We have a problem with the search command: Since our last upgrade to v2.9.0-2418 the searched string is pre- and postfixed with ASCII character expressed in % format, see the attached image. The searched string is prefied with %255E and postfxed by %2524 in the URL. And teh search fails. This affects searches from drop-down menus.
Thanks in advance.
Strange. In this forum it works without extra characters. Just try it yourself. Do you have any strange configuration? Can you send me a minimal elogd.cfg which produces that error, maybe derived from the example elogd.cfg from the distribution.
Well, It may be our implementation of re-routing web requests: The requested string in elog is prefixed by %5E (^) and postfixed by %24 ($). But in my case, the '%' is again escaped as %25 so the prefix becomes %255E that is not understood by elog as being '^' ...
I will see with my experts in routing if this is something that can be fixed in our configuration. But when elog processes the input string, it should un-escape these characters and find back the '^', no?
It turned out to be a setting of our re-routing of requests that re-escaped the '%'. Sorry for the noise. Cheers
