'name' in query string creates 404

Viewing 7 replies - 1 through 7 (of 7 total)
  • I’m running into the same problem. I have a plugin that users must activate. When they activate (signing up to my Aweber list), they get redirected back to their blog and the redirect contains a Querystring.

    The problem comes from about 1 in 30 users getting a 404 error when they do this. I’ve done extensive testing and I can’t get this problem to resolve, and what’s worse is that there doesn’t seem to be a pattern that causes it.

    Help!

    That would be excellent IF I had control of everybody’s WordPress config. However, I can’t tell people to edit their config to unset the “name” param in the querystring so they can activate my plugin.

    That would work on my sites, but I’d rather the WP guys fix it if at all possible…

    Yes, it is definitely a bug.

    If it’s a bug, I am surprised it’s been around for such a long time: The oldest thread on the topic I found is from version 2.2 !!

    But if it is by design, I really wonder: WHY !?

    Anyway, glad I’m not the only one regarding this behaviour as a problem 😉

    Maybe it’s a bug by design ?

    Hèhè… like an easter-egg?

    Maybe the name parameter was/is needed to pull this one off: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkF4WLSkz-U … And we are now witnessing a “Matrix 404 side-effect” 😉
