  • The query string parameters have the same name.
  • The query string parameters have different values.

MORE INFORMATION

If you use a framed site, or if you use the WoodgroveNet sample site, the hotfix does not resolve this problem. To work around this problem, append the query string to the URL that is passed to the contents frame. To do this, modify the Frameset.aspx file as follows:
  1. Locate the following code:
    <frame name="contents"
    				src="<%=objContentChannelItem.UrlInner %>">
  2. Replace the previous code with the following code:
    <frame name="contents"
    				src="<%=objContentChannelItem.UrlInner + '?' + Request.QueryString
    				%>">
If you do not use this workaround, the other query strings are not propagated to the frames.

Note This problem occurs only when you have more than one query string parameter.
