jQuery param() Method
- traditional (optional): A Boolean value that specifies whether to use traditional-style param serialization (default is false).
You can use $.param() to serialize this object into a query string:
This query string can then be appended to a URL or used in an AJAX request.

In some cases, you might need to use traditional-style serialization, which formats array and object values differently. To enable this, set the traditional parameter to true:
With traditional set to true, the output will be:
Traditional serialization is useful when working with server-side code that expects data in a specific format.

One common use case for $.param() is when making AJAX requests with jQuery. You can serialize your data object and include it in the request URL:
In this example, the serialized query string is appended to the URL, and the server can then parse the parameters and respond accordingly.
