Calling an AJAX request implies of having another timeline on page
loading, like loading another page. AFAIK, it only posts something
again to a webpage, needing new queries and stuff to be loaded if you
need them.

You can assign $_SESSION variables, or use the $_POST variables to
load some info again if you need something pre-loaded for this AJAX

Hope it helps.
