$(td).click and ajax combination runs the php with the passed parameter, and then return the result from the php, this works perfect in some of my cases. But I need to send the parameter and runs the php and displays the php page result in a new tab in the browser, not in the same page where the ajax is called. the php page have many echos and create a webpage, but needs some parameters that are received from the ajax, like $(this).html(). How i can do that?

$("td").click(function() {
      var p = encodeURIComponent( $(this).html() );
      var key = "key" + new Date().getTime();
      var data = { "param":p, "key":key };
      var url = "/save_this_inside_a_SESSION_for_this_key.php";
      var success = function() {
      $.post(url, data, success);

Open in new window

$_SESSION[ $_POST["key"] ] = $_POST["param"];
echo "ok";
