jQuery.post does not work in 1.5

Reported by: novakg Owned by:

Component: ajax Version: 1.5

Blocking: Blocked by:


I'm trying the examples from  http://docs.jquery.com/Tutorials:Getting_Started_with_jQuery and found that the AJAX post function does now work:

     $.post("rate.php", {rating: $(this).html()}, function(xml) {
       // format and output result
         "Thanks for rating, current average: " +
         $("average", xml).text() +
         ", number of votes: " +
         $("count", xml).text()

As I can see in FireBug, it does an OPTIONS call instead of a POST call.

It works fine in previous versions. It affect jQuery 1.5 only.

OS: Kubuntu 10.04

Browsers: FF 3.6.13, Opera 11.01, Google Chrome 5.0.375.126, (I haven't tried on IE)

$.post works fine for me. OPTIONS indicates you are attempting to perform a cross-site request, which is not supported. If you can provide an actual, reproducible testcase, please feel free to comment again.

Please read  How to report bugs in order to provide a most useful bug report and make sure to include a test case (on  http://jsfiddle.net) which reproduces your issues.

You are right, I was trying to do a cross-site request. This must be the problem.
