I'm trying to offer a feedback function on a website I'm working on, but want to be able to capture the current HTML on the screen, so wrote:-

    function htmlEscape(str) {
        return String(str).replace(/&/g, '&amp;').replace(/"/g, '&quot;').replace(/'/g, '&#39;').replace(/</g, '&lt;').replace(/>/g, '&gt;');
    }


    function commentPage() {
        $.ajax({
          type: "POST",
          url: 'feedback.php',
          data: {     'txtHTML'       : htmlEscape(document.documentElement.outerHTML) },
          success: function(retHtml, textStatus) {
                    alert(retHtml);
                    },
          error: function (xhr, textStatus, errorThrown) {
                    showDialog("Failed - " + errorThrown ? errorThrown : xhr.status);
                    }
          });

Open in new window


But all I get back is 'Forbidden'.

If I replace the line
htmlEscape(document.documentElement.outerHTML)

Open in new window

with
"Test"

Open in new window

The the "Test" is passed successfully as a post.

If I debug the line:-
htmlEscape(document.documentElement.outerHTML)

Open in new window


Then I can see the escaped html code fine, its just not submitting.

Can anyone advise what is going wrong?

Thank you

Hi,

Can you try the following?

    function htmlEscape(str) {
        return String(str).replace(/&/g, '&amp;').replace(/"/g, '&quot;').replace(/'/g, '&#39;').replace(/</g, '&lt;').replace(/>/g, '&gt;');
    }


    function commentPage() {
        var htmltext;
        htmltext=htmlEscape(document.documentElement.outerHTML);
       
        $.ajax({
          type: "POST",
          url: 'feedback.php',
          data: {     'txtHTML'       : htmltext },
          success: function(retHtml, textStatus) {
                    alert(retHtml);
                    },
          error: function (xhr, textStatus, errorThrown) {
                    showDialog("Failed - " + errorThrown ? errorThrown : xhr.status);
                    }
          });
