Why AJAX functionality won’t work on a static site

An explanation of what AJAX is and why it doesn’t work on Strattic.

What Is AJAX?

AJAX stands for Asynchronous JavaScript And XML. It was designed to communicate with servers by sending and receiving data in a variety of formats. Some websites use AJAX to update a webpage without requiring a page refresh. Some examples of AJAX include “Load more” pagination, some form success messages, etc.
