Is it possible to upload an image using GET?
I would like to add an image uploader to my site. From what I can tell, I need to use POST methods to send the data from the uploaded file to the next page. If I use the GET method, the $files variables don't get the information.
Is there a way to use the GET method? The way my site's set up, it would be much easier to use GET.
Pretty sure GET is heavily limited in size.
Say 2K to 8K maximum.
GET cant be used IMHO
I'm wondering if it has something to do with character encoding. Maybe GET will cause problems with encoding, but POST preserves the characters?
Besides the size restrictions, I don't think that enctype="multipart/form-data" has any meaning for GET. Besides, since uploading a file makes a change on the server, you should not use GET, anyway.
