Announce List - 404 Error


#1

Hello!

I’m having trouble setting up a Dreamhost Announce List. This is the submission page:

http://devastatorquarterly.com/list

Here is the code I’m using, which I adapted from the Support Wiki:

Name: E-mail:

The form works and sends data correctly to the Announce List database. The problem is that the code sends the visitor to a URL like:

http://devastatorquarterly.com/list-subscribe?address=example%40notrealemail.com&name=Example%20Name&code=3

…which results in a 404 error. I’d like the user to go to:

http://devastatorquarterly.com/list-subscribe

…which is a working page I set-up. I’ve been trying to figure this out for hours. Does anyone have a solution? Two people on the Talk section of the support wiki had the same problem:

http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Talk:Announcement_Mailing_List

This site of mine is hosted on Tumblr.

Thank you!

I’m creating a work-around solution, where the confirmation/action pages are hosted on a different server, which can handle the query string in the URL.

However, I’d still prefer a solution that keeps the user on the same site, if somebody can think of one.

Any luck with this? I am having a similar problem just this morning.

As far as we can tell, this is an issue with Wordpress rewrite rules conflicting with the “name” parameter that Announce lists pass to the page.

It looks like there may be a clue over at wordpress but I have no idea what to do with it!

I use variable passing within wordpress on dreamhost - it works for plugins & within my menus so I’m not at all clear where the problem is.
