probleme author search

hello I have a problem with the function search by author, when I do it I see in the bar &author=1 but I have the error 403 if I modify the figure by the username of the person I have all the articles that person did.

so how can I do it when the author has chosen in the advanced search to automatically indicate the username and not the uidd (same thing in the article when you click on More by demon577

I am not sure if I follow.

The advance search allows you to pick the username in a dropdown box. In the URL of that page it uses the id. You can change the ID to another but cannot use the name.

Ids are better to use since names can contain characters that would need to be encoded.

the id gives me a 403 error. searching before not the name does not give me the error

It's hard to say without more information. Can you share a URL?

403 Forbidden – you don't have permission to access this resource is an HTTP status code that occurs when the web server understands the request but can't provide additional access.

Is your Geeklog Config option "Search Login Required?" set to "No Login Required"? (it most likely is since it wouldn't cause these type of errors just double checking)

After reviewing things its not Geeklog causing the errors. It doesn't throw 403 errors based on URL variables for the advanced search.

Also the same 403 happens if you change the topic or type as well.

It must be the server doing it. Either an htaccess setting or something else?

For example this also throws a 403 error (refine a search)

Good to know. So the server had some firewall rules in place meant for WordPress that was blocking the page request.
