|URLencoding works for all characters except / and \||Sam||10/23/12 12:48 AM|
Dear cakephp experts,
While passing parameters through URL, there are cases when the parameters contain funny characters like %$#. This problem is solved when I encode the URL. However, for some reason, characters such as backslash / and forward-slash \ simply do not work on cakephp. All other characters work after encoding the URL.
I have already spent significant amount of time on this problem. Can someone advise?
Thank you very much.

you can either write your own escaping function who takes care of those characters, or better, use base64encode to pass those special character strings via $_GET
but there you also need to tweak it a little bit,
see the CakeDC search plugin for details where I fixed the method to safely encode the / and = chars:
you will then need to decode it again in the view:
