Problem w/ retrieving $_POST content with REST_Controller and REST api - El Forum - 08-09-2011

[eluser]Unknown[/eluser]
I am trying to use Phil Sturgeon's REST_Controller to setup a REST api to receive request from Backbone.js, and then update them in a MySQL DB through php.
Backbone.js by default send a RESTful json request.

The problem I have is I'm not able to use $this->post('name') to retrieve the POST content. When it enters it into the DB, it created a new entry, but the content is 0.

Here are some relevant info from the browser console
