How can I update a blog post with PUT method?

Hi everyone,

 

I have tried to update a blog post from the JavaScript console, but I have consistently gotten the following error message:

 

HTTP400: BAD REQUEST - The request could not be processed by the server due to invalid syntax.

 

My approach was as follows:

 

1. Define new XMLHttpRequest object:

var a = new XMLHttpRequest();

 

2. Open 'PUT'

a.open('PUT', 'https://DOMAIN.com/api/core/v3/contents/POST_ID'); (Note: for confidentiality reasons, I replaced the first part of the URL with DOMAIN. POST_ID is a placeholder for the contentID of the blog post I would like to update)

 

3. Define body

let json = JSON.stringify({

     content: {'type': 'text/html', 'text': '<p>New content of post</p>'}

     subject: 'Some subject',

     type: 'post',

     parent: 'https://DOMAIN.com/api/core/v3/places/BLOG_ID'

})

 

4. Set RequestHeader

a.setRequestHeader('Content-Type', 'application/json');

 

5. Send request

a.send(json);

 

I have been trying to find a solution, tested the 'DELETE' method (which worked), and would really appreciate if someone could help or at least steer me in the right direction.

 

All the best,

Julian
