I would like to make multiple Ajax calls from my index.html.

One call comes from $(document).ready() function. Second one is invoked from .on("click") event outside the $(document).ready() loop.

Unfortunately, the second call seemingly takes success callback from the first call. I tested this by calling a.php in first call and b.php in second call. Both calls end up in a.php, and both have identical parameters. Is there a way to make this work in Craft?

  • From your description, this sounds more like a JavaScript issue than a Craft CMS issue. Could you post a code snippet to better describe what you're trying to achieve? – Martin Spain Aug 11 '20 at 15:50

    I’m voting to close this question because it's not related to Craft. – Ian Aug 11 '20 at 22:15

The problem seems related to my structure. Yii expects certain controller name, and since I only used a default naming convention in a single controller, Yii keeps calling this controller only.

The problem is that I have no idea how to structure my plugin correctly. https://craftcms.com/docs/2.x/plugins/controllers.html#posting-to-controller-actions-with-javascript doesn't work for me and 3.x documentation doesn't mention it at all.

  • I would recommend using pluginfactory.io to create your initial plugin framework, which will give you a good 'best practice' outline of how a Craft plugin should be structured. It's also worth looking at the source code of a few Craft plugins to see how their authors have structured their code. – Martin Spain Aug 12 '20 at 13:15

Craft 3.x controller endpoints are kebab-case rather than camelCase as with Craft 2.x, and you can post to them via JS very easily using the URL format below:


To take the example from the old Craft 2 docs you linked to above, you can make an Ajax request to the default endpoint of a controller like this:


Or a specific (i.e. non-default) controller action like this:
