    I have been working on a website for a while now, it's an interest of mine and they are the biggest website on the internet for this particular interest. I do quite a bit of coding work, free of charge, because i enjoy it. Unfortunately they have decided they want to use AJAX to load every page!!

    I have given them the usual reasons not to use it e.g. back button. bookamrking etc. but they are insisting on using it. They are using it because they won't have to load the header, sidebar, nav etc. more then once. They are convinced it's a brilliant idea but i know they are jumping on the AJAX bandwagon. I really don't want them to do this but they are not listening to me and they are convinced they know best.

    Basically I was wondering if anyone could provide some ideas to try and make them change their minds before they do this?!?!

    Thanks

    1. It is completely reliant on Javascript.
    2. It won't work on most past, some current, and some future browsers.
    3. It is inaccessible.

    Thanks for the quick reply filburt! Yeah i have tried that, they say they will keep a non-js version aswell and that the target audience is not disabled. I have tried to explain that accessibility is not just about disabled users but they just ignore it :angry::angry:

    Just explain the amount of work it will take to restructure the site to accomodate their specifications. If they continue to persist put a price tag on it, or refer them to another developer who will probably charge much more than you would.
