#7654 closed (fixed)

Modifying upload handlers on the fly - accessing request.POST also makes it immutable

In the manual it warns accessing request.FILES will make the file uploaders immutable. However if you access request.POST like the @staff_member_required decorator does you can't then append or insert an upload handler in the view function.

As the parsing of the POST and FILES data is coupled - suggest updating the documentation to warn accessing request.POST has the same end effect as accessing request.FILES.
