Difference between $_GET & _POST with forms
Posted on 2005-03-30
I would like to have a clear understanding of the difference between the two. I seem to be able to use the $_GET method, accept with date, but have problems using the
$_POST. I would be grateful for a clear description of the two methods and when it is best to use which. What I do understand is the GET will send the info in the url, and that there is less characters, and it is less secure, however I would like to understand how values get from one page to the other with POST and what is needed to be done in a Dreamweaver form. Do I need to pass the values the same way I do wth the GET? I do make sure my form action is GET or POST depending on which method I am using.
I have just made sure my registered_globals is disabled, as I did read a post here yesterday that may influence them and may have accounted for why they have not worked. I am would be pleased for a clearer explanation if someone can help.
