#15872 closed Bug (duplicate)

JavaScript CSRF fix for Ajax POST mentioned in docs intermittently fails to append token for IE7

Reported by: nick@… Owned by: nobody
Component: Documentation Version: 1.3
Severity: Normal Keywords: ajax csrf post
Cc: Triage Stage: Unreviewed
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


I've found that in some cases(not sure why), IE7 will prepend protocol://servername to a form's action, causing the

 if (!(/^http:.*/.test(settings.url) || /^https:.*/.test(settings.url))) {...}

test to fail...

I propose we use the following instead, as it will work in more cases:

    var page_host =;
    var regex=new RegExp('^https?://' + page_host + '/', 'i');
    if (regex.test(settings.url) || !(/^http:.*/.test(settings.url) || /^https:.*/.test(settings.url))) {
        // Only send the token to relative URLs i.e. locally.
