Default Value



Defines whether CPAINT arguments are passed to the backend via HTTP GET or HTTP POST.

Please note: For some reason unknown to the public the Opera browser does not support POST. There is nothing we can do about it, sorry. If the data you need to send from the frontend to the backend does not exceed a certain (browser-dependant) range, you are fine with using GET though.

Here are some rough estimates about accepted querystring lengths:
Opera:~4050 characters
IE4+:2083 characters
Netscape 3 - 4.78:8192 characters
Netscape 6+:~2000 characters
