Odd bug that only occurs immediately after login.
« on: July 19, 2018, 12:13:42 pm »
I've noticed this happening only on the first page that is loaded immediately after I login. If I revisit the page any time afterward it seems to correct itself.

All of the links in the sidebar seem to have a space after my name when I click on them. Say I want to browse through the Intellivision games I own, the anchor looks like this in the code...

<a href="https://vgcollect.com/Xsuicidesn0wmanx /intellivision" title="Intellivision [NA]">Intellivision [NA]</a>

Every link I click on takes me to a 404 page because of this and you'll notice the %20 from the space in the url up in the address bar.

Been noticing it for a while, didn't say anything until I could confirm that it only happens immediately after logging in.

Similar issue previously corrected. But make sure if you are using a remembered login, autocomplete, etc, you probably have a space in your field data.

Ok, that makes sense, but I'd be worried that data being gathered by the form isn't being sanitized. I would expect the extra space to be cleaned up before I ever get to that next page.

I do not know the details on his this was fixed, but I believe it is only effecting how the initial side menu is built. The portion specifically regarding the login process has been fixed long ago.
