Hi i want to read from a note.txt file, i don't understand how to even start doing that
Two possible ways
-) ajax - read it with php
-) custom plugins: file reader, csv, Json, call js
Depends on where is the file, on the server or at the user..

Currently the file is local but eventually i want the file to be server based. How do i got about with ajax?
but also could you point me to one of these plugins too?
What do you want to do with that file? Only reading its content or modify it?
If you want to read its content then the easiest way is using a custom plugin like load Json or csv.. in the plugin thread are examples how to do that.. <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

you don't need php to read a textfile with ajax.
yeah thank you very much i will look at the plugins, and if you do know of a tutorial using ajax, i know i don't need it for what i want to do now but I do have some ideas that would be possible with the php work
and thanks for the help big love
Hi me again :),
So i've been playing with AJAX, can it not return a value in preview mode? i'm accessing a .php file on a free hosting website "http://www.dailycrossword.site40.net/Sun.php" and when i use set text to ajax.lastdata it returns nothing is that because i'm trying it in preview mode?
Sorry think i answered my own question i hosted the game on and it returned a string but only the 'Title' the first word in the string is this because i've not formated the .php file incorrectly? When i added more to the first line it returned that so how do i read the next line?
