I have a lot more change's i'd like to make to webthumb so the last article (Adding AJAX to a website step by step) is now the start of the series. In this article will be taking front page of webthumb and making it live. The the stats and recent thumbnails will update in real time, making for a nice slick presentation.
I hope to release and article for each improvement I make to webthumb, giving everyone idea of whats involved in AJAXing a real website. But a series of articles won't cover everything you want to know about AJAX.
The focus in this new post is his method of grabbing the latest information from the server without a needless page reload. In this case, that means grabbing the latest thumbnails that have been created.
