Can't replicate on my 2.3 testbed either. Have you let Matt near your site? ;-)

  • Severity changed from normal to blocker

I can replicate on my blog on trunk:


The difference is with my server setup (multiviews enabled) the index.php/arguments thing works.

However on many, like Dreamhost where Glenda is at, it will return the error above.

Of course if you do it without the index.php it works fine:


But countless themes have the search action include index.php.

That patch seems to do the trick. Needs more testing to see what side-affects it might have.

Tested on:

  • PATH_INFO (/index.php/) permalink structure
  • mod_rewrite permalink structure
  • PATH_INFO (/index.php/) permalink structure with Page on Front
  • mod_rewrite permalink structure with Page on Front

So far so good.
