Hello again,

I've spent a bit of time looking through the JavaScript documentation, PHP documentation, and the API documentation but haven't been able to get any kind of return data from the API. I started by trying to use the example Roan provided in JavaScript and learned a bit more about function usage in JavaScript, but I'm still getting nothing back from wiktionary. Could someone provide me with a simple, working example that actually returns a value?

I've tried a number of different things, including the get_file_contents in PHP (which did echo a barebone representation of the page I loaded), but I've reverted back to the example Roan provided. Again, I'm trying to get the definition for a dynamically submitted word. Any parse-able format with the definition would work fine.

Here's the example I've been working with. The function works in either script block and I have moved it around trying to get the callback to actually DO something. So far, nothing happens.

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://en.wiktionary.org/w/api.php?format=json&callback=myFunc&action=opensearch&search=play">
function myFunc(str){

<script type="text/javascript" >

Thanks again,

This is probably the best solution.
