  • [Bug / Issue] Non rfc compatible URLs while redirecting via HTTP location header

    Hi all,

    we are currently experiencing the problem, that vBulletin (5.3.4 Patch Level 1) does not properly encode URLs.
    Particularly if vBulletin performs a redirect via 301, the URL within the location http response header is not RFC-compatible:

    Example:
    Code:
    GET Request: www.example.com/forum/subforum/subsubforum/12345-materialvertr%C3%A4glichkeit?p=12345#post123453
    HTTP Response = 301 with the following Location header:
    www.example.com/forum/subforum/subsubforum/12345-materialverträglichkeit#post123453
    Since special characters are not allowed by the rfc standard and it lead to several problems with some proxy servers in front of the forum, we would like to bugfix this behavior.
    Are there any known bugs regarding url encoding on the side of vBulletin or any AdminCP settings to do?

    Thank you for your help and best regards

    There are no settings or configurations to change this in the software.
