Subject: Plugin semantic
Hi,

is someone using the plugin "semantic" who can tell me what is meant by the "AJAX Service" described on the plugin page?

Regards Juergen

This refers to the standard way of handling an ajax call in dokuwiki by means of the AJAX_CALL_UNKNOWN event:  https://www.dokuwiki.org/devel:event:ajax_call_unknown

As way of explanation.  This technique does away with the need to have a standalone script to do the work of the ajax call.  The call is handled through an event that triggers an event handler, i.e. a function in an action plugin.  This technique has the advantage of being very secure.  But truthfully, I don't know what the plugin author means by the exposeWebService option.

Thank you very much!
This is exactly the problem that you don't know exactly what the author actually means. The description is by far not detailed enough, although the plugin seems to do a good job.
