$.post doesn't allow setting a contentType

Component: traversing Version: 1.7.1

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.

Sample code:  http://jsfiddle.net/bNA8T/

See  http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8757681/why-does-jquery-post-json-as-a-parameter-name-instead-of-as-the-request-body for details and some more code.

  • Priority changed from undecided to low
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Component changed from unfiled to traversing

If you want finer control, use $.ajax.

Please follow the  bug reporting guidlines and use  jsFiddle when providing test cases and demonstrations instead of pasting the code in the ticket.
