I'm struggling with an ajax request. It's executed but not returning back to my class.


            public function __construct()  {
                add_action( 'admin_print_styles', array($this, 'admin_styles') );
                add_action( 'admin_enqueue_scripts', array($this,'admin_scripts') );
                add_action( 'admin_menu', array($this, 'admin_menu' ));
                $this->dbHandler = DatabaseHandler::get_instance();
                add_action('wp_ajax_nopriv_add_vehicle', array($this,'add_vehicle'));  
                add_action('wp_ajax_add_vehicle', array($this,'add_vehicle'));  

            public function admin_scripts( $hook ){

                wp_enqueue_script( 'admin_scripts', plugins_url( 'js/functions.admin.js', __FILE__ ), array('jquery') );
                wp_localize_script('admin_scripts', 'ajax_var', array(  
                    'url' => admin_url('admin-ajax.php')
                    ,'nonce' => wp_create_nonce('ajax-nonce')  

            public function add_vehicle()  
                wp_die("RETURNED"); //NOT GETTING CALLED!
                $nonce = $_POST['nonce'];  

                if ( ! wp_verify_nonce( $nonce, 'ajax-nonce' ) )  
                    die ( 'Busted!');

                $title = $_POST['id'];
                wp_die("TEST" . $title);


My JS (functions.admin.js:

var addVehicle = function(){

        var data1 = {
            action: 'add_vehicle',
            nonce: ajax_var.nonce,
            id: 1
            type: "post",
            url: ajax_var.url,
            data: data1,
            beforeSend: function(jqXHR, settings){
            success: function(data, textStatus, jqXHR){
            error: function(jqXHR, textStatus, errorThrown){

        return false;


During execution, my AJAX Request was sent successfully. I received the success message. But my add_vehicle function is not called. I've checked a lot of articles, tried many different solutions, but none of them returned back to my class.

  • Have you tried just echo 'here'; die(); ? – Andrew Bartel Dec 6 '13 at 16:22
  • Do your localize_script variables look right in the source? – vancoder Dec 7 '13 at 1:11
  • @vancoder yes they look right data: "action=add_vehicle&nonce=774b77e381&id=1"& url: "http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php". ajax_var is recognized an got the values I specified in WP (ajax_var Object {url: "http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php", nonce: "774b77e381"}). @AndrewBartel yes I did, it don't get called. – mybecks Dec 17 '13 at 9:07
