hi i want to post variables to a page via ajax to get result from my database depenting my post value
 
so my ajax is:
 

var clickval = clickelement.value;
var dataval = "city=" + clickval;

$.ajax({
type: 'POST',
url: "*MY PAGE SMART URL*", // e.g. http://my_domain/my_page....
data: dataval,
dataType: 'text', //or json, i try both
complete: function(data, status){

alert(data.responseText);

}

});

 
and in php page: 

$getcity = $input->post->city;
echo "value = ".$getcity;

just to show my post value...
 
and my alert is "value = ".
$getcity is empty and $input has no value inside and it seems like post is never be done, but i have no error in my console...
can anyone help me?

Have a read here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/225-how-to-work-with-ajax-driven-content-in-processwire/

It would be good to use $config->ajax; (or wire('config')->ajax if within a function

Welcome to ProcessWire and the forums

Edit:

Your code is probably just an example but you need to sanitize your inputs before saving them and entitiy encode them if you are going to be echoing them back to the user immediately

Edit 2:

      Hi,
      I'm really struggling with this as it's something not in my wheelhouse. I'm creating a blog style page (a grid of cards) which has attributes.
      I have a snip of javascript which grabs values from checkboxes which are put into a value like the below:
      ?content=static_video&channel=facebook-ads_instagram-ads
      document.querySelector("form").onsubmit=ev=>{ ev.preventDefault(); let o={}; ev.target.querySelectorAll("[name]:checked").forEach(el=>{ (o[el.name]=o[el.name]||[]).push(el.value)}) console.log(location.pathname+"?"+ Object.entries(o).map(([v,f])=> v+"="+f.join("_")).join("&") ); document.location.href = location.pathname+"?"+ Object.entries(o).map(([v,f])=> v+"="+f.join("_")).join("&"); } As I'm currently refeshing the page on button click with those values the end result includes the location but can easily remove this.
      I then use this value in "input->get" to get the values which I then append to a find() rule. See code below:
      $selector = "template='adbank_pages',sort=published,include=all,status!=hidden"; // Get the channel and content inputs $channel = $input->get->channel; $content = $input->get->content; if($channel){ // Grab the channel string, explode into an array for checkbox checking and then replace _ with | to create or rules in the selector. $chanArray = explode("_", $channel); $chan = $channel = str_replace('_', '|', $channel); $selector = $selector .= ",ab_channels=$chan"; } if($content){ // Grab the content string, explode into an array for checkbox checking and then replace _ with | to create or rules in the selector. $contArray = explode("_", $content); $cont = $content = str_replace('_', '|', $content); $selector = $selector .= ",ab_content=$cont"; } if($input->get){ // If a valid input result $all = $pages->find($selector); } }else{ // If no input show them all $all = $page->children("template='adbank_pages',sort=-published,include=all,status!=hidden"); } $items = $all->find("limit=12"); // Limit the output and use pagination As mentioned above I currently refresh the page to adjust the $selector filter within the $all with a fallback $all if there are no results.
      I know I need to use AJAX to filter the content without refresh but I am really struggling with the set up. I have read multiple posts including the original by Ryan but still confused.
      If anyone can direct/help on this it would be appreciated.
      Thank you

      Hello! There was a need to rewrite the code written with jquery into vanilla js. I have little js code on my site and I see no reason to include a library such as jquery 🙂
      $('.progress-wrap .dot').on('click', function () { let $this = $(this) let stepValue = $this.attr('data-step') $this.closest('.progress-wrap').find('.bar').css('width', stepValue + '%') $this.siblings('.dot').removeClass('is-current') $this.addClass('is-active is-current') $this.prevAll('.dot').addClass('is-active') $this.nextAll('.dot').removeClass('is-active') $('.process-panel-wrap').removeClass('is-active') $('.step-title').removeClass('is-active') if (stepValue === '0') { $('#signup-panel-1, #step-title-1').addClass('is-active') } else if (stepValue === '25') { $('#signup-panel-2, #step-title-2').addClass('is-active') } else if (stepValue === '50') { $('#signup-panel-3, #step-title-3').addClass('is-active') } else if (stepValue === '75') { $('#signup-panel-4, #step-title-4').addClass('is-active') } else if (stepValue === '100') { $('#signup-panel-5, #step-title-5').addClass('is-active') } })

      Hello,
      I'm trying to edit the field of a page with a value from a javascript fetch post request but I can't get the
      file_get_contents("php://input") or
      $_POST value in my PHP file.
      I created a `update` template and a `update` page (to allow access from fetch request and avoid 404/403/... errors) containing this code :
      $data = file_get_contents('php://input'); echo $data; # test edit the page field with random value #$home = $pages->get("/"); #$home->of(false); #$home->testfield = "test value"; #$home->save(); # test fetch response with random value #echo "test fetch response"; That I fetch request with my client javascript like this :
      fetch('/update', { method: 'POST', body: 'test' }) .then(function(response) { return response.text(); }) .then(function(data) { console.log(data); }) .catch(error => console.log('error')) } The field edit works fine and I get the test response from the `update` file but I can't get the posted value, I only get `<empty string>`. It is working fine outside of ProcessWire so I guess this is related to how PW handle $_POST ?
      I found this post where it seems to be working :
       
      Is there any way to get post value from javascript fetch request? What am I doing wrong?
       
      Thank you

      Hi 👋
      Anyone else having this problem?
      Requirements:
      - Repeater (matrix & normal) with mutlilanguage fields (text, textarea…) 
      - Backend language set to something other than default (ie. German) 
      Reproduce:
      - Add a new repeater Item (ajax, I found no way to possible to disable it with matrix)

      (Notice how the default language tab is active instead of the backend language…)
      - Write something into the (default language) field
      - Try to save, if field is required, this will not work. If not required, then when reloading, the content will be inside the backend language field, instead of the default language field who was (presumably) active
      Analysis:
      When  loading  a new repeater element with ajax, the default langue tab is active, but the backend language inputfield is visible (with no visual indication). When writing into the field, it will populate the backend language. When manually clicking on the default language tab (which is already active), the field will switch to the actual default language field (which is [now] empty) (that can now be populated…)
      Also Notice, the labels of the elements to be added are in default language as well instead of the translated label (images instead of Bilder)…
      ProcessWire 3.0.148, Profields 0.0.5…
      Is it my system configuration, or does anyone else have the same issue? This is a screen recording of the problem:

      Hello,
      this module can publish content of a Processwire page on a Facebook page, triggered by saving the Processwire page.
      To set it up, configure the module with a Facebook app ID, secret and a Page ID. Following is additional configuration on Facebook for developers:
      Minimum Required Facebook App configuration:
      on Settings -> Basics, provide the App Domains, provide the Site URL, on Settings -> Advanced, set the API version (has been tested up to v3.3), add Product: Facebook Login, on Facebook Login -> Settings, set Client OAuth Login: Yes, set Web OAuth Login: Yes, set Enforce HTTPS: Yes, add "https://www.example.com/processwire/page/" to field Valid OAuth Redirect URIs. This module is configurable as follows:
      Templates: posts can take place only for pages with the defined templates. On/Off switch: specify a checkbox field that will not allow the post if checked. Specify a message and/or an image for the post.
      Usage
      edit the desired PW page and save; it will post right after the initial Facebook log in and permission granting. After that, an access token is kept.
       
      Download
      PW module directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/auto-fb-post/ Github: https://github.com/kastrind/AutoFbPost   Note: Facebook SDK for PHP is utilized.
