I want to make Ajax request to the controller from checkout page. The code I have in github and in my previous post were I did not specify that I want to make the ajax request from js file placed on checkout page. The current ajax request is displaying an error in console: jquery.js:9666 POST 404 (Not Found). Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong that the ajax request is not made?

I prefer not to use phtml file, unless I really need to (the reason for using would possible security threth). (My module currently does not need phtml file.)

  • Do you have a route defined for your controller? The URL that you have for the Ajax call suggests that you are missing that piece of the puzzle. Oct 28, 2016 at 1:13
  • I can not understand what you mean by "having route defined for your controller"? You can see yourself what files i have in github. I suspect that the problem is that i can't use jQuery url: 'vendor_checkoutshipping/index/htmlcreator' in js file? Is that so? Oct 28, 2016 at 13:30

The ajax request url should not have 'index' in it. The url should be vendor_checkoutshipping/htmlcreator. Placing a controller in the Controller/Index folder and/or naming it Index.php means that the word 'index' is not included in the url path.

  • I tried it, but still getting 404 error. (The url in console does not contain index anymore). Oct 28, 2016 at 19:45
  • Also, the URL should not have 'checkout' in it. Oct 28, 2016 at 20:19
  • How can i remove it? Magento adds the 'checkout' to the URL. link Oct 28, 2016 at 21:08
  • You put a slash at the start so that it is based off the root: /controller/action instead of controller/action. Oct 28, 2016 at 22:52
