This is my last reply. I agree with n0xie. I'll just resume the arguments on why querystrings should or should not be supported by default.

Pros on querystring
- other frameworks use it (I don't see it as an argument but ok)
- search engines use query strings (I don't see what that has to do with CI).
- better with forms (I don't see why GET is better then POST except cross site, but why would you want that)
- proper web programming (WHY, what makes you believe that query strings are a part of proper webprogramming?)
- some services require it (you just turn it on).
- Ray Fielding would agree with you (have you asked him)

Cons on querystring
- 99 procent of the time you don't need it (ok I made the percentage up, but think about it when do you need it)
- faster
- more save
- more SEO friendly

And still this is a discussion on something that can be turned on by toggling a boolean.

You started this discussion with
Quote:It really is quite surprising that CodeIgniter does not support querystrings by default. I imagine that this deficiency alone is a show-stopper for many potential users
this statement. Imagine what if people might think you are right and CodeItniter should do things like other frameworks. As a framework and as individuals we should think before we copy the implementations of others.

And still, this discussion is about a default value in the config file.

Ps. I'am nog insulting you, its not personel.
