Main Page Bug - Syntax Error In Multi-Page Results
« on: February 04, 2013, 04:18:12 am »
Okay, so I've noticed something odd when trying to look through the mainpage quote while I try to figure out who I think the fundie of 2012 was.  You get a 404 when you try to move through the pages for more quotes.  While i know "why" this is happening, I'm not sure what's causing it.

When you click the hyperlink to go to another page, say from Dave Blount's first page of quotes to his second, the part of the url that specifies the fundie disappears.  In Dave's case, it's this code:

Code: [Select]
?Fundie=Dave Blount

This reduces the url from

Code: [Select]
http://fstdt.net/Search.aspx?Fundie=Dave Blount&Board=Moonbattery

to

Code: [Select]
http://fstdt.net/Search.aspx&Board=Moonbattery&Page=2

This essentially changes the character after .aspx from ? to &, which the server can't properly process.  I wouldn't know exactly what's causing it, but my guess is some kind of misconfiguration in the server.  As far as I can tell, it's consistent across all fundies and all quote page links.

Huh, that's really odd.

I'll admit it's a completely undocumented and rarely used feature so I haven't tested it much, but thanks for the report, I'll need to look into it.
