Encoded Characters in Reports - %20 or %2F

If you see %20 or %2F in your Angelfish reports, these represent encoded characters.

Angelfish automatically decodes a single level of encoded characters during processing, but web browsers occasionally encode special characters.  This adds another "level" of encoding to a URL.

For example:

If the URL contains %252F (which is an encoded version of %2F or the forward slash '/'), the processing engine will decode the single level and Angelfish will display %2F in the reports.

This URL request:

www.example.com/imagehandler.aspx?img=%252Fphotoessay%252F2013-03%252Fpics

Will look like this in the Content reports:

www.example.com/imagehandler.aspx?img=%2Fphotoessay%2F2013-03%2Fpics

 

"%2F" represents an encoded forward slash (/).  If you're an Angelfish admin, you can "fix" these Pages by creating a Search and Replace filter to replace all occurrences of "%2F" with "/" in the Request Stem field.
