    Sup guys

    A buddy of mine is one if the best illustrators I know but he is not really familiar with web design. Our goal is to make a site where people can view his work and comment, like it (facebook) and transition to other pieces with each illustration set on a different page. The goal is to be able to do this with out reloading the header, footer or description box location, but fade in the text and do a slider influence transition to other illustrations. What comes to mind is an AJAX code set that will allow possibly a separate page that is a main and call each sub page. Overall I am lost in how or know what to look for in ideas of the code. Tips or what to look for would be great. Also would prefer this to be in JavaScript, jQuery or AJAX. Does anyone know what this is called, too?

    You could store the illustrations and descriptions in a database and use jQuery to $.get the content from a database and use fadeIn and fadeOut to create your transitional effect.

    I don't know where you'll find full code for something like that, but I'd create something like this myself if I had to, just to make sure that it worked for non-JS users and JS users alike.

    I thought of that but he wanted something he could maintain an he does very little coding. So I was planning to do a site that will be easy for him to throw in HTML and CSS direction

    You could always go the "upload field and a CKEditor/TinyMCE box" route. No HTML required. No CSS required. Just upload pic, add description, and off you go.

    Not quite sure you can do it with HTML and CSS while at the same time keeping it simple enough for him to add stuff.

    I'm confused. HTML and CSS for the admin or the main part of the site?

    if you want any kind of transitional effects, that rules out straight HTML and CSS. You're going to need something else, be it Javascript, Flash, or whatever. (Hint: avoid Flash.)

    If you're talking the admin, then the coding of the main part of the site would have nothing to do with it. And the upload field and TinyMCE/CKeditor idea referred specifically to the admin.

    Or am I wrong on all counts?

    I was just dealing with this stuff all day and it is really good to use for this exact purpose. If you don't want to go that route try "wix.com" it's all flash and no code.
