#6477 closed enhancement (worksforme)

It's common for web services to expect data to be POSTed in the request body and not as URL parameters. This cannot be done via $.post right now, so you have to resort to using $.ajax with type 'POST'.

This option should be added to $.post

See: http://api.jquery.com/jquery.ajax/ Find: processData

This might be a useful feature to extend to the $.post() shorthand

Maybe there's something I don't get but there is no correlation between appending data to the url and processData. ProcessData only indicates the data needs to be url-encoded IF and WHEN it is not a string. If you pass a string to $.post() as your data parameter then it WILL be sent in the request body. Are we sure we're not dealing with a request that cannot be dealt with using a POST and hence end up being dealed with as a GET (cross-domain jsonp & script notably).

Yeah, this is quite confusing - if a POST is happening then it should be in the post body, please create a new ticket with a test case if this is not the case.
