Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.
In fixing Item2650, I noticed that from the form
<form name="newtopic" action="%SCRIPTURLPATH{"edit"}%/%WEB%/">
       <input type="hidden" name="formtemplate" value="TestForm" />
       New topic name <input type="hidden" name="topic" value="FormInitXXXXXXXXXXX" />
       <input type="hidden" name="OperatingSystem" value="OsMacOS,OsSolaris" />
       <input type="submit" class="twikiSubmit" value="Create" />
the value of field OperatingSystem was OsMacOS%2COSSolaris. In lib/TWiki/Form.pm, we tend to look for " , ", not for %2C. I don't know why the %2C shows up in the field, but we might want to check whether there are areas that could bite us here.

In the fix discussed, I explicitly put a check for both the comma and %2C, but there are no other places in lib/TWiki/Form.pm where this is done.

The value where? The encoding/decoding of parameters in POSTs should be hidden entirely in CGI. If an encoding is leaking into the code, there may be a problem in CGI...


I am not sure I understand the question... I had to explicitly put a check in the code to look for the encoded comma which does not seem to be good.... -- TW

No, it doesn't sound good. Can you describe a testcase? I can't reproduce this....


Thomas, any chance of that testcase? Otherwise I'm going to have to close this, as i can't reproduce it. Thanks.
