    Better WP Security, with blocking bad URL phrases enabled, blocks parameters ending in an equal sign (=).

    Better WP Security has a line like this

    RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^.*(\[|\]|\(|\)|<|>|ê|"|;|\?|\*|=$).* [NC,OR]

    I removed |=$, which blocks parameters ending with equals, like


    That comes from a link like

    Suggestion to all plugin writers: specify &s=1 instead of &s (parameters should always have a value).
