wp_ajax action responds with 0

September 23Hits:1

I'm writing a plugin. There is a button, that triggers an ajax-request to an action I added in my plugin page:

Head of my plugin PHP file:

add_action('wp_ajax_update_nav_items', 'update_nav_items' ); add_action('wp_ajax_nopriv_update_nav_items', 'update_nav_items' );  wp_enqueue_script( 'addItemToNav', plugin_dir_url( __FILE__ ) . 'js/navFunctions.js', array( 'jquery', 'json2' ) ); wp_localize_script( 'addItemToNav', 'menuItems', array(     // URL to wp-admin/admin-ajax.php to process the request     'ajaxurl'          => admin_url( 'admin-ajax.php' ),     // generate a nonce with a unique ID "myajax-post-comment-nonce"     'postCommentNonce' => wp_create_nonce( 'update_nav_items-nonce' ),     'action' => 'update_nav_items'     ) ); function update_nav_items() {      // Testing stuff      $response = json_encode( array( 'response' => 'success', 'html' => 'some value' ) );     ob_clean();     print_r( $response );     echo json_encode( $response );      die(); } 

My JavaScript which triggers:

var data = {     action: 'update_nav_items',     postCommentNonce : menuItems.postCommentNonce,     menuitems: JSON.stringify(itemtest) };  jQuery.ajax({      url: menuItems.ajaxurl,      data: data,       type: 'post',     dataType: 'json',     success: function( response ) {         console.log(response);     } });  

In the browser console, the request is sent to the correct url, including following parameters:

action  update_nav_items menuitems   {"glossary":{"title":"example glossary","GlossDiv":{"title":"S","GlossList":{"GlossEntry":{"ID":"SGML","SortAs":"SGML","GlossTerm":"Standard Generalized Markup Language","Acronym":"SGML","Abbrev":"ISO 8879:1986","GlossDef":{"para":"A meta-markup language, used to create markup languages such as DocBook.","GlossSeeAlso":["GML","XML"]},"GlossSee":"markup"}}}}} postCommentNonce    0cee7325b3 

(menuitems is just for testing with correct JSON)

What I get as response is 0, so there seems to be a problem with the action. I just don't find it. I already tried adding actions also in my functions.php, it's still not working.

Anyone have a clue?


Your AJAX Requests requires an JSON to be returned. But I think your function doesn't return valid JSON.

Haven't tested it, but this function should work:

function update_nav_items() {
    // Testing stuff
    $response = json_encode( array( 'response' => 'success', 'html' => 'some value' ) ); // first JSON encode

    die(json_encode( $response )); // second JSON encode

For testing it, you can call the URL manually and have a look on the returned string, whether it's valid JSON or not.

Change your wp_localize_script-Call to the right Action:

wp_localize_script( 'addItemToNav', 'menuItems', array(
    // URL to wp-admin/admin-ajax.php to process the request
    'ajaxurl'          => admin_url( 'admin-ajax.php' ),
    // generate a nonce with a unique ID "myajax-post-comment-nonce"
    'postCommentNonce' => wp_create_nonce( 'update_nav_items-nonce' ),
    'action' => 'wp_ajax_update_nav_items'

As 'action' you currently Input the function Name, but that is wrong. Your registered Action to call the function has an different Name.

Thanks for all the help, unfortunately I don't have enough time to figure out what isn't working (customer tapping feet). All suggestions did'nt work, so I'm going the "normal" (ugly) way of reading out $_POST.

Thanks for the efford.
