php – jquery selection to post value – Education Career Blog

I am trying to use jquery to grab the contents of a div and pass it to a php script that emails it. So I need to use a $(‘#div’).html() and send that to a $_POST” value. Any ideas?


(From jQuery’s docs):

   type: "POST",
   //your PHP file
   url: "some.php",
   //passing contents $_POST'body' will be your body.
   data: "body=" + $('#div').html(),
   //msg is your PHP scripts' response
   success: function(msg){
     alert( "Data Saved: " + msg );


Or you may also want to try this:

    { body : $('#div').html() }, 
    function(msg) { 
        alert("Email was sent: " + msg);
