Themes vs. Form Functionality (AJAX style changes without page refresh)

  • It's occurred to me more than once that KISS applies when it comes to firewalls.  You just never know when you're going to be stuck in a bad spot trying to make interface changes from Lynx!  ::)

    That said though, rules re-ordering especially could do with a little form submit-without-page-refresh love, with or without eye-candy.  Not a task for a weak at heart, and I'm not even thinking it's a priority to anyone per se, but having deployed 5 of these things in such a small amount of time, I'm certainly warming up to the idea in a hurry.

    I guess I'm curious if anyone here is familiar with AJAX-ish type pages.  I'm certainly not suggesting we make a UI that is all effects-ridden, but there are some UI functionality improvements that I'm certain would be welcome.  The topic comes from the pondering of whether one could make an "AJAX Theme" and if things got messy and you had to use an older browser for some reason, just switch themes, perhaps even from ssh.

    I've had 3 glasses of wine, I'm taking cough syrup with codine, I've had a rough day, and it's fat tuesday (at least for 45 more mins anyway), so if coherancy and courtesy are lacking here, my apologies.  :-X
