BUG: canot use custom URL.

Postby covert » Fri Aug 05, 2011 6:46 am

When I pass a customer URL to prowl the URL gets sanitized to be (null). The custom URL is to launch an app called geosphere.

The URL being passed is..

Code: Select all


My current work around is to call a special page that puts the URL into a href and let Safari handle it.

Please fix it.

Quote (") is not a valid URL character. Try URL-encoding the entire URL before passing it through the API. (" is encoded as %22)

Technical note: my guess is NSURL is seeing the full URL and rejecting it, not something at the Prowl level. I can give it a more thorough testing when I get the chance, but since the same URL works sans-quotes I'm guessing this is the case.

Return to “Prowl”
