Extra ampersand in URL causes incomplete topic listing [message #186154] Mon, 16 June 2014 15:40 Go to previous message

The "normal" navigation links via the forum list, topic list, and "breadcrumb" list(s) results in a URL that has an extra '&' (ampersand) on the end, which for some reason causes an incomplete topic list (for me, only seven topics) to be shown.

If the URL is submitted without the trailing '&', the complete topic list is shown.

I also discovered that the "Goto Forum:" button, when utilized, results in a URL that does not have the trailing '&', and thus seems to work correctly.

Am I missing some notion of intended behavior that can possibly be adjusted through configuration, or is this indeed a bug ?

If the former is true, I haven't been able to find anything in settings or documentation seemingly related to it.

If its a bug, it seems innocent/simple-enough to fix, but I scanned the code for locations where "frm_id=<whatever>" is generated, and the result is so prolific, with lots of variables involved in the "<whatever>" portion, that it struck me as prohibitive for me to try to fix it, without learning a lot about the internals.

This forum software seems pretty darned cool, so I'd like to use it - but if this is indeed a bug, its going to be difficult to share forums very effectively with basic listing of topics not working.

Any assistance greatly appreciated ...
