure the concept would be easy if I did, but on the upside, the books ARE on order.
In the meantime, I would like to find a tutorial that shows me how to use jQuery similar to what this forum does with responses and the same as many comment systems, or even twitter for that matter. I want to submit a small 200 character text area and have it show up above the form instantly.
No, I'm not trying to create a social media site. Just a simple online task list for myself and I'd like to add the functionality to just spam it with entries and have them show up as I submit them. The PHP is easy, but I can't find a tutorial on how to do the ajax side.
