Hi I have not tried using this extension as I needed it prior to its release instead I wrote my own extension the location is here

If you need a tutorial for this, I have it written here.

Hi Gary

The location you point us to contains the xajax integration extension written by me, or at least a modified version of it. Is that right? Saying you have written your own is not entirely correct then.

Hi I had several problems with this one ( the original from kristof *g* ). Seems that nobody looks into the forum of the project, so I'll ask here. Might someone have a look at this: ?

<b>In short: I cannot get it to work together with starrating, but I'am not sure if its a bug in the xajax or in the starrating extension. Or if I do something wrong.</b>

Details here:
And here:

Thank you very much for any hint

There is a version that works with eZ publish 4.x in subversion . Instead of creating your own version why not join the community as a project member and help out?

Hi Nabil

I'm the author of the star rating extension and contribute to the xajax one. The errors appear to be in xajax which I believe have undergone some changes after the release of star rating.

Where did you get the version of the xajax extension from, projects, subversion of the main ez contributions site?

Hello Bruce. First of all great work! The starrating extension is very nice, when its working *g*

I got the xajax plugin from:
and I also tried the latest from the svn:

I also tried the "Hello World" example coming with ezxajax from the svn and it works perfectly. It seems to be the specific combination of xajax and starrating.

Any idea?

Thank you very much for any hint

I will also take a look tomorrow at the combination and try to fix if anything got broken. I'll keep you updated.

I've been able to fix some issues, patch is supplied at Bruce, feel free to incorporate it.

This post is quite old. Today still doesn't exists enough documentation about ajax with ezpublish. Looks like the developers don't like to share their knowledge about it.

- eZjscore extension -> excelent!

- eZstartrating extension -> amazing!

- eZxajax extension -> a very good idea!

- xajax_helloworld -> clearly self explained! (but doesn't work with ezpublish 4.x).

- That someone needs to write some code with ajax features -> Good Luck and Too much Fait!

Hi Hugo

I'll have a look at xajax_helloworld and fix any issues. I'll keep you updated.

For further instructions on how to program with xajax, the best source is the xajax documentation at

Hi again Hugo

I guess you are trying to use the xajax extension with eZ Publish 4. It was renamed though to ezxajax. The old version under the name xajax is not compatible with eZ Publish 4 afaik.

Please use the ezxajax and ezxajax_helloworld extensions from on eZ Publish 4.x.

Tuesday 08 December 2009 1:24:18 pm

I'd use both, xajax and ezxajax... One show me the entire page with the results inside <div id="container"></div>. The another one did not work at all... After many retry and retry and too many tests and errors, then i can successfully use ezjscore with:

jQuery.ez( 'ezjsctemplate::' + templateName ...

I must admit that it is an excelent solution but isn't well documented, sorry isn't documented at all, because you must decode the source to understand something.

The ezxajax extension is more easy and friendly but i can't make it work, i imagine that i was tired and didn't look further in the code.

Thank you very much for the topic answers.

Hi Hugo

If you explain me exactly which steps you followed in order to get ezxajax / ezxajax_helloworld installed, I'd be happy to tell you what you did wrong.
