  • Weird bug on vBulletin search

    Try this:

    do a search for "anyword ac/dc"

    The hex representation of the "/" (%2F) character confuses the hell out of the php code. Click on any of the serach results to experience the bug.

    There's a newer vBulletin (2.2.25), I don't know if the bug is fixed or if it's even worth upgrading for.

          magnetik: Hehehe, what's the fun otherwise.

          Aaron: I searched on the vbulletin page and it seems it was a know bug, and it doesn't happen in their own bulletin, so it must have been fixed on some later version.

          Here's one of the posts regarding the error:

          As you can see, at the end of the thread he mentions a one line hack fixes it.
