Three dashes in permalink = broken links
|Reported by:||maggiemasetti||Owned by:||NASA|
In the past Wordpress would generate a permalink for us. This was never an issue until we upgraded til Wordpress 3 - now the links that WP itself generated, which have three dashes in them, are broken.
The browser URL bar says this:
But when I cut/paste it, it comes across as this:
Either way, WP can apparently no longer parse three dashes and gives us an error that says "Not Found. Sorry, you are looking for something that isn't here." However, this entry is very much there - and we didn't create the URL, WP did. And it used to work just fine.
So now, we are left with the option of changing the existing link ourselves, but that will also break any links to this page.
We optimally need WP to fix it such such that the site can once again interpret permalinks that were created by WP with three dashes in them.
Currently we are using WP 3.2.1.
