[CRITICAL] If custom authority URL is URL encoded, GSA screws it up when posting

edited July 2017 in Bugs
I have this URL in my authority links list:ūtis
in GSA:

This is the one that gets posted:ūtis (which is 404)

But it should have posted this URL:ūtis

    please stop posting topics with "[critical] or whatsowever as tag, If you think it's a bug ok...we can investigate. If it's critical or not, let me decide.

    Anyway, send me the project backup please as when it's url encoded, it should be fine.

  • GintasGintas Lithuania
    sure, lol. Will send that backup to your pm.
  • SvenSven
    your backup didn't have the authority urls added!?
  • GintasGintas Lithuania
    It had to have them. I'm attaching that authority URLs list this way then:
  • SvenSven
    and you clicked EDIT and added it that way? Well that should not give you any link here at all as the format is incorrect. See here:
  • GintasGintas Lithuania
    No, these are own "authority URLs", I added them here:

    I ticked Own URLs, dialog popped up and I inserted them here. They get posted fine if URL is simple, but if it's something like the one I mentioned in first post, I noticed it gets posted scrambled. Maybe encoding problem or something
  • SvenSven
    it would have really helped to see the original backup with verified urls to review it...if it's like this, i cant do much.

    @Sven I sent to PM a duplicate again, it's a complete duplicate with submitted & verified urls removed, anchors replaced to test and articles removed. I saw this bug on a few serengines websites, one of them was definitely
  • GintasGintas Lithuania
    I pm'd one url to you that was created by SER and has this broken URL
  • GintasGintas Lithuania
    did you manage to get SER to post such an invalid authority url?
  • SvenSven
    sorry, but I need to sleep as well...Im back now in office (9am) and will debug it.
