jquery onclick function not defined


Staff member
I have an ajax script and I am trying to post from a function. I am using a onlick href but its not coming up as undefined. This is using wordpress. I have tried to move the code around inside and outside the scope but I still cant seem to get it to work.

    <div id="live">
    <div class="container">
        <?php the_content(); ?>
        <div id="comment-display">
            <form method="post" action="index.php" id="comments_submit">
                <input type="hidden" id="nameBox" value="<?php echo $_SESSION['name'] ?>" name="name"/>
                <input type="hidden" id="emailBox" name="email" value="<?php echo $_SESSION['email']; ?>"/>
                <textarea id="chatBox" placeholder="Ask a question or make a comment" name="comment" class="form-control"></textarea>
                <a href="javascript:submitComment();" type="submit" id="submit" name="submit" class="btn cardh-bg text-white text-bold margin-top-5"> Submit Comment </a>
            <br />
            <div id="displayComments"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
    jQuery(function($) {
                method: "GET",
                url: "<?php echo get_template_directory_uri()?>/get_chat.php"
        }, 2000);

        function submitComment(){
                method: "POST",
                url: "template-live.php",
                data: {submitComment:$('#chatBox').val(),submitName:$('#nameBox').val(),submitEmail:$('#emailBox').val()}
                alert('Your comment has been submitted, and will be displayed after approval.');

Thank you :)
