Ticket #11134 (closed bug: wontfix)
$.post doesn't allow setting a contentType
|Reported by:||iwein||Owned by:|
When posting json to a server you need to set the content type. This can not be done with the $post short-hand, and therefore requires fallback to $.ajax.
It would be great if $.post also supported a contentType.
