Description

On our site we use the short URLs enabled by the SEO feature. We have used the default TikiWiki .htaccess file.

One of our blogs has grown to a reasonable size and users of it were claiming that the link at the bottom of the page to the next set of entries wasn't working. I confirmed this to be the case.

Looking at the source loaded into my browser for the page on clicking the "next page" button the following link should have been called :

/blog1?offset=20

Manually entering this link did not work either. However if I entered the full URL below I did get the blog posts I was hoping for:

tiki-view_blog.php?blogId=1&offset=20


I therefore suspected that the ReWrite rule was not correct. The standard rule is:

RewriteRule ^blog([0-9]+) tiki-view_blog.php?blogId=$1 [QSA,L]


This standard rule chops off the end of the requested URL after the blog number, thereby removing the &offset=20 parameter.

Solution

The ReWrite rule needs to be expanded to the following to preserve parameters after the blog number:

RewriteRule ^blog([0-9]+)(.*)$ tiki-view_blog.php?blogId=$1$2 [QSA,L]


It is likely that this problem affects many TikiWiki features that use similar ReWrite rules.

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
