You only use POST when you use post as the method you wish to submit a form. ie:
<form action="test.php" method="post">
<input type="textbox" name="name"><br />
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit Name">
If you dont use the mothod attribute within your html form tag then you will need to use GET. As the information is being submitted over the url. You can also use the GET mothod with links:
<a href="test.php?var1=hello&var2=world">Some link</a>
You are setting two variables which are var1 and var2 in order to retrieve the value of these variables you use the following code $_GET['var1'] and $_GET['var2']
