What is "fetch"?

Post by duggulous » Fri Nov 24, 2017 5:53 am

What does checking the "fetch" option in custom settings for a domain do?

My guess is that it controls whether other sites can make XMLHttpRequest and Fetch request to the site in question.
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!

Thanks for the links. Sounds like a good guess. So if I understand correctly, unchecking it would disable ajax requests to that domain
