If you are beginner then this post is for you. For showing the new content on page without refresh we will use jQuery and server side php. In this article, i will demonstrate to show the latest content from server without refreshing the page. This is useful in case of showing like unlike button , showing latest content , changing the data on user request.

In this tutorial we will take example of Changing content of element on click and check status.

Let’s start the tutorial with steps:

Step 1: Create a html file

First step is to create the html and setup basic elements of page.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>

<h2>Change content without reloading page - Readerstacks.com</h2>

<div id="content">
  <h1>This is a dummy content, i am going to change it</h1>
  <p>Let's change it with jquery click</p>
</div>
<div class="footer">
  <button id="load_btn">Load New </button>
</div>
</body>
</html>

Step 2: Add jQuery

So, we are going to use jQuery to update the content

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.6.0.min.js" integrity="sha256-/xUj+3OJU5yExlq6GSYGSHk7tPXikynS7ogEvDej/m4=" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>

Step 3: Add jQuery code to change content

We have created content and included jQuery , so now it’s time to apply the logic

<script>
$(function(){
  $("#load_btn").click(function(){
        $("#content").load("http://localhost/refresh_page_jquery/new_dynamic_content.php");
   });
});
</script>

Here, we added click event to load_btn and using load method of query to change the content. we can also append some fragment of loaded content using below example

$( "#content" ).load( "ajax/test.html #new_content" );

Using get or post method to update the content

<script>
$(function(){
   
   $("#load_btn").click(function(){
       $.get('http://localhost/refresh_page_jquery/new_dynamic_content.php',function(data){
         $('#content').html(data);
       })  
   });
  
});
</script>
