AJAX & Template Tags

  • Erwin Gerrits


    This is my first dabble into AJAX so bear with me.

    I have in my template file a link with an onClick to a javascript funtion. The javascript function will, using AJAX, call an external php file to retrieve some data from a database and that php file will subsequently call a template tag to display the new data onto the template page.

    The problem is, is that the external php page has no access to buddypress/wordpress functions (or my template tags). It returns an error saying function soandso not found.

    Is there a wp_head() or something I need to call in the external php file to be able to access my template tag functions?

    I have the same issue, in part resolved but not at all.

    This is my experience and code:

    require_once ( $_SERVER["DOCUMENT_ROOT"] . '/social/site/wp-config.php');

    require_once ( ABSPATH . WPINC . '/pluggable.php');

    require_once ( BP_PLUGIN_DIR . '/bp-core.php');

    global $bp;


    with this I am able to save a wire message via ajax in the db. But I’m not able to make bp return me the “graphic” instance of the just saved wire post.

    Great! Thanks! I’ll noodle with this…
