The iBegin blog has posted some information about a handy little Ajax feature they’re offering up to the public for download – an Ajax feedback mechanism.
So a few weeks ago I was thinking how people are using our site, but I have no clue what their feelings are. Are the results good? Great? Craptastic? Repeat visitors are not a good measurement either – I used to visit Toronto.com a lot, but only because they were really the only game in town. Did I like their site? Not really … but I kept coming back out of necessity.
So we set out to build a quick and easy feedback mechanism. A little floater/popup that lets you quickly rate a page. All AJAX driven of course.
The module is simple to use (and alter) to adapt to the look and feel of your site and makes it simple to integrate into your site, especially if you’re using PHP. A script accompanies it to recieve the Ajax requests and plug it into your database to store the results.
