    I am building a site with a flash header. The links are in the flash. When someone clicks a link I only want the bottom part of the page to change. I know this can be done with frames but I want the entire page to scroll and not just the bottom half. I can use php include to load a separate page in a table cell, but then the flash still has to reload when you go to a different page. Does anyone know how to do this?

    Sounds like something that you could perhaps use Ajax for.

    Yes, this would be a job for AJAX. However, it would be much better if you did not use Flash for your navigation, unless your entire site is meant to be in Flash. There's practically nothing important you can achieve in a Flash navigation that can't be achieved in regular XHTML/CSS/JS

    Agreed. However, the correct term here would probably be closer to AHAH instead - you're not really sending queries.

    Don't forget that Flash links are not Search Engine follow-able, that some systems require you to click once in order to activate the flash movie, and some computers may not have Flash at all.

    Regarding table cells - does this mean you're using table layouts? This should better go. Just a premature tip. If not, that would be great. (Excuse my shameless crusade efforts.)

    Well, maybe AJAH, since the Javascript component is still sitting around. And in a well-formed document, the H can just as easily be an X. So you're back to AJAX Besides, at this point, AJAX has become a standard term for `something that talks to the server and does something on the client without a page reload'. Even with push connections based on Flash and iframe trickery, I think at this point they qualify as AJAX.
