Here is my coading what i did :

  1. Called ajaxurl in the header.

    function testdel( $post ) { // note the $post varaible as argument
      wp_nonce_field('testdel', 'ajaxsecurity'); // is a good practise adding nonces
      <input type="hidden" value="<?php echo $post->ID; ?>" id="ajaxtestdel_postid">
        <th scope="row"><label for="del">delete test key</label></th>
        <td><input type="button" name="del" id="del" value="delete" class="button"></td>
      jQuery('#del').on('click', function(){
        var $this = jQuery(this);
        var post = jQuery('#ajaxtestdel_postid').val(); // get post id from hidded field
        var nonce = jQuery('input[name="ajaxsecurity"]').val(); // get nonce from hidded field
          url: ajaxurl, // in backend you should pass the ajax url using this variable
          type: 'POST',
          data: { action : 'ajaxtestdel', postid: post, ajaxsecurity: nonce },
          success: function(data){

    function ajaxtestdel() { $postid = isset($_POST['postid']) ? $_POST['postid'] : ''; //$postid='382'; $nonce = isset($_POST['ajaxsecurity']) ? $_POST['ajaxsecurity'] : ''; if ( $postid && $nonce && wp_verify_nonce($nonce, 'testdel') ) { $status = delete_post_meta($postid, '_post_like_count') ? 'Error' : 'Success'; } else { $status = 'Error'; } die($status); }

    add_action('wp_ajax_ajaxtestdel', 'ajaxtestdel');
