i'm trying getting questions by tags.

this is my simple code and i'm running this from my http://localhost:

<script type="text/javascript">

  $(function(){
  $.ajax({ 
    url:'http://api.stackoverflow.com/1.1/search?tagged=php&page=1&pagesize=15',
    dataType:'jsonp',
    type:'GET',
    error:function(e){
   console.log(e);
    },
    beforeSend:function(){

    },
    success: function(data){
 data = JSON.parse(data);
  $.each(data,function(e){
  $("#wrapper").append(data[e].total);
  });

  }
 });
  });
</script>

then i receive an error in console:

SyntaxError: invalid label

"total": 2000,

search...8184757 (line 2, col 2)

seems the error is generated by the json returned format, cause "total" is a result key.

how can i fix this??

For one use the current API version (2.1) instead of an old one (1.1 in your case).

Furthermore, when using JSONP you do not have to parse the result. The data object you get in your success method already is a JavaScript object you can work with.

$(function(){
  $.ajax({
    url: 'http://api.stackexchange.com/2.1/search?page=1&pagesize=15&tagged=php&site=stackoverflow',
    dataType:'jsonp',
    type:'GET',
    error:function(e){
      console.log(e);
    },
    success: function(data){
      // do something with the result here    
    }
 });
});

The API expects JSONP requests to specify the callback as the jsonp parameter, not the callback that jQuery uses by default.

While really you should consider upgrading to API 2.1, which does expect callback (and allows CORS, for that matter), you can fix your code by putting in the jsonp parameter placeholder:

$.ajax({ 
    url:'http://api.stackoverflow.com/1.1/search?jsonp=?&tagged=php&page=1&pagesize=15',
// ...                                            ^-- this

Also, you don't need to call JSON.parse() on the response data, since it will be an object already.
