I have the following php script which is extracting the new feed from facebaook


$page_id = 'cnninternational';
$newsfeed = "";
if (isset($_GET['page_id']))
   $page_id  = $_GET['page_id'] ;
$access_token = 'xxxxxxxxxxxxx';
//Get the JSON
$json_object = file_get_contents('https://graph.facebook.com/'.$page_id.'/posts?access_token='.$access_token);
//Interpret data
$fbdata = json_decode($json_object);
$BTseparator = "\n"."BT"."\n"."http://";
$normalseparator = "\n"."http://";
$i = 0;
$newsfeed = $newsfeed."<table>";
foreach($fbdata->data as $item){
if (isset($item->message))
  $color = "#B2E0F0" ;
if ($i % 2 == 0)
  $color = "#B2E0F0";
} else {
  $color = "#E8F6FA";
 $newsfeed = $newsfeed. '<tr bgcolor="'.$color .'"><td>';
 if (strpos($item->message, $BTseparator ) !== false){
  $text = explode ($BTseparator, $item->message);
  $newsfeed = $newsfeed. $text[0] . '<br>';

        <script type='text/javascript'>
        $(function() {
          var start = function() {
        $( ".ui-widget-content" )
           .draggable({containment: "#main"},{ cursor: "move", cursorAt: { top: 56, left: 56 }, start:start })
           .resizable({animate: true},{helper: "ui-resizable-helper"});
        /*jQuery("#window3").tubeplayer({ jQuery.tubeplayer.min.js });*/
                $.get("facebook-parser.php", {}, function(response){
                woeid: true,
                unit: 'c',
                image: true,
                country: true,
                highlow: true,
                wind: true,
                humidity: true,
                visibility: true,
                sunrise: true,
                sunset: true,
                forecast: true,
                link: true
<div id="window1" class="ui-widget-content">
        <h3 class="ui-widget-header">&nbsp;Facebook</h3>
        <p id="window1content">Window's content is not set</p>
<div id="window2" class="ui-widget-content">
        <h3 class="ui-widget-header">&nbsp;Weather</h3>
<div id="window3" class="ui-widget-content">
        <h3 class="ui-widget-header">&nbsp;YouTube</h3>
<div id="window4" class="ui-widget-content">
        <h3 class="ui-widget-header">&nbsp;News</h3>
The Ajax function here is displaying the initial content in the div, but when I click the link inside it, it displays the result in main screen, also for some reason after adding this ajax I lost the resizable property, I cannot expand the div.
