I've got this code, but it's not correct since the parameters I'm posting aren't correctly yet.

var artistname = $("input#artistname").val();
            
            jQuery.post('get-albums.php',
            {parameterSentToServer1:'value', param2:'value2'},

I need the parameters replaced by the var artistname, I just can't figure it out.

In the PHP file it needs to be catched by: $artistname = trim($_POST['artistname']);

Someone help please

You only need to send artistname as parameter :

jQuery.post('get-albums.php',
{"artistname":$("#artistname").val()},

Open in new window
