#6616 closed bug (worksforme)

jQuery $.post bug with square brackets.

Reported by: dencheg Owned by:
Priority: undecided Milestone: 1.4
Component: ajax Version: 1.4
Keywords: post [] square brackets Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


var data = {id:id, theme:cthemes, type:ctypes, region:cregions, format:cformats};

data+ id? = type; data+ id? = theme; data+ id? = region; data+ id? = format;

data+ id? = kw; data+ id? = pre; data+ id? = desc; data+ id? = adult; data+ id? = title; data+ id? = quality; data+ id? = ftstatus;

$.post( "{% url editoradmin.views.save_resource %}",

data, function(res, textStatus, XMLHttpRequest) {

alert("hello world");


The data I get in my python code before any changes is: {..., u'ftstatus-657031': [u'dnt'], u'theme-657031[]': [u'37'], u'quality-657031': [u'1'], u'type-657031[]': [u'9'], u'id': [u'657031'], ...}>

The problem is - [] in 'theme-657031[]'. This code works fine in 1.3.2 version, but fails in 1.4.1/1.4.2

Including square brackets when using data() works fine for me. Here are a few different examples: http://jsfiddle.net/addyosmani/Yn5DZ/.

What I'm going to do for now as this is working for me is close it. If you still experience the issue feel free to open a new ticket.
