This is a weird issue I stumbled on just now:
If there is
?name=anythingatall (or &name=anythingatall) appended to any URL, WordPress responds with a 404 page.
Even WordPress.com shows this behaviour!
I found some very old and closed forum topics about it so it's been there for a long time:
But none of them provide an answer on HOW to prevent WP to stumble over "name=..." or even on WHY this is happening.
I am guessing this not not a bug but by design. But why... Is "name" reserved for anything like User Name internally?
Can anyone shed some light on this?
