I was having fits getting the REST Client for Firefox to let me create a post body where PHP would recognize the parameters I was trying to post. I added them to the “request body” but my REST server wasn’t showing that I was even posting anything.
I found out that you have to set the “request header” section of the Firefox plugin to have a “name” = “Content-Type” and “value” = “application/x-www-form-urlencoded”. Then I was able to put something like “name=themayesfamily” in the “request body” and my server found a post variable with called “name” with the value I’d set.
Hope this helps some others.
