I am using jquery to send data to a php file using get.

                                <script>
                                function login(myform) {
                                        $.get('login.php',
                                        $(myform).serialize(),
                                        function(php_msg) {
                                                $("#login-scr").html(php_msg);
                                        });
                                }
                                </script>

Open in new window


The code passed the data just fine. On my login.php file after I validate there login I do 2 things.

1. If the login is incorrect I display the login page again with a error message. This works with no problems.

2. Or if login is success I set sessions then use a meta refresh tag to re-direct the visitor to the URL they were before login. The meta refresh is not working.

print "<meta http-equiv=\"refresh\" content=\"2;url=$_SESSION[uri]\"> \n";

Open in new window


Error reported from FireBug:


SyntaxError: syntax error
      

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="2;url=http://www.liveabo

jquery-1.9.1.js (line 611)

I don't think you can use a meta-refresh by ajax. The meta tag is only read on the initial page load. I think you should probably do the page reload entirely with javascript. For example:

function login(myform) {
                                        $.get('login.php',
                                        $(myform).serialize(),
                                        function(php_msg) {
                                                if (valid_login)
                                                     window.location.replace(url);
                                                else
                                                     $("#login-scr").html(php_msg);
                                        });
                                }

I was kinda thinking meta refresh was not supported.

On my php script if the login is valid what would I call back to the parent so it knows it's valid to perform the refresh?

there are a couple of ways to do that. The easiest way is for your php script to return a url if the login is successful and a web page if it is not.

so in the above, you could have something like this:

                                                if (php_msg.substring(0,4) == "http")
                                                     window.location.replace(php_msg);
                                                else
                                                     $("#login-scr").html(php_msg);

PERFECT!!!!! Now all I need to do is show a quick success message then re-direct. I should be able to figure that one out. This one is going into my tool belt as I experienced this on another project as well.

                                <script>
                                function login(myform) {
                                        $.get('login.php',
                                        $(myform).serialize(),
                                        function(php_msg) {
                                          if (php_msg.substring(0,4) == "http") {
                                             $("#login-scr").html('<span class="details-description"><br><font color=green>Login successfull. Loading please wait...</font><br></span>');
                                             $("#login-scr").delay(2000);
                                             window.location.replace(php_msg);
                                          } else {
                                             $("#login-scr").html(php_msg);
                                          }
                                        });
                                }

Sorry, the delay code did not work but the setTimeout did. Tested in firefox and Safari. On a mac here but IE "should" work the same.

                                <script>
                                function login(myform) {
                                        $.get('login.php',
                                        $(myform).serialize(),
                                        function(php_msg) {
                                          if (php_msg.substring(0,4) == "http") {
                                             $("#login-scr").html('<span class="details-description"><br><font color=green>Login successfull. Loading please wait...</font><br></span>');
                                             //$("#login-scr").delay(4000);
                                             setTimeout(function()
                                                {
                                                window.location.replace(php_msg)
                                                }
                                             ,2000);
                                          } else {
                                             $("#login-scr").html(php_msg);
                                          }
                                        });
                                }
                                </script>
