I have the latest version of Linkfreeze. I have URL's coming in to linkfreeze like this:

www.site.com/page.asp?tdate=1/1/2007

My schema is to use slashes, so I have an ISAPI rule to convert / to %2f.

So my final URL looks like this:

www.site.com/page.htm/date/1%2F1%2F2007

The issues is that the tdate variable is not working. Looking at the IIS logs I see that it is issuing a 301 redirect for that URL to this:

www.site.com/page.htm/date/1&1=2007

Obviously, it is translating %2F back to / and then converting / to ?,& and =.

Please advise.

Thanks!

This is by design. You cannot have substitution characters in parameters and values. You may try to change date format separator.

The question was about the charachter entity in the URL, %2F. Is this also not allowed? I remember this working in a older version.

This behavior was changed because some new browsers, including latest versions of IE, started to encode various characters in links and URLs without asking any permission and thus making entire site with LinkFreeze misbehave. So now (and according to the HTTP standard) LinkFreeze treats www.site.com/page.htm/date/1%2F1%2F2007 and www.site.com/page.htm/date/1/1/2007 as two identical URLs.
To resolve your problem you need to use some another date format separator. For example use dot.
