Odd Fabook Linking Bug?
« on: December 03, 2015, 10:14:27 PM »
Greetings!

Again I can not believe what a wonderful website this is, and am so happy to be here, but I think I may have found an unusual bug... I have posted my profile URL on facebook to share with my friends, but facebook renders "profile;u=" to "profile%3Bu%3D" in the url and apparently the form takes exception to this and redirects to the main page. I apologize if this is just the natural order of how things work with the form's software or if this bug has been reported before.

Admins: If this was not known, I dare you to search your log of caught bad links to see if others have done this too =P
If I do it more than 2 times I want to automate it in C#!

Oh, nice find -- let me think how to fix that..
I wonder if you can just change all your ; to & when you put it into facebook -- see if that works?
