 Project:      Drupal
 Version:      cvs
 Component:    search.module
 Category:     bug reports
 Priority:     normal
 Assigned to:  Anonymous
 Reported by:  wulff

 Status:       patch
 Attachment:   http://drupal.org/files/issues/search.module.patch (740 bytes)

Searching for a date, e.g. "14/05/2005", results in a 404 error.

search.module redirects to http://drupal.org/search/node/14%2F05%2F2005
which isn't handled correctly by mod_rewrite.

The attached patch replaces all occurrences of '%2F' in the query with

A test query for '1/2 1~2' results in a redirect to
http://drupalhead.local/search/node/1/2+1%7E2 which is handled
correctly by mod_rewrite.
