I wish to ask how to build a real time control while a user attempt to register his website in a wordpress multisite installation. The control should check if the subdomain already exists while the user is typing it into the input field.

This control will involve a simple jquery function, executed while typing, that check all the existing subdomain in the wordpress database table.

Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thank you very much.

Searching on google I found this jquery script that, maybe, could be a starting point. But to tell the true, I don't know exactly how to connect this to the wp-signup.php file.

If I'm not in worng. The jquery function is executed on 'keyup' and check the data returned from the "scripts/db_check_url". What I'm missing is this "scripts/db_check_url" that will perform the database search.

Any suggestions? Thank you very much.

// css styles
.error {background-image:url('error.jpg');}
.success {background-image:url('success.jpg');}

//input textfield with an icon check
<input class="subdomain" type="text" value="" name="url">
<div id="icon-message" class="error"></div>

//jquery function
         var val=$(this).val();
