ok so it is encoding correctly or so it looks like it when I click the link but for some reason any url with a % in the $_GET variable causing this error:
An appropriate representation of the requested resource /reply.php could not be found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."
For some reason it is only urls with a % in the $_GET variable that are causing this error. Do you have any idea what could be causing this?
