Ajax posting of DataPage
so we don't have to exit and re-enter to view changes and make small adjustments. Would love to have been able to stay where I am, make a change, view the effects and then continue on. I've wasted hours re-entering Datapages to get right back where I was....scrolling down a list and re-opening .....
Adding more clarification, in case it is not fully understood. It would be HUGELY helpful and time saving is you could post the datapage you are working on in the BRIDGE to the same location as the deployed page. PREVIEW button, when editing a datapage, appears to save the datapage in a temporary location in the database. It could help everyone if either the FINISH page did NOT close the edited datapage and then add a "CLOSE" button to the very end of options. Or, a button that saves the currently open and edited datapage in the BRIDGE to the same location as the deployed. I have one screen open with the BRIDGE and the page I'm editing. The other monitor has the LIVE website. I need to be able to make a small change in the BRIDGE and then immediately view the deployed datapage changes in the live site. The PREVIEW is not capable of showing what the final deploy page looks like. It has to be deployed. Big waste of time having to FINISH a datapage in the BRIDGE edit mode just to see how it looks in the deployed page and then have to reload the datapage in the Bridge to edit it again, and again.
Just so you know....this solution is not answering the problem I was trying to state. I'm referring to the AJAX posting of datapages IN THE CASPIO BRIDGE when an admin is editing the datapage that is deployed. I want to be able to post small edits and changes using ajax and NOT HAVING TO CLICK "FINISHED" on the datapage. I want to stay where I'm at, be able to see the edited datapage in the live site with live data AS IF I have clicked on "FINISH", but not exiting and going back to the list of datapage in the bridge. Every small edit forces a complete reload of the datapage in the BRIDGE for editing it. Preview DOES NOT provide an accurate view of how the page looks or function in the site with live data.
Just to followup, it is nice to have the Preview, but the preview is not embedded in my page with other CSS and fitting in the context of my site. I need the preview to be in my site. Having to FINISH a datapage you are working on, then see it in the site context, and then reopen the datapage all over again and get to where you left off is very burdensome. a FINISH AND STAY HERE button is what is needed or SAVE BUT DON'T EXIT. Bascially, your Preview button but make it real and live in posting the page.
