I don't know if this has been already pointed out, I made a search and didn't find anything. So, here it is:
There is a tiny problem with the database CGI code, it is not backwards compatible. Often, in the forum, users refer to the database with a link and I've notice there are two kinds of links...
1. Right now, we often find this kind of link, this link works: http://twistypuzzles.com/cgi-bin/puzzle.cgi?pkey=651
2. But, in older posts, I see this kind of link that doesn't work: http://twistypuzzles.com/cgi-bin/puzzle.cgi?pid=651
So I have to go up to the address bar and change the parameter from pid
. No problem, but it is just a little bit annoying.
I have a simple solution (in pseudo code)... at the beginning of puzzle.cgi
, we need to verify if pid
exists as a parameter, if that's the case, then pkey
gets the value from pid
and both parameters/variables work.
Let me know what you think.
