Drupal Views are a fairly wonderful creation. They allow all kinds of usable, well…VIEWS, of your data in a Drupal site. They allow you to view your data either as a page or a block (or an RSS feed, etc), however one thing was was lacking was the ability to page content within a view block. The default view blocks provide you simply with a “more” link that will take you to the full blown page view. That was not working for us, or one of our clients and something has to give.
Introducing AJAX Views, a custom module written by Phase2 and contributed back to Drupal.org. This module allows you to specify a view block as paging via AJAX. It also provides a myriad of ways to theme these blocks and ajaxified pages. Drupal module development is challenging and incredibly flexible and it is also a large part of what makes the Drupal platform and community so special.
Give AJAX Views a try, tell us what you think.
