One thing that really confuse me is the following:

When I load a javascript file via Ajax and I watch the http requests thats being made, then I see the following error in Firebug: admin-ajax.php (aborted)

Please see this picture:

enter image description here

It is this jquery get file function that's causing this error:

jQuery.get('/assets/js/shop.js', function(data) { eval(data); }); 

If I remove the above script, then there is no error anymore.

Any suggestions?


I already see why it's giving these aborted errors. In the shop.js file there are some calls to the admin-ajax.php:

/* <![CDATA[ */
var wc_cart_fragments_params = {"ajax_url":"\/wp-admin\/admin-ajax.php","fragment_name":"wc_fragments"};
/* ]]> */

Should I place these CDATA in the body of my html or do I need to do something else?

Are there any Console js errors? The admin-ajax.php is Wordpress's built in way of dealing with ajax so you should probably do something like this, assuming .get() would also work:

$.post(ajaxurl, data, function(response) {
    alert('Got this from the server: ' + response);


  • No there are no console errors. Please see the edit in my question.
