Subject: [OpenGuides-Dev] bug in search
if you search from
you get a page not found
Interesting... I've noticed that the search box on the Supersearch page is broken, and
I've just done some more digging to find
I don't get the problem on un.earth.li
The Oxford site seems to work correctly.
Anyway, the technical details are as follows:
The HTML is being generated by CGI.pm, in particular start_form, which has not been
supplied with an -action parameter, hence it
sould reinvoke the same script with a new query string.
What we are seeing is that something has munged forward slashes into %2F - but we want
real forward slashes! This is getting
prepended with http://openguides.org/london/
resulting in a mess.
Any idea where this extra munging is coming from? It could be that there are different
versions of CGI.pm floating around.
I cannot reproduce the problem outside of OG London.
