hi, i was wondering if there is a difference between refreshing a page using jquery .reload() when submitting data using $.post and an automatic page refresh when submitting data using php?

Doesn't the Javascript version require two http requests to be made (the post request and then the reload) versus only one when submitting a form right away?

With .reload(), when possible, you can try to force the reload from the browser cache:

Reloads the resource from the current URL. Its optional unique parameter is a Boolean, which, when it is true, causes the page to always be reloaded from the server. If it is false or not specified, the browser may reload the page from its cache.

Also .reload() is not part of JQuery, it's a method of the Location interface:
