Quick glance at the doc link you provided, I would say you just need to set the name config property to document.title

Example using step #3 in doc:

    // exclude CSS class
    exclude: ".noExl",
    name: document.title

In Topic: problem with the text fields

At face value the code above looks okay. If it's working without the 3rd field, my first guess is you don't have a column named "kont" in your database table (e.g. it doesn't exist, not spelled the same, etc.) or maybe it's not the right field type (e.g. you made it a date or int type and it's supposed to be text, or maybe you set it to be a certain length e.g. varchar(10) but attempting to put a 20 char value into it).

Do you have error reporting turned on? Are you getting an error(s)?

Wow. You must have a very interesting interview process.

What can I say, some people are just more.. adventurous.. than others.

You know how like if a question was something like "write some code to output 1 to 100" and you just put

echo "1 to 100";
It's totally not what they really wanted, but technically not wrong. So maybe they say "wow, thanks for wasting our time.." or maybe they say "wow! this dude has a sense of humor, we'll hire him!".

I've gotten answers like that from job candidates, and it has indeed influenced me giving them the thumbs up. For example if I could tell from their other answers that they know their shit, then I'm down for seeing answers like this. But if I can tell from their other answers they don't know wtf they are doing.. I'll probably think they really thought that's what the ask was, and I'd facepalm.

As someone who is part of the hiring process for devs, I've seen candidates go both ways.

Anyways, TL;DR: It wasn't meant to be a serious answer, and I prefaced it as such!

Well you know, I did preface it with:

or at face value you could could go the "cheap GIGO answer" route, accept input as full string and just sort it
