storing json.html value (generated within jQuery code), in a PHP $ variable


Recommended Posts

I have a submit.php file that includes the following jQuery code:

<script> [...] request.done(function( json ) { jQuery('input[name=thumbnail-url]').val(json.thumbnail_url); jQuery('input[name=job_title]').val(json.title); jQuery('textarea[name=htmlcode]').val(json.html); [...] </script>

I need to remove


and pass the "json.html" value into a PHP variable in another php file (functions.php).

The code in the functions.php file is already there.

The thing i need to do (and i am seriously struggling with it) is placing the value of json.html into a $phpvariable that i can then call from the function.php file.

Do you need any more info for this issue?

Is this not already going through PHP? That request.done suggests you're doing AJAX...

the input/job_title and input/thumbnail-url they both already go through php because these are real visible fields on the form that gets physically populated on the fly. 

The other field instead textarea/htmlcode is hidden hence cannot be populated on the fly and the value currently is not passed through php. 

i have a receiving $phpvar now in the file functions.php that will need to get the value from this submit.php form that currently is not getting cause it is not passed. 

i checked the http header request and i am struggling in finding a way to pass this value.

location.href = 'foo.php?data='+json.html


maybe you need to escape that somehow. Or use AJAX.

hi Chhorn, thanks for this. 

sorry but i am pretty new to coding. 

the two lines that you wrote must be written exactly like this or i need to replace something in there? e. g. foo.php and var_dump?! 

additionally both of these lines must be included in the submit.php file or some of them in another file? 

last thing, what would i need to escape, and what does that mean? 

Thanks a lot, hope in the near future will be able to avoid these silly questions...
