View Full Version : Loading exnternal pages into div
I've been searching the net for a few hours now for a js that i can use <a href="http://www.sitename.com/#content/home">Home</a> load into a div, but i cant seem to find one, anyone got any ideas? or good links to any.

Not a good idea.
A full HTML page will have <html> and <head> and <script> and <style> and <body> tags that will not work if plopped into a <div>.
You *might* get away with the <script> and <style> tags (but you might not! if they conflict with styles and script already in your page!) but the <html>, <head>, and <body> tags (and probably others) would be illegal and pure poison in the <div>.
You *might* be able to strip out everything from the page except the text *between* (but no including) the <body> and </body> tags, but it could also be pure luck if it works.
Finally, you can *NOT* do this if the page you are attempting to load is in another domain. That's not allowed. Period.
No it not if you dont put them in the external page.

Well, sure... If *YOU* have control over all the external pages, then it's TRIVIAL!
var http = (window.XMLHttpRequest != null )
? new window.XMLHttpRequest()
: new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
http.open( "GET", "urlOfSomeOtherPage.html", false );
http.send( null );
document.getElementById("SomeDiv").innerHTML = http.responseText;
(That's doing the load synchronously. You could also do it async, with only a tiny bit more work.)
