It seems that the Drupal Ajax API are comming a little un handy for my current project so i was trying to do the ajax request the good old way with actual Javascript.

I have this code


            type: "POST",
            dataType: 'json',
            data: grabValue(),
            url: urkl,
            success: function () {




What i am wondering is how should i link that URL value to my module page, so that my user_login hook receive the data sent via Ajax ?

Thanks for any help, Manu


For most functionality that you require with drupal, there is typically a module that already does what you are after or close to it.

I would recommend either:

Hope this helps

  • Then may I suggest you clarify your question? I read it like you are after a solution to allow users to login via AJAX on your site, is this not the case?

This tutorial (tough Drupal 6) helped me a lot http://viziontech.co.il/tutorial1?1309179897 .

The big piece that i was missing is that i needed a Hook_menu that countain my php script that will handle the ajax request, then in the ajax path i add the newly created link (from the Hook_menu).

Also the JS needed to be added to that specific module with a drupal_add_js for the ajax call back to be received. It took me a while to figure out but if i add the script via Theme.info file it behaves very oddly..
