Who built your quick search box?  Do you know how it works?  There must be something that’s causing URL encoding to happen twice somewhere along the line – but without reverse-engineering your page, I’m not sure where it is happening (could be a Javascript form processing thing, or some intermediate PHP processing, or something else).  If you’re not sure how it works, let me know and I’ll throw a few tools at the problem to see if I can come up with more clues…  but I thought I wouldn’t pull out the arsenal until I heard a little more from you.  I suspect it’s just a matter of following the trail and eliminating an unnecessary urlencode() or encodeURIComponent() call somewhere along the line.

Subject: [VuFind-General] comma question


When I search VUFind directly at https://chengfind.wpunj.edu for blum, john I get the result that I expect. When I perform the same search from my webpage that contains the VUFind quick search box, www.wpunj.edu/library,  I get a no results error: “Your search – blum%2c john – did not match any responses. Obviously, the encoding for the comma is the cause, but how should I correct this?
