Removed http://www.jsonpexamples.com/ as it does not exist anymore and redirects to a only loosely related website — Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.193.182.74 (talk) 13:53, 22 July 2011 (UTC)

Note wikipedia's JSON entry includes a pre-existing JSONP link so if you chose to delete this entry please note that the referrer JSON entry will need to be edited to remove the internal JSONP link.


The topic for this page is sufficiently distinct from JSON as to merit its own page. It had, I guess, originally been a standalone topic, and then in 2008 was merged, I take it. Subsequently, it made less and less sense to keep it in the JSON page, and so in 2010 it was re-instated as an independent topic.

Initial Definition[edit]

The first paragraph says, "JSONP is a solution to this problem..." without saying what the problem is. Complex.confusion (talk) 01:14, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

Convention[edit]

The following sentence makes no sense.

By convention, the browser provides the name of the callback function as a named query parameter value, typically using the name jsonp or callback as the named query parameter field name, in its request to the server, e.g., How the browser knows the name of callback function is? How the browser knows what the jsonp request is to provide the query parameter?

IMO the sentence should be:

By convention, the website has to provide the callback function specified in the query parameter. Typically the parameter is named callback or jsonp. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.223.81.162 (talk) 07:36, 13 November 2013 (UTC)


Official Website[edit]

I'm not sure I understand how the 'official website' link in the external links section exists. I don't see anything objectionable in its current content, but I also don't see how it can be seen as 'official' other than by virtue of somebody having bought that domain. 149.173.1.35 (talk) 17:36, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
