Hi Experts,

1. How to set variable in javascript from url?
2. How to set variable in javascript from POST variable?

For example:
I have my url: and POST cache_id = 180

I want to set my variable myproductid to 87 and mycacheid to 180.

<script language="javascript">
	var myproductid = 0;
	var mycacheid = 0;
	function savedata()
		var query = $.ajax({
			type: "POST",
			cache: false,
			url: "<?php echo site_url('/product/additem'); ?>",
			dataType: 'json',
			data: { productid: myproductid, cacheid: mycacheid},
			success: function(theresponse) {
				alert("ID: " + myproductid + "CACHE: " + myproductid);							
			error: function() {
				$("#response").html("AJAX request failed.");

Any suggestions?

Thanks before.
