Does anything need to be done to allow for ajax submittions using the GuestEntries plugin? https://github.com/pixelandtonic/GuestEntries

I'm following the method used here for Contact form, it submits fine and returns success but nothing shows up in the DB?


in chrome the request looks right?

Request URL: http://familiar.dev/
Request Method: POST
Request Payload:

any ideas?

  • What's the response look like in Chrome? Anything weird getting logged in craft/storage/runtime/logs?

  • So i think i figured it out. my payload was sent as json instead as regular form data. I reformatted and everything is working! Commented Aug 23, 2014 at 23:40

So looks like i found the answer. My javascript was submitting the data as json instead of as regular form data. I reformatted and it works as expected.
