Description (last modified by dread) (diff)

If you search for unescaped characters such as '`' (backtick) in the URL in Chrome then you get a 500 error.

e.g. http://www.ckan.net/package/search?q=fjdkf2B%C2%B4gfhgfkgf{gpk fjdkf2B´gfhgfkgf{gpk

returns this exception:

comment:1 Changed 4 years ago by dread

  • Summary changed from Search URL encoding issue to Search URL escaping

comment:2 Changed 4 years ago by dread

  • Description modified (diff)

This exception occurs for ckan.net with just this one character: http://ckan.net/package/search?q=%C2 (you can wget it)

But I can't recreate it on my machine. Maybe it's a version issue.

The client that is making all these crazy calls is googlebot.

comment:3 Changed 3 years ago by thejimmyg

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

I've just tested this on ckan.net and it gives a sensible message:

There was an error while searching. Please try another search term.
