Comment (by Er_eri):

 Replying to [comment:4 sc0ttkclark]:
 > @Er_eri you'll want to just use `update_metadata_by_mid( 'post', absint(
 $_POST['post_id'] ), 'my_meta_key', sanitize_text_field(
 $_POST['my_meta_key'] ) );` instead here, it's already there for you to
 use it.

 definitely an edge case.

 Thank you for your reply. I'm not so good at coding. I'm trying to make it
 work but without success.

 Here is the simplest one. Is this the right one?

 add_action( 'wp_ajax_my_action', 'isave_meta' );
 function isave_meta( $post_id ) {

 update_metadata_by_mid( 'post', absint( $_POST['post'] ), 'my_meta_key');

 And the JS:

                 var data = {
                         action:         'my_action',
                         post_id:         $('#post_ID').val(),
                         my_meta_key:     $('#the_value').val(),

                 $.post(ajaxurl, data, function(response) {
                 alert('Got this from the server: ' + response);
