Long on-going bug regarding passthroughs

Recommended Posts

Currently, trying to access various pages while not being logged in will give you a log-in page directly moving you to the following page. However, trying to access a search page through log-in passthroughs will will always give you empty results because the search command is malformed. I believe this is through problems with the URL parsing and the log-in redirect.

It's a small annoyance, but I think it wouldn't be that hard to get it fixed.

This problem seems to apply to both Opera and Chrome.

It's because any & in the URL turns into its escape character. Changing it back will fix it. Dunno exactly what causes it, but it's a known bug and I would assume if it was possible to fix admin would have done so already.

I'm not sure what the server load is, but if you could convert the URL target to a hash and have the server redirect on the hash, it would solve the problem.

It's a matter of elegance, though; it's not game-breaking functionality and does not give an undue advantage to one side or another.
