story_html5.html access variables via javascript

I have a project that prints a certificate likethis:

javascripton print certbutton:

var newWin=window.open('http://www.mywebsite.com/University/certificate.php',"_blank", "directories=no,titlebar=no,toolbar=no,location=no,status=no,menubar=no,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,width=820,height=610");

This certificate.php loads a background image and pulls variables from the player and displays them, it further submits the score to mysql via AJAX.  It works flawlesslyon story.html but when using story_html5.html it doesn't work I can't understand why unless that this code works for flash and not on html5.  How do i pull variables out of html5?

certificate.php:

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<!-- saved from url=(0014)about:internet -->
<TITLE>Certificate</TITLE>
<STYLE>

.result {
    position:absolute;
    text-align: center;
    left:440px;
    top:300px;
    width:360px;
    font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    color:#61503B;
    z-index:2;
}
.bgimage{
    position:relative;
    z-index:1;
}



</STYLE>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

<BODY>
<div class='bgimage'><img src='CertificateBG.png' width='800' height='600'/></div>

    try {
      var player=window.opener.GetPlayer();
    } catch(e) {
      alert('Error submitting to database contact an administrator  -- Error #1 No Variables --' + StudentID);
    }
     
    //this grabs the player object from the parent (launching window)
    var player=window.opener.GetPlayer();
    //now we pull a field value. You can pull as many as you like. That replace jumble lets you bring over text fields with multiple lines.
    var StudentID=player.GetVar("StudentID").replace(/(\r\n|\r|\n)/g, '<br />');
    var CourseID=player.GetVar("CourseID").replace(/(\r\n|\r|\n)/g, '<br />');
    var coursename=player.GetVar("CourseName").replace(/(\r\n|\r|\n)/g, '<br />');
    var learnerName=player.GetVar("learner").replace(/(\r\n|\r|\n)/g, '<br />');
    var score=player.GetVar("MyScore").replace(/(\r\n|\r|\n)/g, '<br />');

   
    var currentDate = new Date()
    var day = currentDate.getDate()
    var month = currentDate.getMonth() + 1
    var year = currentDate.getFullYear()
    var todaydate = month + "/" + day + "/" + year;
   
     
   
    document.write("<div class='result'><b>"+learnerName.replace('%20', ' ')+" </b><br> <br> has completed the course,<br><br> <b>" +coursename.replace('%20', ' ')+"</b><br/><br/><em>with a score of "+score.replace('%20', ' ')+"  <br/><br/>"+todaydate+"    </em> <br/><br/></div>");
   
    //debugs
    //document.write("<div class='studentid'>"+StudentID+"</div>");
    //document.write("<div class='courseid'>"+CourseID+"</div>");
    //document.write("<div class='score'>"+score+"</div>");
    //document.write("<div class='todaydate'>"+todaydate+"</div>");

    //begin AJAX POSTING OF Javascript variables
  

    var formData = {StudentID:StudentID, CourseID:CourseID, Score:score };
   
   
   
    $(document).ready(function (){
        $.ajax({                                     
          url: 'http://www.mywebsite.com/university/submittest.php',             
          type: "post",         
          data: formData,
          dataType: 'html',               
          beforeSend: function() {
              $('#current_page').append("Submitting to Database..");
          },
          success: function(data, textStatus, jqXHR)
          {
            alert('Your scores have been reocrded to our database '+data);
          },
          error: function (jqXHR, textStatus, errorThrown)
          {
            alert('Error submitting to database contact an administrator  -- Error #2 Submission PHP'+errorThrown);
          }
        });
    });
   
   
   

</script>

so again works fine in flash on firefox and ie and all web browsers but on a mobile device like android such as chrome or samsung s4 browser it goes into html5 and it never works all variables are blank what am I missing?

Thanks!

Solved Replacing

var StudentID=player.GetVar("StudentID").replace(/(\r\n|\r|\n)/g, '
');
    var CourseID=player.GetVar("CourseID").replace(/(\r\n|\r|\n)/g, '
');
    var coursename=player.GetVar("CourseName").replace(/(\r\n|\r|\n)/g, '
');
    var learnerName=player.GetVar("learner").replace(/(\r\n|\r|\n)/g, '
');
    var score=player.GetVar("MyScore").replace(/(\r\n|\r|\n)/g, '
');

with

var StudentID=player.GetVar("StudentID");

works in HTML5 the .replace breaks in HTML5 not sure why but whatevs, this code above should be money for anyone making a home grown LMS as I have done.

Better late than never?

Submit.php example

Using Apache and PHP for logfile


<?php

$sid=$_POST['StudentID'];
$cid=$_POST['CourseID'];
$score=$_POST['Score'];
// $timeaken=$_POST['timetaken'];

// database settings
$host="127.0.0.1";
$ln="MyUsername";
$pw="mypassword!";
$db="myLMS";

// echo "Direct File Access Debug StudentID:$sid, CourseID:$cid, Score:$score;";

$nowtime = date("Y-m-d H:i");

$sql="INSERT INTO dr_courses_tests (StudentID, CourseID, Score, Time, CompletionDate,CoursePracticalPath,CoursePracticalApprovedBy,StudentName ) VALUES ( '$sid', '$cid', $score, '0', '$nowtime', '', '' ,'')";

file_put_contents("/home/DRich/public_html/MYUniversity/submissionlog.txt","$sql \r\n",FILE_APPEND);


$link = mysqli_connect("$host","$ln","$pw","$db") or die("Unable to connect to database");
mysqli_query($link,$sql);
