Problems with AOL/CS browsers - PHP Development

Hi All, I have run up against a strange error that seems affect only older version of AOL and CS browsers (AOL earlier than vs 8.0, and not sure what versions of CS): when I have a form, and set the target="_blank", when the user clicks on that button, he gets sent to the action page, but no form data is submitted with the request! $_POST is completely empty! Has anyone else ever encountered this behavior? Is there a workaround? What versions of AOL/CS does it affect? Any help on this matter would be appreciated! -Josh...

    Default Problems with AOL/CS browsers

    Hi All,

    I have run up against a strange error that seems affect only older version
    of AOL and CS browsers (AOL earlier than vs 8.0, and not sure what versions
    of CS): when I have a form, and set the target="_blank", when the user
    clicks on that button, he gets sent to the action page, but no form data is
    submitted with the request! $_POST is completely empty!

    Has anyone else ever encountered this behavior? Is there a workaround?
    What versions of AOL/CS does it affect?

    Any help on this matter would be appreciated!

    -Josh

    I would imagine the work-around to be to code the page to not support
    that browser or use the GET method.

    Doesn't _blank mean to open a new instantiation of the browswer? If so,
    check to make sure tehre is not some kind of popup stopper mugging you. -Ike

    _blank does indeed mean "open new browser". But it is not a blocked popup
    problem, because they do get sent to that page - it is just that there is no
    POST data that gets sent along with the request.

    Unless somehow the popup blocker were to allow the popup, but cleaned the
    HTTP request of any of the POST data? Seems like a strange thing...

    Yeah, I kinda thought so, and I am actually in the process of converting
    that portion of the script to a GET call.

    What I really wanted to know is if anybody else had experience this
    behavior, so I could more accurately identify just what browsers do this.
    Right now I only have a vague idea that it is older versions of AOL and CS
    browsers.
