Hi HermioneGranger welcome to the forum

I’m confused as to how you envision AJAX being involved. AFAICT this is simply an expiring token being inserted into a form, the intent being to help ensure the form is being submitted by an authorized user.


  • I log in as me.
  • An expiring token is generated for my session.
  • When I go to a form to edit my account details, the token let’s the script know it’s me and not someone else.
  • If someone else tries to edit my details the token either doesn’t match or has expired and my account details won’t be edited.

How does what you want to do differ from this? In particular, the AJAX part.

@Mittineague has replied to you, and you haven’t responded to his questions.

If you want help, then I suggest you clarify your question (rather than simply bumping the thread, which we don’t allow).

Actually I have confusion if I not add token function in my ajax form then anybody make simple form and do login on my website, So I want to protect this in this manner that my ajax url always accept my eebsite request and it only possible when we add token inside form.
If token of form(index.php) == token of ajax(call_ajax.php) then login/insert/update etc else {error : invalid tolen}
This is I want to say…

Sir in my post the code is correcf when we use PHP on same page of HTML page but what we do to same sdd this in Ajax Function ?

So what have you tried? I don’t see any AJAX. And within the AJAX response you can send additional debug information about what you have and what you got.

@chorn yes, because I dont know how i implement Ajax with CSRF , Please help to make this function

Fortunately or unfortunately as the case may be, there is no “one way” to write an AJAX function.

A crude explanation of AJAX could be “instead of the browser sending a request / receiving a response, JavaScript does”.

IMHO a good place to start is with some basic examples to get a feel for what can be done and how it’s done. eg.

Once you get something simple to work it should be relatively easy to send along whatever form input values you want.
