Call Text when links have get data especially, they need the .php link to work. Is there a setting we need to change, or is this among the list of bugs we're going to have to fix?
Action History
Jul 26, 2014 I noticed this happening on a few pages, but not all: I think this version of apache selects a different file than before, when it has multiple choices of extensions. Let's do a list of which pages break and we'll see how to fix it. (ADM Licah Fox)
Jul 27, 2014 yeah, the /rpg/chars/editAbilities page tends to break if the previous linking pages doesn't have the .php extension.

So far it's anything that links with a get variable in the link needs the .php extension. (ADM Joshua Hawkins)
Jul 27, 2014 Okay, so with editAbilities, I would venture a guess that Apache now, for some weird reason, selects .org.php instead of .php. We should either rename old code to not have periods or remove it after inspecting for possible reasons to keep. I saw this happen with a couple other instances of files with extension .old and so forth. (ADM Licah Fox)
Aug 03, 2014 Now that we know what causes it, we can fix them easy enough. Closing this. (ADM Joshua Hawkins)
